Now, if you actually remember this, and know what it’s about, then serious props to you
(And I’m pretty sure my dad has the vinyl somewhere for it :P)
So maybe it was for years prior, but it brings up Memories of the flory days, and the one that probably everyone remembers is the home run Joe Carter hit to win the world series, and the Toronto Blue Jays having such an amazing team, winning back to back World Series in 92 and 93 (I just realized that it happened 18 years ago! crazy)
Why am I bringing this up? well back in September I believe I had heard the Jays were going to get new uniforms for the 2012 season and with the red maple leaf more Prominent and I’m thinking in my mind they were going to be white with a big red leaf right on the front. In my mind I had thought they would be terrible. a friend of mine and myself, always commented how we loved the flashback fridays where the baby blue’s would make a comeback for at least one night a week. We had also thought it would be cool if they’d bring back the jerseys from the gold ole days, with Joe Carter, John Olerud (can’t remember exactly how to spell his last name off the top of my head) Tony Fernandez, Kelly Gruber and Dave Stieb.
I’m on the mailing list for the jays and when I see the email about the jerseys for next season, I wasn’t sure what to think, but I knew that I had to look. I was honestly amazed, and thinking, heck Yes! So I am all in favour of bring back these jerseys, I’m not a huge fans of the ones they had, as I was reading I think on national post or some other site saying the other logo looked kinda like an angry Jay, but thank you that it’s gone. Their a modern take on the classic look , and I like them.
The only suggestion that would make these jersey’s a lot better? Take away the fill style of Toronto and have it the same style as the other words. oh! and here’s the link to the National Post article I mentioned if you want to read it/and or haven’t seen the greatness yet.
Edit – It’s Olerud
