As jersey week around SB Nation’s soccer sites continues, Massive Report concludes the bracket to see what Columbus Crew SC fans think is the best jersey of all-time. To check out various Crew jersey collections from our own staff, click here.

The Massive Report staff collaborated to determine 16 favorite Black & Gold uniforms that should be up for consideration in our bracket and then each member voted on their eight favorites from that selection. The top eight uniforms were determined and seeded based on the number of votes it got to form our Crew Jersey Week Bracket.

After all the votes we received in the last 24 hours for the semifinals, we have our final two Crew jerseys up for the crown. Now it’s time for you, the fans, to vote on which jersey is the greatest of all time of the Black & Gold’s 25-year history thus far.

Without further ado, the final:

1 - 2017 Yellow Acura vs. 2 - 2015 Black Barbasol

The Crew fans have spoken and it was an all-chalk road to the championship match of Black & Gold jerseys. Two kits from recent Crew history that were the top-two voted by our staff now collide for the ultimate jersey supremacy.

At the yellow corner is the 2017 home jersey with the Acura sponsorship that steamrolled its way to the final. In that 2017 season, the Crew missed out on its third MLS Cup appearance by one goal. Forward Ola Kamara was the top scorer before his move to the LA Galaxy. There are a lot of memories in that beautiful yellow kit but it’s not about success in the kit, it’s about the look.

In the black corner is the 2015 away jersey with the Barbasol sponsorship that eased its way to the final past this season’s black jersey. In that 2015 season, Columbus made history by winning the Eastern Conference and hosting the MLS Cup Final for the first time ever. Kei Kamara was the hero for the Black & Gold in that kit all year long. We already had one Massive Report staff member claim this jersey as “the best in Crew history”.

Unfortunately, Columbus fell short in the MLS Cup Final, losing to the Caleb Porter-led Portland Timbers 2-1, perhaps tainting that jersey for some.

What do you think? Yellow or bllack? 2017 or 2015? Vote now to decide once and for all what is the best Crew jersey of all-time.
