It could be my imagination, but it seems that pro sports in the U.S. has become obsessed with re-introducing a variety of throwback jerseys.
I don't know if this is a marketing ploy or not, but it has certainly led to an array of eye-gougingly terrible uniforms.
Of course, some old jerseys would just be too preposterous to trot out these days, like the Chicago White Sox in shorts circa 1976.
Other throwbacks seemed unspeakably awful when they were first thrown up (is that the inverse verb tense?)—like the Pittsburgh Steelers "bumble bee" uniforms—but then they started to grow on me in a weird way.
And then there's the garish jerseys that beautifully define an era, like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers "Creamsicle" getup.
But here, for your viewing pleasure, are the ugliest throwback jerseys ever worn in the NFL, NHL, MLB and NBA.
