The Creamsicles Are Officially Back!

July 12th, 2023

It’s 1979 all over again.

The creamsicles are back, baby! And despite the scares from Lavonte David and certain NFL suits using charged words like “reimagined,” those beautiful orange jerseys with the white pants have returned.

The Bucs unveiled this morning the 2023 version of the creamsicles, not seen since 2012. And they look exactly how they looked back then, and back when the creamsicles were the official uniform of the Bucs.

A way cool video the Bucs produced is sort of a passing of the torch from Lee Roy Selmon to Derrick Brooks, Mike Alstott and Rondé Barber (who did wear the creamsicles in a throwback game in 2012) to the Bucs’ current stars Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Antoine Winfield.

The video is narrated by Brooks. Enjoy!

    They wore the creamsicles, didn’t they? Hmm…

    Read the story and watch the video and you may get an idea of the reference. Maybe.

  3. SufferingSince76 Says:

    I miss the Bucs playing in the old Black and Blue division.

  4. Da Bucs Guy Says:

    They should make them wear the creamsicles after a loss as punishment. That means we would see the creamsicles 11 times this season.

  5. DBS Says:

    Still reminds me of nothing but bad times and losing. Didn’t like them and was hoping I would never see them on the field again.

  6. Nicky666 Says:

    These turned out so good!!! Was worried when Lavonte said they were different from the ones worn in the past but these are perfect – everything I was hoping for and then some! And the promo video for these was insanely good if you haven’t checked it out I highly recommend it! 🙂

  7. Ultra ClodHopper Says:

    Great video. AWjr representing like boss!

  8. Show Me the TDs Says:

    I was around in 1976. The Creamsicles are loser uniforms.The Bucs were weak and there was a lot of talk about how effeminate the pirate looked. I don’t get the nostalgia for losing. I say burn em and good riddance.

  9. adambomb418 Says:

    Joe, those are not the same uniforms as 1979. They are very close though. The socks are different. Maybe you caught that or maybe you didn’t.

  10. Buc1987 Says:

    Sweet..they should wear them all season if they’re headed for 4 win season like I think. It would be fitting!

  11. Dooley Says:

    Bucs lowkey have one of the better media teams in the league. The video was so perfect, and Alstott being the bouncer at the club was perfect. Just put my LVD uni in the cart and I’m questioning myself whether I’ll even wear this thing or not as I just might hang it up in my basement.

  12. Joe Says:

    Joe, those are not the same uniforms as 1979. They are very close though. The socks are different. Maybe you caught that or maybe you didn’t.

    That’s a very good catch! And you are right, Joe didn’t notice the socks.

  13. Cobraboy Says:

    I am in for a Nickerson Creamsicle…and if that can’t happen, a Lynch…

  14. Jason Says:

    Important question. Are the cheerleaders getting throwback uniforms also?

  15. nick houllis Says:

    is that Lavonte David? or Richard BATMAN Wood?? LOVE IT! CANT WAIT
    Kade Warner… Morris Owens
    Ronnie Brown… Jerry Eckwood
    Cade Otton… Jimmy Giles
    Baker Mayfield… Neil O’Donoghue
    Ryan Miller… Kevin House
    Brandon Boyer-randle…. Hugh Green
    Raiquon O’neal… David Logan
    Nolan Turner… Cedric Brown
    Brandon Walton…Charlie Hannah
    oh its going to be so much fun..

  16. D-Rome Says:

    I wasn’t living in Tampa Bay or was a Bucs fan when the creamsicles were a thing. I didn’t become a Bucs fan until 2000 when I moved here. I could not care less about the creamsicle uniforms and all I see is a reminder of a failure of a franchise. In 30 years we should not want to have an alarm clock uniform throwback day.

  17. Buc1987 Says:

    I was a northern transplant that became a Bucs fan in 1987. I got a Vinny jersey expecting great things from him. I wore that jersey to high school and got picked on by the other northern transplants, for being an actual Bucs fan. This was all new to me as were the Bucs. Had no idea what I was getting myself into. Losing and more losing.

    Go Bucs and the creams!

  18. Elita Vita Says:

    @ Jason

    Jason says: “Important question. Are the cheerleaders getting throwback uniforms also”?

    Answer: Indeed they are Jason. They are being delivered to their nursing homes as we speak!

