Some of you have fond memories of the Seals and their uniforms and I thought it would be interesting to take a poll and get some feedback as to other posters preferences regarding the Seals uniforms and why a particular version was favored. My earliest recollections of the Seals uniforms was the gold and green version. At the time I wasn’t even aware of the original uniforms worn by the team when they joined the NHL as an expansion franchise for the 1967-68 season. I have to admit that I really didn’t care too much for the gold and green version due to the fact that when I was playing community club hockey at the time, our team was gold and green and the colors seemed a little bland compared to the other teams we were playing. I think the original Seals uniforms look pretty good but my favorite version was when they switched from the gold and green to the white and teal. I was never too fond of yellow as a jersey color (although for some reason I always liked the LA Kings all-yellow uniforms) and I thought the Seals change to white looked fresh and modern when the new jerseys were introduced for the 1974-75 season. Below are the different versions of the Seals uniforms over the seasons. Some changes were minor such as going from a tie-down neck to a V-neck or the original logo changing from a ‘C’ to an ‘O’. California Seals 1967 - The team opened play in 1967 as the California Seals, and the crest was initially a "C" with a seal leaping out of it. Oakland Seals 1967-69 - With the team struggling at the gate, it would rechristen itself as the Oakland Seals on December 8, 1967 The ends of the "C" on the crest would close, forming an "O." Also around that time on the home green uniform, the team added a white inner layer to the existing blue number on the back to answer complaints from their fans that the numbers were hard to make out. The addition of the inner white layer created the double outline effect. Oakland Seals 1969-70 - The stripes and the shoulder yoke on the green (home) jersey undergo a slight change, as do the sock stripes. California Golden Seals 1970-73 - Flamboyant businessman Charlie O. Finley buys the team in 1970 and renames it the California Golden Seals. The uniforms undergo a complete redesign, and the colors become kelly green and gold. Those seemed to have been Finley's favorite colors, as he dressed the two other teams he owned -- Major League Baseball's Oakland A's and the American Basketball Association's Memphis Tams -- in the exact same colors. Not pictured: the white skates the team wore with these uniforms. California Golden Seals 1973-74 - The tie-down neck becomes a V-neck. California Golden Seals 1974-76 - Finley sells the team in 1974. With that sale, kelly green gives way to teal as the team's new primary color.
