Jerseys are an underrated part of sports. Heck, some people even use jerseys to help them pick their March Madness brackets. Beyond that, uniforms can help give a team an identity other than what their play establishes. There are some that are just average and there are some that are just downright ugly. Then there are some that are absolutely awesome. Here are 10 that fall under that category among the major sports in North America.
The Chargers mainly make this list for their alternate baby blue uniforms that they pull out from time to time. Those are very sharp, and even their home uniforms look pretty good. There's something about that lightning bolt and the other blues surrounding it that are very aesthetically pleasing.
C'mon, the Blue Jays' throwback jerseys and current jerseys are pretty sweet. The baby blue jerseys with the Blue Jay on them are some of the coolest in all of sports. As they move back into contention in MLB, their jerseys will likely only continue to seem cooler.
The mystique that surrounds the Lakers as a franchise is a lot of what makes their jerseys so cool. Not many other teams (other than maybe the Minnesota Vikings) have main colors of purple and yellow, and it works in L.A. However, the team is going to have to improve in order for the team and their jerseys to retain their mystique.
The blue pinstripes the North Siders wear are classic and when playing baseball in the heat of summer, the bright blue and red on the jerseys are stunning. While the play of the team may not quite rank up with their jerseys, the uniforms worn by the "Lovable Losers" are still pretty awesome.
There's a lot going on in the Cardinals uniforms, and that's part of what makes them so cool. They have their Cardinal sitting upon a baseball bat that extends across the entire uniform, which is pretty cool. Their alternate hats that have just a Cardinal on them as opposed to the "STL" logo are pretty cool as well. Combined with the colorful history of the team, the Cards have one of the coolest uniforms in all of sports.
The vibrant green on the Celtics' uniforms are classic. Since they are one of the most historic franchises in the NBA, the uniforms are also iconic. With the high Irish population in the greater Boston area, it also pays homage to the city in a way and that's pretty cool.
An Original Six team in the NHL, the Canadiens have been around for a while and so have their jerseys. While they've gotten a bit more eccentric recently, they are still just as cool. The bright red and blue look awesome, especially on a hockey uniform.
Another Original Six team, the Bruins have some pretty intimidating uniforms. Their bruiser style matches their dark black and yellow color scheme. It doesn't hurt that the team has won a Stanley Cup recently and competed for a few others to add to the overall appeal of their jerseys.
They are far from the flashiest jerseys in sports, but the Yankees' uniforms may be the most iconic in all of sports. They've had several separate dynasties throughout their history and have gotten pretty popular along the way. Part of the appeal is in the fact that the navy blue pinstripe jerseys haven't changed much at all since their first season using the jerseys.
The Indian Head is one of the most iconic images in sports. The Blackhawks are an Original Six team, so there's history there, and the team's logo itself is just plain amazing. The logo consists of seven colors, which is more than what any team can say of their logos. Even with all that color, the jerseys look very sharp and worn by a budding dynasty, so that's what makes them the best jerseys in North American sports.
