The Chicago White Sox used some awesome jerseys as their Sunday home jerseys in 2012. They can be described as the red pinstripe jerseys. The original form of these was worn by the White Sox from 1971-1975. They only wore them as Sunday home jerseys in 2012 which is a shame because they are very cool. The "winning ugly" jerseys replaced them on Sundays at home which is an okay replacement but it would be much better if they wore both.  These jerseys are very unique because as far as pinstripes, the White Sox have mostly ever used black pinstripes on white jerseys. It has become a pretty unique color scheme to them as far as baseball teams but a flash of red is really cool every now and then. A lot of fans embraced this jersey in 2012 because of how cool it was.  If the White Sox ever busted these out again, fans would surely be happy to enjoy them and possibly even purchase them. The hat even had a uniqueness to it as the "SOX" on it was shaped a bit differently than it is on their normal black hats. This is totally a jersey that the White Sox need to bring back.

Uniform Two

There is something special about baseball jerseys from the early days of the game. Even though they are fit a bit more when they are worn now, the nostalgia behind them is really cool for people who weren’t around during those times. For the Chicago White Sox, there are so many jerseys like that because this team is so old.

The jerseys that the White Sox wore in 1929 were so cool. The ones they wore on the road were cool as they were grey with “Chicago” written across in navy blue but the home jerseys are the ones they should bring back sometime. The jersey can be seen in the picture above has the “O” and the “X” placed in between the loops of the “S” both on the chest and on the hat. It is a really good look for a baseball uniform and definitely one they should bring back.

The White Sox were trying to remove themselves from the “Black Sox” scandal that happened ten years prior at that point, but wearing them now would have nothing to do with that. In fact, seeing the modern-day White Sox players dawning jerseys this old would be really fun to see. Hopefully, we can see something like this or at least one that is similarly old.