  19. KingLDavid54 Says:

    Boy, there are clearly some Bucs fans still triggered by the creamsicles!

    I can’t help but think of the subtle (but perhaps unintentional) message sent by who was included in this video… LVD54 and ME13 are the mediators between Derrick Brooks (who’s our favorite player!?), Rhonde, and A-Train, and the future generation in Winfield and Godwin…

    I would’ve loved to see Tristan Wirfs and Vita Vea in this video, too, or maybe we’ll get a second one with trench representation!!!

  20. TB2023 Says:


    I get t it’s just your job and you weren’t in Tampa then.

  21. Ko Kiefer Says:

    Love embracing the history of our team! Urrrrnge is back LFG

  22. RustyRhinos Says:

    I Love It! Great uniforms. 54 or 13? Hmm.
    Hey Joe any word on if we will wear the all pewter uniforms. Those looked great, way better then the Nike all red… Maybe 54 in Creamsicle and 13 in Pewter.

  23. Lt. Dan Says:

    Bout to break out my creamsicle Mitchell and Ness Steve Spurrier #11 and prance around the neighborhood!!

  24. Crickett Baker Says:

    I totally agree with DBS and Show Me. I, too, was around in ’76. I feel the same way and am horrified to see those uniforms again. 🙂

  25. Crickett Baker Says:

    P.S. I hope our kickers are good.

  26. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Steve Spurrier and Prancing.
    3 words that definitely go together.

  27. Voice of Truth Says:

    Fitting we are playing the Lions in the throwbacks at home

    Barry Sanders will not have 2 80+ yard runs for TDs

    But we will probably get rolled much like they did to us back then

  28. ‘79 Defense Says:

    Love it , but a year too late. What a letdown that Brady didn’t get a chance to wear it.

  29. Buc4evr Says:

    Love it, I remember Doug, Ricky, Lee Roy, Dewey, Batman, Cecil, Jimmy, James and all the others. This is to honor those guys who never gave up.

  30. BRock Says:

    Good Night John Boy over here in the Burg was a perfect bar to shoot the video!

  31. Marine Buc Says:

    OMG – I can’t wait for football to start.

    So sick of hearing about these ugly arse orange uniforms…

    Seriously – who really gives two squirts about this?

  32. BuxfaninTX Says:

    Bert Kreischer in it, Devin White is not….hmmmmmm

  33. Lt. Dan Says:

    @ Doosh..hahaha! Nice! You’re the winner!

  34. SomeDudeAtWork Says:

    These were terrible why do we have to relive this?

  35. Pickgrin Says:

    Awesome promo video!

    The new creamsicle Unis look good.

    I was worried when I heard “re-imagined” if Nike was going to be involved….

    They should have had our stars put on the Bucco Bruce helmets to complete the look – but these guys probably don’t have their personalized White helmets yet.

  36. Pewter Power Says:

    It’s foolish to think that the Bucs are trying to tank the season. How much hype will that uniform be if this team is like 1-4 or 2-3 something like that going into week 6!!

  37. Pewter Power Says:

    Uh yea better win or they’ll be called the yucks all week but man I missed the uni’s. Throwbacks should be allowed in the Super Bowl.

  38. Rod Munch Says:

    It’s still unbelieve that the team didn’t get these last year, because the lazy woke idiots at Nike said it was too hard to make them and required a longer turnaround time. If they had Brady playing in these, they’d have sold a million of them. It literally made me feel sick when I saw they had Baker showing these off. I’m not sure the reality of having that loser at QB really hit me until then.

  39. hammerhead Says:

    Throwback…..Throwup. Too many losing seasons to be reminded of with these. Love our look now.

  40. D-Rok Says:

    Cool video! Love how Alstott was the bouncer. They shoulda had Vita in there too. Maybe the uni didn’t fit?

  41. BillyBucco Says:

    Not sure I like the sleeves.
    Of course they will be wearing halter tops pretty soon.
    Whatever helps them catch the ball.
    Might need a hood for the embarrassment.

    Nike claimed they couldn’t get their Chinese slave labor to make these last year because of ‘supply chain issues’ – so yea, asking them to dedicate an entire factory to producing enough material to make a Vita uniform this early in the offseason was asking a bit too much.

