2. Los Angeles Dodgers (Home)
One of the only uniforms better than the Dodgers on the road is what the Dodgers wear at home. And, much like the club’s road jersey, the script “Dodgers” we see on the field at Dodger Stadium has roots in Brooklyn. In fact, the Dodgers have worn a blue script “Dodgers” on a white jersey every season since 1938 with only the smallest of changes.
More than the consistency of the jersey the team wears, the franchise’s primary logo has stayed the same since the team played at Ebbets Field. The primary logo has only changed along with the script – sometimes thinner, other times thicker, always terrific.
Furthermore, the interlocking LA is a terrific cap logo, and stitched in white on a blue background, it has worked perfectly for the club for more than half a century. The logo itself has also seen very few changes, only growing slightly bolder in the early 1970s, and then again in 2012. Basically, the Dodgers have had the same cap every season since 1958 – and that’s a good thing.
History is important. Think of it this way, the 1955 Brooklyn Dodgers were the first in franchise history to win the World Series. That team wore a script “Dodgers” on its jersey during all seven games of the Fall Classic against the Yankees. The 1959 Dodgers played three World Series games 2,800 miles west at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, doing so in white uniforms with the same logo on their chests, and won the second World Championship in club history.
The four World Series champions to win the title in Dodger blue also wore that uniform, as do the players suiting up in Dodger Stadium today.
