Tailing the Komets

Which retro jersey do you like?

Which of these jerseys would you like to see the Komets revive someday?

No, I don't know of any intentions they may have to do another third jersey, but it's still a fun topic. I've always been partial to the star K that Chuck Adamson is wearing, the blue and orange that Barry Scully is wearing and the black and orange Colin Chin is wearing. Never been a big fan of white shoulderboards.

Anyone have any preferences?

I'd like to see the Fort/rocketship (Merv Dubchak) in action.

Always loved '85-'87 Blue and Orange with the Big "K"

Anything with the Spaceman, which they have done.

But my absolute favorite is the old Black Fireball from the 90s. One of the hardest to find for collecters...I been searching for one myslef but can't find...anyone have one they'd let go???

What a great Komet era it represented too. I ran into Eric Boguniecki (Now assistant coach for the Bridgeport Sound Tigers) in Worcester and we had a long conversation about Fort Wayne. He said he always loved the Black fireball uniforms there.

Yeah there are some really cool jerseys on there. Is there any of those posters still available to buy?

I like the sweaters worn by Reggie Primeau & Eddie Long.  Of course, I've always liked the Kaptain Komet sweaters.

I like the "FW" lace-up jersey that Guy Dupuis is wearing.

I'd like to see them do the updated Captain Komet as a jersey and ditch the old ones. Never liked the cheesy grin.

Always thought the lace-up was a classy touch, too. Remember when guys used to wear turtlenecks under jerseys?

Pembrooke Era. Classic jersey, color and logo.. The universal multi stripe sock used with both home and away jerseys was the best ever. Even the Midget Komets used those back in the 70's

Not really retro but I loved last years all orange with "KOMETS" diagnal and orange socks.  I think they need more orange in their uniforms.

The red/white/blue state of Indiana logo would be cool, just to remind Evansville who their Daddy is.
