Uni Watch Names A's Uniform Set the 8th Best in Pro Sports


Paul Lukas of Uni Watch, the ESPN-sponsored blog about all things related to sports uniforms, has spent this week presenting a "power ranking" of the 122 major-sport professional teams in the US and Canada. It's a pretty solid effort, with the Sacramento Kings finished last at 122nd, at the Montreal Canadiens finishing 1st.

The Oakland A's did very well in the rankings, coming in 8th, just ahead of the New York Yankees (#9) and in first place among all AL teams. Among all MLB teams, only the Cubs (#4) and the Cards (#3) finished ahead of them.

Here's what Uni Watch had to say about the A's togs:

When A's owner Charles Finley dressed the team in green and gold back in 1963, it was viewed as outlandish, even scandalous. Half a century later, Oakland's look has matured into a modern classic. Think of the A's as that outrageous-looking guy from high school who ends up looking surprisingly mature and sophisticated at the reunion (even if he does happen to be wearing white shoes).

Well said, I think.

To start at the bottom of the rankings, go here. And if you just can't get enough of this sort of thing, there'll be a chat with Paul Lukas, who did these rankings, at 12 pm PDT right here.
