    I'll never understand why some people on this forum flip out about the usage of black in these uniforms. They never wore black jerseys. Never wore black pants. Never wore black socks. Yet the minor amount out black used with these in relation to the green and white has been vilified and tagged BFBS *sighs and shakes head*

    CAROLINA TWINS - Triad Troubles We’ve reached the mid-1990s. The Tampa Bay Sweepstakes have played out, with both St. Petersburg and Phoenix getting expansion teams. However, relocation remained an option for many of the cities left out (as we’ve seen with the Virginia Fury and Sacramento). One of these regions was North Carolina. From 1996-1998, businessmen and politicians in the Piedmont Triad area of NC (Winston-Salem, Greensboro, and High Point) made a big gamble: instead of building new minor-league stadiums, why not try to lure a major-league club with a new stadium? They came up with a plan for a $210 million stadium, one situated at the Interstate 40-Interstate 40 Business interchange in between Guilford and Forsyth County. This site was under dispute leading up to the referendum, but the general area of the site would have been in the area highlight below. 1 Don Beaver, a North Carolina businessman (and then-owner of the Charlotte Knights), would have paid for a third of the stadium, with the other two-thirds coming from taxpayers in Guilford and Forsyth County through a $0.50 tax on baseball tickets and a 1% tax on prepared foods. Of course, this tax proved unpopular, with restaurateurs and citizens organizing Citizens Against Unfair Taxes (spending $33,000 on their campaign, compared to the $899,000 spent by the “Say Yes Baseball” campaign).2 Beaver also entered into negotiations to buy the Twins from Carl Pohlad, who was having financial problems with the Twins. He reported that he’d lost roughly $26 million since 1994 (over half of his reported losses since 1984), while team revenue was 40% below league average ($70 million) at $42 million. He had been trying for some time to extort the Minnesota Legislature to buy him a new venue to replace the barely 15-year-old Metrodome (I get that it was a crummy stadium, but still!), to no avail. However, he saw an opportunity with Don Beaver to put pressure on the state government. Pohlad signed a letter of intent on October 3, 1997, to sell the team to Beaver for $150 million, contingent on the Twins failing to get a stadium deal in Minnesota and the stadium tax measure passing.3 Unfortunately for Beaver, the Guilford and Forsyth County voters had different ideas. The May 5, 1998 referendum for the taxes failed hard. The two-county election ended with “no” defeating “yes” by 96,433 to 55,262 votes. The votes were 59% to 41% in Forsyth and 67% to 33% in Guilford. While Beaver investigated a stadium opportunity in Charlotte, talks stalled out. The North Carolina effort was so defeated, Beaver admitted that Charlotte had no interest in the Expos’ relocation.4 Pohlad and his successors, who reportedly had little interest in North Carolina, continued in their pursuit of a Minnesota stadium (which included failed public ventures and a threat to contract the team that fell flat), eventually getting Target Field in 2010.5 Of course, this plan was a horrible idea. Quotes from the period showed concern from residents about traffic near the exurban complex. I’d say that @sc49erfan15 summed up the problem here: Even if the vote went the other way, the results would still be terrible. You can best sum up what happened with this over-referenced moment from Fred Ottman’s wrestling career: The voters should be commended for refusing to pay for two-thirds of Beaver’s stadium. However, what if the Guilford and Forsyth County voters went the other way and Pohlad wasn’t bluffing? I figured that the name should stay, with the identifier of “Carolina.” The titual Twins would be each of the Carolinas. Navy and red would also remain with the addition of flesh/tan for outlines and the twin men (taken from the Twins’ 1972 roundel alternate). Part One - Dome-style Design The first approach is an attempt to merge the Metrodome era look with the new setting, while incorporating pieces of the 2010 typeface cleanup. The primary is a direct riff on the ‘87-’09 design, while the secondary incorporates both twins representing their respective states (modified versions of Wikipedia's North/South Carolina state outlines), a three-pointed star for the Triad, and the cap logo. The insignias include a “C-underline” and an “NCSC” design (a localized version of the “TC”). Rockwell Bold is the lettering font. EDIT: I've adjusted the secondary and insignia logos, per C&C by @sc49erfan15, @coco1997, and @BellaSpurs. The original is here. The uniforms feature a new “Carolina” wordmark, with the secondary on the home uniform and the primary on the road. The big change from the Twins’ 1987-2009 uniforms is that the NoB’s are direct-sewn and red with navy outlines. The “NCSC” is on the socks. EDIT: The original is here, since I replaced the "NCSC," the home sleeve patch, and the cap insignia. The alternates include a navy top and a red-billed “NCSC” cap, along with a fauxback. This one uses the janky 1960s “Twins” script with an all-navy “NCSC” cap and the secondary as a patch. EDIT: The "NCSC" is now a "C" on the red-billed cap, while the new "C" replaces the old one. The "C" from the second part is now on the throwback. The original is here. The jacket features the home wordmark, the “C-underline” on the back, and white and red stripes on the trim. EDIT: The original is here. Part Two - A 1960s Revival, with contrast! The second approach modernizes the 1960s Twins set (what the 2010 Twins should have done) with a contrasting color style (inspired by the first secondary logo). The primary places the other secondary in a roundel, along with the team script (which I debuted in the current MLB thread on the Sports Logos section - using the 1959-60 Washington Senators’ tail design). The secondary/insignia features the “C” from my custom “TC.” A roundel with the “C” and a red border form the tertiary. EDIT: I've simplified the primary, per @BellaSpurs and @sc49erfan15's suggestions. The map logo is now the tertiary. The original is right here. The uniforms follow my Project 32 Twins concept, except for a few key tweaks. The most notable among these is that the front numbers, cap logos, and sock stripes are dominantly red with navy or white outlines. I figured that it gave the uniforms a bit more “punch.” The primary is a sleeve patch for both sets. EDIT: The tertiary is on the home uniform, while the primary resides on the road jersey's sleeve. The original is in here. The alternates also develop the co-dominance approach by alternating each Friday. The red jersey includes a matching cap, while the navy jersey features white front numbers (for contrast as a lighter element). EDIT: The patches have been updated to match the new set, with a recolored tertiary. The original is here. The jacket now has red sleeves and the “Carolina” script. EDIT: The primary is on the sleeve, while the tertiary is on the back. The original is here. This move would have been an utter boondoggle had the voters and team gone through with it. While the Twins could have had some fantastic looks there, it’s for the best that it didn’t happen. C+C is appreciated, as always!

