NOTE: This is not official. Not even close. But based on this Tweet from Pirates Equipment/Clubhouse Manager Scott Bonnett, it sure looks like it…

Bonnett quickly deleted the tweet once people noticed and started to freak out….but you can’t erase the internet. The quick deletion leads me to believe that, yeah, we were on to something.

Obviously that shot doesn’t give you the full look, which I would think the Pirates will want to reveal in a more grand fashion. I’m not sure when that would be happening. I’m personally a huge fan, though, and it seems like most people are as well. I do wonder what kind of pants they would pair with those tops…yellow? Black? White? Will there be throwback caps as well? I am looking forward to finding out. I have no doubt this will be a merchandise boon for the Bucs whenever they start selling them.

Unfortunately, based on this image, it looks like the Sunday jerseys from this past year are gone. The rumor is that the new ones will replace those…which is a bummer, but at least they’re being replaced with something equally or even more cool. The camos are back, as are the black, grey, and white jerseys.

In other uniform news, the spring training unis were officially released today:
