The number on the uniform is supposed to represent the year the new retro jersey is based off. In the video, the Jets reverse retro jersey has a number 79 on the back, so the Jets retro jerseys will be derived from their 1979 uniforms, which was their first year in the NHL.

The Jets wore four different jerseys in the 2019-2020 season. In addition to their usual home and away uniforms, the Jets also wore their aviator jerseys, and their duds from the Heritage Classic.
