Bucks new road uniforms -- 1970s "traveling greens"?


It's generally assumed that the Bucks new traveling road uniforms will feature red as their primary color, right? Well, that has been the buzz out of Milwaukee. Not so fast.

The Bradley Center is selling new "Michael Redd jersey t-shirts" (pictured above). The shirts clearly feature the new block lettering and numbering, but the primary color is hunter green. In fact, the shirts are the same color as my throwback "Kareem Abdul-Jabbar jersey shirt" which I purchased from distant-replays.com about a year ago. This makes me believe that the Bucks may be returning to their legendary "traveling greens".

Bucks Trivia: The phrase "traveling greens" was coined by the original "Voice of the Bucks" Eddie Doucette.

If that were the case, I would love it. The nostalgia of the old Oscar Robertson hunter green roadies would be a sweet reconnection to what were the Bucks original salad days. A red look would also be okay, too, but I think green is more fraught with historical meaning for Antlerheads.

At any rate, the photo above at least gives you a feel for the new numbering and lettering. If you search the June file on this blog, you can see my speculative depictions of the new home and away jerseys, in both green and red versions.

Hey Man, love your blog, lots of good thoughts and ideas. Excited for the next season, lets see what the Bucks can do with a revamped roster. Also, I agree, the Green road uniforms would look good, but you have to at least throw in a red alternate, since red has been infused into the scheme.
