MLB jersey rankings

 

My MLB jersey power rankings:

1. St. Louis Cardinals

Cincinnati Reds vs St. Louis Cardinals 130707211205-yadier-molina-single-image-cut

Best logo, and maybe the best color scheme in baseball. True classic jerseys.

2. Detroit Tigers

Their logo is as original as you’ll find. Their home whites are simple, but great. The away jersey may be the best in the MLB.

3. Atlanta Braves

I love their logo and colors. Their alternate white jerseys are one of the best alternates in the game, not to mention their reds ones as well.

4. Pittsburgh Pirates

Great colors, classic jerseys. That’s all that needs to be said about the Pirates’ uniforms. Their alternate black jerseys might be my favorite in baseball.

5. Oakland A’s

I’ve always liked the green and yellow/gold. Especially on their home jerseys. Great hats as well.

6. New York Yankees

Derek+Jeter+Mariano+Rivera+Enn-V_PFyZem yankees

They probably have the most recognizable logo in sports, and rightfully so. It’s a great logo. I really like their home, pinstriped jerseys, as they are as classic as you can get, but the away jerseys don’t do much for me.

7. Chicago Cubs

b25bb2a41f715d12330f6a7067001a71 71633065

The home whites with the pinstripes are great. It’s the away jerseys that I’m not a huge fan of. Their alternate blues somewhat help make up for the grey jerseys.

8. Baltimore Orioles

460x 0de8eb844db24d09adac55126307b174-4fc1627d463744aa9d09ba7036e90493-9ddcebf128c3521b3a0f6a706700dd61

Good colors and pretty original jerseys. I’m a fan of their throwback hats.

9. Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

mlb_g_trout1_sy_400 asa130528128_angels_at_dodgers

They use a good font on their jerseys, and I like how the “A” in Angels features the halo.

10. San Francisco Giants

Pablo Sandoval tumblr_m8ga49OaiF1qh7tk8o1_500

These jerseys have never changed, and that says a lot. True originals.

11. Boston Red Sox

David+Ortiz+Jacoby+Ellsbury+Baltimore+Orioles+Ah8iG78ztcpl Dustin Pedroia

The whites are good, clean, classics. I’m not a huge fan of their away jerseys. I understand that they are throwback jerseys from the 1920’s, which is a cool idea, but they don’t look very good. Still, they’re better than most grey jerseys. They need to ditch their red and navy blue jerseys.

12. Texas Rangers

Adrian+Beltre+Seattle+Mariners+v+Texas+Rangers+W5kxjbS7iEol cos-mlb-02-Ian-Kinsler-mdn

Good colors and solid jerseys. The only problem with Texas is the fact that they have so many jerseys. I can’t keep track sometimes.

13. Cincinnati Reds

Joey+Votto+Chicago+Cubs+v+Cincinnati+Reds+98i_rgh5TW7l joey-votto

Another old, classic logo here. Their home jerseys are much better than their greys and reds.

14. Chicago White Sox

Alejandro+De+Aza+Chicago+White+Sox+Photo+Day+cherIztKtHdl konerko-278x300

There isn’t much to complain about with these. I like the cursive font on their away jerseys. Their black ones are pretty solid as well.

15. Los Angeles Dodgers

Andre+Ethier+Arizona+Diamondbacks+v+Los+Angeles+1ZGTaFtAGujl USATSI_7387728_154224518_lowres

I love their home jerseys. They haven’t changed in a very long time. I really dislike their away ones. That’s why the Dodgers are this low.

16. Toronto Blue Jays

image 628x471 (2)

I thought about ranking the Jays higher, but I couldn’t put them ahead of classic jerseys like the Dodgers, Reds, etc. Their new jerseys, as of 2012, are a big improvement from their previous uniform set.

17. New York Mets

2013 New York Mets Photo Day 628x471

I don’t dislike the royal blue and orange, but I’m not a huge fan of it. I get the fact that it’s a combination of the Brooklyn Dodgers’ and New York Giants’ colors, which is creative, but it doesn’t do a whole lot for me.

18. Seattle Mariners

628x471 (1) michaelmorseseattlemarinersvoaklandathletics3_zh4v6myuwx

 

A decent color scheme and font. Good, but not great uniforms.

