Default The White Sox in red pinstripes.

I was perusing mlb.com today and checked out their video library.
They have a demo game, the 1975 All-Star game, at Milwaukee.
I checked out the top of the 9th, because Rich Gossage pitched
that inning.

It was great fun to watch a White Sox in action in the red pin-
stripes. Also playing that inning at shortstop was Bucky Dent,
three years away from becoming the most heinous criminal in
in Boston history after Albert DeSalvo. (Or is Dent even more
hated than him?)

The only downside was the outcome. Gossage gave up the
game-winning hit to Bill Madlock, then of the C.....C.....C.....
Cubs.(He didn't get the loss, though.)

As I said, though, fun watching the White Sox in red.

Surely, you jest!

Those were my favorite Sox uniforms of all time! Maybe because I was young then, had little responsibilities (ie., no family, kids, etc.) and could afford to go to a LOT of games, not to mention the fact that I lived in the area and went to school downtown. Ahhhh, those were the days.

Those were the Sox unis when I first started watching them, so I have a little nostalgia for them. I was surprised to learn, much later, that those unis first came out in 1971, which was more or less when I first started watching.

Personally, the White Sox should never have red as the major color in their unis since there is a Red Sox team in the same league. The current black and silver is perfect...but I understand your nostalgia for the jersey.

Those jerseys are the best ever! I have one and always wear it to one of the Sox-Cubs games at Sox Park.

Yes it is. The Sox should never change uniforms ever again.

For hideosity, the red & white pinstripes unis got nothin' on the 1977 "Olde Tyme Chicago" look (not to mention SHORTS).

Also, the first autographs I ever got were guys like Bucky Dent and Rich Gossage in the mid-70s.

I have a photo of me and my brothers all wearing our giveaway Aamco Transmission red & white pinstripe T-shirts from a game in 1975 or so; have to remember to ask my mom to dig that one out...

Ah, memories.

Nothing was ever wrong with a little blue, huh?

I never saw them in person, but the 1977 uniforms look fine to me. If we had to leave the current ones, they'd be my first pick.

The floppy collared pajamas with "clam-digger" pants? Please. The only good thing about those uniforms was that they had white socks.

Stay with the current ones or go back to the '59, black and red on cream, unis. Otherwise, forget any of the bad experiments in between.

I have a complete game from 1970 of the Sox vs Boston at Fenway. Those 1969-1970 White Sox road uni's were the best by far.
