Despite Hall-of-Fame Quarterback Dan Marino recently advocating for a change, the Miami Dolphins have no plans to elevate their 1966 retro jerseys to primary status, CEO Tom Garfinkel told reporters during the Dolphins Cancer Challenge on Saturday.

“I love our throwbacks,” said Garfinkel during the event, which raised over $14 million for cancer research. “I love when we wear them. I love celebrating our history. I think they are a great way to celebrate our history, and it makes them special that we wear them a couple times a year.”

Miami has been wearing the home version of the retro jerseys since 2015, introduced as part of the franchise’s 50th season anniversary celebrations, at least once per season. In 2019, the rotation was expanded to include a road version as well.

The home version features a traditional stripe pattern on the sleeves of the aqua jerseys, white helmets with gray facemask and vintage logos on the sides, as well as white pants, while the road version naturally includes a white jersey. Both are complemented by striped socks matching the sleeves.

The Dolphins have a 10-4 record in the home version of the throwback jerseys, including a 22-20 victory over the Dallas Cowboys on December 24, and a 2-3 record in the away version, including a 31-17 win against the New England Patriots on October 29. This marked the fourth time they wore both in the same year during the 2019-21 season.

However, Marino, currently serving as a special advisor to Garfinkel, was asked earlier this month by Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk what it would take to convince owner Stephen Ross to make the retro uniforms their future main look.

“I would like to see them come back too, because they look great – especially when we have games where we wear the throwbacks,” Marino said. “But at the same time, it’s his team. I don’t think he wants to hear that question anymore. Let’s just leave it. Let it be.”

Miami originally wore this design from 1966 to 1986, a span that included five Super Bowl appearances and two championships, before switching to a version with the main logo and smaller stripes on the sleeves in 1987. This coincided with the opening of Hard Rock Stadium – then known as Joe Robbie Stadium.

The retro look briefly returned as an alternate during the NFL’s 75th anniversary in 1994 but was shelved as the Dolphins underwent redesigns in 1997 and 2013, the latter including a new logo that abandoned the jumping mascot for a swimming dolphin.
