  1. 90s to Now Series

    Decided to do a mini-series inspired by the Mariners "Past Meets Present" scheme. However, the reverse applies to this series, as I am taking the best/most infamous sports logos of the 90s and giving them a modern color refresh, rather than the other way around. I'm starting off with the NHL, before moving onto the NBA, and MLB (I'm skipping the NFL because the league significantly lacks iconic "90s" logos and colors). With regard to the NHL series, the logos featured are the only ones that had noticeable color changes. In my opinion, the Blues and Canucks old logos with their new color schemes look the best while the old Capitals logo looks the worst with its new scheme. Hope you enjoy this series!
  2. 2017 MLB Postseason Thread

    Seeing as it's October now and all the playoff teams are set, I figured it's time to get this started up. Here's my playoff predictions: Wild Card Games: Yankees vs. Twins Diamondbacks vs. Rockies LDS: Astros (in 4) vs. Red Sox Indians (in 3) vs. Yankees Cubs (in 5) vs. Nationals Diamondbacks vs. Dodgers (in 5) LCS: Indians (in 6) vs. Astros Dodgers vs. Cubs (in 5) World Series: Indians (in 7) vs. Cubs
  3. We have the Players in the "Wrong" Uniforms thread and within that thread I've seen a few "Right Team, Wrong Uniform" entries. I thought I'd separate the two, because it is an interesting topic of its' own. Here are a few to start the thread off with ... Charles Barkley, Preseason 1992, Phoenix Suns Matt Hasselbeck, 2001, Seattle Seahawks Jeff Bagwell, 1992, Houston Astros.
  4. Going Full Yankee: An MLB Series

    You know what, why not? I'll give this a shot. Though disclaimer, this is my first real baseball concept series, so we'll see how this is gonna go. So much like my Habs'ing the NHL thread (which I'm hoping isn't quite dead yet), premise is that I'm taking one uniforms style from one team and hitting "apply all". Of course it wont be 100% seamless. I will be doing two uniforms for each team, no alternates since the Yanks don't have a declared alternate and if the team has a name on the back, I'm keeping it there. I'm not totally sure how I'm gonna do the numbers, since the Yankees use one color numbers. It'll probably be team-by-team thing. Order was determined at random, and in the lead off spot is the St. Louis Cardinals: REDISCLAIMER: This is my first baseball concept I've posted, much less a series so things might be a little rough. Anyways, here's the Cardinals. I used the cream as the base for the home uniform with red pinstripes. Also used the hat logo for the jersey logo. For the road uniform, I used the St. Louis script from the full wordmark logo as the wordmark and used the sock stripes on the sleeves. Socks are navy with the stripes on them C&C welcome!
  5. Your team eliminated? Come on over and get coal dust all over your clothes. Yes, mothers. It's Hot Stove time. Appropriate for the changing temp and conditions. Discuss freely.
  6. Well, I guess there's no better way to celebrate post #1600 than by launching my newest concept thread! Welcome to MLB: Project 32! After posting in my tweaks thread for about two years (where I'll keep posting little one-offs), I figured I should reorganize all of my concepts with new presentations, template tweaks (mostly altering sleeve and trouser displays), and other refinements. I will try to have regular updates, as long as my schedule allows it. Above are the preliminary colors for each team, along with new divisional alignments! There are no more Centrals, but rather two divisions of eight. The Astros and Diamondbacks have swapped spots (making the 1998 expansion an AL expansion, parallel to the 1993 NL expansion), while one team has been added to each league. The top two teams in each division make the playoffs (seeded 1-4 regardless of division) and the first round grows to seven games (because no Wild Card game and "death to small sample size randomness"). This series will feature two parts per team. One part will be the main concept, the one I'm most happy with presenting. The other will be an alternate take. These will explore past identities, shirk off brand equity, and present interesting fusions. I hope to you take you guys on a wild ride, so let's get started! TEAMS American League East Baltimore Orioles (Modern St. Louis Browns) Boston Red Sox (Forest Green + Red Sox) Carolina Pilots (Modern Seattle Pilots) Cleveland Indians (Cleveland Guardians) Detroit Tigers (Bengal-ized Tigers) New York Yankees (Dugout Script + Red Accent Yankees) Tampa Bay Stingrays (Tampa Bay Rays "of Light") Toronto Blue Jays (Salvaging the Black Jays) AL East Updates/AL West Teaser American League West Anaheim Angels (Navy/Red Revival) Arizona Diamondbacks (Phoenix Snakes) Chicago White Sox (Greyscale goodness) Kansas City Royals (Royal Blue + Metallic Gold) Minnesota Twins (Forest Green + Light Blue and "Twin Cities") Oakland Athletics (Oakland Oaks) Seattle Mariners (Royal/Yellow and Pt. I Update) Texas Rangers (Dallas Chaparrals) AL West Updates and NL East Teaser National League East Atlanta Braves (Atlanta Firebirds) Cincinnati Reds (Fancy Block, scripts, and black highlights) Miami Marlins (Updated) (Florida Flamingos) Montréal Expos (Updated) (Montréal Voyageurs) New York Mets (Updated) (Black and Pink Windowpanes and Road Options) Philadelphia Phillies (Blue and Gold, a keystone, and William Penn) Pittsburgh Pirates (Updated) (Tuscan Font and Updated Pirate) Washington Nationals (Salvaging the Beveled Nats) NL East Updates and NL West Teaser National League West Chicago Cubs (Gray Update) (1930's Modernization) Colorado Rockies (Updated) (Denver Zephyrs) Houston Astros (Updated) (1994-99 gradient) (Houston Railers) Los Angeles Dodgers (Los Angeles Angels) Milwaukee Brewers (Rescuing the Germanic Brewers) St. Louis Cardinals (Updated) (1956 Modernization) San Diego Padres (Surf's Up in Navy and Brown/Light Blue/Yellow) San Francisco Giants (San Francisco Seals)
  7. When I was in my early teens, my parents bought me NCAA Football 98 for the computer. I really enjoyed the game, and it was very well-designed for the most part: 100+ schools; full-season play with rankings, major bowl games, and major awards; school fight songs; decent playbooks; something approximating logos on the helmets. It was a very good game for the late 1990s---not as good as the Football Pro series overall, but distinctly collegiate and lots of fun. Anyway, despite the overall quality, there were two details that I have since learned were wrong. One, LSU by default wears yellow jerseys over white pants at home in that game. Two, Missouri's colors are green and gold in the game instead of black and gold. (Come to think of it, I think the latter was also the case in that college hoops game for the Super Nintendo even earlier.) I was wondering: have you guys and gals noticed any similar errors in other games? (Incidentally, Football Pro 98 has the Eagles wearing kelly-green-and-gray even though they were in their second season with their current and inferior color scheme.)
  8. Houston Astros Fauxback Alt

