    MLB 2020 by Carolingian Steamroller

    With the switch to Nike in 2020 its a good opportunity to reassess the direction I'd go for all 30 current MLB teams. So with any gilding the lily or further ado, here we go. AL EAST BALTIMORE ORIOLES Although I love the current Orioles look, I've recently become interested in a lot of the uniforms from the early days of the Orioles that deployed solid black piping, especially on the road. The Orioles brought this back when they went retro in the 90's but I don't think they properly committed to that look. To that end, I've gone with double width black piping at home and away and a tail-less version of their modern script. The sleeve design is a take on the smiling bird that adorned the sleeve in the 60's and we have an all black alternate reminiscent of the original Baltimore Orioles who latter became the Yankees.

    Series idea: MLB x Umbro

    The deal between Nike and the Majors inspired this idea. For those who don't know it, Umbro is an UK-based soccer brand. It's one of my favourite sport brands, which reached their peak during the 70's, 80's and 90's, and now, after being bought and sold by Nike, they've been releasing great stuff for teams like Everton, Bournemouth, and many more. I think they've managed to create an unique look thanks to the use of their distinctive logo. That's why I've been thinking about creating a series re-imagining the MLB uniforms made by this brand. But since I'm not sure about it, here's an example of how it'd look like: Every team would have two main uniforms, up to two alts and one retro design. What do you think? Feedback appreciated!

  5. Seems as if we don’t have an MLB playoff thread. NL Wild Card game currently in progress, 1-0 Rockies in the 6th.

    Atlanta Braves Alternate Road Uni Concept

    I recently had an idea for an alternate Braves road uniform. It falls more in line the Atlanta's ivory home alternate throwback. I think it's got the classic, simple aesthetic with the more modern "ATL" moniker.

    MLB 2 Portland Concepts

    Ooooops, don’t know why the text didn’t come through. Went to a Portland Diamond Project event today where six local designers presented concepts for a potential Portland MLB Franchise. Logos, hats, and uniforms. Great, creative concepts by everyone. Team Names - Portland Swifts - Portland Buds - Portland Pines - Portland Steelheads - Portland River Rats - Portland Californians, lol Pictures below:

