#6: Numbers Are Shrunk – 1973-1976

Only a year after coming into existence, the Islanders made a change to their home jersey.

The franchise decided to change the font for the numbers, coincidingly also making the numbers a little smaller.

Other than this slight change, this home jersey is the same as the original Isles home jersey from 1972, with the blue stripe next on top of the blue stripe with a small white space in between on at the bottom of the jersey and the tips of the sleeves being orange with a blue stripe around the elbow .

Because it’s pretty much the same as the original, this jersey is ranked at #6.

#5: The Original – 1972-1973

The first Islanders home jersey in the top-five is, of course, the first-ever Islanders home jersey.

This jersey was white and had a royal blue stripe on top of an orange bottom of the jersey and an orange end of the sleeves.

This jersey had a navy blue collar and was a tie-down with a white string.

The numbers were blue with a thin orange outline and were located on the back and upper sleeves. But the jersey didn’t have names on it.

The original Islanders home jersey technically only lasted a season but it’s the basis for the rest of the Isles jerseys so I’m placing it at #5.
