The Mets Black Jerseys

Folks keep asking for the black jerseys to come back. Metspolice, myself and a few others fought very hard in the 2009s/10s to get the blue jerseys back and to get rid of the black jerseys. The problem with the black jerseys and drop shadow was that black wasn’t a Mets color. It was introduced to sell jerseys and merchandise because that was the trend in the 90s/early 2000s. Most of the folks who want the black jerseys to return are the ones who grew up with the Mets wearing them during their formative years and I get it. But the Mets colors are Orange/blue/white and should stay that way. Should the Mets bring back the Black Jerseys? If they do, then only for this season and for a few times.  Maybe even just one time to honor the 2000 Mets World Series team. Otherwise nothing long term. The other thing that I heard is that there are no black jerseys submitted for the 2020 uniform style guide. So I guess we’ll see.
