The Mets Police have probably been critics of the black Mets uniforms since their debut in 1998. (Predating blogging I might add) I have been against them since 2000, once I got over the novelty of it. The combination of the ugly new “throwback” home jerseys and MP’s Blue Cap Army got me thinking… what Mets uniforms are my favorite? I will give you one home, one away, and one alternate style. All three to be worm with the classic blue Mets cap of course.
Home Jersey: I love the racing stripes, pinstripes, and sheer blue and orange overkill of the 1986 style jersey. The one authentic jersey I own is a David Wright 1986 style throwback the team wore in 2006. Definitely my favorite Mets jersey.
Away Jersey: I love the plain gray away jersey the team wore in the 60’s, 70’s, and a few years in the 90’s. Basically keep the away jersey we have now, but eliminate the black shadows and wear blue hats and socks with it.
Alternate Home and/or Road: I go back to the 80’s/early 90’s for this one. The team used to wear a blue jersey with either white, gray, or orange lettering as a BP/alternate. Let’s bring that back. Nice and loud, it screams classic Mets.
