This is quite possibly the ugliest St. Louis sports jersey we have ever seen
It’s rare that you can point to something and be confident labeling it as “the ugliest” of all-time. This past month, our fan hunters may have located the ugliest St. Louis sports jersey of all-time.
Sure, the label is inherently cliché, but our fan hunters have tremendous perspective. They’re like jersey anthropologists. They’re doing it for fun and intellect. And they sure as hell don’t throw around titles and mandates carelessly.
Now, let’s get into this. This jersey has been labeled historically repugnant because it satisfies what we’re identifying as “The Triple Crown of Ugliness.”
1.) Quite simply, any St. Louis Blues jersey from ’95-’98 should be burned and its ashes should be tossed in the Mississippi River. They were atrocious and only made sense if Ronald McDonald bought the franchise. Even then, they would rank in the Top Five of the NHL’s ugliest jerseys of all-time.
2.) As if the aforementioned wasn’t bad enough, this gentleman decided to order off-menu and get a blacked out version.
3.) The “GRISWOLD #00” jersey worn by Clark W. Griswold in “Christmas Vacation” is quite possibly the greatest piece of movie sports memorabilia ever. But it’s a Chicago Blackhawks jersey. Leave it up to a Blues fan to find every possible reason to be jealous of a Blackhawks fan.
So, like we said.
The ugliest. Ever.
