Minnesota Twins: Ranking the Twins’ best uniforms of all-time

While the Twins jerseys of my childhood were something to behold, the original Twins uniforms may have been even better. With a blue cursive Twins script on the front, these uniforms helped usher Major League Baseball to Minnesota and with names such as Harmon Killebrew, Tony Oliva and Jim Kaat, the Twins saw their first taste of success in them as well, winning the 1965 AL pennant.
The cream-colored uniforms give these an old school feel that still looks cool today and when the Twins moved to Target Field in 2010, the uniforms became part of their normal rotation until being retired prior to last season.
One of the best things about these jerseys is the lack of a name on the back and although that may mean less money in the pro shop (considering Twins fans wouldn’t have to buy a new one when their favorite player got too expensive), they actually match the limestone surrounding the ballpark better than the Kasota Gold that has been forced upon Twins fans.
If there’s one jersey that should make a comeback in the next few years, it’s this one, but with a trend towards newer, flashier jerseys, Twins fans will probably be left holding their breath.
