    MLB Neutral/Unusual Site Games

    Because of the falling tiles at the Kingdome (as referenced above), the Mariners also played "home games" in Anaheim. I remember attending one of those games and getting awesome seats because of the first come, first served policy!
  2. IIRC, that's from preseason 1990 when the NBA on-court apparel license shifted to Champion from MacGregor Sand-Knit. Teams such as the Celtics, Spurs and Jazz that had previously worn Sand-Knit block numbers used the Champion block numbers during that preseason... and then switched back to Sand-Knit block for the regular season. Not sure of the reasoning, but I'm sure teams like the Celtics looked at their jerseys and saw something was 'off.' I do remember some of the jerseys with the Champion font trickling into regular season use, as well. There were several teams that actually adopted the Champion block font full-time in 1990 (and used the font for several years after that): Seattle, Sacramento and Washington.

    Name That Font!

    Raiders font is Futura Heavy. The font on those soccer jerseys looks to be a version of DIN.

    That is the correct NOB font, but I know what you're getting at. The NBA style sheet and all replica Clippers jerseys have the condensed sans serif font as the NOB font, but the on-court Clippers jerseys have always had the serif block letters. Weird.

    Name That Font!

    There's a font called Werkman that's not similar but maybe 25% close to it. Any other guesses? I'm looking for something a little more similar. The "SAN DIEGO" wordmark is based on the font Industria, but the letterforms are extremely modified. Thanks... but that doesn't really help. I'm looking for the actual font or something damn close. Not just something that kinda, sorta looks similar with heavy modification. Oh well. It is what it is. Not all logos or wordmarks use exact versions of fonts. In fact, i'd venture to say most sports logos employ use of custom letterforms or existing fonts that are modified. Good luck searching for what you're looking for.

  9. Did you receive my email re: Brooklyn B?

  10. Hello,

    Sorry I didn't see your message before (about the Brooklyn "B"s). I mostly post from my phone, and so I don't often see messages.

    If it's not too late to help, drop me a line at

    I believe the actual font for the player names and numbers is Rockwell Condensed.
  12. Hi... my name is Ross Yoshida, Design Director for the Los Angeles Dodgers. Could you please shoot me your e-mail? I'd love to discuss the Brooklyn 'B' with you. We want to get it RIGHT.

    New Rangers Uniforms

    Yep. Also, if you look closely, the primary home and road jerseys have a "3D block" shadow on the front TEXAS wordmark and a "drop" shadow on the back numbers and letters (The difference? '3D Block' is designed to look '3D' a la the 49ers numbers, and 'drop shadows' are like what the Mets' jersey wordmarks and numbers have). Unbelievable that a major league team's uniform has these types of inconsistencies. It's what happens when you mix lazy and stupid when re-designing your uniforms. BTW, the Angels have the same problem of not knowing their lettering 'shadows.' Their red alternate jersey has an ANGELS wordmark with drop shadows and numbers with block shadows. On a side note, all of the jerseys I mentioned above have FOUR layers of twill lettering. I'm sorry, but that's just overkill... any jersey that needs more than three layers of twill is severely over-designed. Not only does it look bad, but all the extra twill makes the jerseys considerably heavier.

    2009 NBA All-Star Jerseys

    It's wasted potential that a lot of teams all use single-level radial-arched varsity serif for their nameplates. Can't more teams use straight or vertical-arched names in typefaces that are more in line with the rest of the uniform? The worst offenders are the Bobcats, with their big heavily sheared modern numbers, topped with standard-issue radial lettering. The Heat have the same problem. They should use italic block, for example. I suppose one obstacle to this is that there's simply not enough real estate for anything more than plain thin letters. Solution: make more real estate. Those Suns jerseys up there with the big grey side panels? They're awful! What's the point of big panels of grey? It's not even silver. Just dull grey. I believe NBA teams are only allowed to use four different standard fonts for last names. A sans serif similar to Compacta (Lakers, Pistons, Rockets), a sans serif similar to Helvetica Compressed (Cavs, Raptors, Pacers, Grizzlies, etc...), a block with serifs (Bulls, Knicks, Clippers, etc...) and a block sans serif (Heat, Celtics, Spurs, etc...). I don't necessarily like this system, but this is why NBA teams don't use more customized name lettering like the other leagues. I agree with you that it would be nice if some teams would use a font that better matched their wordmark and/or numbers, however, I think what the NBA was trying to do is establish readability as priority #1.
