15. Toronto Blue Jays
Beyond being insanely hot, the Toronto Blue Jays also have struck gold with their uniforms.
After years of toying with awkward uniforms and logos—which featured too much red, and for a short while black—the Blue Jays went back to an old faithful: the same basic uniforms they wore en route to consecutive World Series titles in 1992 and 1993.
The 2015 models are of course updated to look more modern. On Sunday at home they also went back to an old faithful, the white brimmed front of the cap–something the current hats do not feature.
But they’re the same basic concept with the same font for the numbers and letters. As far as my memory can take me, though, those Jays did not have an alternate uniform.
These Jays have a straight blue alternate, naturally favored by David Price—who almost always wore the alternate in Tampa—among others. As with so many other franchises, the Jays have become a bit too reliant on the extra uniform, even though it really isn’t any different than the white or gray top.
The reason Toronto doesn’t get docked major points is the recognition that ultimately it is the same jersey, just in a different color. Unlike some teams’ alternates, it is not a completely different jersey. Oh, and it actually does look really good too.
