#4: Inaugural Road Uniform (1977)

The first-ever road uniform worn by the Blue Jays. It came in an era of baby blue away jerseys, an era that I am totally here for. All accompanying colours bounce incredibly well off of the light blue base. The presence of white and royal blue scatter both the jersey and pants. The logo on the jersey, however, offers a hint of red which acts as an effective contrast.

The white panel hat that accompanied this ensemble was no slouch either. I still consider the Blue Jays’ white panel hats to be the best they have to offer, and it was no exception in 1977. The inaugural logo was a piece of art as well, and it was spotted dead centre of the jersey.

I’m a big fan of home jerseys sporting the team name, and the away jerseys sporting the city name. The Blue Jays hit this right on the head, with ‘Toronto’ written across the middle in a unique font. It’s hard to find flaws with this uniform, and the team made a splash with their first-ever away uniform offering.
