  1. 2018 MLB ASG Cap Concept

    I absolutely loved what New Era started in Minnesota at the 2014 MLB All Star Game by designing special All Star caps that honored the host team. The potential was set up for new caps every year on All Star night to tell a different story about a host team's uniform history or local culture, while also allowing the game a rare chance to have some fun and get creative with their usually sacrosanct brands -- not to mention increasing merchandise sales in the process. Unfortunately, that was a trend that only lasted two seasons. So in an effort to show what could have been, each season I take it upon myself to continue what New Era once started and design my own city-centric concept caps for the MLB All Star Game. For the 2018 ASG in Washington D.C., I dipped into the city's baseball past to help inspire the cap design, while also taking cues from that time period and D.C.'s world-famous cherry blossoms to create a campaign that celebrates the nation's capital as well as the national pastime. To view the entire cap collection along with additional merchandise, plus a look inside the design process and inspiration, visit my website.
  2. The logos for MLB Postseason 2018, World Series 2018. --- Not horrific, I kinda like the banners, the gradient letters. The font is a typeset I have had on my computers since 1998, called "Bank Gothic." The only slight change is the "S" Other than that, the font is pretty much a perfect match.
  3. Greetings! This is the product of a collaboration among @Carolingian Steamroller, @Paul Lucas, @coco1997, @Victormrey, and @MJD7. We are calling our little group "Pinch Designer." We were looking for idea for a project that we could pool our collective minds on and found it in an MLB City Edition. With the NBA and Nike debuting City Edition uniforms that are designed to reflect the particular spirit and aesthetic of their individual cities we thought that applying the same principle to baseball would yield interesting and colorful results. So we held a draft for divide up Major League Baseball and got cracking on designs. Each uniform in this series seeks to reflect some aspect of the city as a fun digression from the normal MLB rhythm. So without any further ado, I present the Milwaukee Brewers: Milwaukee has tried to redesign it's city flag over the years and recently a designer came out with a "People's Flag of Milwaukee" composed of four colors navy blue, sky blue, gold, and white. For the uniform, we've incorporated the clunky font from the Milwaukee Bucks current uniforms, on a lager gold uniform, with design elements of gears and barley sheaves. Enjoy!
  4. Fun MLB Alternate Uniform Concepts

