Blue Jays Unveil New Powder Blue Uniform, Tweak Logos for 2020

January 18, 2020 - 16:34 PM

They’re calling it #NewBlue but for fans of the Toronto Blue Jays, it sure feels familiar. This morning the Blue Jays unveiled an alternate powder blue uniform for the 2020 season before a crowd of media and fans here at […]

The Blue Jays were, in my opinion, a team that made sense having a powder blue option, so I like.  I'm still wary of the full powder blue-at-home thing -- I still think that look should be reserved for the road -- but since a lot of Blue Jays fans have been clamoring to see the team in powder blue, they might as well wear it in front of said fans at home.  (And there is that precedent from 2008-2010).

This new Blue Jays uni makes me wonder -- isn't there a team still out there going to unveil a road-only powder blue uniform?  I thought after the Rangers unveiling that there was a team with a powder blue alternate (maybe it was Toronto?) and a team with a powder blue road in the offing.

Are the rangers and rays jealous now? The jays have 3 shades of blue on the uniforms now. The rays are the only team that makes sense of powder blue. It’s one of the team colors. The royals forced it and the rangers really forced it and the cards, Phillies, and jays are capitalizing on a trend of 80s road uniforms. It’s not really their colors, just replicating old trendy road uniforms. I think we’ve entered PBFPBS territory in baseball just how BFBS and GFGS took over college football. The nfl is getting really sloppy with monochrome and leotards and the nba, well, who knows what the teams colors are anymore between nicknames and city colors and ads. I guess hockey now is the most “normal” looking league.

 

EDIT- here’s another gripe. If you made a helmet just for this, why doesn’t it match the cap?

Don't love that. Just about all of the modern "powder blue" jerseys use shades that are too saturated, and I don't think they work nearly as well outside of the pullover era.

 

The less said about ramping up the navy use, the better. Weird choice given their divisional rivals.

Someone on a discord thread pointed out that the helmet is matte black.... damn it Blue Jays, you nearly pulled off a look that everyone can get aboard...

 

Looks like a matte navy. Matches the navy blue in the logo. 

 

 

The hat is 95% similar to the Anaheim Angels' 98-01 alternate hats...back when people were like "there's no periwinkle in baseball"

Powder blue is already becoming tired, but the Blue Jays don’t look nearly as bad as the Rangers.

 

The navy blue hat with the powder blue bill looks good. The Rays should have done that years ago, but that’s not a new opinion.

 

The Jays swapping their primary and secondary logos is the wrong move.

I visited the Louisville Slugger factory as a kid in 1978, and they had all 26 teams' authentic caps under a glass display case.  I was amazed to be just inches away from these beautiful things, and was disappointed to learn that they were not for sale.  Flash forward to 1982, and a friend bought the first authentic I'd ever seen first-hand, and it was glorious.  It was a bright red Cardinals cap, and my friends and I couldn't stop admiring it.

Powder blue pants look awful. Seriously, the monochrome powder blue trend was never good. It needs to stay in the past with pullovers and stirrups. 
 

That jersey would look infinitely better paired with their normal white pants.
