Hey Blue Jays, love the retro jerseys but...


Seriously, isn't there anyone at the Blue Jays front office who remembers that they wore white unis at home and powder blue on the road?

Isn't there anyone on the Blue Jays staff who follows the Blue Jays?

Don't get me wrong, I am all for the old hats and old uniforms.
I never liked the T hat and the black uniforms (they aren't the Black Jays.)

And retro is in with the Blue Jays... wearing the old hats, having Cito Gaston manage...
Why not bring John Olerud back?

But please get the uniform color right.
Granted it was during a Yankee game so it must have been confusing to figure out which team was the visitor.

But make the effort... PLEASE!
Look up the old tapes! You don't even need expressed written permission from the Toronto Blue Jays.

You ARE the Toronto Blue Jays!
White unis at home for the glory days!

    what u link is a useless photo - when the jays were wearing those home jerseys in 1993, they weren't wearing the baby blues on the road either. think roberto alomar, 92 on the road in oakland HRs off Eckersley, and does his little trot in the road greys. the baby blue were from the days of barfield, moseby, and bell patrolling the outfield, but yes, they were road uniforms. still provide more nostalgia and a chance for a cool 3rd uniform than the home whites from the 80s.

  2. The old Blue Jays uniforms ARE great! They should just go back to wearing them permanently - just drop their dull current uniforms. Really.

    I do agree with you Sully, that the powder-blue retro uni's should only be worn on the road, if only for optical reasons: these blue uniforms don't visually pop out against the blue fence and seats at Rogers Center.
