Jersey 8: The 1974-80 road golds

1974-homeIf you like the current home and away uniforms, then it’s hard not to like these jerseys as well. First and foremost, they look great. The colors are clean, the horizontal stripes look fantastic, and the colors pop.  Once again, these jerseys are perfect for their era: showy, a little gaudy, and perfectly 70s.

These jerseys were worn by some pretty lousy Cavs teams. It took the franchise awhile to become decent. That being said, some Cavs greats wore these duds. Stars like Campy Russel, Austin Carr and Nate Thurmond donned these gold masterpieces. Partly for nostalgia’s sake, and partly for their elegance, these jerseys grab the eighth spot in our countdown.
