The Case for Restoring the Proper Detroit Tigers Home Uniform

It's awfully frustrating how reluctant the Tigers appear to be when it comes to introducing alternate road uniforms, something other teams in the division have embraced to largely positive results. While the home uniform has always been sacred ground (up until 2018, that is), I've always viewed the road uniform as a platform for experimentation. I happen to be a big fan of the current road set, as it nicely blends the 1930s and 40s script with the 70s and 80s colors, but adding one of the 60s or 80s sets in the rotation permanently should've happened years ago.

 

A team that shows restraint in introducing alt uniforms deserves praise.  After all, no team needs an alt, least of all a traditional team.

And while the current road wordmark has the merit of harkening back to the script of the 1930s through 1950s, the road wordmark that was in use from the early 1970s to the early 1990s (as seen on Gibson and on the throwback jersey) is aesthetically superior by a wide margin.  Cursive feels wrong for that team.

Of course, that’s what makes their decision to alter a home uniform design worn every season except one between 1934 and 2017 so baffling
