Most unique elements in a team's identity or uniform.

Recommended Posts

Inspired by @WavePunter's "bad design that works"

What are the most distinct and identifiable elements on uniforms? Examples include UCLA's Clarendon numbers, Michigan striped helmet.

Michigan's winged helmet is definitely iconic for them, but it's not unique and they weren't the first to use it.

Similar to Michigan's helmets, Alabama's helmet numbers.. Iconic for them, but not unique to them, and I'm guessing they weren't the first to use them..

The buccaneers numbers. Sure alarm clocks and construction vests beat them to market, but it’s a first in pro football.

Do the Packers get credit for being the first team to use the "pro stripe" on their helmets?

Memphis Grizzlies name under the number. Sure it’s been done by the Kansas City/Omaha/Sacramento Kings but it’s unique for these days

These guys don't get enough credit for innovating helmet logos in the pros...

The Dallas Cowboys used to have their players wear a funny little tie-down on the bottom of the jersey collar:

As far as I know, they were the only team to do this. It seems to have gone away in the flywire and post-flywire eras, though.

Two words: White cleats.

Sorry it may be off the topic, but I wonder if the Bucs the first to use some reflective fabrics as part of the outline of the number? Can't think of whether there's other team have done this.?

Sticking with the Cowboys: 

The name label on the helmet.

Is this only for current jerseys?  Because I've got one that will never...ever...be replicated.  Hopefully.

A thing either is unique or it is not.  Can't be most unique, sorta unique, unique for now....

The A's wearing white cleats is unique to baseball, though.  No other team currently wears white.  Namath wearing white cleats seems to be something unique to himself and not the entire team.