    Hello all. This is my first attempt at a concept in quite a while and was whipped up in about 2-3 days' free time (which isn't much). However, this has been an idea kicking around in my head for a while that I feel should be an ideal, stands-out-but-still-shows-restraint take on the Houston Astros' rainbow tequila sunrise jerseys of the 1970s and 1980s. While I feel that the alternate here is much nowhere near as polished and makes perhaps the best blend of the Astros' old "cutout" star and the rainbow tequila sunrise pattern, I tried to aim for something that Houston could conceivably use, using a full star (but not beveled--even the cap logo has had that removed). Keep in mind that the number font is not the same, and I plan to do a little more refining (smoother, less pixelated star lines and so forth), but I hope you get the gist. White Option: Navy Option: I've also considered cutting less of the pattern on the front, as seen here, as I'm not a fan of the stripe just beginning at the seam, but I feel that less is more with the stripe ending at the star, though my initial thought is that that cutout section referenced the original planned A logo planned with the original rainbow tequilla sunrise uniforms. I also didn't like the way they showed up on the blue uniforms, but I may take a second look at that option as well. Anyways, I feel that there's something missing, like text or patches (which I plan to at least add), but what do you guys think? C+C is appreciated.
  9. I searched through threads for the past year and couldn't find anything like this, so I figured I would post it. The idea behind this thread is to post interesting facts or statistics that a lot of people don't know. It'll essentially be the answers to trivia questions. I've got two interesting ones to start this thread off. The Minnesota Vikings were the first team to kick an extra point from the 15-yard line. Tom Brady has played two games at University of Phoenix Stadium, but he has never played the Cardinals there. The Pats have played two Super Bowls there, but only played the Cardinals at home since the stadium was built.
  10. Rebranding the Braves?

