  1. Major League Baseball Military Homebase Salute Hats

    In terms of looks, I really like some of that, it's just that the thought behind it rings a little hollow to me.

    Well, maybe you're right. I was really just looking for another Army base to balance out the set and chose Fort McCoy because they have a great patch.

    Royals = 509th Bomb Wing at Whiteman Air Force Base outside of Kansas City, MO. Cardinals = Maneuver Support Center of Excellence at Fort Leonard Wood Army base in central Missouri. Padres = San Diego Naval Base Reds = 88th Air Base Wing at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton, OH. Brewers = Fort McCoy Army base near Tomah, WI Marlins = U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command at the Mayport Naval Station near Jacksonville, FL. Rockies = 460th Space Wing at Buckley Air Force Base outside of Denver, CO. Dodgers = California Air National Guard at Ventura County Naval Base outside Oxnard, CA. Yankees = West Point Military Academy in New York. Army hats were given the new Army Combat Uniform pattern, the Air Force got the Airman Battle Uniform or Tiger Stripe pattern, and I went with digital Battle Dress Uniform for the Navy. If the base itself had a patch and it looked cool, I'd use that, but in most cases I used the patch from the base's host unit. That made sense to me, because for many teams the host unit of a nearby base handled flyover duties at the stadium, which made the partnership feel right. In some cases, like the Dodgers, I kinda picked a patch that only semi-made sense simply because it just looked real cool, with the caveat that this was simply a proof of concept.

    That pattern is referred to as "Tiger Stripe" and is a popular pattern used by the Air Force. Would be nice if these "fakes" turned into the real thing eventually!

    Eh, probably not. Just didn't get the buzz I was hoping for, so I'll probably move on to something else. Thanks for checking these out, though, glad you liked them. And thanks to everyone else for their comments, as well. Might have to start sharing more of my work.
  7. You have absolutely no idea what you're talking about, but congratulations none the less! You've obviously found a nice side job selling Madden 2010 create-a-uniform templates.
  8. The league makes millions of dollars each year selling camo jerseys, hats, and other merchandise for special patriotic holiday games, and several teams now even sport camo uniform sets year-round. This is all done as a tribute to our military, however many think this tribute is beginning to feel more hollow and jingoistic. Is slapping a team's logo over the top of a camo pattern and donating a small portion of the profits really the best we can do to honor our nation's bravest? Introducing the Major League Baseball Homebase Salute, a chance to salute the individuals underneath the uniform -- not the uniform itself. Every MLB team will join together with a prominent military base, or Homebase, within their fan region to form a charity partnership that includes special ticket giveaways, player outreach programs, and other charity and goodwill efforts. In turn, each MLB team will wear a special edition New Era hat featuring a patch from a garrison stationed at their Homebase, styled in one of three distinct camo patterns honoring the three major branches of the military. Then, all proceeds from each teams hat sales will go directly towards their Homebase charity partnership, keeping that money in the community and spurring more local support for the cause. Homebase Salute would be an impactful way to honor our best and bravest with more than a simple fashion statement, offering a personal tribute with a real personal impact on the men and women who serve our country so honorably.

    Hey guys, sorry I just saw this, I'm not terribly active on these forums. This was another one of my projects, I'm sorry to say, not the real thing. I'd be happy to make a post in the Concepts section if you guys wanted to talk about it further and ask any questions, looks like there was a pretty good discussion going a bunch of pages back.

  11. If you can't see the similarities between the two, well, then... good luck with your website!
  12. Looks about as realistic as the 2010 Madden uniform creator.

    As much as I love Nike, they sure do have a penchant for botching the easy jobs. Their job was basically already done on this one, they pretty much just had to show up and it could've looked like this:

    Anyone know if the ASG caps will be sold without the patches this year? Last year versions with the ASG patch came out first, then later versions without the patch were sold.
