A Very Very Rare Jersey from the Chicago White Sox when they wore the old style 1900s big collar jersies with the short pants. Sorry no pants just this rare jersey used by Walt “No Neck” Williams in 1977and tagged as such with Set 1. Bought at one of the preseason White Sox events many years ago. Comes with the Williams card from 1970. Lifetime Gtd as Authentic. 25 Chicago White Sox. The 1976 Chicago White Sox uniforms are widely regarded as some of the worst in the history of any sport, but I had to add it to this lit for historical purposes and to tell this story. While compiling this list Ive noticed that baseball fans opinions of the best and worst uniforms of all-time vary depending on where they live and what era they grew up in, but I think everyone who has ever watched a baseball game can agree that the 1976 White Sox uniforms are the worst ever. Run DMC told us not bad meaning bad, but bad meaning good and that applies to every other uniform on this list. On March 3, 1976 White Sox owner Bill Veeck held a press conference at Millers pub to announce the teams new secret uniforms they would be introducing on opening day. Veeck told reporters, We are adding elegance to baseball styles, and we may not be the greatest team in baseball, at least not for a few years, but well immediately be the most stylish in the game. He went on to proclaim Comisky Park will replace Paris and New York as the fashion center of the world. The new uniforms were unveiled and definitely made a statement. The jerseys were a throwback to the old days of baseball, but Veeck also threw in one curve ball: shorts. Instead of the traditional baseball pants, the 1976 White Sox would introduce baseball shorts and knee-high socks as part of their uniforms that summer. This definitely wasnt the last of Bill Veecks amazing promotional campaigns, as anyone who recalls Disco Demolition Night in 1979 can verify. Although the White Sox quickly dropped the shorts out of their rotation, the uniforms remained largely the same until new team owners held a fan competition to re-design the uniforms in 1981.
