Racing Stripes on MLB Jerseys

Recommended Posts

I thought back to how many teams had racing stripes, and really only five came to mind. The Mets, Indians, Phillies, Tigers, and Astros. Any others?

The Mets, Indians and Expos I thought it worked great for.

Astors I thought were good.

Phillies are so/so. I like their current ones better.

Those Tiger jerseys should never see the light of day again.

It's funny how short-lived designs can be forgotten quickly, especially if it's not your favorite team. I have no memory whatsoever of that road Tigers uniform with the racing stripes. All the other teams I can recall, but not Detroit.

Don't forget the LA Dodgers' powder blue alts. And, if we're allowed to go way back, the St. Louis Cardinals circa 1946.

They were a dark(ish) cream color I do believe.

Game 3, 1986 NLCS, overcast in Flushing. Also seems pretty close to white.

Also, NO PEPPER GAMES. It looks so weird without rolling ads or a green screen, but so right.

Before teams starting covering up the backstop in ad space. Such a nice sight.

I was always under the impression it was white, but if they want to say ultra light grey I'm not going to argue. I view the ultra light grey thing as a way of saying we wanted to wear white on the road and this is the lightest color we could get away with.

Also is it just me or is the guy from the second on the left in the first row asleep?

Loved the Mets racing stripe uniforms, as well as the Indians.

Wish they Mets would bring those back for a game.

The team had two sets of nearly identical uniforms in that style: the home whites and the road off-whites (Henderson's description of the color). If you don't see them next to each other or see the teagging, it is hard to tell the difference. The off-white looks like a whiter version of cream.
