Ranking the Best Sports Uniforms in the History of New York City

New York City has the richest history of professional sports than any other metropolis in the world. The Big Apple is host to nine teams across four major pro sports.

Consequently, New York also has the richest history of pro sports uniforms.

There are the New York Yankees and New York Mets, New York Giants and New York Jets, New York Knicks, Brooklyn Nets, New York Rangers, New York Islanders and New Jersey Devils.

Aside from the Islanders' Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, which is way out on Long Island, you can reach any of those teams' homes by driving no more than a dozen miles from Grand Central Terminal.

There have been so many glorious jerseys donned by these nine teams, it's hard to wrap your mind around them.

Some of the uniforms have been sublime while others have been loud and obnoxious. But what could be more New York?

I have patented a groundbreaking algorithm that computes the originality, stylishness and legacy of each team's uniforms to decide the best of the best. Each jersey worn by every team has been calculated using this incredible formula.

The NASA-esque complexity of the results would be mind-boggling and take up many hundreds of pages, so I have distilled the ratings to just 25 concise slides.

These are the 25 New York uniforms that no one within reach of a commuter train from Penn Station will ever forget.
