The Reds wore this uniform style during home games in the inaugural year of the ballpark that was christened the "Palace of the Fans."
The Reds have worn many unique uniforms through the years. Here are some of the most memorable ones.
NOTE: The Reds adopted uniform numbers beginning in 1932.
The 1911 season was one of several years in the first two decades of the 20th century that the Reds adopted a solid navy blue color scheme for their road uniforms.
This minimalist style was chosen as the home uniform design for the 1912 season, the debut season of Redland Field which was the ballpark built on the same site as the Palace of the Fans.
To celebrate the Reds' first World Series appearance, the club ordered new uniforms for the Series that featured a slightly altered C-Reds logo on the jersey fronts and a more pronounced claw shape to the "C" on the cap faces.
The Reds wore this uniform style during 1935 home games which marked the last time the club has taken the field at home without the word "Reds" or a wishbone-C appearing on its uniforms.
This style was an attempt to offer players a lighter weight and more breathable alternative during the
hot Cincinnati summers and also incorporated red pants for the only time in club history and a unique
script representation of "Reds" on the jersey front.
All teams wore a commemorative patch during the '39 season that erroneously dated the game's
centennial to Abner Doubleday's mythical invention of the game in Cooperstown, New York, in 1839.
The vest-style uniform that was partially inspired by the bulging biceps of Ted Kluszewski was a first for the Reds, and it also marked the only time that the Mr. Redlegs mascot appeared on the front of the team's jerseys.
The club's new look in '61 featured a navy blue-infused "C-Reds" mark on the front of the jersey, a blue border around the "C" on the cap, and a black band to the left side of each jersey honoring longtime owner Powel Crosley, Jr. who passed away shortly before the season.
This one-year style uniform was the last Reds uniform to incorporate pinstripes until 1993 and was
also the last locally-manufactured Reds uniform.
MLB officially identified the game's year of origin as being 1869, so in 1969 the league celebrated the centennial with virtually every MLB club sporting an MLB patch on its uniforms.
The Reds' historic '76 season played out against the backdrop of America's bicentennial and the
centennial of the National League with most NL clubs wearing a commemorative uniform patch
that featured the centennial logo.
To show support for the military and Operation Desert Shield during the 1990 World Series, uniforms of both the Reds and A's were affixed with American flag patches in addition to the World Series logo patch.
Two years after the 1993 pinstriped uniform was introduced, the Reds donned this look in their first
return to the postseason since 1990.
For the first time in club history, black became a primary element of the Reds' uniform color scheme in 1999.