    Hi all, Decided to create a fun and new alternate concept for each MLB team, starting with the AL East then moving all the way down to the NL West. I will also be stating the style I used as well. Leave your thoughts in the comments. Without further ado, here are my AL East concepts: Baltimore Orioles (Fauxback): Using the "swinging bird" logo, I created the first Orioles jersey to not feature the traditional text used. The uniform also follows the style of the 1970s-1990s uniforms with extra long sleeves and similar piping. The cap remains the same as the one they currently use. Boston Red Sox (City/Boston Strong): In spite of not fitting the team name at all in terms of colors, the uniform uses the colors of the Boston city flag and evokes a sense of city pride (if not for the hat having a canny resemblance to the UCLA bruins logo). This uniform is meant to embody and empower the city of Boston on game-day. New York Yankees (1930s Throwback): The Yankees have been lacking any form of an alternate uniform for ages and this glory days throwback expresses enough class and style to be fit for the historical organization. The logo features a faded white and the old jersey and hat logos from the 1930s-40s. Tampa Bay Rays (Traditional): While not the most exciting alternate, it makes a much needed addition of the "Tampa Bay" name into the lore of the organization. Toronto Blue Jays (Past-Meets-Present): Using the old style of the Jays since the teams inception, but featuring the modern logo and font makes this alternate a classy and nostalgic addition to their Canadian pride alternate. Up Next: AL Central
  5. Hi folks, Whenever I read rankings of the best uniforms in MLB, I invariably feel the Chicago White Sox should be higher. Though their iconic current logo has been used off and on since the late '40s, it took the team about 80 years to find a color scheme that suits them perfectly, and I feel they should stick to it. This gave me an idea: What if the Sox had found their perfect colors sooner? My idea is to present an overview of the White Sox uniform history using their modern black and silver. While I'll try to stay faithful to each year-specific look, I will be taking some artistic liberty here and there where I feel it results in a more cohesive, satisfying design. Up until the 1950s, the Sox changed their uniforms every few years, with most designs lasting only a year or two. Because of this, I won't be tackling every single uniform they wore up until that point; rather, I'll be highlighting the ones that either lasted longest or that I felt were the most interesting. Having said that, if you have any specific requests, I'd be more than happy to try them out. Before I begin, I want to send huge thanks to @Carolingian Steamroller, @Victormrey and @MJD7 for providing many of the templates and numbers used throughout this project. Let's start chronologically with the club that won the 1917 World Series: 1917 HOME: 1917 ROAD: For the 1917 Sox, I added McAuliffe (Red Sox) style numbers as well as cap logos to go along with the jerseys. More to come soon!
  6. The Cincinnati Reds have worn their current set since 2007, and while it is an improvement over the BFBS era of 1999-2006, I have never been a fan of the black-billed road caps and gimmicky font. Is it time for a change? If so, which direction should they go? I will forever be a fan of the simple yet elegant set of 1968-71, and I'd love to see it return. I've said it before, but if they had just kept that look from that point forward, they would be considered unchangeable classics along with teams like the Dodgers, Yankees, and Cardinals. While I loved the pullovers and elastic waistbands as a kid in the 1970s, I now regret that the greatest seasons in the history of the franchise happened in those, rather than the more traditional set that proceeded them. As for the current set, they have lasted longer than most in the history of the franchise. Here's a rundown of their previous looks dating back to 1939, ordered by length of tenure: 1972 - 1992 (21 seasons) -- Pants leg stripe and second red sleeve stripe added 1988-92 1939 - 1955 (17 seasons) -- Blue highlights 1939-46, Red highlights 1947-55 2007 - Present (12 Seasons) 1999 - 2006 (8 seasons) 1993 - 1998 (6 Seasons) 1961 - 1966 (6 Seasons) 1956 - 1960 (5 Seasons) 1967 - 1971 (4 Seasons) -- Pinstripes on home uniform for 1967 season only
  7. The year is 2632. All of the Earth's ice has melted, raising sea level 200 feet. The Eastern seaboard has all but disappeared. The west coast is just the Sierra Nevadas. And businessman William Warrior wants to make America better. It's been many hundreds of years since the MLB folded. Minor leagues have been popping up everywhere, but no true successor has been crowned. William has taken 11 East Coast cities (to reduce travel costs in an unproven league) and found millionaires willing to take the risk. He has come up with a league name, the National Baseball League (NBL) (League Logo, Imgur embedding not working), and wants to start as soon as possible. Here are the eleven cities chosen and three possible nicknames for each. Charlotte Pop.: ~8.75 million Pros: The largest city in the Southeast, Charlotte is banking powerhouse. A lot of rich young bankers would be eager to own a team, if just for bragging rights. Money and ownership would not be a problem. Charlotte has a rich baseball history, hosting a team since about 1900, in both the minors and majors. Cons: No major cons, but a stadium would have to be built. Charlotte has the land, but no stadium at the moment. Chasers: Named after the playoffs of NASCAR, when it was around. Charlotte's motorsports history comes into play. Drivers: Named for Charlotte's motorsports history. Bankers: With New York and San Francisco gone, Charlotte is America's premier banking city. Raleigh Pop.: ~7.5 million Pros: Raleigh is fairly large, and will always have people due to its status as NC's capital. Cons: The in-state rival of Charlotte constantly draws things away from Raleigh. The Hurricanes of the NHL eventually moved there, and Charlotte has always been bigger than Raleigh, plus UNC, Duke, and NC State sports dominate the region. Explorers: Named for Sir Walter Raleigh's profession. Oaks: Raleigh is the "City of Oaks." Representatives: As North Carolina's capital, Raleigh hosts all of the representatives in the General Assembly. Nashville Pop.: ~7.9 million Pros: Biggest city in Tennessee, state capital, lots of young people looking to get a start, rich sports history. Cons: No clear owner has shown up, and the stadium is three decades old. Fugitives: A group of writers and critics centered in Nashville in the 20th century. Agrarians: The other group of writers and critics opposite the Fugitives. Olympians: Nashville is the "Athens of the South", and has a full-size replica of the Parthenon within city limits. Columbus Pop.: ~8 million Pros: Closest rival is Indianapolis, plenty of people to support the team, owner and stadium deal already in place. Cons: Closest rival is Indianapolis, Ohio State already takes up a lot of fans within the city. Explorers: Named after Columbus' profession. Obviously would not be shared with Raleigh if chosen. Sailors: Also named after Columbus. Cannons: Inspired by the Blue Jackets of the NHL, name taken from Columbus' Civil War roots. Winston-Salem/Greensboro Combined Pop.: ~6.5 million Pros: "Twin cities" dynamic, in a similar style to the Minnesota Twins of the MLB. Unique culture with baseball history in both cities. Cons: Easily the smallest candidate, in-state rivals Charlotte and Raleigh are much bigger. Civics: Named after the civil disobedience movement, started in Greensboro with "sit-ins." Express: Greensboro is a frequent stop for trains, both in-state and cross-country trips. Camels: Winston-Salem is nicknamed "Camel City", for Reynolds' famous Camel cigarettes. Chicago Pop.: ~9 million Pros: Largest city in contention, third-largest in the country, rich baseball history. Cons: Plans are to use Wrigley Field, and despite constant updates, the stadium is not big enough to support a team. A new stadium must be built soon. Chippers: Warrior is not quite sure where the name came from, but if used, he plans to go with a "firefighter" theme. Fusion: Chicago was home to the first nuclear pile. Machines: Named for machine politics of the 20th century, in which Chicago played a central role. Memphis Pop.: ~7.8 million Pros: Very large city, history with baseball, owner and stadium present. Cons: Nashville is larger, and after the Grizzlies left to return to Vancouver, Memphis never received a major league team. Bluffs: Memphis is nicknamed "The Bluff City." Blues: Another nickname for Memphis is "Blues City." Steamers: Named for the steamboats famous for traveling the Mississippi River in the 19th century. Atlanta Pop.: ~8.2 million Pros: Atlanta and Charlotte have been going back and forth for centuries, and a rivalry would be inevitable. Large city, with a 6 year old stadium that will most certainly suffice. Cons: No real ownership group has appeared, and the stadium's structural integrity has been questioned. Centennials: Atlanta played host to the 1996 Olympics, the 100th anniversary of the international event. Winds: The great film "Gone With the Wind" is set in Atlanta. Grays: Atlanta was a hub for Confederate activity in the Civil War, who wore gray. Louisville Pop.: ~7.5 million Pros: Fanbase is rabid for a team to complement the basketball team gained, and a stadium is brand new. An owner is willing, but anxious to take a team. Cons: Louisville has been a "one-sport" team for centuries. Despite supporting a minor league team, the cities willingness to support a losing team is called into doubt, despite the Colonels losing for decades on end and staying in Louisville for its entire existence. Sluggers: The famous Louisville Slugger baseball bats no longer exist, but are still world famous. Bullions: The James Bond film Goldfinger was filmed near Louisville, in which the title villain plans to corrupt Fort Knox's stash of gold. Thunder: The Kentucky Derby starts with "Thunder Over Louisville", the largest annual fireworks display in America. Indianapolis Pop.: ~8.1 million Pros: Very large city, second-largest in the Midwest (after Chicago), and popular destination for retirees after Florida flooded. Ownership group and stadium are in place. Cons: None foreseeable, but the city lacks a certain personality in Warrior's opinion. Soldiers: Indianapolis also was a Union hub in the Civil War. Speed: Named for the famous Indianapolis 500. Concords: Concord was a name considered for the city when it was first founded. Milwaukee Pop.: ~7.7 million Pros: History in baseball, owner ready and willing to take the team. Cons: No stadium, and the city has a history of not giving money to teams to build excessively large stadiums, but might by willing to compromise on a smaller one. Immigrants: Milwaukee has always been a hub for immigrants to the country. Musicians: Milwaukee is a music center, with many types of music being produced in Milwaukee. Rivals: Named for the three cities that combined to form Milwaukee, but not without intense rivalry first. Now it's your turn! Please chose eight (8) cities that you think would be good landing spots for the inaugural franchises, as well as a name for the team (either from the names provided, or your own). Thank you, and expect the first franchises soon! P.S.: If I made any mistakes, please don't hesitate to tell me. I will try to correct it ASAP! MOD EDIT: Embedded league logo
  8. Team USA baseball concept

