Eventually, every old sports uniform becomes new again. For proof, look how the Toronto Raptors brought back their retro 90s uniform for their upcoming season. Social media exploded with overwhelming positive feedback.
The Blue Jays have a few beloved kits in their 40-plus year club history, but only a few are worthy of being revived from the archives. There are others which should never see the light of day again (the muscle Jay and angry Jay uniforms, please).
Outside the original retro home white/road grey/alternate blue uniforms, it seems like enough time has passed … it’s time for the Blue Jays to revive the powder blue uniforms.
Maybe you’re like me, but I haven’t always had an affinity for this uniform set. There was a time when I thought the powder blues were an eyesore, but I’ve come to realize these uniforms and that era of Blue Jays baseball holds a special place in franchise history.
My fondest memories of these particular uniforms came from watching Roy Halladay carve up competition during those “Flashback Friday” games in 2008 and 2009. Back then, the Jays wore those uniforms so often that it never felt like a special occasion.