    AL CENTRAL MINNESOTA TWINS This is may not be the most revolutionary Twins concept but I decided on two points regarding the Twins aesthetic: 1. the home uniforms look best with navy blue lettering and 2. something was needed to add warmth to the look with the move to Target field. The cream alternates demonstrated both of these points perfectly. They looked better than any other look worn outdoors since the move out of the Metrodome. That being said, I felt it was too obvious to repeat the cream based home uniforms (and frankly its already been done to perfection elsewhere on these boards). So I opted for red pinstripes as the way to add some much needed warmth to the home look. It also blends well with a red softball top. For the road design, I opted to reinstate the pinstripes as it had been the only distinctive look for them on the road. Thanks to @MJD7 for lending me the updated "Minnesota" script based on the modernized letters. C&C as always. Enjoy!

    For the Milwaukee brewers, I went in a different direction and didn't go with many options. Instead every uniform is a pullover, and I scrapped a grey road uniform. Decided on the classic powder blue to complaint the lighter blue and yellow color scheme.

    Next up, the Oakland Athletics, and a the return of a brighter green. The uniforms mostly stay intact other than a switch to a brighter green, with the exception of sleeve patch colorways. What makes this interesting are the fauxback options that include one of the major college trends.. colored pants. Just like the old A's ,the fauxbacks take a vest form with the original A logo on the chest. Expect a lot more colored pants and pullovers to come...

