The “SOX” days ended in 1987, as the team embraced a more classical look in the waning days of the original Comiskey Park.

Button downs were back as the home whites featured a navy blue with red trim “White Sox” cursive script. The player number on the pant, now in navy, stayed until the 1989 season when it was dropped. The back of the jersey featured a navy with red outline number with no surname.

On the road grays, a similar navy with red trim, cursive look was across the front. “Chicago” returned after it’s brief hiatus. Much like the home uni’s, the pant number was ditched in 1989. The road uni’s also had the same no name on back look like the home tops.

The cursive “C” hat in navy with the red bill was their main lid during this period.
