In the third instalment of our ongoing series of jersey rankings, we count down the top five jerseys in Toronto Blue Jays history.
1. Alternate blues (2012-present)
A uniform that has a distinct modern flair, along with hints of the Toronto Blue Jays’ illustrious past, the alternate blue uniform is the greatest jersey in team history.
This look is technically categorized as an alternate, but it has functioned as a pseudo-home jersey over recent years, with the team breaking it out anytime the normal Rogers Centre whites get too monotonous.
The jersey features white-blue-white stripes on the sleeve, along with “Blue Jays” written in the team’s unmistakable font. The look is completed with white pants, blue socks and an all-blue cap.
Naturally, with how frequently it’s worn, this jersey has been part of some iconic moments. From Jose Bautista’s bat-flip in 2015 to Edwin Encarnacion’s walk-off Wild Card dinger in 2016, it is a uniform synonymous with the most successful era in recent team history.
As the Blue Jays’ window of contention opens once more, hopefully this uniform will live to see plenty more Octobers.