    Something I was thinking about the other day... something that I took as given back when I was a kid in the 70s. Any time a new sports team is added to a league (during expansion, particularly, but also sometimes as part of a joint relocation/rebranding) that team would almost ALWAYS have a new original color scheme that was not used in the league yet. At the time, I almost thought ( in my 12 year old head) that it was a kind of unwritten rule, as who wants to have the same color scheme as another team in the league? I sure know that when I was designing logos for whole leagues when I was a kid, it was KEY that no team shared the same color scheme. Of course, back in the those days, most teams only had a two-color scheme (with white, of course, as an understood uni color option) Looking back on it, it's amazing to me how far back this trend goes, and how far it generally continued and continues to this day. A brief recap and rewind, only using new expansion teams and relocation rebrands (no "rebrands in place"): NFL: 2002 - Houston Texans - Navy Blue and Red -- very similar to Patriots, but without silver. Only sort of original to NFL. 1997 - Tennessee Titans - Two-tone blue with red and gray -- Original to NFL and major league sports.. 1996 - Baltimore Ravens - Purple, Black and old gold -- Original to NFL and major league sports 1995 - Carolina Panthers - Black, Silver and Carolina Blue - Original to NFL; very close to Orlando Magic and Tampa Bay Lightning. 1995 - Jacksonville Jaguars - Teal, Black and Old Gold - Original to NFL and major league sports. 1976 - Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Orange, white and red - Original to NFL and major league sports. 1976 - Seattle Seahawks - Blue, Green and Silver - Original to NFL, addition of silver made it slightly different from Vancouver Canucks at the time. 1968 - Cincinnati Bengals - Black and Orange -- Original to NFL; used of course before by Orioles and MLB Giants. 1967 - New Orleans Saints - Black and Old Gold -- Original to NFL and major league sports. 1966 - Miami Dolphins - Aqua and Coral -- Original to NFL and major league sports. 1966 - Atlanta Falcons - Red, black (and at the time hint of old gold) -- Slight similarity to NFL St. Louis Cardinals, who only had a hint of black and for the most part back then were a red and white team. So, Original to NFL ( especially with the trace of gold). 1960 - Minnesota Vikings -- Purple and gold/yellow - Original to NFL. 1960 - Dallas Cowboys - Royal Blue and white (at the time) - NOT original to NFL. NBA: 2008 - Oklahoma City Thunder -- Two tones of blue, orange and yellow - Original to NBA and major league sports (though sort of close to NHL Atlanta Thrashers) 2004 - Charlotte Bobcats -- Orange, two tones of blue, gray - Original to NBA and major league sports. 1995 - Vancouver Grizzlies - Turquoise, bronze, red - Original to NBA and major league sports. 1995 - Toronto Raptors - Purple, Red, Black, & Silver - Original to NBA and major league sports 1989 - Orlando Magic - Blue, Black and Silver - Original to NBA and major league sports (at the time, same color scheme was essentially taken up by Tampa Bay Lightning a few years later). 