  1. How is the quality compared to college football?

    College Baseball Uniforms - 2019

    Baylor is an exception. They use metallic gold in football, yellow in baseball, and neon yellow in basketball.

    2019 MLB Changes

    The Twins were planning to introduce hats featuring the logo from last year's Players Weekend caps, TC inside the outline of Minnesota. Evidently they chose not to follow through with those plans. The logo was supposed to appear on the BP/ST caps as well as the St Paddy's Day caps.

    NHL changes 2019-20

    I really wish the Lightning would use bright yellow. Pair it with black or blue, I don't care. But play up the bold lightning color idea. The ASG stuff was close, start with that.

    Alouettes Kick-Off New Era With Revamped Logo, Uniforms

    Just yesterday I noticed the delta logo forms an A and an M.

    Alouettes Kick-Off New Era With Revamped Logo, Uniforms

    The logo and general theme of the brand is fantastic. The helmet is great, though I would've used different colors. The uniforms are bad. They're certainly on the right track but the execution is lacking.

    Mid-season Uniform/Logo Changes

    In 2011 the Twins designated the cream throwbacks as the primary home option to honor Harmon Killebrew. In August the team made the M caps the primary option because of a hot streak while wearing them, creating this odd mismatch of a look:

    Mid-season Uniform/Logo Changes

    Nebraska football switched from gray facemasks to red for the 1982 Orange Bowl. They've been red ever since.

    Mid-season Uniform/Logo Changes

    The North Stars used the logo that would coincide with their move to Dallas at center ice during the last season before the rebrand to black. There's a better photo out there somewhere but I can't find it at the moment...
  10. It makes me so sad that brewery branding is really cool, yet the team named after the industry doesn't have cool branding. Regardless of how the glove logo is used, I wish they'd come up with a separate logo that evokes the concept of "a brewery's baseball team."

    Fresno Grizzlies unveil new look

    The split color word mark on the road jersey makes it seem like they literally couldn't decide if they wanted to be red or black. Red lettering carries over from the home, but could leave a black cap feeling out of place. The sock and undershirt pairings are also odd, but perhaps that'll be different on the field.

    Misconceptions of logos

    For a long time I thought Oklahoma's OU logo was a Q. This was the logo I grew up seeing:

    Misconceptions of logos

    I just now noticed the eye. I always figured there was supposed to be an eye in that shape but never really focused on it until this post.

    Misconceptions of logos

    As a kid I learned about sports teams via trading cards and collectible helmets that my dad gave me. I'd collect trading cards and organize them by team. Every now and then I'd ask my dad about a certain team and he'd tell me they no longer existed, shattering my understanding of reality. I remember getting really excited about the California Seals and then learning they were long gone. I constantly drew logos of teams from each league, which were no doubt inaccurate due to my misunderstanding of relocation and such. My dad had this NFL standings board with the little magnetic helmets. I used that to learn the NFL teams. The orange helmets faded to a very light shade, almost pink. So I grew up thinking the Browns and Bengals wore light pink helmets. I couldn't tell the two teams apart until I finally saw the Bengals on TV and fell in love with their tiger striped uniforms. I remember asking why the Colts logo was a U, thinking the Oilers logo was a power line, and I thought it was funny Pittsburgh's team was named after thieves (Stealers).

    Twins' new alternate uniform

    The two pieces of information I knew where 1) powder blue is/was returning as an alternate option and 2) they are going to have a "blue" alternate jersey this year. Now, I took that to mean those were one in the same, but evidently that isn't the case.
