1989 Nashville Sounds (ProCards)

You'd never know it from their uniforms, but the Sounds were the affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds. The Reds have such distinct uniforms, some of the best in baseball, and their color scheme is pretty obvious - RED. So it's disappointing to see their minor league team wearing generic blue uniforms, looking like the Texas Rangers or something.
Doug "Eyecharts" Gwosdz - last played in the majors in 1984, and last seen on a major league card that year, but still bouncing around the minor leagues five years later.

  1. The Nashville Sounds are one of the eschelon of teams that almost never changes their brand when changing affiliation. Prior to their deal with the Reds, they were the Yankees, and now they're with the Brewers. All that over 30 years and very little by way of changes to the team's brand. Similar teams would be the Columbus Clippers, Toledo Mud Hens, Indianapolis Indians, Arkansas Travelers, Asheville Tourists, Buffalo Bisons, Durham Bulls, etc.
