  1. MLB by Under Armour

    Wow, you've topped yourself yet again! I've never really cared for the "Stingrays" moniker for Tampa Bay, but you've found a way to make it work. Those two shades of green look amazing together. So much better than their bland current identity.
  2. Outlandish yet restrained designs

    What year did the Tigers wear racing stripes?
  3. MLB by Under Armour

    Beautiful job with the Rockies! I LOVE those new wordmarks (huge improvement over their current ones) and it's always a great idea to drop the black. The only part I'm not a fan of is the silver wordmarks and numbers on the purple alternate.
  4. City/State Color Identities

    Ooh, Detroit is a tough one. On the one hand, you can't have a team called the Red Wings not wear red, but on the other hand, I can't picture the Tigers in anything but navy and orange.
  5. MLB City Edition Series by Pinch Designer (Yankees 30/30)

    I love that color combo and the "OC" monogram logo!
  6. Glad I could teach you something new! Next up we have the Atlanta Braves. The Braves get two different designs, one modern and one '70s throwback. I really like how the throwback turned out. C&C appreciated. Any special requests for the next team?
  7. Hi everyone, Recently I had an idea: What if the Black for Black's Sake fad of the late '90s/early 2000s had caught on? I decided to create a new black alternate for each team in MLB that does not use black as a uniform color (with the exception of the Yankees, whose shade of blue is practically black anyway). This premise will naturally work better for some teams than others, so prepare yourselves for some late '90s gaudiness. Let's start today with the Phillies: The Phillies wound up translating really well, as the black and bright red complement each nicely. I'll try to post a new team each day, and some teams whose identities have changed over the years (such as Tampa Bay) will be getting multiple designs. C&C appreciated!

    The Twins are really solid. I like the red script on the road jersey. I'm curious now if you'll change the color scheme for the Indians.
  9. City/State Color Identities

    I'm surprised by how much I'm liking that color scheme for the Rockies!
  10. MLB City Edition Series by Pinch Designer (Yankees 30/30)

    I've really come to love that "Cubs" script. It looked great on @Victormrey's 2020 Cubs concept and it looks great here. That jersey would sell like hot cakes here in Chi-Town.
  11. MLB | Seattle Mariners Rebrand

    This is great. Could we see a full uniform set?
  12. Any suggestions on what to do with the Mets? They pretty much epitomized the BFBS trend, so I'm not sure what I'd do differently. In the meantime, I did tweak another team that notoriously went all-in on BFBS, the Kansas City Royals: This time around, I used the powder blue from their alternate, and I think it works a lot better. Thoughts?
  13. The title speaks for itself. There are a lot of (some intentionally) ludicrous MiLB identities, but many are really sharp and have stood the test of time. This list can include teams that are now defunct. The original Zephyrs had a great uniform and name. Greg Seher designed a really nice set for a New Orleans Zephyrs expansion team with Mardi Gras colors on his blog but has since taken it down. The Jordan-era Birmingham Barons had a really classy identity. Add a dash of red and you're golden: The Hawaii Islanders had some wonderful uniforms over the years, but this one from the '90s might be my favorite: The Salt Lake Bees have a strong identity, albeit a bit derivative of the Pirates. Just put 'em in pinstripes and I think you'd avoid a lot of those comparisons. What are some other MiLB identities that you feel could hold their own in the Majors?
  14. Not many teams left now. Anyone have any requests?
  15. MiLB teams with MLB-caliber identities

    I still can't figure out what that logo is supposed to be.
  16. MLB City Edition Series by Pinch Designer (Yankees 30/30)

    There's a really cool futuristic vibe to this design. I absolutely love that "PHX" wordmark.
  17. MLB by Under Armour

    It's safe to say if the Padres adopted those uniforms in a year or two, they'd be the best look they've ever worn. Superb! I'm undecided if the brown alt needs some white trim somewhere. The white really helps the "Padres" script pop on the yellow alt, and it might help the monogram logo do the same.
  18. MLB by NIKE

    Excellent! I really like how you implemented the sunrise stripes and brought back the '90s star. The only thing I'm not feeling is the sunrise stripes on the sleeves of the alternates.
  19. Indeed! Let's continue today with the Detroit Tigers. For the Tigers, I decided to use their excellent but never-before-worn-on-a-uniform wordmark logo. I also tried a version with their Old English D on the chest. Let me know which one you guys prefer!
  20. MiLB teams with MLB-caliber identities

    Man, those look great. For some reason, I can't find any photos of the later (1970s) Pelicans uniforms.
  21. MiLB teams with MLB-caliber identities

    Can't believe no one's mentioned this one yet. Let's give the New Orleans Pelicans some love, shall we?
  22. MLB by Under Armour

    What can I say? Hard to mess with a classic. I do think losing the white outlines on the road set is an improvement, as is the faux-flannel effect. Nice work.
  23. MLB by Under Armour

    Well, you fixed all the problems I have with the Cubs' current uniforms--replacing the road wordmark with the Ernie Banks-era script and dropping the "walking bear" logo on the alt in favor of the superior primary logo, bringing the jersey closer to the aforementioned '80s road top. My only suggestion would be to add piping to the collars on the road and alt jerseys, but otherwise, great job!
  24. MiLB teams with MLB-caliber identities

    Absolutely. The Seals had a great look.
  25. MiLB teams with MLB-caliber identities

    Those are all great! So far this thread has been mostly teams from the '80s-present, but can anyone think of any earlier minor league teams, say, from the '30s-60s?
