Do you like the racing stripes of the 80s? The Mets blues? The black uni’s of the 2000s? The solid whites? The cream pinstripes? Or the classic pinstripes?

My favorite Mets uniforms are the blue alternatives. The blue jersey was first introduced in 2012 with the “Los Mets ” in script on the front of them. The jerseys were worn to celebrate Spanish heritage. Since 2013, the Mets have worn the blue jerseys as an alternative to the pinstripes. I also love the blue alternate away jerseys with the silver lettering and numbers.

I also like the 1980s racing stripe jerseys mostly because we won the World Series wearing it! It was very cool seeing players in 2006 and 2016 wear the throwback jerseys. It was also funny to see how different times were. In the 80s and 90s uniforms were tucked tight to fit the player. Now players have sagging uniforms and their pants leg extends below their cleats.

Although this jersey was not the most popular jersey, I did in fact like them. The black jerseys with the black Mets hat and the black socks looked so crisp. I liked how David Wright and Jose Reyes looked in 2006 especially the NL East clincher at Shea Stadium. Many people wanted the black uniforms long gone. Others that I have spoken to miss them.
