The outer stripes on the Dolphins pants were mismatched from the rest of the uniform through this period, sometimes looking almost yellow.

Hmm - some possible explanations:

1.  Different pants material fades out more quickly - or pants were used for multiple seasons causing the fade-out.
2.  Different pants supplier screws up the order with the lighter orange.
3.  Photo quality - faded photos, bad resolution of digital images, etc.

Personally I always thought it was just the difference between dyed fabric on the pants and screen printing/heat press vinyl on the jerseys and the vinyl decals/stripes on the helmets.

I think I'm leaning toward #2. Look at 1978 and 1979 as an example. They switched to pants with wider stripes in 1979 but the color was still way off.
