"Must Own Jerseys"

Recommended Posts

A Just for fun topic on the iconic jerseys in any sport that you consider "must own" and that you would buy/already bought regardless if you like the team or not. Here are a few in my opinion:

1: Warriors "The City" gold unis.

2: NY Rangers Lady liberty

3: Astros tequila sunrise

4: Chargers powder blue

5: Any of the Hartford Whalers Jerseys

1-Orlando Thunder home lime green

2-99 Mighty Ducks alternate white

3-Senators' old laurel jersey

4-Nuggets' current gold rainbow

5-Braves white

honorable mention, only because I didn't want to repeat any of yours: The City, Rangers Liberty, Oklahoma State football's now-old orange, Adelaide Crows blue/red/gold hoops, Port Adelaide Power black

I have not bought a jersey in years.  But if I were granted some amount of money with the instructions to buy exactly five high-quality past or present jerseys of teams I have no interest in, I'd go with:

  • Red Christmas Devils.  Probably just blank; I love the jersey but have no particular affinity for any player.  
  • Padres Road, late 1980s (Gray with brown pinstripes) Tony Gwynn.  
  • Red Sox home jersey.  Again, maybe no player but since they don't use NOB maybe I'd grab a number of, say, David Price.  In the future it would be just a random number, which is fine by me.
  • Red Calgary Flames from before black was added.  Once again, it's about the cool jersey more than any player but maybe I'd go with Lanny McDonald.
  • Yellow LA Kings jersey from pre-Gretzky.  Again, it's not about a player, but maybe I'd go with Marcel Dionne.

I definitely have a lot of jerseys that I've wanted already, a Nino Niederreiter Minnesota Road sweater, a North Stars sweater from the 80's, a Gophers Sweater, and a New Jersey Devils Christmas jersey. But some that I want are

  • A Minnesota Wild Stadium Series Jersey #29 Jason Pominville
  • A 1980 USA Miracle on Ice jersey #21 Mike Eruzione "C"  
  • A San Jose Sharks inaugural Teal Jersey (Or current throwback, I don't care about the shade of teal)
  • A Minnesota Fighting Saints blue jersey... (A Carlson brother maybe? :D)
  • A New York Rangers Blueshirt #27 Ryan McDonagh "C"
  • Winnipeg Jets Blue home #26 Blake Wheeler
  • 2004 Western Confrence All-Star Jersey #35 Dwayne Roloson
  • An Edmonton Oilers white road sweater, either #99 or #97 "C" for the obvious one...

It's definitely longer, but I'll stop there...

With "marled" shirts in popular demand, it seems like the U.S. could bring back something like this rather easily.
