    Cincinnati Reds: Time For A Change?

    This doesn’t sound good at all. Having the wishbone C and old English C will result in a muddled “we don’t know who we want to be” look. The NL Central already has the Milwaukee Brewers around to hold that distinction. FWIW, I agree with @BringBackTheVet that the uniform number font looks gimicky. At the same time, I like the black drop shadow on the caps because by itself the wishbone C can look flat. A minimal amount of black outlining can help the reds maintain a classic look without looking bland. I would also bring back the pinstripe vests and white pinstripe hat for Sunday day games.

    Colleges In Need For A Logo Rebrand

    I was an undergrad when they released this logo, and back then I thought it looked like a beaver, not a cougar. SIUE has had some boring and generic logos, but at least they looked like a cougar. As an SIUE alum, and anyone who attended there can tell you, "fighting geese" would be a more appropriate nickname since students have to fight off mating Canadian geese every spring as they walk through campus. (Picture from SIUE campus)

    Not a great pic, but here's a view of the Patriots's AFC championship ring.

    MLB Unveils 2018 All-Star Uniforms: Stars, Stripes, and Pinwheels!

    I think that is true in the host city every year, but outside the host city how many fans are buy the ASG specific gear for their team every year?

    MLB Unveils 2018 All-Star Uniforms: Stars, Stripes, and Pinwheels!

    The over merchandising of the All-Star Game just comes off as trying too hard. It really is a one city/team event (the host team). I ask the purveyors of this board, does anyone buy ASG merchandise and why do you?

    CCSLC Championship Ring Thread

    I think it’s a nice ring. I hope the trend of including color in the face of the rings, instead of just diamonds and white gold, continues. As for the fans calling for the return of kelly green, this championship is going to keep that at bay for awhile.

    The LF wall plays well on TV and gives a face to the number, so I think it looks the best. The numbers in RCF lack names and look crowded. I’m sure the DeWitt family can find someone to give them ad dollars for the RCF space.

    It annoys me that the Cards have their retired numbers on the LF wall and beneath the scoreboard in RCF. They need to decide on one place.

    Dude, I’m a Cardinals fan and I’m not with you on any of this. Back to to the uniform talk... i could see see the Cardinals memorial patch for Red becoming the new team standard. Not to sound macabre, but many of the signatures of living Cardinals Hall of Famers would translate to a patch very well like Stan Musial’s did.

    Was a majority of the team there in attendance?

    Exactly. MLB once handled MLBShop and I thought they did a good job, but getting paid by Fanatics to manage and operate the entire thing at the end of the day is easier. A MLB clothing company on top of baseball doesn’t make sense when other companies do just that (clothing design, production, and marketing) and will pay you to do it for you.

    This M doesn’t match the uniform and it looks like the marlin got stuck on the M. This is not a good look.

    Probably wishful thinking, but I’d love it if the Marlins added their throwback uniform into a regular rotation the same way the White Sox, Brewers, and Diamondbacks have.
