In the last decade, each of the big four professional sports teams that call the Valley home have changed their uniforms.
In 2005, it was the Cardinals.
In 2007, the Diamondbacks.
In 2013 it was the Suns, and this year it is the Coyotes.
The Cardinals and Suns have each introduced alternate looks to go alongside their base combinations, giving them even more options to choose from.
But are they good options?
According to ESPN.com’s Uni-Watch Blog, the quartet of teams combine for the 15th-best uniform combination among 20 big-time sports cities.
The Suns have quietly become one of the better-looking NBA teams, but Phoenix will never become a first-class uniform city until it does something about the Cardinals. There’s the absurd pants piping, the silly underarm striping, the unnecessary black uni, the blood-clot look, the old-school helmet paired with the new-school uniform, and more. Blow it up and start over.
On a scale from 1-10 (with 10 being the best), the Suns graded out the highest at seven, with the Coyotes (5), D-backs (4) and Cardinals (1.5) leaving them with a composite grade of 4.38.
The top-ranked cities on the list are Boston, Pittsburgh and Chicago. Trailing Phoenix are Cleveland, Houston, Denver, Tampa Bay and Atlanta.