1989 - Minnesota Timberwolves - Blue, Green and Silver - Original to NBA (Seattle Seahawks had same color scheme in NFL at the time). 1988 - Miami Heat - Black, Red, Orange, Yellow - Original to NBA 1988 - Charlotte Hornets - Teal, Purple (and a few other trace colors) - Original to NBA and major league sports. 1980 - Dallas Mavericks - Green and Blue - Original to NBA. 1978 - San Diego Clippers - Sky blue and burnt orange - Original to NBA and major league sports. 1974 - New Orleans Jazz - Purple, Gold and Green - Original to NBA and major league sports. NHL: 2018 - Vegas Golden Knights - Steel gray, gold, red, black -Original to NBA and major league sports 2011 - Winnipeg Jets II -Two shades of blue, red, silver - Original to NHL (very similar to NHL Tennessee Titans) 2000 - Columbus Blue Jackets - Blue, Red, Silver, Electric Green - Original to NHL (Electric Green was the difference) 2000 - Minnesota Wild - Forest Green, Red, Gold, Wheat - Original to NHL and major league sports. 1999 - Atlanta Thrashers - Navy, Light Blue, Red, Copper, Gold, White - Original to NHL and major league sports. 1998 - Nashville Predators - Dark Blue, Gold, Silver - Original to NHL and major league sports. 1997 - Carolina Hurricanes - Red, Black, Silver - NOT original to NHL. Pretty much same colors as Buffalo Sabres (at the time). 1996 - Phoenix Coyotes - Black, Brick Red, Hunter Green, Sand Sienna, Purple. Original to NHL and major league sports. 1995 - Colorado Avalanche - Burgundy, Light (steel) blue, Silver - Original to NHL and major league sports. 1993 - Florida Panthers - Red, Navy, Metallic Gold & Yellow - Original to NHL and major league sports. 1993 - Anaheim Mighty Ducks - eggplant, Jade, Sliver and White - Original to NHL and major league sports. 1992 - Tampa Bay Lightning - Black, Blue and Silver - Original to the NHL. 1992 - Ottawa Senators - Red, Black and Metallic Gold - Original to NHL. 1991 - San Jose Sharks - Teal, Gray, Black - Original to NHL and major league sports. MLB: 2005 - Washington Nationals - Red, Blue, hint of gold - Sort of original to MLB, just because of the presence of the gold. 1995 - Tampa Bay Devil Rays - Black, Purple, with traces of yellow and green (spectrum) - - Original to MLB and major league sports 1995 - Arizona Diamond Backs - Purple,Turquoise, Copper, Black - Original to MLB and major league sports 1993 - Colorado Rockies - Black, Purple, Silver - Original to MLB and major league sports. 1993 - Florida Marlins - Teal, Black, Silver - Original to MLB, but very similar to San Jose Sharks from a few years earlier. 1977 - Toronto Blue Jays - Royal Blue and Light blue with a hint of red. Original to MLB 1977 - Seattle Mariners - Blue and Gold/Yellow - NOT original to MLB. 1972 - Texas Rangers - Red & Blue -- NOT original to MLB. 1969 - San Diego Padres - Brown and gold/yellow - - Original to MLB and major league sports. 1969 - Montreal Expos - Red & Blue - NOT original to MLB. 1969 - Kansas City Royals - Royal Blue & White - NOT original to MLB. 1969 - Seattle Pilots - Blue and Yellow - Original to MLB (at the time) Not surprisingly, baseball with its traditionalist nature seems to be the least to adhere to the "new team, new colors" viewpoint. Comments, observations and discussion welcomed.

