    Turn Ahead the Clock:

    http://youtube.com/watch?v=Kr8KZwf9_VI - a Sportscenter video from 1999 about the promotion

    http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2...8&sportCat=mlb -a recent ESPN.com Page 2 article about the promotion


    Overall- I am so happy that I don't remember this and I hope they never do it again.

    Jeez! Those look like leftovers from the old World League of American Football! (definitely scope out the neon green number in the second pic from the top...and the 'trophy' in the last one, which looks to me like a blue-dyed basketball).

    Anyway, yeah, I HAD forgotten about the 'futuristic' mlb togs...thanks a lot, metsguy!

    I don't remember it either, but this explains DiSarcina's 2000 Topps

    I think that was kind of cool for ONE NIGHT ONLY! I dunno why MLB had to extend that.

    Another board I'm on prompted me to think of this promotion so I looked it up again. Those 22 teams in '99 were pretending to wear uniforms from this season!
