If only the Oakland Invaders had moved to LA.

Bet we’ll never find a high res pic of this...

I had gotten a shirt with this logo on it for Christmas. I wish I had kept it.

OK, so not "lost", just "short lived".  Got it.

 

There really aren’t any lost logos anymore, not in this age where every announcement is instantly disseminated across the world and preserved for posterity. 

 

We can’t really have anything like the Brewers’ aborted 1970 uniform, that was forgotten shortly thereafter.

I’d wager that most Brewers fans are still unaware of this one.  That’s a lost logo, and it really can’t happen today.

I know why they couldn't wear these in 1970, but I really wish they would have worn these in 1971.  The Tuscan lettering suits the Brewers well.

That’s a mystery I’m currently working on right now.

Right, but historically there have been “lost logos”. The Patriots logo they trotted out during halftime In the 70s or 80s was a perfect example.

Exactly. I’ll provide an example of a logo without much evidence and is heavily obscured.

<MOD EDIT>

 

Baltimore Browns????

This adds to the evidence that the Ravens are the original Browns relocated

I've seen that sweatshirt before, but never looked past "BALTIMORE BROWNS".  What the F is "CHILL" for?  Who the hell designs something that dumb?

Wasn't CHILL a fashion line for the NFL in the 90s?

As @Gothamite has written in the past, it's one of three prototypes. Here are the other two:

Of course, there are also logos that get lost when relocations fall through, such as the (ugh) "Tampa Bay Giants" redesign:

The wordmark on the far left wouldn't be bad for the Rays, given the similarity to their current font.
