    I really like the solution to the numbers on the alternate for Nicaragua. Ordinarily, you'd see the stripes either pass all the way around or they'd cut off at the seam under the arm (we sometimes forget the role of seams and fabric in design). However, for this design they've been artistically angled to make space for the numerals. It's clever while still maintaining a clean look. Cheers!

    I think the Monarchs, Oaks (silver), and American Giants are my favorites.

    Check out @Victormrey‘s concept for a good blue/black Sox design.

    One thought is that the shoulder stripes on the road set don't have the same color balance as the script. Maybe make the internal stripe blue and bottom stripe white?

    Today we finish up with the Indianapolis Clowns. A true barnstorming team, the Clowns wore bright blue and orange uniforms for much of their history. I've updated their look by breaking the orange into its component red and yellow. Simple red piping offsets the otherwise garish color scheme along with custom script. A pinwheel cap completes the most whimsical team in baseball. I hope you've enjoyed this series as much as I've enjoyed the challenge of making it! Comment on any changes you'd like to see and any personal favorites!

    Rest of the set in gold.

    Here's a gold version of the home.

    Extra detail. There are four green stripes on the cuffs/sides which lead to four oak leaves.

    Today we have the evolution of the Cleveland Buckeyes: The Oakland Oaks. With the Monarchs the toast of Kansas City by 1948, the Athletics would have had no Midwest landing spot upon leaving Philadelphia. The A's could well have moved somewhere more profitable in the long term (Minneapolis? Milwaukee?). That leaves Oakland (the A's next stop after KC) wide open and the Cleveland Buckeyes could easily have filled that niche. Switching their name from one icon local hardwood to another. I opted for green as the primary color but I couldn't decide whether I liked orange or silver as a secondary color so I'm posting them both. The racing stripe details and the font are based on the branches of the Oakland crest which also forms the basis of the Warriors "The Town" uniforms. Enjoy!

    Moving on to the Philadelphia Stars: I've envisioned a scenario where the Stars pulled off a freak pennant during a particularly interesting phase of their uniform history. Then as the double knit era came to a close they returned to more traditional and classic uniforms. However due to their success and constant presence on "Worst Dressed Teams in Baseball History" lists, the Intergalactic Stars uniforms are consistent fan favorites in the Philadelphia area. Thanks to @Victormrey for letting me borrow his gradient design from the MLB City Series Diamondbacks.

    Revised version with thinner piping. I think this is a better modernization.

    Regrettably not in this series. I've focused on teams were that were still extant around the time the Color Barrier was broken in 1947 with a couple exceptions. I could produce them at a later date.

    Next up are the Pittsburgh Crawfords. The Pirates displayed some beautiful Crawfords throwbacks this past Friday, befitting one of the great clubs of the Negro Leagues. The modernized Crawfords take a lot from tradition and history. Simple pinstripes and grey roads.

    I’ve heard that one but it’s not confirmed. Firecrackers was a team from the 1800’s. It’s unknown whether the Crackers based their name on them.
