The Jays started their existence during the peak V-neck years. It was only natural that they adopt what was en vogue.

The home white jerseys kept a basic look. The front script in an arched navy font said “Blue Jays”. Underneath, centered was the blue jay head on the baseball logo. I’m a huge fan of the navy blue-white-powder blue trim on the collar and sleeve hems.

There were two different road jerseys worn. For the 1977 and 1978 seasons the front script in navy said “Toronto”. By 1979 on, the team went with “Blue Jays” on the front in the same style as the whites. The jay head logo was on both jerseys.

My favorite part of these uniforms was the use of the same front script font and color used on the back player number.

The team hat was a blue hat with a white front featuring the jays head logo. A great look for the squad.
