Acid Flashback Friday: the 1989-1996 Home Uniforms
With the official demise of Flashback Fridays, it looks like Acid Flashback Friday remains as the only look back to Blue Jays yesteryear.
This week, we honour the classic home uniforms from the 1989-1996 seasons.
Surprisingly, the club donned these for the Flashback Friday on August 8th during the Back2Back Weekend, and I have to say they looked very sharp.
It was a very nice change from the very loud powder blue jerseys. Nothing against those uniforms, but the home white uniforms are much more traditional and don’t look like a novelty uniform like the powder blues.
There’s something about this uniform in particular that conjures up so many good memories of this ball club. Maybe it’s because the Blue Jays won four division titles, two American League Pennants, and two World Series during the tenure of this particular uniform.
Maybe it’s because there so many iconic images of Blue Jays players wearing the classic white home uniforms that we mostly associate this jersey with good times from the past.
Since the Blue Jays will no longer we sporting the powder blues on Friday home games, why not have them wear the home white uniforms instead? They would look great as an alternate jersey the Blue Jays could bust out every once in a while.
