Quirkiest Jersey Elements


Recommended Posts

The White Sox wore numbers on their pants not only for the 1980s softball jerseys, but also for the traditional button-downs that followed them from 1987 to 1990.


The Chicago Wolves used to have reflective material in the eyes on their crest. And this was in the '90s, long before weird materials became the norm.


Many linemen on the Chicago Bears used to have visible lines across the shoulders of their jerseys, from reinforcements that were stitched in.

I knew the Angels had an "LA" hat with a halo, but didn't know about the "CA" hat...


That was a pretty brilliant little part of the uniform.  I'm not sure I'd want it to come back full time, but I'm surprised they've never done that to a BP cap or something.


One quirk that I though was just "quirk for quirk's sake" was the angled stripes on the first flames jerseys to feature black.

Glacier twill was unique and appropriate for the Avalanche.  The Penguins would follow suit for their alternate a few years later but Colorado was the first.



Not twill related, but the Islanders used that same exact font (which looks pretty Avalanchey) for their A in 1995-96, and maybe the start of the 1996-97 season (the patch year below), but changed the font of that one letter perhaps mid-season?

I wanna say the Rangers were the first team to have this style.

The Rangers weren't even the first team in New York to do it. The New York Americans had their team name on the front the season before the Rangers started playing.

The Isles also used glacier twill for the Fisherman jerseys.

And the Penguins used it at least until the early 2000s. I've never seen a 2002-2007 jersey in person before, and I don't know if they used it on their first Edge jerseys, but the throwbacks don't use glacier twill.
