Ranking the Top 10 Chicago Cubs' Uniforms of All-Time

Uniforms are one of the most polarizing aspects of a sports franchise. Love them or hate them, they aren't going anywhere. For the Chicago Cubs, there is a 147-year history behind these threads.

7. 1982-89 Road

To say the least, the 80s were a rocky decade for the Cubs. Chicago was anywhere from well below .500 to the N.L. East Champions. These unis featured a solid blue top with white pants. There was a thin red line around the bottom of the jerseys. When I think of Cy Young Award winner Rick Sutcliffe, I think of him wearing this particular uniform.

Believe it or not, 1982 was the first year in the franchise's history that the road uniforms were a darker shade of blue. Previously, the Cubs opted for the baby blue tops or gray. Overall, the new look provided a change of pace for the Cubs and laid a foundation for more blue-centric uniforms moving forward.
