The Giants unveiled this bright new orange option in 2010 to much fanfare. Everyone was excited to have the team famous for black and orange to finally be wearing orange again. The Giants hadn’t worn orange tops since the early 1980’s, back when everything was pullover v-neck style.

This iteration features the retro Giants wordmark across the chest in black with a cream outline, and the same black headspoon style featured on the road jersey. The Giants baseball club patch is replaced by a black interlocking SF logo, and moved to the left sleeve, along with the Lon patch.

On the opposite sleeve rests the World Series Champions logo from 2014. Paired with the traditional home cream-white pants and black belts, the look brightens the darkness of Friday night home games.

I fully support bringing back the orange, if for nothing else other than to have more than just standard home and away uniforms. However, these orange uniforms cannot be any higher on this list due to the off-shade of orange chosen. For whatever reason, the orange tops are a slightly lighter color orange than the orange seen on the cap’s SF logo and used in all other instances by the team. Until this gets fixed to a brighter, more vibrant orange, they will always be slightly off.
