Thanks for the shout! The reworked 'Stros is much better than what they trotted out last year. 

 

Thanks again for your tequila sunrise suggestion!

 

Today's team is the Kansas City Royals:

The Royals had a pretty solid Players' Weekend look, so I didn't feel compelled to change it much. I color corrected both shades of blue and added a contrasting cap bill. 

 

The Angels are up next!

Next up are the LA Angels:

I used the Angels' brighter, Disney era shade of red. I also worked some of the periwinkle from that era into the wordmark and cap logo. I decided to keep the non-arched version of their wordmark because I thought it worked well here. C&C appreciated!

 

The Dodgers will be up tomorrow!

I really like the Disney blue on both the jersey letters and the cap logo. Good work!

 

Thanks!

 

Next up are the Dodgers!

I had some fun with the Dodgers. I wanted to incorporate the red from their front numbers, so I decided to use their current alternate logo as their jersey wordmark. I also color corrected their royal blue and brought back their Brooklyn-era baby blue. C&C appreciated!

 

Miami is up next!

Are there supposed to be numbers on the back of the Dodgers jerseys?

 

Bah, you're right. I don't know how I missed that. I'll fix it soon. Good catch!

Today we have the Miami Marlins:

For the Marlins, I opted to bring back their teal and used a white outline for the wordmark instead of black. I also went with a contrasting cap bill. I honestly wouldn't mind if the Fish wore something like this full time. As always, C&C appreciated!

 

The Brewers are up next!

Solid set after solid set! Marlins are stunning!

 

Thanks!

Sorry for the late post today, but hopefully it's worth it. Up next we have the Brewers!

I wasn't a big fan of the Brewers' Players Weekend design, so I decided to take a different approach, embracing their throwback look. Blue and gold return, as well as their arched block wordmark and the BiG cap logo. C&C appreciated!

 

Twins are up tomorrow! 

 

P.S. I went back and added numbers to the Dodgers.

Thanks! I'll try out a '90s version once I finish the whole series.

For the Twins, I wanted to incorporate more gold, since their original PW design only used it on the cap. I made the outline on the wordmark gold and also added some gold to the sleeve and collar stripes. Big thanks to @Carolingian Steamroller for reproducing the cap logo. C&C appreciated!

 

The Mets are next!

Let's move on to the Big Apple with the Mets!

The Mets stay more or less the same. I color corrected their blue and orange and put Mr. Met on their cap in place of the "NY" logo. C&C appreciated!

 

The Yankees will be up tomorrow!

Any cap with Mr. Met gets a thumbs up from me!

 

Glad you like it!

 

Now to the other side of town with the New York Yankees!

For the Bronx Bombers, I decided to use their excellent secondary logo in place of the more generic wordmark logo they actually used. I also gave them a contrasting cap bill and made the jersey numbers white instead of gray--I figure if any team can break the rule, it's the 27-time World Series champions. C&C appreciated!

 

The A's will be up tomorrow!

I hate that they participate in this, that said, your set is definitely an improvement. Great work...throughout!

I agree 100% with your sentiment. ;)

 

Next up are the Oakland Athletics!

The A's design stays pretty much the same, except for one big difference: I decided to embrace the retro Kelly green and gold they brought back this year. C&C appreciated!

 

The Phillies and Pirates will be up tomorrow!

The next two teams in the series aren't changed much, so I'm being generous and posting both today. ;) Here are the Philadelphia Phillies and Pittsburgh Pirates:

I liked that the Phillies were the only team in the league to wear their logo on their jersey, so I kept that. I also color corrected the blue trim to their '70s/80s powder blue. For the Pirates, I color corrected their yellow, arched the wordmark and gave them a black cap bill. C&C appreciated!

 

The Cardinals are coming next!

Today's team is the St. Louis Cardinals:

For the Cards, I decided to swap navy for powder blue, inspired by the team's '70s/80s road uniform and their AAA affiliate, the Memphis Redbirds. I also used their alternate cap logo instead of the StL monogram. C&C appreciated!

 

The Padres are up next!

Once again, great work! Phillies are my fav so far, they have a lovely retro vibe.

 

Keep up the good work!
