Take note of the striping and deep blue of the uniforms.

This is a photo of a recent game taken from the Rangers' official site:

What the heck happened? Those first uniforms looked gorgeous. The current uniforms are too bright, in my opinion.
What the Rangers are wearing now, color and striping, is closer to what they've worn since their inception. Color included.

The separated stripes were only around late 80's-mid 90's. So only less then a decade. That's not what their real uniform looks like.

And, IMO no way looks better then the real deal which is the design they wear now. Only gripe I have is the Edge jersey is garbage with the curved bottom.

Examples from inception 1926 through to the 70's.

They went to the crummy separated stripes and then back in the 90's.
