Giants introduce new “old school” Orange Friday jersey

New orange jersey.

The San Francisco Giants for the past several seasons have selected Friday home games to be the day where the team wears their orange alternate jerseys. They just unveiled a new orange jersey for their upcoming season.

This new orange jersey really is actually a modernized version of their 1978-82 jerseys. In fact, they’ve worn it as a throwback before.

A few obvious differences can be seen. The script features the dropshadow of gold along with the white trim. And instead of a collar piping, it’s a simple and boring headspoon (like the road jerseys) that runs down the front. The sleeve piping is similar to the home whites. The patch I don’t think works. It’s a nice idea, but an unnecessary one.

It is unconfirmed if their previous orange jerseys will be in use still or they have been retired. If this is the end of that jersey, then it was a brief four-year run for that jersey. But hey, merchandise sales will go up, right?
