    MLB 2 Portland Concepts

    I'd like to see a concept for a team called the Portland Cascades.

    Oh man, that might be the cheesiest thing I've ever seen.
  4. I agree with @Carolingian Steamroller—that tertiary logo is really sharp!

    I think the Steelheads and Pines ones have potential, but the rest are goofy. Did you snap a pic of the Californians concept? Either way, thanks for sharing these.

    MLB x Nike Aeroswift - Boston Red Sox (2/30)

    Great job on Boston! I really dig the non-arched scripts on the jerseys.
  7. You know, I think I actually prefer that plain white version of the Sox home set. With the addition of a third color to their identity, the lack of pinstripes allows the red and yellow to breathe a bit better. While I'm not a huge fan of that first Brewers prototype, I love the second one! The third isn't too shabby, either. I'm amazed at how many excellent A's and Brewers designs we've gotten this series. For the Seattle Sox, I'd go with some version of their '76-81 logo. Heck, with Chicago and Seattle both having seven letters, you could swap out the former for the latter in the logo and it would be a seamless transition. I'm most curious to see what colors you choose for them.
  8. At long last, the Milwaukee White Sox! I’ve been waiting all series for this concept, and you didn’t disappoint! Love the black/red/gold color scheme and the Germanic scripts and numbers. Curious if you ever considered going with a clean white non-pinstriped look for the home set, a la the ‘69 Sox:

    Really intriguing premise for a series. Looking forward to some outside the box designs!

    MLB changes 2018?

    Saw this today on the Unique Threads Instagram page. Early prototype of the White Sox 1990 jerseys: Most notable differences are the lack of pinstripes and the contrasting front numbers. Anyone ever see this before?
  11. Why are the front numbers so low on the jersey?

    MLB by NIKE

    Great job balancing the black and pink for Mother's Day. Looking forward to the Father's Day designs!
  13. More fantastic work! That primary logo would become instantly iconic if the Monarchs were a real MLB team. Are the Milwaukee White Sox finally up next?
  14. The simplified guitar pick logo is a big improvement.

    Indians Remove Chief Wahoo from Uniform in Toronto

    I have a feeling we'll see a move away from any kind of Native American imagery altogether.

    Indians Remove Chief Wahoo from Uniform in Toronto

    I think of the different options you posted, this one is the best.
  17. I think this is one your best concepts to date! I’m a sucker for a music-themed identity and would love to see one in MLB. (Heck, you could take the Nashville Sounds, use one of their earlier uniform designs, tweak the colors a bit and promote them to the Majors and you’d have an instant classic.) I love what you’ve done with the Royals’ “KC” logo by incorporating the music note head, and the logos and scripts are all perfect. I don’t think there’s a single thing I’d change. Bravo!

    Did a rough mock-up of your idea, using logos and wordmarks from various recent "Redesign the Tribe" contests.

    How about the Barons?
  20. Let's move on to the AL West: ASTROS: ANGELS: ATHLETICS: MARINERS: RANGERS: C&C appreciated!
  21. Hi everyone, This is a series I've been wanting to start since last August. When Major League Baseball unveiled their Players Weekend jerseys and caps, the reaction was decidedly mixed. Some uniforms turned out pretty great, while others didn't make much sense. Many were put off by the use of bright neon colors that looked mismatched with the rest of some traditional teams' uniforms. Recently, I decided to try my hand at "fixing" these jerseys. Here are the rules I laid down for myself: - Stay faithful to each team's actual color palette, but use older team colors for diversity's sake - Caps with contrasting crowns and bills are allowed - Use the same block number style to unify the designs - Every team gets its name (not state/city) on their jersey Some teams will be vastly different, while others will only be slightly tweaked, but every team will be changed at least somewhat. Many thanks to @Carolingian Steamroller and @Victormrey for helping me out with this project. Let's start off with one of the more dramatically changed teams, the Arizona Diamondbacks: For the D-Backs, I decided to embrace the bright color aesthetic and go with a combination of their classic purple and their new, brighter teal/turquoise. I also paired the jersey with their throwback pinstriped pants. C&C appreciated! The Braves are up next.
  22. Big improvement on the new "C." Just like the updated "M" you did for the Milwaukee A's, it makes a huge difference. Can't wait to see the Blues! EDIT: Since the remaining A's relocations (Chicago, Phoenix, New Orleans) would have occurred in the '70s, does that mean you'll be switching to a pullover look for them?

    Major League Hockey: Baseball Crossover (MIA Added!)

    These designs have all been really, really solid. Keep up the great work! Any chance we could see a version of the White Sox based on their '83 look, but with the batterman holding a hockey stick instead of a bat?
  24. The only thing that doesn't really work for me with the KC A's is the Old English "C." Could you try making the vertical stroke in the middle detached from the rest of the letter like this? I can already tell I'm going to love the alternate take. It's been a while since we've gotten one of your totally original identities, and you always hit them out of the park!
  25. Well worth the long wait for the Surfin' A's! I like everything you've done here, most notably the blue & gold color scheme. The primary logo is really fun and I love the interlocking Old English "SD" mark. My only suggestion would be to angle the scripts on the home and road jerseys. They look a little too static the way they are now. Curious who's up next. The KC Athletics?
