Good/bad World Series uni matchups

Recommended Posts

In MLB's long history, there have been many World Series uniform matchups that have happened, but more that have not. So. here's a few that I'd think would be good, some not so much, and others....... UGH.

GOOD:
Dodgers/Blue Jays: SO. MUCH. BLUE. GOODNESS.

Mariners/Mets: A modern classic meets a, well, regular classic.

Red Sox/Phillies: So much red here, the Cardinals would be jealous.

BAD:
Rockies/Rays: Purple and navy blue. YIKES.

Royals/Padres: Too aesthetically drab of a matchup.

Diamondbacks/Astros: Would burn a lot of retinas.

I can't think of any UGLY ones.

The Mariners would have to get to the World Series first...Can't believe they are the only team in the MLB with 0 WS appearances...

but to play along:

Good match-up I wanna see: White Sox v. Cubs ( would be a great Chi-Town series and the contrast between the two teams would be awesome.)

Bad match-up I don't wanna see: Orioles v. Giants ( self explanatory, only cool thing would be the Halloween game if it even happened.)

My favorite match-up of all-time that actually happened: 1997 Marlins v. Indians ( those sleeveless beauties that Florida wore were great, and the pre- block "C" Indians were great to see as well.)

The Washington Nationals have yet to appear, either.

That's true I forgot about them. if only 1994 was able to be a full season we might have an Expos banner hanging in Nationals Park.

Too bad the Jays weren't any good in 1994, we might have had an all-Canadian World Series.

I've always thought Mariners/Mets would look great. Though both primarily navy or royal, the teal and orange trims would make for great contrast.

A good classic one off the top of my head would be Braves/Tigers. If Atlanta keeps the navy alt out of it, that'd make for a stunning matchup.

As far as the teams currently in the playoffs, any possibility would look great. It's hard to choose which ones would be best, but if I have to on a pure uniform standpoint, Astros/Cubs looks really good in my head (if both steer clear from alternates).

Okay, I know it's not a World Series match-up, but I just want to say Blue Jays-Royals is going to a beautiful ALCS. Both teams have the best uniforms they've ever had. In fact, the uniforms will look almost identical to what they wore in the 1985 ALCS (at least at a quick glance).

Unpopular shoutout... for some reason I loved this matchup...

I guess because it's probably been the simplest matchup since forever.

(I can't find many small images)

Blue Jays - Braves '92 was nice.

Athletics - Dodgers '89 was amazing.

Red Sox - Mets '86 looked good.

I think Rays/Phillies in '08 would've been really nice had the Rays not rebranded. Green-Black-Blue trim vs. Red? Yes please.

As it was though, it was on the low end of "okay". The Phillies really carried that matchup as high as they could.
