Chicago White Sox Uniform History 1976-1998
Click to view: 1901-1975   1999-present


The Sox introduce a look based on their 1902-16 navy road style but with 1970's floppy disco collars. And, on occasion, shorts (with pockets to hold bandages for players' knees after sliding). NOB return. Mesh batting practice jerseys are identical to the game jerseys - and eventually are used regularly for hot afternoons. These jerseys were were highly reused over several seasons.

Another modern look, this one pulled from a fan contest.

The Sox drop the pullovers and adopt a conservative design based on the (one-year style) 1942 home jersey.


The White Sox stage the first "Turn Back The Clock" game July 11, 1990, so we'll show that jersey here (I don't think I could keep up with all the TBTC jerseys now.....my intention with this site is to show the main jerseys...) Based on their 1917 home jersey, what makes it special is it's WOOL, not poly knit, and they played 13 innings! (The cap, however, is nylon.)


For the final few games at old Comiskey Park in 1990, the White Sox break out another new look along with a black alternate. It's inspired by the 1949-63 look but using silver as accent in place of red.

Comiskey Park Inaugural Year patch worn on home and black alternate jerseys right sleeve. Road jerseys also sport a sock patch on the left.



From 1992-98, the White Sox use both Russell and Wilson jerseys, letting players choose. I don't have them all here, so if you have one that I don't show, please send pics!

Sleeve cuffs added to black alternate.

Comiskey Park sleeve patch added on home jersey. Alternate jersey lettering gets an outline and the sock sleeve patch is added.