    I feel the USA baseball's look has grown a little stale. I decided to try a new script style font and a little patriotic twist with the eagle head secondary with some classic pinstripes. I hope you enjoy.
  9. The year is 2025, the MLB has gone under leaving the people of the USA without baseball for 3 years now, but with huge baseball fan and millionaire Eric Lantz impatiently waiting for more baseball he starts his own league, the USBL. He loved how traditional the MLB was, so he keeps all the rules the same with one big exception, instead of one long season, he creates a playoff-like bracket. In his mind he sees it as one big playoff. Conferences mean nothing until the All Star Game. The league randomly selects teams to play each other in the first round, that will be a best of 3 series. The next round will be a best of five series, then the remaining games will be a best of 7 series. The league begins with ten teams all over the country. Uniforms The uniforms will be a combination of the NBA's uniform system (Home, away, city, alternate, and 4th of July/Memorial day) and the old MLB (White home, grey away) Nike will be the official uniform producer of the USBL's uniforms along with New Era Caps.
  10. What throwbacks from the big four major sports(NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL) that hasn't been seen before do you want to see in a game, a season, or for now on? Here's my first pick: The NFL's Tennessee Titans going with wearing the mid to late '60s Houston Oilers uniforms for a game would be cool to see, but that's me.
  11. LSUA GENERALS LOGO CONTEST