    With the endless debate over the Indians use of Chief Wahoo, I feel it’s only a matter of time before the team also receives a name change. “Indians” is both an outdated and inaccurate term to describe Native American people. The Atlanta Braves are no strangers to controversy themselves. The leaked design for a cap bearing the “Screaming Indian” logo back in 2013 was met with such outcry that it was scrapped. There’s also the “tomahawk chop” fans have been enacting at Braves games for nearly three decades. This too has been deemed offensive by some. While the Braves haven’t endured as much scrutiny as Cleveland, I suspect they’re next once the Indians situation is resolved. I am curious where people stand on this issue. If you are in favor of an eventual rebrand, what sorts of alternate names and Atlanta-centric identities could the team explore? Is there a way to keep the Braves name and apply it to something other than a Native American-inspired identity? P.S. I don’t intend this to dissolve into another Wahoo debate, so please don’t allow that to happen. Thanks.
  11. Your Ideal MLB Ballpark Outfield

    Every MLB Ballpark is relatively unique in it's own way. What I was wonder is if you could take right, center, and left field elements from any of the 30 ballparks to create the perfect outfield what would they be? For me, the choices would be: Right Field: The Warehouse (Orioles Park at Camden Yards)- Center Field: No longer exists, but The Hill (Minute Maid Park)- Left Field: Western Metal Supply Co. Building (Petco Park)
  12. I am personally fascinated by what's going on in Minor League Baseball right now, and the majority of that is due to Brandiose's reign of two-word nickname, food logo, baby cake of terror, which to be honest hasn't been all bad imo. There are things happening down in the MiLB that wouldn't have been dreamed of 20 or so years ago, and its like watching a blowout: Painful, but fun to watch it go down. So i got to thinking, with news of Brandiose sinking its toes into the minor league hockey pool, how long is it before they get their hands on the major leagues? Now if (when) in eventuality they do, they won't come at it with a Jumbo Shrimp ideal, but for fun, I'd like to think of what would happen if they did. So I'll be taking a TBD select number of teams from the MLB and making them look like they belong in the International League, starting with the Oakland Swingin' A's (Athletics).
  13. Back with a brand new series! One of my absolute favorite periods in baseball uniform history was the period immediately at the beginning of the double-knit era. Starting with the Pirates in 1970, Major League teams switched from flannels to brand new polyester double-ply technology. Team didn't quite know exactly what to do with the new fabric. The result was a series of gorgeous, modern, colorful but clean uniform styles like the '70s Red Sox, orange-centric shooting star Astros, Swingin' A's, and feathered Braves. Things got a little crazy in the late '70s and early '80s and conservative button downs reasserted their presence. But what if it hadn't gone that way? What if the pullover and sansabelt look had stuck? The uniforms would have been modernized (I doubt we'd see the '83 Sox in the current era) but maybe instead of harking back to the flannel era, maybe baseball goes back to the early double-knits. So this series is based on that alternative history. These are contemporary uniforms but designed with the idea that the pullover era never ended but just evolved along the same lines that uniforms took to this day. We start with the champs. I've used the same revised logos that I used for my original MLB series but adapted them into the early 70's pullover look (minus the blue sleeve caps). I've added white stripes to the stirrups to better match the cap. Powder blue and white dominate the roads and I'm throwing in a blue alt for fun. Enjoy!
  14. MLB Redesigns Series

    Hey everyone, Now that I'm just about finished up with every team, I'm excited to announce the start of my MLB Redesign Series! Where as in my last series I constrained myself to just trying to fix each team's individual needs as I saw fit, in this series I'm allowing myself to go broad for the sake of making the entire league look better as a whole. Some major goals I had in the making of this series were: To allow each team to have its own unique color scheme; to diversify the overall color palette of the Majors from the overly common red and blue. To give teams more fresh and modern looks based on team history and namesake. To minimize the use of gray road uniforms as much as possible, allowing for more intriguing and colorful matchups. To give each team its own unique sock pattern that can be easily distinguishable from the rest of the league. To expand the league an extra 6 teams (1 in each division) based on the strongest Minor League identities, as well as past Major League history. To utilize traditional looks from team history when they work, but to also not be afraid to forsake tradition when necessary. Here are all the different color schemes I'll be using over the course of the series, with each team revealed on the day it is posted: I'm going to be posting every other day, in order to allow more room for criticisms and updates. I'll be starting off tomorrow with the Arizona Diamondbacks!

