  • Top 10 throwback uniforms

    The Buffalo Bills busted out 1960s-era uniforms in a 22-7 Week 1 win over the Houston Texans. Let's see where those threads rank among the top throwbacks in sports ...


    10. Houston Astros — This, of course, is the age of irony, so it's perfectly appropriate to pay homage to a few "so bad they're good" uniforms from days of yore. The rainbow uniforms of the 1980's Houston Astros are hard to beat.


    9. Vancouver Canucks — Twenty odd years ago the Canucks laid to rest a style of uniform that can best be described as "candy corn dipped in poop." On nights they didn't inflict those upon unsuspecting fans, they wore all yellow. Want to save the NHL? Bring these loveable atrocities back howling from the vaults.

    8. San Diego Chargers — The powder blues ... God bless 'em. When your star player's nickname is "Bambi," it's somehow fitting that your uniforms make you look like smurfs.

    7. Pittsburgh Pirates — Did the all-yellow outfits with the cylindrical lids make the 70s Pirates look more like bumble bees or tacos? That's for the historians to decide, but every young man should have one of those caps.

    6. Tampa Bay Buccaneers — Why in the world did the Bucs abandon those unspeakably cool "orange sherbet" unis? Sure, maybe they resembled Tara Reid's vomit after a long night of Jagr bombs, but let's not hold that against them.
    5. Chicago White Sox — Former Sox owner Bill Veeck was an innovator in many ways, but never was he more inspired than when he forced his charges to wear short pants and collared shirts. Another selection from the "so bad it's good" department.

    4. Buffalo Bills — What a joy to see the Jack Kemp-era threads once again. Even better, no Jack Kemp in sight. Do the right thing and keep them around.

    3. Atlanta Hawks — Basketball uniforms of the 70s, with their trademark, "scrotum-nustling" shorts, are bad enough. Make them lime green, and they're even worse. And by "even worse" we mean "awesome."

    2. Baltimore Orioles — Which bird would you rather have on your cap? The smiling one that looks like he's four beers into the evening, or the one that resembles a tepid pen-and-ink from a James Audubon field manual? We miss that darn smiling bird.

    1. New England Patriots — That Patrick Henry guy (or whoever he was) on the helmet loved America, played center and was pissed about something tyrannical just across the line of scrimmage. The Pats dumped these classics for the fashion-forward tripe they now wear? That's just criminal.[/b][/quote]

                  no way the pats throwback was the best ever. i like the old Pirates, Astros, A's, White Sox (80's edition), and Orioles.

                  football jerseys for the most part are pretty boring. just different colors with numbers on them. baseball jerseys are nice, though, the way the team name or city is stitched on, and the style of the jersey.

                    I like the Pirates gold jersey.

                    When I was in little league, I was on a team called the Pirates and we wore the gold tops with white pants.

                            I actually miss the old Gretzky-era Kings jerseys. Those contrasted well against the ice and made the players look like they were all going 10mph faster than everyone else on the ice.

                            And how can they forget the Whalers?
                            Gorgeous colours there, puke green with teal.
                            "Whaddya mean I hurt your feelings?"
                            "I didn't know you
                            had any feelings"
