    MLB: The Defunct Saga - Milwaukee Brewers Added

    Love what you did with the Browns. I wasn’t sure if I liked the red in place of orange, but it’s growing on me. So I’m imagining this AU, where the Birds ended up going to Milwaukee, and the Browns stay in StL. That means later on when the Seattle Pilots arrive, they won’t move after one season. The team that would have been the Brewers would have to show up in some other city. Baltimore? Unlikely, if the Senators had anything to say about it. That may have been fine in 1954, but by the 70s? Who knows?

    A couple MLB TATC concepts

    Yeah, that was kinda an accident. I meant for the Braves to use the pullover too. I may do more teams if I have the time.

    A couple MLB TATC concepts

    On June 30, the Royals and the M's will try to bring back Turn Ahead the Clock Night. I think it's a cool idea to bring the future here for a while, to really push the boundary of what a baseball uni should look like. Having said that, I made a concept showing how it would look if my Cardinals, who play the Braves on June 30, joined in on the futuristic fun... I was going for something cool, pretty to look at, but not quite something you would want to see replacing what we have now, since, y'know, it's supposed to be from the future. Feedback appreciated.

    Well, what do you think of it? Is this the best you can do? Do you honestly see a real MLB team wearing this?

    Cleveland Indians Rebrand Concepts (Guardians added)

    CLEVELAND GUARDIANS The primary is meant to resemble a classic car badge. The font used for the wordmark is the same one used by Studebaker. The wings on the primary and cap logos, and the spire on the sleeve patch, are all inspired by the Guardians of Traffic sculptures.

    Does the circle need to be skewed like that? Almost looks like the guy's wearing a space helmet.

    Hardest City for Fictional Concept Leagues

    Lions could also make an appropriate, non-cowboy themed name for a Texas team. There are more lions living on Texan nature reserves than in their native habitat in Africa.

    I think I get what you're saying. I'll try the Blues one again when I get a chance. CLEVELAND SPIDERS Here's one for the "Winning Ugly" book. I wanted something fun, funky, and memorable for the Spiders. The font used for the home/road wordmark is called Freestyle, accompanied with a simple spider-ball logo I came up with myself. That's all the alternate names I can think of. I'm open for further suggestions, if you have any.
  9. Will the TV numbers go on the shoulders or the sleeves?

    CLEVELAND BLUES This one's a bit more simple. The name references their colors and blues music, an ancestor to rock 'n' roll, hence the Flying V underneath the wordmark. C&C appreciated. Gonna try a Spiders one next.

    Arizona Coyotes concept

    Almost there. I would change those white stripes to tan so they fit in better with the rest of the jersey.

    CLEVELAND BARONS What's that? You don't want your team to be named after a tyrannical French monarch? How about a famous German pilot instead? The Barons have an alternate inspired by Richthofen's famous Fokker Dreidecker plane. Feedback welcome. I'll try a Blues concept next.

    YANKEES NO PINSTRIPE CONCEPT BY KONG TOM

    Well... what do YOU think of it? Do you think you did a good job? Could you see the team actually wearing these?

    Cleveland Indians Rebrand Concepts (Guardians added)

    UPDATE I revisited this concept recently and made a few changes. First of all, I dulled the powder blue on their road uniforms so its more greyish. Then I used a new cap logo, based on the cursive C from 100+ years ago. I also updated the hat/ball logos accordingly. Basically wherever the old buckeye C was, the new one is there. Although the hat design no longer references the Ohio flag, I decided to leave the stars on the hat for some reason. I think that's all I'll do for this one. What do you think?
  15. Chief Wahoo retires after this season, but some advocates say that won't be enough. Some are calling for the Indians to change their name completely. If it does come to that, I'd say the Cleveland team should consider reviving one of their older nicknames, such as Napoleons (aka the Naps) or Spiders. Not long ago, I've seen someone's attempt at bringing back the Naps identity, which inspired me to try it myself. The primary features the name Naps on a baseball wearing a feathered cap. A partial logo features that same ball without the wordmark. I so wanted to put a face on that ball, but I was afraid it would be too similar to the Reds' emblem, which also features an anthropomorphic baseball. The cap logo, along with the stars, is meant to evoke Ohio's flag, its red disk with white outline representing the letter O as well as a buckeye seed. Then I added a blue alternate with a red cap to go with it, and a fauxback uni resembling what the team used to wear the last time they were the Naps. I say fauxback because it isn't quite historically accurate. It is based on their home uniform from 1909, which had a block C on the cap instead of the cursive C to match the one on the jersey. That's about it. Let me know what you think. EDIT: I decided to make this a mini-series for rebrand ideas for the Indians.
