The New York Giants have announced that they will bring their iconic uniforms from the 1980s and early 1990s back.
The team will wear it for two games during the 2022 season and that statement alone makes Giants fans reminisce about the good ol’ days.

This Giants fan loves the fact that the team tied up the past to the present.
He also petitioned to have this as the team’s permanent home uniform.
While that decision rests in the front office, the buzz generated by this announcement has their beloved supporters excited for the upcoming season.
For sure, they will buy the jerseys of their favorite player in this iconic design.
Likewise, the franchise elevated nostalgia to a higher level by announcing the return of another throwback element.

Seeing that end zone brings back the time when the team scored a lot of touchdowns en route to their two Super Bowl titles under head coach Bill Parcells.
They hope that the current players can replicate the success of those legends by piling up the points.
While some football fans are jubilant for the return of the Big Blue uniforms, some argue that it’s like an imitation of another team’s uniform.
These are so much better than the Giants current uniform but it’s also just the Bills uniform https://t.co/pEFGyc8Ot1

That sentiment is gaining ground as another Twitter user commented the same thought.

While the uniforms of the two New York teams may look identical, there’s one element of the Giants uniform that the Bills cannot replicate.
One of the discoverable elements of the classic jersey. The “Heritage Neckline.” #Giants Legacy needed to be on display every time a player or fan puts on this jersey. #TogetherBlue pic.twitter.com/RnKAkIGdRe

That line makes Giants players from the past feel honored that their uniform is making a comeback.
