  1. To Split A Script...starring the Toronto Blue Jays

    I would agree that either they should both be slanted (and the home script wouldn't look good straight) or straight, except that slanted Jays and straight Tronno Toronto follows the source material... I'm very conflicted here. I really like this set, though. Clean presentation, good looking concept, well thought out and faithful to the history. Kudos. Do more of this.
  2. It's more Angel-y than real life without being overkill. It's a good look that would give them an identity more than, "A big A with a halo." First time this series I'd say this, but this is better than what they actually wear. EDIT: I would advocate for giving the angel Al's signature cap, maybe on the alternate?
  3. Snapping Turtle Logo concept

    I love it. My one concern is that he looks very happy, which I don't have an issue with, but I'm not 100% it was your intent. If it was, it's perfect. If not, he needs to look a little meaner.
  4. MLB: Project 32 - Houston Astros, Pt. III Added

    I kind of prefer the Firebirds to the Braves (in a vacuum, not for the real team, obviously). Is that a bad thing? Also, I think we all know what needs to happen for the Miami alternate...
  5. Minor League Football

    Didn't see anything about it when I searched, but there's another minor league supposedly in the offing. I don't have high hopes for this one, either. No team names/logos (yet?), but we do have an awful league logo and a map for the teams. I know this one is 99% never going to get off the ground, either, but I don't understand the reasoning behind trying to start so big. I count 31 teams, which is bigger than MLB (100+ years in operation), in an industry which literally never works. At least they'll give us some identities for high schools to rip off?
  6. CCSLN Airport Logo Thread

    Courtesy of Wikipedia. At least we're consistent?
  7. "Buttons was the name all our fans want, but we don't have any ideas for what could be swinging in the logo, so we're going another awful direction." It's going to be the Sweet Teas. I'm probably going to end up in a cap, but they should really just take my logo idea and run with it (it even works for Brandiose). Buttons has local connection and just enough minor league flair, but the quote from the GM seems to indicate that they saw how popular it was and threw it in the vote so the fans wouldn't riot. We know they don't care about the voting results. AAA All Star Game looked good. Without the longstanding tradition we have (had?) at the MLB level, it was a good balance between league and team and the jerseys weren't too garish. My cousin looked good on the hill.
  8. European Baseball Championship Sim

    Love this so far. Would love to see more about the teams, maybe the full logos or the uniforms instead of the mini icons. Thanks for including the IBL, by the way, even if they could use some serious redesigning. I was a big Beit Shemesh fan back in the day (and then ended up living there for a year later on).
  9. Happy Independence Day!

    I think it's better without the background. You still see what it means pretty clearly, but you have to actually see it, it's not forced on you by being across the stripes. Two things I'd change, though, if you're looking for that. I'd reverse either the red or the white helmets top to bottom, as well as half the blue lines, to give it some more visual variety. Also, I don't know if it's possible, but if all the blue helmets were teams with white logos, it'd give the flag some star-like pieces to fit the flag.
  10. MLB: Project 32 - Houston Astros, Pt. III Added

    Wow, the AL East was an experience, and I loved (almost) every pixel of it. Looking forward to Oakland, although I will admit to some terror regarding Part II there. My guess is that KC will be channeling the Negro League Monarchs? The fact that Texas is the only one showing a hat (with brim!) on the teaser is... intriguing, to say the least. Anchor is a bold choice for Seattle; why not a symbol they have in their history, like the trident? And, uh, did the D-Backs and the Astros switch places? Can't say I have an issue with that, standings-wise. Ultimately, I think we're all in very safe hands with @SFGiants58.
  11. Cool Find in Cooperstown

    My father and I took an impromptu day trip up to Cooperstown today because, you know, why not (there are benefits to living in the City), and noticed something very cool as a uniform buff (my father was unimpressed): The first ever (according to the Hall) baseball uniform, worn by the Baraboo (Wisconsin) Base Ball Club. I figured this would be appreciated here, and that it wouldn't really fit in MLB Changes 2017. It's a standard old style jersey, complete with a bib bearing a pale-ish blue old English B (I'm not the best photographer, plus glass in the way). The cap is plain blue, with a white band of what I believe was leather across the lower crown. Just thought it was an interesting piece of uniform history to share with y'all. Are the first uniforms in other sports known? Would love to see. As a bonus, some uniforms that don't get a lot of coverage here: the All American Girls Professional Baseball League.
  12. NHL Preds, Sens & Ducks

    Your work (and since finding this thread I've looked through, well, pretty much everything you ever did) is incredible. I'm still not 100% sold on Nashville, there's something off with the shape of the head that I can't place, but... Wow. Well done.
  13. I'm personally partial to California City.
  14. Those are... Not great. What's really throwing me off is the disparity between the different logos. The Cowboys' brand (punny) is simple, but it's clean and unoffensive. And then you go down to Santa Fe, and... That's a hot mess, there's a team wearing a clip art star, and Topeka is scary. Also, Las Vegas, New Mexico?
  15. Defunct company rebrands *REQUESTS TAKEN*

    Some really good work up there, You do a great job keeping the character of the story and still making something that you wouldn't stop and stare at for all the wrong reasons. I'd love to see: - Cingular - Sym's - Gimbels Brothers department stores - J&R (a huge electronics store that shut down a few years ago) - Sleepy's - A&P grocery chain - Borders bookstores
