Quirkiest Jersey Elements

Recommended Posts

What are the sports jerseys with the quirkiest features in history? Jerseys that have something unusual about them that's unique to them such as an odd striping pattern or color scheme or a logo in a strange place or position. Examples I can think of are the Steelers one-logoed helmets and the London Monarchs old jerseys with the logo on the middle and the number on the shoulder. Have at it!

I liked how the Dallas Stars used to have their logo on the rear hem. Usually that never had anything except the manufacturer logo and the NHL crest.

The Ohio numbers. I can't think of a similar example in any sport. The closest would probably be the Warriors putting the number in the jersey crest, but it's not really the same,

I think ASU puts its captain designations inside Arizona silhouettes.

Really wish the Blue Jackets would have found a way to work that into their uniforms.

An alt someday, or when they eventually get an outdoor game maybe. It seems like an obvious option... capital of the state and all.

The Lightning had stripes on their armpits so that when they raised their arms to celebrate goals, then and only then you would see their armpit stripes of glorious triumph.

The Bears' sleeves was the first thing that came to mind when I saw this thread:

The Islanders' fisherman jerseys were one of the only examples of a uniform in top-level pro sports with an asymmetrical name and number on the back.

Also the St. Louis Blues in the mid 90's. I actually really liked the white jersey in this set. The road jersey was a bit garish with all the red, but toned down a little, it could've looked good.

Iowa Barnstormers jerseys that used to have pilot wings, pants with propellers and pilot goggles on the helmets.

Well, the Blues had asymmetrical numbers but the nameplate was still symmetrical. The Islanders had both.

The Rangers don't have a team logo on the front of the sweater. They don't have a logo anywhere. Instead they have their name placed diagonally across the sweater. I wanna say the Rangers were the first team to have this style. Some teams between then and now have emulated this style but have since abandoned the look (Penguins and Avalanche come to mind). Rangers are the only NHL team today (and probably forever) to keep it which makes them unique to me.
