Ugliest uniforms in baseball history

In the latest Astros Q&A on the official site, somebody asks what the worst uniforms were in modern baseball history, Astros or Padres. They ask Astros broadcaster, Jim Deshaies:
...most definitely, the Padres yellow and brown combination from the 1970s was worse than the Astros' orange-yellow-purple-red pattern.

"The mustardy-brown combination they had going on was really ugly," Deshaies said. "They've been good in recent times but that stands out to me."

Deshaies kind of liked the rainbow uniforms.

"They were ugly, but they were ugly/cool. The Padres thing was just ugly."
You know who else wore a rainbow on his shirt? Captain EO. Now you may think that rainbows are prettier than mustard and brown, and that's OK, but at least we didn't dress like Captain EO.
