Modernizing a Classic Look: 1990-Present
The Cubs have kept a consistent look throughout the years. For baseball fans, it’s been one of the best home and away sets in the league.
The home white jerseys kept the same look once again, this time reverting back to a button down. At first the back of the jersey only had the player number but it was not long before the player name was added. It looked great in Rookie of the Year.
The road grays went through a few variations. From 1990-1993, the gray button down had “Chicago” in blue with a white outline. The lower player number was in red with the circle “Cubs” logo on the sleeve. The back player number transitioned from blue to red.
The Cubs also added blue alternate uniforms. The red cursive “Cubs” script was the first alternate. It looked a lot like a batting practice jersey. This would be replaced by the walking cub “C” logo top. It’s been pretty popular in the team’s wardrobe.
An alternate road gray was added recently. With a blue spoonhead and “Cubs” in plain blue with white script, it’s a bit boring. So boring in fact that sometimes the players forget which road jersey they are supposed to wear.
Next up will be the Cincinnati Reds
