2. 2017-18 City Edition Jersey
The one that started it all, the Raptors went all-in on the “We The North” branding by creating the chevron that now defines their regular home and away sets and putting “North” in big, bold letters across the front. The October’s Very Own collaboration was starting to reach a peak at this point.
Toronto famously won their lone championship in a similar jersey that kept many of these design elements while switching to an aggressively Canadian red and white palette. Given the time these came out, Toronto should be given high marks for establishing a very high baseline of what these jerseys can look like.

1. 2021-22 City Edition Jersey
This isn’t just the best Raptors alternate jersey in this series. This is one of the best City Edition jerseys in league history. Everything fans could want in a jersey is here, all combined with a showstopping unique element that helps this stand apart from the rest of the pack.
Lightning pinstripes? Check. Old-school lettering? You bet. Giant dino on the front? Naturally. The best part of this jersey is the dinosaur, who is not only wearing a City Edition top, but is also sporting jersey No. 19 to signify the championship ring. If these were brought back permanently, no one would argue.
