Summary: 1993 marked the first year that Russell Athletic took over full time as the Manufacturer for Game and Authentic Retail use. That aside, it was also a complete redesign for the home and road Jerseys as well as team Logo, Ball Caps, Batting Helmets, etc. Just have a look at the change from 92-93 on the Mariners Archive page and it is pretty clear what those changes are. Since 1993, there has been small details that have changed very little overall for the next 22-plus years.
