  1. Retro MLB logos on Outfield Walls

    Wonderful thread! Do you have anything from Arlington Stadium?
  2. Okay. Here's a try at getting this thread un-jacked. These appear to be shots of the contemporaneous Arlington Stadium outfield (though maybe a little earlier than when that picture of Fergie was taken). You can see the same Twins logo (partially obscured), the Angels "A" cap logo, the White Sox "sox guy" partial, the Royals R-and-crown partial, (something unrecognizable), the Orioles bird-and-cap cap logo, the Red Sox full logo c. 1965, the Indians mid-70s partial, (something unrecognizable). I guess this really gets us nowhere. Sorry. I do think that the Twins might easily have used something like this and would probably buy a t-shirt with this logo.
  3. That's the 1977-1980 patch. http://www.sportslogos.net/logos/view/hae9fhrzuyhlev4kjg6r88psc/Texas_Rangers/1977/Alternate_Logo
  4. Proposed Chicago Bears Logo from 1973

    I think this "proposed new mark" would have been solely for non-field applications replacing the "roaring bear." It would have fit in well with its contemporaries. Not that the Oilers and Cowboys each had stylized helmet logos at the time.
  5. I like non circular MLB primaries, and the Dodgers magnet on my childhood standings board looks like this: However, the slightly older magnet board Dodgers logo did feature a circle, so maybe this is a homage to that.
  6. 2017 Topps & Bowman are acting like the circle-around-it logo is the Dodgers' new primary. Which is a huge downgrade, obviously. Hopefully just a case of Topps getting it wrong.
  7. Original Dolphins logo rotation error? (Falcons too).

    Another one with the original orientation of the Falcons logo. Found it on Twitter and a commenter immediately responded saying the ATL logo was backwards. :-)
  8. Original Dolphins logo rotation error? (Falcons too).

    I think we have created a collective memory of the original Falcons using the logo faced forward. Actually, it is a very similar effect as the use of the original dolphin-in-hoop logo. We're foisting the later orientation onto the original logo. In both cases, helmet application greatly aids our ability to misremember, but that doesn't mean that there wasn't an original orientation that we're failing to document.

    And not just media guides...
  10. Original Dolphins logo rotation error? (Falcons too).

    Yeah, Topps may not be reliable. What about the media guides?