 

19. Arizona Diamondbacks

Aaron Hill, Gerardo Parra paul-goldschmidt-arizona-diamondbacks-new-bh-fizvjx-496327070

These look too much like they belong in an independent league or something along those lines. It’s tough to read “Arizona” on the front of their away jerseys.

20. San Diego Padres

db_padres_329169_013_r620x349 during the MLB game at Chase Field on September 20, 2012 in Phoenix, Arizona.

Very generic, somewhat boring jerseys.

21. Minnesota Twins

Texas Rangers v Minnesota Twins Minnesota Twins v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

Good home jerseys, but terrible away jerseys.

22. Tampa Bay Rays

USATSI_7308529_149008644_lowres Desmond+Jennings+qwqVukMyDqgm

Again, these are kind of boring. Not much going on here.

23. Kansas City Royals

Billy+Butler+Boston+Red+Sox+v+Kansas+City+6_gFNVZIthgl Ervin_Santana_on_May_7,_2013_(1)

I feel like the Royals could improve these jerseys, but I’m not sure how. I liked their jerseys from 3-4 years ago better than these.

24. Milwaukee Brewers

Miami Marlins v Milwaukee Brewers aramistd

The more I see these jerseys, the more I begin to dislike them. Part of me feels like they’re too bland, but part of me disagrees. These could be higher on my list, but for now they’ll stay right here.

25. Cleveland Indians

Athletics_Indians_Baseball__ctnews@chroniclet.com_1-M Carlos Santana, Lonnie Chisenhall

When they had the navy blue trim on their white jerseys, those were possibly my favorite jerseys in baseball. I loved those. Now without the trimming, I’m not a fan. Their greys just look plain bad.

26. Washington Nationals

harper502jpg-9d37b4ae2ef8ccdb 201306182023734082984-p5

I can’t help but think of Walgreens every time I see their logo. Their away jerseys are very similar to Minnesota’s, which is not a good thing.

27. Colorado Rockies

Josh+Rutledge+St+Louis+Cardinals+v+Colorado+yobzJOIi5jRl troy-tulowitzki

I have to give them credit for their pinstripes. But the rest of their home and away jerseys are bad. They have bad alternates too.

28. Philadelphia Phillies

bilde 1373320911000-howard-1307081802_4_3

I’ve never been a fan of their logo. I also don’t really like red pinstripes. The red and grey on their away uniforms look pretty bad.

29. Miami Marlins

img22711599 gs23

Well, what else would you expect from Miami? Just like their new stadium, the colors chosen for their new jersey color scheme are terrible. Horrible logo(s) as well.

30. Houston Astros

Astros-Uniforms

I don’t like their new jerseys. The font is bad, that shade of orange is bad…….they’re just bad.

Top 10 MLB Jerseys

10. Minnesota Twins

I like the pin stripes on their home jerseys, and the navy blue and red go together very well on both tops.

9. Milwaukee Brewers

The colors are what make these jerseys as good as they are. The font that is used on the front of their jerseys is nothing unique, but it looks good.

8. Baltimore Orioles

A lot of teams have tried to pull off the orange and black look in sports (professional and collegiate), but the O’s own that look.

7. Cincinnati Reds

The thing with the Reds is that their logo has never really changed, and I like it a lot. I also like red and black together even though those are two prominent jersey colors throughout sports.

6. Detroit Tigers

The Tigers’ “D” logo is one of, if not the best, in baseball. It is a true classic logo. Their home jerseys have that old time, classic look to them that I love. The away jerseys aren’t bad either.

5. Chicago Cubs

The Cubs are one of the oldest teams in baseball to wear pin stripes. It is a very original, neat, classic look. Their alternate blue jerseys are great as well. The logo on the alternates is one of the better secondary logos in baseball.

4. Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

I really like the font that they used on their jerseys. The colors are very attention-grabbing. The collars on their jerseys are different than just about every other team in baseball in that they have a trim color.

3. Pittsburgh Pirates

I love yellow and black together. The Pirates have been using those colors ever since day one, and for good reason. Their white home jerseys definitely have a throwback look to them, while their black ones also have a throwback look as well but with a modern logo.

2. St. Louis Cardinals

This is my favorite logo in the MLB. It hasn’t changed since they started using it decades and decades ago. Their color scheme is great as well.

1. New York Yankees

This is possibly the most recognizable logo in sports. Their home whites with the navy blue pin stripes are as classic that a jersey can get. Many players consider it the biggest honor in baseball to put on that jersey.
