Ranking six best, most iconic Bay Area sports throwback uniforms
6. All orange (almost) everything
The modern-day Giants have rocked these on some "Orange Fridays" and have pulled them off well, but these still come in sixth place.
Orange is a tough color to sport already, so that alone makes it difficult to love these the most. But despite the cursive lettering, this might have a little too much orange.
At least they didn’t go too vintage with the throw-overs and actually had buttons on these.
5. San Jose all day
We’re all about the three-stripe life that blends in perfectly with the vintage San Jose Earthquakes uniforms.
And what a beautiful shade of blue that is.
It loses a few points for feeling a bit too modern, though. It doesn't feel like a complete throwback, like the top four.
4. Shark Week
Given the Sharks were only founded in 1991, these teal colors were definitely before their time. The Sharks pull the teal off better than anyone, and still are one of the only teams to rock the color in all of sports.
Despite a few of their players being born that year (besides 40-year-old Joe Thornton, obviously), there still is plenty of time that needs to pass in order to consider any of this truly old school.
Plus, Jumbo looks better in the white uniforms.
3. The City is back
Now, these are vintage.
I’m old enough to remember (not even one year ago) when the Warriors played at Oracle Arena in Oakland.
But before that, "The City" uniforms were worn by the team when they first played in San Francisco, as a tribute to former owner Franklin Mieuli who simply loved two things: San Francisco and basketball. He loved seeing the logo was still being sported by fans before his death in 2010.
Plus, Steph rocks it.
2. 49ers whites
These are just *chef’s kiss.*
Jimmy Garoppolo could pull any color off, but the all-whites make us think back to Steve Young and Jerry Rice leading the 49ers to their last Super Bowl victory.
What a time.
1. Oakland's finest
These babies have everything you could ever want in a vintage baseball uniform.
The colors, the font, the vest -- all of it.
There also isn’t too much gold which is nice, given some of those colors took more of a "neon" tone back in the day.
Plus, anything Reggie Jackson wore was All-Star approved.
