  1. Logos associated with failure.

    Stick a fork in them they are done. Their last logo.
  2. Teams with similar colors as the Houston Oilers?

    WHA Nordiques in there first season (1972/73)
  3. Thrift Store Gems 2017

    Spent way more than I usually do in the thrift stores - picked up these two handknit sweaters for $40 each on Friday. That day I just couldn't leave them there. Winnipeg Blue Bombers & Winnipeg Jets.

    Picked up this Mexico baseball cap for $4 at Value Village We had the WBSC U-18 World Baseball Cup here locally this summer, but I believe Mexico only wore green caps during the tournament so this is likely from another event elsewhere. 5950 New Era fitted hat with tag with World Baseball Classic and logo tag sewn inside and logo on back of cap. this logo but without the words:
  5. Beer Cans and Bottles

    Someone on a local memories Facebook group had a pictured of canned water from many many decades ago. from CP (Canadian Pacific) Railway.
  6. Beer Cans and Bottles

    looks like the stubby is back (too bad it's only limited time) http://www.lcbo.com/lcbo/product/sku/493965 On the topic of stubby bottles here's a few from the past:

    Picking pretty sparse recently. Picked up a vintage Expos pill box style hat in great condition at a second hand consignment store for $10 (not my pic but this style): Also found a rarity at a thrift shop - an old CFL book for $3 Mel Profit: For Love, Money, and Future Considerations (Photographs by Terry Hancey. copyright 1972)
  8. Unique ice designs

    K-wings with the infamous McDonald's uniforms and the yellow ice:
  9. Your city's Mount Rushmore

    Couldn't do a 'Mount Rushmore' based on my city's teams (no pro teams) but if it was players that were born and/or lived here there would be wealth to choose from though it would be hockey heavy: would have to choose 3 of the 5 from hockey: Alex Delvecchio, Jack Adams, Edgar Laprade. (More recent consideration Eric Staal) curling: Al Hackner skiing: Dave Irwin (or possibly Steve Collins)
  10. Worked on this as entry in Uni Watch fauxback jersey contest. Modified my slight modification (Paint/MS Paint "friendly") of Sparky Chewbarky's sweater template to smaller hockey sweater dimensions more in keeping with the era depicted. Didn't submit this one after reading the area posted above "The Rules" regarding something to the effect that it needed to be original and not a knock-off (like the Rays were of the late 1970's Padres). Made up a fake history where the Oakland Clippers didn't move to Spokane but instead moved to San Jose, and drew up a chain stitched Sharks logo for the sweater. I modified the striping by making it a bit simpler and thicker so it wouldn't look like a direct knock-off of the Oakland/Spokane Clippers. So although I don't like it as much as the one above, the one below is what I entered: That about as good as I could do with the limited spare time I had and the even more limited artistic and computer graphic ability. If someone want to modify it, use some aspects of it to make something better, throw in their own take on the idea, etc., feel free.
  11. New Honey Comb Branding

    Here's the (current) Canadian packaging:
  12. Thrift Store Gems 2017

    Team Canada jersey for $21 Germany hockey socks for under $2
  13. Canada 150 concept logo

    and here I figured some of the reason for the triangles was inspiration from Canada's 1967 Centennial logo. Some of the symbolism of that logo's triangles was: "The content of each symbol concept featured a stylized maple leaf as the primary element and 11 elements representing the 10 provinces and the North West Territories — the accepted structure of the country at the time." https://www.gdc.net/article/2014/12/15/2967

    haven't bought anything there yet but have been made aware of this site: https://sidelineswap.com/ Found that one out from one of the hockey jersey pages on Facebook: There are many different groups on Facebook that I am aware of that have a sale section for hockey jerseys - most seem to be or either lean towards or are exclusively game worn and authentic jerseys though (mostly out of my price range). can sometimes find cheaper ones sometimes on "NOT Game Worn Hockey Jersey Collectors." You can find postings for a variety of sports jerseys on "Thrift central".

    $17 for the jersey. at one point was actively searching for this one at a half decent price. $1 for the hat (voted worst minor league hockey logo by The Hockey News 2 years running)
