Wearing the jersey of your favorite team is a time-honored tradition of many sports fans. It doesn’t matter whether you’re loyal to the city blazoned across the front or the star player on the back, wearing a jersey to a game (or even just around town) shows that you’ve clearly committed to following the team through the highs and the lows. The jersey is more than just a piece of clothing — it makes you feel like part of the team.
Unfortunately, not all jerseys are created equal. As you’ll see, sometimes mistakes are made — and not just by boneheaded fans, but even by equipment managers and uniform manufacturers. Please enjoy the following ten examples of terrible jersey fails!
10. Torotno Blue Jays
The Toronto Blue Jays had a tough couple of decades after winning back-to-back World Series in 1992 and 93. They wouldn’t return to the MLB postseason until 2015, actually. So while we might have been able to forgive the equipment staff for phoning it in during some of those less memorable years, this fail comes from the 1994 season. You know, when the Blue Jays were two-time defending World Champs. They may have been a good baseball team, but spelling apparently wasn’t a top requirement for team staff that year. Here’s poor Joe Carter trying to pretend like nothing is wrong.
