    MLB: The Defunct Saga - Toronto Giants Added

    I’m a huge fan of the Chicago Athletics look, the simple forest + white color scheme immediately has a classic feel to it that works perfectly. I’m not entirely sure on how I feel about the Seattle Sox, I will always love that scheme but something seems “missing,” I guess. If you could, I’d love to see how that set would look with striping similar to the real-life Sox away uniforms, like you tried with the Germanic Milwaukee Sox. I feel like that would help put the concept over the top but I would understand if you want to keep the headspoon piping. The Toronto Giants look great all-around, a pretty perfect blend of the Jays and Giants. Either of those color schemes would be fantastic, black/orange & royal/kelly are two of the best schems out there.
  2. If I could choose, I would have the Twins embrace navy more, and have Cleveland embrace red, as they seemingly have over the past few years.

    infrared41's Best and Worst - NFL 2018 Week 6

    This is the one combo I’m really hoping they try with the new set. I think the black jersey/teal pants is one of their better possible combos, but in my opinion this would be their best.

    Report: Miami Marlins Getting New Logos for 2019

    I’d say it pretty much looks like a perfectly equal compromise of the previous two brands—a lot of the curved & pointy lines of the inagural set, with some of the art deco minimalism incorporated from the 2012 rebrand. In that sense, this was a good approach to take. If this is really the new logo, I’d say I like it, but like always we’d have to see the full thing before making a final judgement on it. I do hope the secondary color is closer to a pink/magenta and not a maroon, as that would be random and too Phillies-like to me.
  5. Put me down as having Rams-Vikings as my matchup of the year so far. I don’t know what it was about that game, but something about it just really appealed to me. Browns-Raiders and Chiefs-Broncos both looked great too. There have been some really great matchups so far this year.

    The Padres 1998 uniform is one of my least favorite in their history. It’s probably mostly because I feel brown & yellow should be the only Padres scheme, and also because the Tigers (and now the Astros again) have such a hold on the navy & orange scheme. The clunky wordmark doesn’t help things for me either.

    NFL REDESIGN (Bills 10/16)

    These have all been at the very least really solid so far, and a lot of your designs are up there as some of the best and most creative I’ve seen on these boards! You clearly have a strong ability to use different design elements such as stripe consistency and color in unique ways. Some of my favorites are the Jets, Dolphins, and Seahawks. Amazing job overall so far, looking forward to more!

    Sorry I have sort of fallen behind on commenting lately (real life has a way of getting busy at times), but here are some of my quick thoughts on the teams I’ve missed: San Diego A’s: I would’ve personally preferred powder blue, and the font is a bit tough to get used to at first, but now I see that it shares some resemblance to the ‘04 Padres rebrand font. Kansas City A’s: Absolutely classic set. I adore the main home & away sets. Now that I look at it, the home reminds me a lot of the Padres 2016 home uniform. Kansas City Blues: Beautiful use of the two blues. Every single uniform/logo is great, though I wouldn’t expect any less from you. The sublte music note in the wordmarks & logos is a particularly great touch. Kansas City Monarchs: Yet another gorgeous set of uniforms. Each option is fantastic, but I find myself really loving the alternates. Purple & athletic gold is simply one of the best schemes out there. Milwaukee White Sox: The Germanic colors for the Sox is just a genius idea. Such a great set. I don’t have much else I could say about it. Washington Senators Mk. I: Beautiful. As @Paul Lucas said, this would be a great set for the Nationals too, though I might honestly like the name “Senators” a bit better. Does the away have a slight blue tint to it? Either way, it looks great. Senators Mk. II: This is definitely a 90’s look, and you were able to mesh navy/red/gold about as best you could. I really like the custom font. Overall, great work as usual, some of this might be your best yet!

    Best looking matchups

    These aren’t the best pictures ever but these are two of my personal favorites:

    I actually like 2 chrome helmets in college football: TCU’s purple helmet and Louisville’s cherry red helmet.

    Thei play on the field didn’t look at all great tonight, but in my opinion Florida State’s black-out alternate is one of the best in college football. Even if it is BFBS, it’s a good look.

    Sort of going off of this, I know this will never happen but I wish every sport would wear white at home (exceptions such as the Lakers notwithstanding), and a color jersey as the away (alternates could be worn on the road as well), like the NBA used to. This way home fans can get used to seeing their team in white, while getting to see a lot of different looks from other teams. This also would help make baseball matchups a little less bland than white vs gray.

    This has been a wonderful series to follow! As @bucknut42 did, I also put my MLB x Nike series back to allow myself to fully appreciate your great designs. I love the amount of creativity put into this that goes beyond the conventions of typical baseball uniforms, especially on the BP designs. Looking forward to seeing what you have next!

    Wow! Like @coco1997 said, that Seattle script is absolutely gorgeous, and I also love the white cap look and the updated elephant logo. I think I like the version with yellow slightly more, but both look great.

    I think Milwaukee might be my favorite A’s team so far! I love how all of the colors and design all fit within the Milwaukee brand. The Atlanta set is really clever too, especially with the kelly green equating to the Braves’ royal blue for the throwbacks. It goes without saying, but another fantastic and well thought out design!

    NFL 2018 changes

    I completely agree. I wouldn’t mind if they added an option of white striped socks, but I really don’t mind the set the way it is currently at all either. In fact, it might be my single favorite uniform in the NFL (With a little bias there, admittedly).

    NFL 2018 changes

    Generally I actually like Nike’s “matte” fabrics, but seeing those old pictures compared to the new, the Bucs are one team that really could use shiny pants.

    MLB changes 2018?

    I highly doubt Jeter’s ownership will go Yankees pt. 2. The polls they put up earlier this year with questions about the uniforms show that they are at least trying to invest in the community and the fanbase to see what they want, leaving all options on the table. I agree that the art deco needs to be imbraced, and hopefully this new set can be sort of a “refresh” of the current version.

    I think I’d prefer if the striping on the collar and sleeve cuffs was teal instead; the black numbers themselves aren’t inherently bad (they offer maximum contrast), but when everything in the set is black & white, that’s when it tends to look a little plain. The contrasting teal striping would offer that little extra pop.

    This game pretty immediately shows the downside of the Jaguars’ simplicity. From pretty much any distance they’re an entirely black & white team, when they should have one of the most unique schemes in the league.

    This Brewers set is great! I like the color distribution a whole lot more than the Braves version, and all the brewery imagery is inspired. If the Braves franchise stayed in Milwaukee but rebranded as the Brewers, this would be an ideal identity for them. My only suggestion is that I think the gold-brimmed hat could be the primary home option, to give it a bit of that extra Braves flair.

    The Br(aves)ewers look nice! I’d never seen that AA look before, but it fits well within the set. I also like the powder blue tinted road.

    NFL 2018 changes

    I think you could maybe argue that the overarching element for the Jaguars could be the color teal, but yea it’d be hard to justify that since they chose black as their primary home jersey and their away has basically no teal at all.

    The new pants stripe is definitely an improvement for me. I also like the swinging friar BP. Well done!

    The Milwaukee Braves look great! I’m glad that Milwaukee doesn’t have a navy/red team currently (it doesn’t really fit them in my opinion), but they would definitely be a more classic team than the Brewers. I love the transfer of the BiG logo to the Braves, that’s a genius replacement for the lowercase “a.” Well done!
