Yahoo! Sports: New Cardinals jersey puts ‘St. Louis’ in uniforms

Twinkies may be history, but creme abides…

What’s the same? The trademark redbird twins still perch upon the famous yellow bat. Except the birds have eyes instead of dots, and the bat looks more like a bat. And the base color of the jersey is off-white, and a red yoke runs around the neck and down the chest — similar to a uniform that Stan Musial wore with the Cards in the 1950s.

Oh, and it says “St. Louis” instead of “Cardinals” on the front. Not since 1932 has any Cardinals jersey done that.

These are the duds the Cards will wear at Busch Stadium on Saturdays this season. They’re pretty sweet, at least in two dimensions. The Cardinals already had one of the more popular looks in sports uniforms, as Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch points out. Only the NHL’s Montreal Canadiens and the NFL’s Chicago Bears have cooler jerseys, according to a recent ESPN poll. Cards team president Bill DeWitt III doesn’t think this addition will harm his team’s uniform tradition.

These are awesome. I will be forced to purchase.

Really nice, slightly retro without being obnoxious about it. Jerseys as classy as their fans.

Which, of course, is the point of having a Saturday home uniform.

Don't do it! The last guy who wore that uni got arrested for it!

The Cardinals seem to be taking after the Giants' off-white home jerseys, which give the appearance of flannel uniforms. Speaking of which, I'd love to see an MLB team adopt Under Armour's mock road flannels...

i was prepared not to like it, but now that i've seen it, i'm definitely ok with it.

i hope the players all start showing more sock too.

I'm aware I'm part of the problem.