    Does any one here have ties to LSUA or know anyone who does? They held a logo contest back in August & have yet to post anything about it. Wondering what became of it, I've tried to make contact but haven't had much luck. Below is the add they posted. If this is not the right place for this by all means please move it to where it belongs, thnx! https://www.lsua.edu/news/noteworthy/2017/08/01/lsua-athletics-logo-contest
  12. It's the most wonderful time of the year! Yes, Thats right. Last year I made ugly christmas sweater themed wallpapers for various sports teams. I'm opening it again. If you have and requests please let me know. I will also post all the ones from last year so there won't be any duplicates.
  13. 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!
  14. 2017 Artwork For Joliet Slammers

    Hi all! Made a new account (formally known as Goallinedesign) to post some of the professional work I've been doing. Everything is available on my new website JackGambroDesign.com! This summer I interned for the Joliet Slammers baseball team of the Frontier League. All of the posted work was used, but I was hoping to get some feed back on as much as possible. Thanks! **Edit: Is there a quick fix for image quality?
  15. LOCKER ROOM PRESENTATION

    Just wanted to share a new template I created intended to display a uniform of any sort. Below are two finished examples, one with soccer, and another with football equipment. Message me to get a hold of a blank template with no watermark. It is saved as a png. file and I personally used paint.net. Nothing special just hoping it may spark someone's interest. Enjoy! I am accepting feedback to adjust as well.
  16. 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.
  17. 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!

  19. 2017 MLB Postseason Thread

  21. OOTP Logos

    A bunch of my friends and I are in an online OOTP league. Thought I'd share a few of the logos my roommate and I have collaborated on for some of the teams in the league. Enjoy
  22. When you have something you wanna improve on, you have something you wanna improve on. In this case, the split scripts I'd used for a Blue Jays set in the Rivalry Series. I've thought about making a contemporary uniform with those scripts for a while, and now is as good a time as any. The two scripts are based on older uniforms worn by the Jays' predecessors, the baseball Maple Leafs, with the addition of the Blue Jays' trademark split. The jay head is on the sleeve of the whites instead of the front because frankly, with this script, the front would just be too cluttered that way. For the hell of it, I included an alternate T cap. The alt blue is, like its RL counterpart, a negative of the homes, though I almost went with a royal-to-navy faux gradient and navy pants. The road alt recolors the grays into powder blue, with a powder-front cap to go with it. And since this one wouldn't leave me alone, fauxback pullovers, 80s style with the current scripts. Posting is a virtue.
  23. This is my first time trying my hand at graphic design, and I wanted to see what others thought. I'm not an artist, and I don't have an incredibly deep understanding of graphic design- I assume what I drew has bad vectoring, but I couldn't tell you the first thing about what vectors are, or what adding the suffix 'ing' to the word vector actually means. So if this is offensively amateur, feel free to let me know and I'll scrub this post! Just wondering if this is anything.
  24. 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:
