  1. MLB changes 2018?

    Huh. Apparently it's the same color as the Nationals Little League Classic uniform: a navy that's so dark it's nigh indistinguishable from black. Pretty much the Minnesota Twins move. I've always liked it when teams keep name at home/city away even in their colored arts. If the Nats are doing this, I'm in. I'd like them to only wear this on the road and everything else at home.

    Wow. This whole time I've never actually thought about that. I guess the arch being similar to the arch of the scoreboard made it always seem natural to me.

    Not to mention the ballparks that have the wrong logos and names plastered all over the place.

    What's UA's jersey's technology in terms of vents and such? And seriously. They pinstriped the sides. The just figured this didn't matter because it's hidden in the pants?
  5. Huh... Your post... completely changed since I put your sig together. Do you want me to add the Oilers? @OhiOsFan17 Oh! Yeah. Sorry about that. Currently changing the way I display National Championships. Was working on Ohio State and hadn't added the championships above the Rose Bowl trophies. Here's the updated version.
  6. Well, @OhiOsFan17, until you say otherwise, here's a version of your sig. Lemme know if there's any changes you want. @Wackyriderfan14, I actually went a couple months ago and predid all of the CFL, so I had this nice and ready for you.
  7. Given your desire to focus on the Colts' Baltimore history, do you also want me to leave out the Orioles' pennant as the St. Louis Browns and the 76ers' championship as the Syracuse Nationals?

    Anyone up for golf? This rubberish material for the patches? I'm kinda into them. Not because I think they look good on the cap, but because they look pretty hardy and will long outlast the cap, with a number of possible applications once the cap is done, or even if you just want to rip them off now.

    The Reds featured black back in the day as a third color that was on their logo, but right after the Marlins went black caps full time, the Mets introduced their black set, and Tampa and Arizona were introduced with black (a lot in Tampa's case and a little which would grow in Arizona's case), Cincinnati went black cap and sleeves at home, and then the next year went to their famous black-spattered road uniforms. The year before this change, they'd finished sub-.500 in the middle of the NL Central with a token All-Star pick for Bret Boone. They were likely just doing what everyone else did, trying to drum up interest with a change. I don't know which clip to go with. That's the second time I've heard someone bring up the White Sox. Why? That C is the C used by the original Cincinnati Reds (or at least one of the first). I've never seen anything showing the White Sox wear anything like it. If anything, the old White Sox stuff looks like the Indians' C's.

    It's... a tough thing to figure out. Do you go with the more recognizeable name and brand? If you put Japan or Korea on a cap or jersey in the native language, are people going to have a clue what it is? If I saw a jersey with Korean on it, I'd be more of the thought that it's a jersey for some KBL team than their WBC jersey. Does anyone besides Spain and the DR on their caps go with their name in their language?

    I was very upset about these uniforms when they came out, but more for the way they ditched their identity. It was flawed, especially the wordmark across the cap, but it had a lot good points and for a competition that has a lot of overlap in color schemes, it looked unique. I wish they'd evolved instead of wholesale changing. It's jarring for a powerhouse of a fledgling competition. Wish they'd built off this sharp wordmark I've always loved. Man. Those are not good models for your uniforms. We got any images of... more the kind of person we'd see playing for Auburn? This can really screw with your perception of how things look. I'd often hated the Cubs' blue alt because on Zambrano and Piniella made it look like pajamas. Now I've been exposed to it more on people that make it look more like a real jersey. You say that, but notice the away grays. This is the NL during the Wild Card Game at an AL ballpark. Those are all those teams standard away uniforms. Not only are the Astros in white Tequila Sunrises, there's powder blue aways, full colors ones, and even a few colored aways over powder blue. That's not counting the Braves' blue sleeves for their grays.

    They've learned from the Angels what not to do.

    If there's a wordmark on the jersey, it should be team name on home and city name on away. Logos can be used to get around this. The Dodgers I'd say are the only one's I'd grandfather in if they want to go that route. And if you want an alt, just go the extra mile. The Twins did it. Why can't everyone else? It's useful to differentiate between outright malicious racism and something which accidentally just kind of doesn't look or sound right. The problem is when people persecute the latter as if it were the former. Is Buck groping Wonder Woman in those pictures?

    It's nice, but I don't think it fits on the uniform or in the ballpark (unless in a children's club capacity) because it doesn't fit the old-time look of both. Truth. And I say that because I didn't see it until you brought it up.
