The Worst Uniforms in Pro Sports Ever
There have been many new throwback and new wave jerseys over the last several years. Some have made us say "wow" and others have made us wanna puke.
Many have made us wonder why the organization chose this awful disgrace of a uniform.
As I began digging into some of the pro sports team's vaults I discovered that most of them had a team uniform that was as hideous as a school lunch. This got me wondering what the worst of the worst was.
So I give you, in no particular order, the worst uniforms in pro sports history...
1980s Houston Astros
All I can say about the first uni is rainbow guts. Yes, that is what the style was called during the Astros run of these horrific orange and yellow striped pukers during the late '70s and '80s.
In my opinion I have seen $10 little league jerseys that look better than this. This is one case where basic beats what the organization may have thought was a fashion statement at the time.
Mid '90s Milwaukee Bucks Alternate Jersey
Our next entry comes to us from Milwaukee, Algonquin for the good land. They had an alternate jersey during the mid '90s that made every deer hunter in Wisconsin get aroused.
This brain fart was basically to try and add another product to their clothing line, and what better way than to put a huge deer on the front of their uniforms. A white and purple deer at that. Another case where basic is better.
Old School Tampa Bay Bucs
The old creamsicle Bucs jersey always makes an ugly uniform list. They wore this abomination from their inaugural season of '76 until the mid 90s when they went pewter.
These were basic, and they weren't overly bad. The problem is creamsicle, I mean, really? I don't believe creamsicle or puke orange has ever been a fashion statement, even during the '70s when everyone was stoned and disco-ing it up.
Old School Washington Bullets
Jackie Moon and his Flint Tropics would love this one. Nothing beats short shorts and crappy striped unis. These were wore during the mid '70s as the Bullets showed they were truly patriotic.
Some variations of their shorts actually looked like the shorts Rocky Balboa wore to fight Ivan Drago in Rocky IV. Any way you look at them, they were not a fashion statement for any era.
This Phoenix Coyotes Jersey
All I can say is what the hell is this? It looks like the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl puked on a cactus green Coyotes jersey.
This was one the Coyotes introduced back in 1998. I think somewhere in Winnipeg people are gagging at the thought of what Phoenix did to their beloved Jets.
Anyway you look at it this one is easily one of the ugliest and most ridiculous on the list.
Early '90s Denver Nuggets Jersey
Nothing says ugly jersey like the rainbow style imprint. This fashion flop was worn from '96-'93, and as you can see it is all sorts of colors. It kinda looked like a five year old designed it.
In my opinion rainbows do not work anywhere, unless you are at a gay function. It certainly doesn't make opponents in the NBA fear you. I can see opponents in the locker room now:
"Who we got next?"
"The rainbows from Denver"
"OK, what a bunch of -------"
Philadelphia Eagles Throwback
The city of Brotherly Love could not be proud of this ensemble. This was, I believe a throwback that the Eagles re-introduced back in 2007. The jersey pretty much speaks for itself.
Big Bird yellow and powder blue are not a great combo, unless you are the Chargers. I am all about breaking out the throwbacks once in a while, but some are meant to be kept in the 1930s.
1970s Padres jersey
While this jersey that the Padres wore may not be as bad as those stupid camo ones the Padres have worn in the past, all I can say is look at the turd brown and piss yellow.
I don't know who would have wanted to buy one of these disasters. I mean, seriously, it is a poop and pee combo. I don't think that Paris Hilton could make this one fashionable.
1970s California Golden Seals jersey
Do you remember the California Golden Seals? Well, if you do you also remember their multiple crappy uniforms.
It was often said that they won as many games during their brief existence as they had uniform changes. The final change was by far the worst of them all.
I think this was some sort of teel color, but could be wrong. I mean honestly who would wear this outside of the stadium. I have seen a few of these on eBay, and they go for hundreds of dollars.
Maybe old school teal hockey jerseys are big bucks?
Puke Green Seattle Seahawks Jersey
I am pretty sure that this one takes the cake for 21st century crap. I remember seeing this unveiling this past NFL season while I was about two sheets to the wind at the sports bar.
I kinda think it is puke green, but neon is probably the better term. Last time I checked, neon colors went out in the early '90s.
I guess it was funny when they unveiled it on April Fool's day 2009, but not as funny when they actually wore these against the Bears. This should be one jersey that never appears on an NFL field ever again.
Wrapping up the Ugly
All you can say about this list is U-G-L-Y!
I understand that many of the unis on here were from another time, I still question if they were ever in style.
Note to teams, neon colors, rainbows, and turd brown normally doesn't constitute a great jersey.
So what do you think? Any I left out? Any you may have in a closet or garage somewhere?
