Welcome to Day 2 of the Uni Watch Power Rankings, as we continue our worst-to-first evaluations of all 122 uniform sets in the NFL, MLB, NBA and NHL. (If you missed Day 1, you can see some of the ground rules and parameters we're using here.)
One thing that became apparent while compiling this project is that the current state of uniform design isn't all that terrible. With 122 teams in the mix, you'd expect the tipping point from bad to good to be at No. 65 or so. But the actual good-to-bad dividing line turned out to be in the mid-80s -- which happens to be part of today's installment. So even though we're still in lower portion of the chart, quite a few of the designs being assessed today aren't that bad.
Remember, you can click on each team's name to see its current uniform set, and we invite you to post your feedback in the comments or on Twitter, using the hashtag #UniRank. See you back here Wednesday.
(Special thanks to Michael Barreras, Jared Hartung, Mark Meeks and Zack Tanner for their photo research assistance.)