  16. I always come across cool sports memorabilia and never know where to post it, so I figured this topic deserves its own thread! Post any unique sports memorabilia you find, whether it is online or from your own personal collection! This item is up on eBay and I found it super interesting... a team-issued jersey, custom-made for Angie Harmon, the now-ex-wife of Jason Sehorn: Probably a gift from the team after this awesome TV moment:
  17. I was going to post this in the "Players in the Wrong Uniform" thread but didn't know if it should be there. Baseball and hockey have a rarity, that is until the G-League takes off and every team has an affiliate, in that players can come up and be sent down for a variety of reasons. It's always crazy when you see your star players suiting up for your farm teams. I got this idea when I searched for Ryan Braun while he was doing his rehab assignment in Appleton as a member of the Timber Rattlers as seen in this video.... http://www.milb.com/multimedia/vpp.jsp?content_id=1536087683&sid=t1174 As well as seeing the picture of David Ortiz playing for the same team when they were a Seattle Mariners affiliate. These aren't necessarily the wrong uniforms, just rare occasions. Are there others out there like this? What's even more rare about the above video is that it was also a famous MiLB "one off" night. Are there any others like that?
  18. I've begun collecting logos that I'd like to update. The first one I did was an old amateur hockey team logo, and I posted it here. This time I thought I'd try to get a bit more elaborate. Here's what I started with: And here's my update: Let me know what you think! PS: here's the rest of the logos I'm currently going to try to work with: pinboard. Let me know if there's one in particular from there you'd like to see or if you have any suggestions. I'm not currently planning on doing requests like Ren, but I'll definitely consider suggestions.
  19. Scrubs in Stars' Jerseys

    Simply put ... the thread is of scrubs (or lesser caliber players) in jersey numbers a same team where an All-Star or HOF made that same number their own. Here are a few examples from the NBA ... E.C. Coleman, New Orleans Jazz Sidney Green; San Antonio Spurs Steve Kuberski; Boston Celtics Cazzie Russell; Los Angeles Lakers Rowland Garrett; Chicago Bulls.
  20. Welcome to what is now my first completed concept series, the NHL City Mashup Series! In this series, I will be taking the identity of each NHL team and combining it with the identity of another team (different sport) in that team's city. Some rules I set for myself were Team must be in either the MLB, NBA, NFL, MLS, or CFL. The jersey must be in the style of the NHL team's jersey. The other team's colours will be the ones on the jersey. The fonts should be either the official team's font or a close matching font. Teams: Anaheim Ducks (Angels) Arizona Coyotes (Cardinals) Boston Bruins (Celtics) Buffalo Sabres (Bills) Calgary Flames (Stampeders) Carolina Hurricanes (Charlotte Hornets) Chicago Blackhawks (Cubs) Colorado Avalanche (Nuggets) Columbus Blue Jackets (Crew) Dallas Stars (Cowboys) Detroit Red Wings (Tigers) Edmonton Oilers (Eskimos) Florida Panthers (Heat) Los Angeles Kings (Dodgers) Minnesota Wild (Twins) Montreal Canadiens (Expos) Nashville Predators (Titans) New Jersey Devils (Jets) New York Islanders (Nets) New York Rangers (Knicks) Ottawa Senators (Redblacks) Philadelphia Flyers (Eagles) Pittsburgh Penguins (Pirates) San Jose Sharks (49ers) St Louis Blues (Cardinals) Tampa Bay Lightning (Buccaneers) Toronto Maple Leafs (Raptors) Vancouver Canucks (Whitecaps) Vegas Golden Knights (Raiders) Washington Capitals (Wizards) Winnipeg Jets (Blue Bombers) without further adieu, here's the first mashup, the Anaheim Angels in the style of the Anaheim Ducks. (Yes, I am aware they aren't the Anaheim Angels, but heck with that) C&C is appreciated! I am also considering doing throwback jerseys for each mashup, I'd like to hear your thoughts on the idea.
  21. My Kansas City Royals "50 Seasons" Anniversary Patch for 2018.
  22. MLB by Nike (Marlins Up)

    Everybody knows the news that Under Armor will be taking over the MLB jerseys in 2019, but I had the idea to think of a world in which Nike was running the MLB. This is that world; vibrant, creative, and very unique. Some of these designs will be off the wall, while others will put a modern, yet classic twist on timeless jerseys. This is my first major project, and I fully intend to complete this to the very end, so constant C&C will be very helpful and appreciated. I have no particular order for which I will be unveiling these teams, basically whatever comes to mind for me, or if you'd like, you can request a team and I'll see about getting to it! First up we have the Miami Marlins. What I've done here is tried to create a blend of the old logo set and the new one. I boiled it down to just three colors, black, orange, and light blue. Occasionally I will use gray as an outline or accent color, but those are the main three. So without further ado, here is the first set of logos for MLB by Nike. Thanks for looking and C&C is greatly appreciated.
  23. City Mashups (NBA,NHL,NFL,MLB)

