The Blue Jays debuted their throwback uniforms last night, as they plan to do for every Friday home game this season. Behold:

They look a bit silly, but isn’t that just part of the fun? The Royals have also brought their powder blues back (though only from the waist up). Last year, the Padres busted out their old all-yellow duds. What other teams could bring back some kickass vintage duds? Let’s look at the contenders:

Baltimore’s all-orange uniforms included bold black and white striping on the sleeves and a cheerful, cartoon bird on the cap:

Pittsburgh’s all-yellow ensembles included jaunty striped caps and an overall “bumble bee” look:

Houston’s famous sunset uniforms included uniform numbers on the pant legs (not pictured here) and a giant black death star on the front (pictured):

The brown-and-red Indians unis of yore look almost tame in this lineup:

The White Sox have a few different throwback options to play around with. Option A’s loud stripes:

And Option B’s knee-length knickers:
