Attack in black
The Stampeders have an all-time record of 29-9 (regular and post-season) while wearing their black jerseys, good for a .763 winning percentage.
In 2014, a new version of the black alternate jersey — nicknamed “The Outlaw” — made its debut as part of a full uniform that included a two-tone chrome helmet and black pants. The uniform was first used in the Labour Day Classic against the Edmonton Eskimos, with the Stamps recording a 28-13 victory. Starting with the 2014 Western Final, the Stamps have won their eight most recent games when wearing the Outlaw uniform.
The Stamps were the first Canadian Football League team to introduce a permanent third jersey when they unveiled their black jerseys for the Labour Day Classic on Sept. 6, 1994. They capped the occasion with a 48-15 win over the Eskimos.
Calgary played its first black-jersey playoff game in the 1998 West Division final and defeated Edmonton. A week later, while again sporting black, the Stamps beat Hamilton 26-24 in the Grey Cup.
The mystique of the third top continued a year later. The Stamps warmed up for a regular-season game against the BC Lions in their traditional red tops, but when they were introduced, players ran out of the locker-room wearing a re-designed black jersey. The Stamps went on to defeat the Lions 14-1, marking the sixth straight victory in black and improved their regular-season record to 11-4 in the jerseys. The streak ended at eight games with a loss in the 2000 West Division final.
As part of a league-wide initiative, the Stamps unveiled new Reebok jerseys in 2005 and wore the revamped black alternate jersey on Sept. 5 — a 25-23 loss to Edmonton.
In June 2011, the Stamps introduced a new black helmet to wear during road games.
