RealClearSports: Top Ten Players in Uniforms that Just Look Wrong [RCS]

In light of the premonition of the 'John Hancock moment' between Favre and the Vikes, RealClearSports compiled a list of the top ten athletes who appear the most awkward in an unfamiliar uniform.

Check out the list for yourself:

10. Babe Ruth, Boston Braves (Also, when he wore the Dodgers uniform as a coach)

9. Jerry Rice, Seattle Seahawks

8. Trio of NBA Hall of Famers (Hakeek Olojuwan, Patrick Ewing, Karl Malone)

7. Wade Boggs, Tampa Bay Devil Rays

6. Gordie Howe, Hartford Whalers (But to be fair, the dude was 51)

5. "Franchise" Quarterbacks (Joe Namath, Johnny Unitas, Joe Montana)

4. Michael Jordan, Birmingham Barons (If he had stuck with baseball he might have been a 'Mike Cameron')

3. Pete Rose, Montreal Expos (Not the Phillies tight fitting baby blue pajamas?)

2. Joe DiMaggio, Oakland Athletics

1. Bobby Orr, Chicago Blackhawks
