TXHT Jersey Share – Beware the Storm

Ladies and gentlemen welcome to another edition of TXHT Jersey Share where today we take a look at our third Reverse Retro 2.0 jersey with the Tampa Bay Lightning.

For the 2022-23 season the Lightning would hit a home run this time around as they would bring back the Thunderstorm jersey, but this time with a color swap to it. Originally worn from the 1996-97 season through the 1998-99 season, the Lightning’s Thunderstorm jersey would be blue “skies” with black water to insinuate a thunderstorm during night over the bay. The sleeves on the original would be black with lightning running down the sleeves. The shoulders would also be grey to represent the storm clouds. It was a very intuitive jersey design, especially for the late 90’s that had plenty of crazy designs.

Fast forwarding to this past season, the Lightning would do some changes. For one, they would make the jersey white and the water blue. The rain on the jersey would go from grey and black to grey and blue, but the sleeves and shoulders would remain black and grey respectively. The lightning on the sleeves however, would become patches instead of sublimated like before.

Overall, this is a fun jersey for the Lightning and one that was very well received when it was unveiled. Plus the Reverse Retro battles they had with the Panthers and their Miami Vice vibe jerseys meshed really well together. All in all, a great jersey to have in the collection.