    MLB by Nike 2020

    Well, after like 3 years of not posting anything on here due to starting college back in the day and other factors of life, I'm glad to be back. Back in 2015, I attempted to make an MLB redesign topic that was pretty below-average. Now I believe I have a solid template and a better understanding of the history of the MLB, so I'm gonna get back at it again, and do it right. So first off, lets realign the MLB again: NL East: Atlanta Braves Miami Marlins New York Mets Washington Nationals NL North: Cincinnati Reds Montréal Expos Philadelphia Phillies Pittsburgh Pirates NL Central: Chicago Cubs Colorado Rockies Milwaukee Brewers St. Louis Cardinals NL West: Arizona Diamondbacks Los Angeles Dodgers San Diego Padres San Francisco Giants AL East: Baltimore Orioles Boston Red Sox New York Yankees Tampa Bay Rays AL North: Detroit Tigers Cleveland Indians Minnesota Twins Toronto Blue Jays AL Central: Chicago White Sox Houston Astros Kansas City Royals Texas Rangers AL West: Los Angeles Angels Oakland Athletics Seattle Mariners Portland Pioneers Sweet and simple 32 team realignment. I hope you guys like what I've got in store concept-wise.
  9. After the announcement of Nike taking over the MLB in 2020 I wanted to start a new series, but given the multiple series relating the topic (all of them with great designs), I wanted to do something different. This series will only feature full-colour alt uniforms, whose designs will be inspired by the style Nike is currently using for their soccer kits (that’s where the series title comes from). Every team will use a pullover template, which tries to combine classic baseball uniforms with Nike’s Aeroswift style: The team list and order will be the following: AMERICAN LEAGUE Baltimore Orioles Boston Red Sox Chicago White Sox Cleveland Indians Detroit Tigers Houston Astros Kansas City Royals Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Minnesota Twins New York Yankees Oakland Athletics Seattle Mariners Tampa Bay Rays Texas Rangers Toronto Blue Jays NATIONAL LEAGUE Arizona Diamondbacks Atlanta Braves Chicago Cubs Cincinnati Reds Colorado Rockies Los Angeles Dodgers Miami Marlins Milwaukee Brewers New York Mets Philadelphia Phillies Pittsburgh Pirates San Diego Padres San Francisco Giants St. Louis Cardinals Washington Nationals I'll be posting new designs on a weekly basis, every Wednesday and Sunday. I hope you enjoy this series as much as I did designing the uniforms!
  10. Players Weekend is coming in just a couple of days, and nicknames have been released. Some of my favorites are Yasiel Puig's "Wild Horse", Ender Inciarte's "Game Ender", Shohei Ohtani's "Showtime", and Hunter Pence's "Underpants" What are some of your favorites?
  11. Interesting results so far. Brown with gold seems to be the favorite, although the results are all over the board. http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/sports/padres/sd-sp-padres-brown-uniform-change-blue-0714-story.html
  12. A companion series to "Players in the 'wrong' uniforms" and "Players on the right team but wrong uniform"...this is about players who spent most of their careers in crappy unis. Obviously the poster boy here is Tom Brady. But there are others. There must be others.
  13. In 2008, the Tampa Bay Rays dropped the Devil for a logo concept that could at best be considered conservative. Combined with the dull soup can that is Tropicana Field, this lead to uniforms and branding that is all together entirely too dark for a team invoking the sun. With a new stadium on the way and a new era of success (hopefully) on the horizon, now is the time to shift to a look that displays the bright future of the franchise in more ways than just the name. Sky Blue takes the stage as the new primary color of the team with Sunshine Gold as the main accent. This 1) brightens the team's look at 2) gives them a unique color combination not used by any current team as their primary look. The updated navy Ocean Blue, while absent from the primary logo, does appear in the The new logo proudly displays the TB backed by the golden sun of the Sunshine State. The Sun has a more traditional burst to it compared to the sparkle and carries on it nine points, one for each player on the field. Some rebrands of the Rays have them dropping the Bay in favor of just being the Tampa Rays and I've never thought that flowed well for starters and it alienates the team from the other area franchises. The Buccaneers, Lightning and Rowdies have all embraced the Bay and have been shown that love back. No matter where the new stadium is put, a team in this position needs to doing everything it can to rally the entire area under its banner. The cap takes inspiration from the old Expos but it meant to evoke the Sun breaking from behind clouds on a sunny day. (Or if you don't like rebrand speak, Powder Blue sidepanels with a gold bill just looks solid to me). The decision for a single cap was to keep the brand as simple as possible on the jump and of course BP options and the like would be added later. Taking a cue from one of my favorite uniforms, the home whites have the primary logo over the chest alone. The associated wordmark, while not appearing on the uniform, would be the main wordmark stripings for tickets, stadium branding etc. The road grays show the first use of Ocean Blue but you still get a sense of this being a Sky and Sun team and not another Navy and White squad. For the alternate uniform a lighter shade of the Sky Blue is used as the base which complemented the gold on top rather than a pure Sky base in which the gold was lost a little bit. Too much of a good thing.
  14. Welcome to MLB: The Defunct Series! After spending last year producing Project 32’s myriad of redesigns and tweaks, I figured that I should apply the same philosophy to the defunct teams of the majors. Much like its predecessor, each team will have two to three parts. The first part will be the main concept, the one that I’m happiest with presenting/matches the historical trajectory of the team’s aesthetics. The other will be an alternate take, in which I can explore different identities and shirk brand equity to have a little fun. I’ve also got plans to include several attempted relocations, with a focus on deals that fell through at the last minute/pose the most visual interest. These will not have alternate takes since they are essentially alternate takes in their own right. The releases will go by chronology, starting with the Boston Braves. The only one out of order is the last one since the short lifespan of the said team leaves their visual history up for more speculation.

  15. This is something that I have wondered for a long time. The MLB is really the only league in America that could realistically make the switch to a promotion/relegation style similar to that of European leagues. With no limit to how much a team can spend, and a lengthy history and following for teams all across the country, do you think it would be possible to make Professional baseball a tiered system? Would it cause more of a gap between teams who spend more? Would it help grow the game and "Make Baseball Fun Again" by having the risk of being relegated or the chance for new teams to be promoted? Let me know what you think!

    Albuquerque Amigos

    After the original thread that I had this on got locked, I decided to give this another try. This is an MLB expansion team based in Albuquerque, New Mexico that I have had in my head since I was 9. They play in the AL West. The idea has always had a cactus in mind for the fact that it is mainly desert in New Mexico. At one point, the colors would have been the colors of New Mexico's flag, which are red and yellow, but this was eventually scrapped. The colors for this is Cactus Green, Sand Orange, and Maroon The cactus is also the mascot, known as the Albuquerque Amigo. I played around on MS Paint recently and built up my skills. For one, I added maroon as one of the teams colors. I also fixed up certain parts of the logo, like how the baseball bat was off center and certain parts of lines extending a little bit. I also made a second variation of the logo with legs, but I think this one is better. Here is the new logo: With the uniforms, I added an insert so that you could see details on the hat. I also added text on the jersey. On the home jersey, ABQ represents Albuquerque's airport and is an abbreviation for Albuquerque. The text on the away jersey is pretty explanatory. I used the font Blackadder ITC for the text. Here are the home and away uniforms. C&C appreciated.

