Classic Rangers jerseys question

I know that at some point the Rangers wore jerseys that said New York diagonally across the front rather than Rangers. Anyone know what years they wore it or why they did and stopped?

mid to late 1980's I beleive.

www.nhluniforms.com might have the years exactly

edit** from 78/79 season till the 86/87 season the rangers blue away sweater had the word New York spelled out in the front diagnolly.

If you think about it, its more logical to have the jersey read "Rangers" diagonally anyway.That way it matches the logo.

Road jerseys should always have the city name on the front.

When the jerseys said "New York", they were the Rangers road shirts. I personally love them and have several in my collection.

I thought it looked great and I saw a used replica online that I bought. The lettering is ironed on, but its soemthing different and nice looking.

I wish I could get an old one that says New York on it, Reebok should consider selling them, they would be a hit in sales.

Yes. I t was a NHL thing. the jerseys were put up for auction after the game for a 9/11 fund. Wasn't a night to be bitter about that. Buffalo is in NY too. Islanders are not.

Maybe so... but hockey jerseys should always have a logo on the front

I wonder what the new Rangers threads will look like this year. I'll miss the Liberty jersey. That's still one of the best jerseys of all time... in any sport.

Maybe other hockey teams jerseys should have a logo, but not the New York Rangers. I love the diagonal lettering and I hope they never do away with it. However, I did not like the New York jerseys. I don't hate them, but I like the diagonal Rangers better than the diagonal New York.

I'd like to see a white away shirt with the word New York in diagnol lettering. IMHO. But it doesn't matter much. I like the fact that we DON"T have a logo on our sweater. While I love our club crest, we are unique in this regard.
