Non-sports logos that could be good sports logos?

Recommended Posts

I vaguely remember there being a thread about non-sports logos that would make for good sports logos. I can't find it on the search. Can someone link me to it?

Every time I see an 18-wheeler with this logo, I think about how it could really work as a sports logo:

Always thought the deer crossing symbol would look cool on the side of a football helmet

Actually, that IS a sports logo now...for Vernon Hills HS in Illinois.

BMW and Volkswagen's logos look like they could belong to a European soccer club.

 

Mercedes' logo sorta looks like a logo for a military academy's athletic teams

Of course having a semipro basketball team,  the wingfoot would be a great mark.

I'll see your Knight (you're on my turf now!), and raise you a Stevens Transport:

This one I've also always liked, in a soccer-badge kind of way:

Then of course, there's the outfit I started out with, with it's NASCAR-ish look and finish:

Actually, there's a good number of trucking companies out there who really do value their branding-which I'll gladly take over the ones that straight-up ape existing sports logos. And it's a couple of them out there, one of the most egregious being...

(How they've not been taken to task over this yet is beyond me. And there's another example out there even more egregious than this...)

I'll see those and add two companies my dad drove for at one point. I've never really thought of it, but quite a few of the trucking/transport logos would make good sports logos - football helmets, specifically. The logos on the deflector/air dam (the part above the windshield, for those wondering) often look similar to football helmet logos...

It’s pretty dated looking today, but when I was a kid, I always thought the logo and color scheme from a company my Dad drove for would make a cool looking football helmet. I always wanted Interstate to sponsor my little league team so we could wear the colors and have the logo on our hats and jerseys.
