They did use that skinny font, but I can't place the year that they made numbers a little thicker, I'm sure it was sometime this decade.

... I don't think the problem with his jersey is the font. The numbers are supposed to be higher; the blue striping on the jersey is supposed to be centered inside the opening of the 6.

I am wanting to say it was 1997-98 that they changed the font and numbers.

Here's 1996-97

The font is bigger on the numbers, plus in the years prior the names on the back were a little more..."blockier", they look like they've been rounded more, if that makes sense.
