MLB Changes 2017

Recommended Posts

The locker room tshirts for the world series were actually pretty nice! The font looks so much better solidly filled without the weird bezels.

I goofed around with an old alternate logo concept of mine for a fantasy baseball team called the Moons. Realized it could work for the Astros and threw a pennant on his bat after the game last night.

That's awesome.  You should probably lose the moon reflection in the helmet, though.  Looks like a goofy face sticking out his tongue.

I "brandiosed" it. 

 

How's this?

Meh. I think it’s too clever by half. The H, which should dominate, doesn’t read much at all. 

 

(Now to dig up my reaction from when it was first posted years ago, see how consistent I am. ;) )

 

To me, it's no different than the W dominating the Hartford Whalers logo, with the H hiding in the negative space.  If anything, the H is more prominent in this logo even if it is the lower half of the logo.

Almost perfect.  Can I suggest one final revision?  The primary logo is too small to work with your astronaut.  Maybe something like one of these for the shoulder instead:

That would make an excellent mascot-like sleeve patch like the swinging friar, the barrel man, mr met, mr red, etc.

I see what you're saying. Thanks for the help.

That was my thinking. I used Mr Redlegs as a reference however many years ago I made the original.

I think it shows an obvious influence without being a direct copy.   Puts it squarely in the legacy of mascot logos in MLB, which is excellent work.

It's nice, but I don't think it fits on the uniform or in the ballpark (unless in a children's club capacity) because it doesn't fit the old-time look of both.

Truth.  And I say that because I didn't see it until you brought it up.

Kinda, yes. Wanna make myself sort of a "what if" cap.

I wish Houston would have stuck with the Randy Johnson set. They would probably still be wearing them today. That star is still the best logo in team history
