I'm fascinated by baseball uniforms and do a lot of reading on them. I also kind of collect jerseys (really only Pirates jerseys, though). I've been thinking a little about this lately and wanted to see what everybody else thought too.

Use this thread to post what you think are the best or worst baseball uniforms. They can be current, old, alternates, throwbacks, classics, etc.

This White Sox uniform has to be the worst of all time.

I like the '60s Bucco vests, but not their recent reincarnation. They had to make them too wide to fit the player names, and that ruined the look.

Yankee pinstripes are the closest thing baseball has to a tux, and Detroit's home duds are a close second.

The Tigers do have a great uniform as well. Again, I like the White Sox uniform better because of the black and white rather than blue and white. The Tigers uniform is interesting because without the piping it would be almost exactly the same as the Yankees uniform just without the pinstripes.

Chalk this style up on my worst of all time list. I don't know why they thought this would be a good idea, but I think these are probably the most hideous uniforms to ever grace a baseball field at just about any level:

I know that I will probably catch some flack for this but I think that the pill box hats that went with the uniform you pictured and the hat I have pictured below are the ugliest hats of all time.

Another disaster in my mind is cream uniforms. I absolutely hate the way these look. The Padres have had a ton of uniform flops including camouflage, however, the cream is pretty awful in and of itself:

Image

The Giants uniform is a better color because the fact that it's cream is less noticeable:

I don't mind the cream associated with the Giants. I agree with the Padres though...very tacky.

Pirates vest unis in the 60's were the light cream colored. I liked them best.

I actually think that currently we have some of the nicest uniforms as well. Although I like the vests I am pretty happy with what we have now with the sleeves. I also appreciate the black alternate which I was pretty skeptical about before last season.

I also couldn't resist posting this picture of McCutchen:

Or this one :)...in fact it seems like McCutchen would look good in any uniform we put on:

Good call, NDL. I usually don't like the dark top over the light pants but the Pirates new (last season) black tops are very nice. I think the gray pants work well with the dark top.

I'm also guessing that I am the only one but I didn't mind this look:

I like that Blue Jays cap. In fact, I think they should have stuck with that. I really don't like the blue uniforms though. I guess once in a while it's ok to bust them out but as an everyday thing I just don't like them.

What I really don't like, though, is the old blue/gray color teams used to wear as road uniforms:

Those red Pirates uniforms were horrible. I can't recall, did they wear those every Friday home game? Yuck.

One of the uniforms I like will be met with disdain by others on this board. Son played for a youth baseball team, the A's. They modeled the unis (obviously) after the Oakland A's, and I came to like the uniform quite a bit.

Are you going to tell me you don't like those uniforms?!?!?

The Pirates new black jerseys have grown on me. I hated them when they revealed them last year.

Also, this has to be the best McCutchen photo of all time:

I'm not sure why but I've always enjoyed the 80s Padres look.
