Recommended Posts

Don't know if this has been done recently, if so please graveyard it. I thought it'd be interesting to hear everyones favorite/least favorite uniform. Maybe you've forgotten about a great uniform and someone will bring it up here.

My favorite: tough choice, probably the most recent sonics home jersey

Least favorite: tequila sunrise

Giants 70's-80's

Least Favorites:

Current Blackjays

Favorites:

Broncos pre-1996 orange

Panthers current blue alt.

Panthers current white

White Bucs pre-1996

Pistons current

Heat whites with red/orange trim

Least Favorites:

Mid-90s-Lebron's drafting Cavs (though orange/sky blue would be good together, but black?)

Golden Seals, both green/gold and teal/gold

Cleveland Barons

Avalanche, pre-EDGE (mains)

Penguins "skating Penguin" gold jersey

Sharks, post-EDGE (mains)

Rockies

Least Favorites:

Oilers, post-EDGE

Panthers, post-EDGE

Bad song, bad unis. Or quite possibly I dislike the entire pullover/elastic pants era.

I will not split into groups, one best, one worst to cover all of the 4 major sports.

Best uniforms made to date- Current Boston Celtics.

Worst uniforms made to date- Tampa Bay Devil Rays first uniforms with the huge gradient rainbow "Devil Rays" or "Tampa Bay" across the front, cluttered even more by the Sting Ray beneath the words. Classic.

(these are all a matter of my own opinion)

MLB best: Tie between the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Tampa Bay Devils Rays' last set. Think it's safe to say that (or @ least is WAS safe to say) the Pirates OWNED the vested look. Hate that they went away from that. And the Devil Rays' most recent set won points for me in terms of originality in both color and font choice/overall team identity.

MLB worst: Heh...maybe this new Nationals road set. It's never warmed to me. If the Rockies are still doing the black vest/black sleeve thing, then that too.

NBA best: this one's hard, but I think Imma go with the Detroit Pistons here. Simple, but still fresh at the same time. (Something about the double racing stripes, I guess.) Close second: the Memphis Grizzlies before they changed to the official colors of the western conference (blue, blue, and yellow). Speaking of the black sets with the emerald and ruby(?) trim. Most unique scheme I can remember in quite some time.

NBA worst: Whew...I'd say OKC, but that'd be taking the easy way out. So Imma say current Sacramento Kings.

NFL best: Imma put my Buccaneer-ism aside here (Cuz the creamsicles will always be my true #1) and say Jacksonville Jaguars from 1997-2003 (prior to the oversaturation of the black). About as close to a contemporary classic as the NFL had seen. Close second: Kansas City Chiefs. Ain't changed since, well, ever, but still wears well.

NFL worst: Oh boy...Imma just narrow it down to two: the Buffalo Bills' current sets...and the current San Diego Chargers set (INCLUDING the powder blues). I've never warmed to the the Power Ranger look, for some reason.

NHL best: Absolutely, unequivocally, without a doubt in my mind...the Vanbiesrouck-era Florida Panthers. Absolutely, yes. Close second: the original Atlanta Thrashers road jerseys--and even the homes.

NHL worst: heh...hard one. Don't really have one, so if I had to pick, I'd probably say the mustard Predators.

NCAAF best: Seminole pride aside, and I have no idea why these uniforms have stuck to me the way they have, but I'm going with Missouri, followed by, oddly enough, the current Oregon State getup.

NCAAF worst: USC. Sorry...not buying the "classic" aura. Tapered sleeve stripes...regular traditional pants stripe, barely visible helmet logo...and I ain't even gon say nothing bout the facemask.

To all you folks hating on the Astros rainbows... stop going along with what everyone tells you. If you grow an original opinion, you can't help but love what was, when 1st designed, the most original uniform ever.

And all the love for the Seahawks drab all blue stuff? I'll never get it. Maybe its being that close to Canada... makes you think you're a CFL team.

This set kills!

Jose Cruuuuuuuuuuuuuuuz

Joking aside, what this uniform really did for the Astros was give them color in a setting that was about as drab as you could imagine - the 1970's/80's era dome. It was dark, cavernous, and silent (unless you had 45K+ in attendance). Without the rainbows, I'm not sure this era of Astros baseball is discussed by anyone outside of Houston two decades later. What's probably not mentioned enough is how the Astros painted the upper deck seats in a similar rainbow pattern, as well. When I was a youngster, I remember going to games and sitting in the "rainbow" seats, because those were the cheapest.
