What, in your opinion, is the most 1990s uniform of all time? A few nominations from me:

---Mighty Ducks' "Wild Wing" alternate: http://s19.photobucket.com/user/spyboy1/media/TSG%20Blog/SelanneWildWing-1.png.html

---Villanova men's hoops 1994-95 road jerseys: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1666851-ranking-the-10-ugliest-college-basketball-uniforms-in-history/page/2

---Kentucky's "claw mark" road jerseys: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1666851-ranking-the-10-ugliest-college-basketball-uniforms-in-history/page/4

---Kentucky's "denim" jerseys: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1666851-ranking-the-10-ugliest-college-basketball-uniforms-in-history/page/8

---Toronto Raptors' first few seasons

---New England Patriots' 1993 home

---New England Patriots' 1996 home or road

---Any of MLB's "Turn Ahead the Clock" sets

---New York Islanders' infamous "Fisherman" jerseys

---Carolina Panthers' whole set from inaugural season until logo change

---Something else altogether?

If it helps, you can go sport-by-sport, and even separate between professional and amateur. I'd also be interested to see people's opinions of the "most 80s" and "most 70s" uniforms out there, though I myself was just born in '84.

As far as wordmarks go, I don't think anything can challenge the Panthers' pre-logo-change script: http://www.sportslogos.net/logos/view/351/Carolina_Panthers/1996/Wordmark_Logo%C2'>

Holy CRAP! I don't think I'd ever seen that second one before. The D-Backs should've made that a regular part of their uni lineup. It's not just super-'90s, it's also super-Southwestern.

Speaking of super-'90s uniforms with a Southwestern theme, I forgot to mention that bizarre Coyotes sweater.

Arizona (Phoenix) Coyotes 90s set and St. Louis Blues unused 3rd jersey, you could maybe include their real 90s uniforms too. 90s NBA uniforms and courts were also very colorful and crazy.

"...very colorful and crazy." That's what it comes down to, isn't it? Till about 1997 or 1998, when BFBS, along with a wave of teams darkening their primary colors, began to be noticeable. Then the early 2000s (when I was in high school) was notorious for its conspicuous LACK of color, and needlessly robotic-feeling designs.

This without a doubt:

It hits all the required Nineties uniform tropes:

1. Teal!

2. Cheesy cartoonish logo

3. Too many colors

4. Goofy number font

5. Bad, asymmetrical team name font

I'd like to see them bring this back as a throwback.

Good nomination. I remember being irked when it first came out---I didn't like the logo and I HATED the change to the Pistons' basic blue-and-red. Even though I was just a kid, I knew that when you have that strong a visual identity you have to stick with it, and I loved their previous logo too. Never been a Pistons fan, but I like to see every team have good unis.

The funny thing about the Pistons set is that I feel the logo was the right direction to take, and was even more so validated when they updated it to go with the throwback color return. It actually gave the team some sort of decent branding imagery rather than simply a basketball and text. When your team's name is auto-themed, it's just screaming for something to fit that idea. The fact that for years (and even now) they sported a logo devoid of any personality whatsoever, despite a name that begs for some sort of personality, drives me crazy. The Pistons were right to go back to thier old colors and uniform (modernized of course), and carrying over the horse completed the identity. But scrapping it to go back to simply a basketball+text stripped the Pistons of, ironically, the only thing they ever needed in the first place - a decent, relevant logo.

Oh, and my contribution (on the phone so no pics): the Shawn Bradley shooting stars (or whatever :P) 76ers uniforms. I can't think of anything more horrendously 90's than that.

I honestly don't understand what drove the Pistons to use teal and add yellow in the first place. I mean, swap the teal for blue/navy and the yellow for gray/silver and you have a modernized look that still holds onto tradition (see: their updated logo before they went back to a standard text logo). There was absolutely no reason to go for teal and add yellow.

The Spurs fushia floor was perfect,I've have to go with the Pacers mid-90's unis.That thing is a beauty,though the Hawks,the Suns and the Pistons were the 90's uniforms.