  43. Rod Munch Says:

    Also the idiots in the PR department, who are such morons that they’re hiding the throwback uniform game on a Sunday afternoon vs the Lions as opposed to putting them on the Bucs in the MNF vs the Eagles – anyways, did those idiots in marketing even talk to the football side? Since when do the Bucs wear dark colored uniforms at home in a 1pm game in mid-October when it’s still going to be over 90 degrees on the field.

  45. stpetebucfan Says:

    Governor DeSantis is not going to be happy with the return to “woke” unis.

    C’mon guys fruity orange topped by a GAY

  46. Bucnjim Says:

    If anyone really wanted to see the creamsicle uniforms they should just turn on a Barry Sanders highlight video. Unfortunately I’ve been around long enough to see 2 win seasons if we got to 5 or 6 it was a good season. Sad days in the Sombrero!

  47. Bucnjim Says:

    Our first ever kick return for a TD was against the Lions though!

  48. SteelStudBuc Says:

    Was that Bert Kreischer taking his shirt off??

  49. kyle Says:

    awesome video!

  50. Marine Buc Says:

    Bert Kreischer sucks…

    Have you watched any of his comedy specials?

    They blow.

    His career peaked with the “machine” story – that was over 20 years ago.

    He seems like a nice alcoholic and I wouldn’t mind sharing a brewski with him but I am always amazed that he was able to make a career out of being a fat rich drunk.

    I knew his father. Did business with Al Kreischer when I was developing land and building homes in Tampa… He was a good, smart man. But his son is a total dope…


  51. Buc4evr Says:

    I would assume the Bucs are wearing the old uniforms against the Lions because the are playing an old NFC Central division foe.

  52. J Ghotier Says:

    Can’t wait to get my creamsicle Zach Triner jersey. EEEEEE!

    They look really great (not Russel Gage “great”) and what a nod, ode and celebration to our Bucs history.

    Tremendous job all the way around here Bucs and like the new/different socks on these too 🙌

  53. Oxycondomns Says:


  54. Crickett Baker Says:

    Those unis remind me….–don’t remind me! I think all of Barry Sanders’s highlight films were against the Bucs. And poor Batman Woods was making $18,000 a YEAR (he told me this when I met him a few years ago). AND we had to buy popcorn so we would have a barf bucket in case we had to kick the ball.

  55. Pewter Power Says:

    I’m sure Devin White feels snubbed about the video too

  56. Fansince76 Says:

    Great video! has got me pumped for the season to start!
    Brings back crazy memories watching Selmon!

  57. Jack Clark Says:

    No!!! First Todd Bowels ruins our Super Bowl winning no risk it no biscuit offense then be brings back those ugly creamsicle uniforms? And Baker Mayfield is our quarterback? It’s gonna suck being a Bucs fan again

  58. Jack Clark Says:

    Now I gotta root for a team wearing a fruity pirate winking at me??!? Smfh

  59. Fansince76 Says:

    Both Buc uniforms are great!

  60. Rod Munch Says:

    What are you guys talking about fruity pirates for?

    What are pirates known for? Pillaging, which includes having their way with the ladies (my attempt to get around the word censor). Bucco Bruce was all in that, he’s nothing but man.

  61. Rossta Says:

    Please stop the insanity. Everybody wanted to get rid of them when they were associated with losing we were made fun of. I could care less about those stupid uniforms. Keep the uniforms. We won the first Super Bowl and that’s the best looking uniform. There is sorry

  63. View from 132 Says:

    Outstanding video work. They cartoon pirate sucks though. Leave these in the past.

  64. Mike S Says:

    Just not a fan of the creamsicles. Its a slow week so we have endure this.

  65. Rod Munch Says:

    Lots of cupcakes here with no taste or style, just boring dullards. Sad.

  66. Joe in Michigan Says:

    Another crappy Nike product I won’t be buying.

  67. Oxycondomns Says:

    I like them because orange is actually a color that associates with this area . I rarely look into the tampa bay sky and see red and pewter. I like the dolphins colors because it reminds of the ocean. Those hot september games with orange unis just seem to go hand in hand for me

  68. garro Says:

    Dont like em.
    If they are not original, they are not throwbacks. Period
    Nike strikes again!

    Go Bucs!