    I'm not sure how exactly it started, but months back I was wondering how certain logos might look if that city had all their teams with similar colours, so I decided to do a mashup of all the teams in the major 4 pro sports leagues. Meaning how might the Boston Celtics look with Bruins colours and vice-versa. For the most part the early criteria is that they need to have the same city name(EX-Toronto Blue Jays/Raptors/Leafs). So even if some might be in same city(like Oakland A's and Golden State Warriors) I didn't do those ones just to save some time. If people want me to do more, then let me know and I'll do more. Ones like NY,LA,Chicago who have many teams, I might do later. Some I skipped because their primary logo is just too plain for this to really work(such as Indians and Pirates logo where the logo is basically just a letter). A fair amount I also didn't do if I felt the colour swap wasn't so noticeable and was nothing more than a slight difference in colour tone(EX-Washington teams red/blue). Some swaps I find look nice(like ones attached here) while others not so much(O's under Ravens colours, Bengals under Reds colours ect.), but I still did them just to see how they all look. If there are other requests you would like for me to do or see some that are missing, feel free to post it here and I'll do my best to complete it. My next project might just be colour swapping current/past logos of a teams history for those who have had notable changes, such as Brewers,Stars among others.
  24. MLB | Texas Rangers Logo Modernization

    I decided to modernize the current Texas Rangers identity. I always thought they have a good set of logos, but, since they've rebranded in 2003, they also aged over time. Current Texas Rangers primary mark 1 – Primary logo: No more drop shadow on the "T" initial. Bolder lines and a slightly broader typeface. New baseball seams. The two stars are now separately placed on a white background. 2 – Secondary logo: A modernized version of the 1994-2002 alternate logo. The two shades of silver are no longer part of the Rangers color scheme. 3 – Alternate logo: A revised version of the current alternate Texas flag logo being used on the Rangers uniforms. The bevel on the lone star has been removed, as well as the color silver.
  25. EDIT: I decided to include more teams in this concept, although I won't commit to a specific number of them. Also, to cut down the amount of scrolling necessary, original concepts will be replaced by edited versions. Team's completed: AL WEST Anaheim Angels Oakland Athletics Seattle Mariners Portland Lumberjacks (Expansion) Salt Lake Swarm (Expansion) AL CENTRAL Detroit Tigers Indians Cleveland Tribe Minnesota Twins Chicago White Sox Columbus Flight (Expansion) (NEW) AL SOUTH Houston Astros Texas Rangers Tampa Bay Rays Kansas City Royals New Orleans Krewe (Expansion) AL EAST Toronto Blue Jays Baltimore Orioles Boston Red Sox New York Yankees New Jersey Trout (Expansion) NL WEST Arizona Diamondbacks Los Angeles Dodgers San Francisco Giants San Diego Padres Colorado Rockies NL CENTRAL Milwaukee Brewers St. Louis Cardinals Chicago Cubs Cincinnati Reds Omaha Steers (Expansion) (New) NL SOUTH Atlanta Braves Miami Marlins Kentucky Gallops (Expansion) San Antonio Hammers (Expansion) Music City Strings (Expansion) NL EAST New York Mets Washington Nationals Philadelphia Phillies Pittsburgh Pirates Montreal Expos (Expansion) AAA Teams posted here AA Teams posted here A Teams posted here For my first post, I figured I'd post a concept for my favorite team, the Arizona Diamondbacks. Already to unpopular opinion-time, I actually like the hyphenated "D-Backs" on the jerseys. I modified it slightly, however, because if you're going to go with a snake fang of the "K", you'd better go with one off the "B" as well. Otherwise, you'll end up with some hillbilly snake, which is significantly less intimidating. I also like the shoulder pattern the team currently employs, but thought it would be better utilized on the end of the sleeves. I reversed the colors of the A-snake logo and put it on a red cap, which keeps the snake-skin pattern up top. The road uniform stays mostly the same, but with the shoulder pattern again moved to the sleeves, no front number, and new socks. The red jersey pairs with the red hat and is the home alternate. The black jersey no longer has the A-snake and now uses the road script and is the road alternate. The teal is added to the home and road uniforms, keeping Teal Tuesday going both at home and on the road. Throwback Thursday hangs around as well, with the only change from the current throwbacks being stripes on the socks now. Thanks for checking out my first concept, C&C welcome.