    Houston Astros Logo Concept

    Recently, while working on a different, abandoned idea, I developed the framework for a logo that I felt had some legs as an Astros concept. I've never really been a huge fan of the Astros logos in the past, and figured this had a little bit more character than the current H-Star. The explanation here will be very straightforward. The basic idea was to combine the letter A and a star into the same shape. The "gut" of the star, where the A is formed also forms the pentagon shape that represents home plate, an underused, but certainly recognizable feature of baseball. Like I said, pretty simple and straightforward. (I do realize there are some that find a logo with the mascot initial instead of the location initial sacrilege, but I really ain't one of them, so tough luck there.) Lemme know what you guys think!
  18. In my opinion, one of the best looks in baseball is an off-white home uniform. Because of this, I really liked the Cool Base Ivory fashion jerseys that were introduced a few years ago, despite not being a fan of every design. I recently stumbled upon '47 Brand's Two Tone Clean Up caps which were also off-white and featured retro team logos. I figured these caps would look good paired with uniform designs inspired by the Cool Base jerseys, which gave me the idea for this series. I took some creative liberty here and there (for instance, I was definitely not going to use the "cracked out" Tiger logo) and ended up pretty happy with the results. This will be a quick series, so I'll be positing each division at once. Let's start with the AL East! ORIOLES: RED SOX: YANKEES: RAYS: BLUE JAYS: C&C appreciated. AL Central is up next!
  19. This might become a series of suggestions for MLB uniforms – or not. We'll see. I – Miami Marlins Blue Alternate Uniform The Miami Marlins of 2018 decided to not wear their orange alternate uniform – which, I guess to most people, was a bummer! When I and millions of other people think of the city of Miami, regardless whether we're baseball fans or not, we think of bright, loud and fresh colors. The ownership of the Marlins apparently not. So, all there's left for the Fish (this year) are a white, a black and a gray road uni. Okay. That's not for me! I have created my own MLB Authentic Uniform template completely in Adobe Illustrator, since Photoshop for some strange reasons isn't working anymore on my Mac. It ain't perfect, but I'm quite content with the result. So here's my blue alternate Marlins uniform – which I would prefer over the pretty decent orange (and probably for always and ever dumped) anytime.

    Crosstown Classic Logo Concept

    What do you all think?
  21. I am fascinated, like many others, with failed expansion and relocation of big league sports teams. While I am aware of most from the MLB and NBA, there's still a lot I don't know about the NFL and NHL failed bids. I thought this thread would be a fun place to share some of those failed expansion and relocated teams. If there are any proposed logos, uniforms, etc. please share those! MLB St. Louis Browns failed move to Los Angeles (1941) San Diego Padres failed move to Washington (1974) San Francisco Giants failed moves to Toronto (1975) and St. Petersburg (1992) NFL Los Angeles Rams failed move to Baltimore (1994) The failed Seattle Kings expansion (1976) The failed St. Louis Stallions, Baltimore Bombers, Memphis Hound Dogs expansion (1995) NBA Sacramento Kings failed move to Anaheim (2011) and Seattle (2012) Charlotte Hornets failed move to Memphis (2001) The failed Anaheim and Toronto expansion (1988/89) NHL St. Louis Blues failed move to Saskatoon (1983) Nashville Predators failed move to Hamilton (2007) The failed Hampton Roads Rhinos expansion (1997)
  22. So..."Biggest upgrades" and "Biggest downgrades" are already a thing on here. I figured I may as well start the only remaining thread in the series. In your opinion, which uniforms kept the quality close to the same level as their predecessors? For me the classic example would be the lateral move made by the Denver Broncos in 1997. They went from good uniform to good uniform (in my opinion anyway) while changing the dark jersey color and radically altering their design. The 1996 Philadelphia Eagles were similar - big changes, but all in all went from middling to middling. If there is a bad-to-bad lateral move...that one's a little trickier. I'm sure someone can fill us in though.

    Braves Alternate Hat

    Mulled over the idea of a true alternate hat for the Atlanta Braves. They currently use only the Navy Hat/Red Bill/White A at home with the All Navy/White A on the road. They seem to have dropped the old Navy hat/Red Tomahawk A hat that was the alternate. Here's to trying out something different. The B from the "Braves" script. C&C appreciated. Chop On.
