The jersey brings back a uniform script not seen on an in-game uniform in 32 years, the Giants wore this logo on their jerseys originally from 1977-1982.

There are several differences between the 1982 version and 2014. Most notably is the new jersey is button-up rather than pullover (thankfully). The stripes around the collar are now a simple single black pipe, which also runs down the front… there is no sleeve stripe on the new look.

There is also a slight beige drop shadow on the new script outside the white border, this beige drop shadow is present on all the modern-day Giants jersey logos.

With this new jersey, the orange alternate worn from 2010-13 is gone. The Giants wore their Friday orange alternate last season 12 times to an even 6-6 record.

The Giants become the second MLB team in two days to unveil a new alternate uniform, yesterday the Los Angeles Dodgers revealed their new grey road alternate jersey.

UPDATE (Jan 31/14 10:15pm ET):

The San Francisco Giants just tweeted out a new photo which shows that the new orange jersey indeed has numbers on the front, just like the originals!
