The 25 Worst Jerseys in Sports History
While many experts have questioned the Denver Broncos selection of Tim Tebow in the first round, there is no doubt the Broncos have gotten their money's worth in jersey sales.
In recent weeks the No. 15 Tebow jersey has become the all-time top selling jersey for an NFL rookie.
Over the years loyal fans from all sports show their support by purchasing their team's jersey. No matter the record or the players, true fans support their team no matter what.
For some teams over the years it has become rather difficult for fans to support their teams. Not because of their record, but because of the sheer atrocity of their jerseys.
From the NBA to the NHL to nearly every other professional sport, there have truly been some hideous jerseys.
Here is a list of the 25 worst jerseys in sports history.
No. 25: Montreal Canadiens, 2001
In 2001, the Canadiens took to the ice in these red, white and blue striped outfits. Just be glad these doozies didn't stay around too long.
We all know they are very serious about their hockey in Canada, the uniform part not so much.
No. 24: Seattle Seahawks, 2009-present
The only thing worse than the Seattle Seahawks football team is their uniforms.
In recent years the Seahawks have begun sporting the lime green tops to go along with dark blue bottoms and light blue helmets. Quite an eye burning combination.
No. 23: Montreal Expos, 1982
For No. 23 we return to Montreal. The Expos sported these uniforms in the 1982 season.
The red and blue stripe really makes it a winner. It goes perfect over top the light blue. Nothing beats the old Expos hats from 25 years ago. Are those things even fitted?
No. 22: Oakland A's, 1974
The Oakland A's have accomplished a lot on the baseball field, looking good has never been one of them.
Here is Reggie Jackson in 1974 showing off the green and yellow. Those colors are clearly not meant to go together.
No. 21: Vancouver Grizzlies, 1995-2000
The Vancouver Grizzlies didn't produce much during the latter part of the 90s except ugly jerseys.
Here Bryant 'Big Country' Reeves shows off the aqua colored uniforms. The pattern around the arms and neck is something to look at. And what is that on his left leg?
No. 20: Philadelphia 76ers, 1991-1994
Sir Charles is rising up for a jumper for the Sixers in the early 90s. I wonder if he is thinking about how ridiculous he looks.
These uniforms look more like something the world renowned Harlem Globetrotters would be wearing.
No. 19: Syracuse Orange, 2006
The players on the Syracuse Orange football team have to be wondering how they got the raw end of the deal on uniforms considering how impressive the uniforms are the basketball teams wears.
These three lineman look a little like pumpkins. Sorry that was a little harsh.
No. 18: New Jersey Nets, 1990-1991
Well aren't these something. Did they fade in the washer or are they supposed to look like that?
Gotta mention the shorts as well. The light blue stripe tops it off and did they still wear shorts this short in the 90s?
No. 17: Chicago White Sox 1982-1986
Here is the first White Sox jersey to make the list. Chicago's finest sported these doozies in the mid 1980s. 'Sox' simply says it all.
At least the Cubs have them beat at something. More to come from the White Sox a little later.
No. 16: Denver Broncos, 1960-1961
The Charger uniforms are none to appealing, but it is the Broncos who make this list simply because of the kick ass helmets.
No team in the history of the NFL has had helmets quite like that. The uniforms were not too appealing, either.
No. 15: Pittsburgh Pirates, 1999
For one night only in the summer of 1999, the Pittsburgh Pirates donned theses intimidating uniforms. It was turn ahead the clock night in the Steel City and the Pirates gave fans a glimpse of the future.
The huge Pirate head on the front is enough to scare anybody. Talk about intimidation. Too bad Pittsburgh is in the midst of 17 straight losing seasons.
No. 14: Seattle Mariners, 1999
The Pittsburgh Pirates weren't the only team turning ahead the clock on this night. The Seattle Mariners also took part.
The sleeve-less uniforms really show off Junior's muscles. The only thing bigger than the number is the huge logo on the front.
No. 13: Philadelphia Eagles, 1932
In 2007 the Philadelphia Eagles celebrated their 75 year anniversary by busting out their uniforms from their inaugural season.
It may have been a better idea to keep these things hidden in the past. The light blue and yellow helmet caps it off.
No. 12: Colorado Rockies, 1999
Our next stop returns to turn ahead the clock night in 1999 for a stop in the Mile High City.
The Rockies topped everybody on this night. Here Larry Walker shows off not only the sweet stache, but also the awesome jersey. Could that ball be any bigger?
No. 11: Atlanta Hawks, 1970-1972
Not even the great Pistol Pete Maravich could look good in these things. The lime green look is clearly the best.
The stripe seems to be working its way up the shirt and around his neck.
No. 10: Washington Bullets, Mid 1970's
These colorful beauties belonged to the Washington Bullets in the mid 1970's. Certainly makes me proud to be an American.
The colors perfectly symbolize our nation's capital. The stars on the shorts are my favorite part.
No. 9: Toronto Raptors, 1996-1999
If the intimidation of Marcus Camby wasn't enough, the Toronto Raptor had these uniforms to scare off opponents in the late 90's.
The huge dinosaur on the front eats up the whole shirt and appears ready to take a bite out of Camby's No. 21.
No. 8: Chicago White Sox, 1976
An absolute classic. These jerseys make every top ten list. The super tight pants and the knee high socks are one thing, but the collar is something way out of the ordinary.
It kind of looks like a game of cricket has broken out.
No. 7: New York Knicks, 1980-1983
The Knicks had the privilege of wearing these uniforms for only four years, but they will go down as the worst in New York sports history.
One thing is certain, it was much harder to forget players numbers with uniforms like this.
No. 6: San Diego Padres, 1983
Now we are really getting to the good stuff. These brown and yellow jerseys are one of the worst color combinations known to man.
The Padres had the honor of wearing these in 1983 and the yellow socks and fresh white shoes are the highlight of the outfit.
No. 5: Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 1976-1996
The Buccaneers crack the top five of the list for these bright orange uniforms with the mean looking helmet.
It is hard to imagine a team sticking with this uniform for 20 years, but when you are as bad as the Bucs were, who really cares?
No. 4: Vancouver Canucks, 1978-1984
The Vancouver Canucks hold the distinction of having the worst uniforms in the history of the NHL.
These winners have V's all over them. Can you find where they are hiding?
No. 3: Pittsburgh Pirates 1976-1986
The Pittsburgh Pirates wore these for over a decade and while the color is bad enough, the striped hat takes the cake. That P looks a little out of place.
The big wad of chew and the knee high socks make this uniform all the more convincing.
No. 2: Denver Nuggets, 1982-1993
The NBA's worst jersey of all time goes to the Denver Nuggets. What looks to be an attempt at a rainbow fails miserably. The mountains in the forefront don't do anything to make up for it.
I would have to give this one the Dikembe Mutombo finger wave.
No. 1: Houston Astros, 1975-1993
Well I am just going to go ahead and say it. "Houston, we have a problem." The Astros sported these uniforms for nearly two decades before realizing they were the ugliest in sports history.
The multiple colors on the front of the jersey say everything that needs to be said. I personally like the number on the right leg.
That orange helmet looks a little out of place and is Astros centered on his chest. It looks like it is running a little close to his left arm.
