All of these come from the Nuggets page (http://www.chriscreamer.com/team.php?id=229) at Chris Creamer's sportslogos.net (http://www.chriscreamer.com/index.php) I'm going to do some image posting only in this top post here, just because I think it's necessary for the side-by-side comparison of old and new.

The changes are subtle, most involving replacing royal blue with navy blue. I really do like the new uniforms, though. The contrasts are sharper, and they've replaced the old "DN" mountain peak logo with the newer alternate pickaxe logo. And judging from the "2003/04 - 2007/08" on the main Nuggets page there, it appears that they've completely retired the "DN" - a very good move, imho. I think it was kind of cheesy. They've also put an additional pickaxe above the player name, and the new partial below the waistband on the back of the trunks. There appear to be no changes made to the alternate uniforms.

Okay, here we go...

I wonder how many non-Nuggets fans are going to tell the difference

Or even Nuggets fans, for that matter. None of the main colors have been changed. Season ticket holders and more avid fans will probably figure it out (if they happen not to hear of it before the season starts), but the average casual fan probably won't even notice.

edit-

But I do like the new designs. They're just a little... sharper.

so even someone who is a season "nose-bleeds" holder will be able to tell the difference?

Possibly. I think the lettering will appear much more vivid to those with good eyesight, even from far away. The black border lines make them much more distinctive.

And of course home court fans won't see the road jerseys on display, but those actually appear to be a slightly deeper shade of blue, if it's not just that the colors are off on the gifs.

On SportsLogos they already said the colors of the away uniform are still the same, they just screwed up the color on the original away powder blue jerseys. The only real difference is the side colors featuring the dark blue like the alternate jerseys, and the alternate logo on the shorts.

The blue is just...darker =_=". No way I'm spending 70 dollars on a new jersey though.

You must've not read my post. The color of the blue will be EXACTLY the same this season on the away jersey, it was just a screwup on Sportslogos.net. The only difference is the alternate logo on the shorts and the line piping on the side which looks like the alternate jersey's side piping and the newish font.

Considering everyone on the team has one the logo should just be a headband

J.R. shedded his headband towards the end of last season.

And sorry C-Dub, but I can't stand those orange jerseys - and we lose every time they wear them. I liked the 2005 retro (http://www.nuggetsinsider.com/img/misc/uniform_retro_2005.jpg).

Just the opposite. Can't remember which game, but he had a rough 1st half, then at halftime he left his headband in the locker room by mistake, and came out and shredded and helped lead the Nugs to a win. Never wore one again after that.

So you see, he's appeasing the basketball gods.

haha my feelings exactly!

on topic, there are obviously close to no changes but i like the slightly bolder look. Also, I always loved the navy blue alternates...i feel like they're the best jerseys in the L. I also always liked out home whites...

haha, i love those orange ones, they are really hard to get on ebay too. they either cost an arm and a leg or they arent authentic like all my jerseys are.
those 2005 ones aarent bad, i dont think i ever saw them wear them though, considering ive only watched NBA since AI got traded to Denver.....
i love the dark blue alts. too, they are sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet!
