2. 1987-09 Home & Road

I’m putting these two uniforms together because they represent two of the most successful eras in Twins history. For starters, these uniforms debuted right before the 1987 season where the Twins won their first World Series and then turned around and won their second in 1991.

Although these were worn throughout the rest of the lean seasons for the rest of the 90s, they made a return to prominence thanks to Torii Hunter, Justin Morneau and Joe Mauer among others as the Twins captured six American League Central division titles between 2002 and 2010.

I could be biased since these jerseys were a large part of my childhood, but when I think of the Twins, I think of the red script on the front with the pinstripes. Heck, even the lettering on top of the scoreboard mimics the one seen on these jerseys, which cement the iconic place they have in the history of the franchise.

They may be simple, but these jerseys are the ones that represent some of the most iconic teams and names in franchise history.
