7 Throwback American Sports Jerseys That Perfectly Embody The 90s

The 1990s were a fantastic time to be alive.

Colours were bright, hair was terrible, and denim was absolutely everywhere. Boybands were blowing up the charts and Manchester United were forming a dynasty under Sir Alex, who was then just Alex, but most interestingly we saw a rise in popularity of American sports as the broadcasting reached a Worldwide audience.

Some of the jerseys that these American teams decided to wear during this brilliant decade were a bit out there, but at the time they looked perfectly normal, and now looking back they represent everything we love about a decade of some seriously questionable graphic design.

NHL - Pheonix Coyotes

The arm pattern, the logo. Fantastic.

NBA - Vancouver Grizzlies

The Grizzlies were a new expansion team that didn't have a retro logo that the fans already loved, so they wen't mental. They now play in Memphis.


NHL - The Mighty Ducks of Anaheim


This had to be in here. After Gordon Bombay's men inspired a real NHL franchise, everybody wanted one of these. They're just the Anaheim Ducks now.

NBA - Pheonix Suns


Brilliant, vibrant colours and a sun-basketball logo. Radical.

NBA - Utah Jazz

We've always been a fan of this one, and John Stockton providing assists for Karl Malone means it's also iconic.


NBA - Cleveland Cavaliers

Long before LeBron, the Cavs rocked this funky design.

NBA - 1996 All Star Game


90s perfection. The all-star game was held in San Antonio, Texas. Hence the chilli.