    Because they previously had zero black across their branding and then suddenly added it when it became a trendy color - that's the definition of BFBS. It's a board discussing uniform and logo details. If the Dodgers added a black outline to their wordmark and numbers and just a little bit of black piping to the pants, it would stick out. I don't really feel one way or another about those Jets uniforms...but that's why people flip out.

    SKC is in all light blue, and Colorado is in their traditional burgundy/light blue set, meaning both teams are wearing light blue shorts (though slightly different shades). Sporting KC's other option is all black, and I can't think that provides significantly more contrast to the dark Colorado set. I don't have much of a point here, other than to say maybe there is a need for third kits in MLS.

    Amazing home opener for FC Cincinnati. Great first MLS win and a clean sheet to boot. @DG_Now is right. That turf looked awful though. Its a new surface that is supposed to be up to par with the other turf surfaces in the league but it looked like there was way to much fill. Granted it was the first game played on it so hopefully they will correct it when Philly comes to town in a couple weeks.

    These pics can be "yuck", but the point is suggesting that a Kelly green and black scheme makes them look like they're copying another team makes no sense. A new set using this color scheme could look great on them, tie into their history, and still be a unique look in the NFL.

    Here's what I would love to see for future and potential expansion teams: NHL: Seattle: Unique shade of blue, maybe like the old Seahawks' steel blue, and lime green. Either that, or navy and lime green. MLB: Portland: Red and black, or red and green. Vegas: Dark gray and gold. Maybe with black trim. Similar to the Golden Knights. Charlotte: Carolina blue and black or dark gray. Montreal: Will most likely be another blue and red scheme, which would be brutal.

    It seems to me like most teams today want to wear white, black, and grey, nothing else, regardless of their actual colors. This is especially prominent in the NBA and in college sports. Of course, this isn't the same topic as how a team goes about choosing its initial branding.

    Thanks! That's my plan, to end with the Seattle Pilots with two different takes. Same. Thanks! I totally see where you're coming from, but I wanted to do enough to separate them from the White Sox. The line I used in the Seattle concept was way too wimpy. Thank you! Thanks. As for the Carolina Twins, look no further than the next post! Thanks! Thank you! I'm rather fond of how the "SG" turned out. I'm also surprised that the Toronto Giants' "G" never surfaced beyond this one photo. You'd think at least a few of them were made, eventually becoming a Hat Club exclusive or something like that. I found that in The Washington Post's article about the move, but wrote it off due to the interviewees maintaining that "Nationals" was the most likely name. It'd be an interesting identity to evolve, especially if there was a mid-'90s "aggressive Panda." I found zero evidence of this. Anyway, the Carolina Twins are going up now!

    Would make sense for the Jets to wear the blue uniforms they wore during the 1980s (Hawerchuk days) and the Flames wearing the white throwback 1980s uniforms. Old Smythe Division memories. Though would love to see the Jets wear the royal blue version on the last WHA uniforms. Not only because that uniform looked great, but a subtle nod to the WHL's Regina Pats, who wore that similar design for many years.

    Next up, here comes the Tribe! The main striping for the set is based on the sock stripe which has been popularized in recent years, as well as old Cleveland BP jerseys. I figured that by filling in the middle stripes, the Adidas three-stripe comparisons would be diminished a little bit. The number font is based on Tribe Type, which is the font used in Cleveland's style guide. The color distributions on the home & road are flipped, with the away wordmark based off of the very arched 1920 wordmark. The away has a *slight* navy blue tint to it. I decided to keep the mainly red accessories for the home uniform, as that's a look Cleveland really could (and in my opinion, should) own. The main cap is basically the same as what Cleveland has decided to go with this year, just with a white outline for better readability. I flipped the colors of the wordmark on the red alternate for the same reasons. The navy alternate most explicitly references the BP jersey (while also referencing some of Cleveland's original uniforms), with the block C replacing Chief Wahoo. The BP cap is based on Cleveland's earliest caps. The Turn Back the Clock uniform is essentially a mix of Cleveland's off-white home alternate that was worn in the 2000's and some of the earliest Cleveland uniforms. For Cleveland's Part II, I could have gone with brown & red (I do have set prepared with that color scheme, if anyone's interested) which has been tried before, but I wanted to go in a bit of a different direction this time. Although it is still blue & red, maroon & navy would be a scheme that has not been tried before and would fit Cleveland nicely with the Cavaliers. Maroon replaces red in all instances, naturally creating a darker, more old-time feel to the set. I think Cleveland can afford to be simple with their logos, and yet with a few updates to striping and color distribution still have a classic set. I'd love to hear what you all think!

    So I rolled along and made a final version of everything. I cleaned up the logos and scripts from pages 4 and 5. I ended up going with font A from page 4. I don’t usually like italic numbers or completely round fonts, and font B was both of those things, so as much as I tried to like it to get some more blue on the jerseys, I just couldn’t get myself to like the font. So I went with the font based of the primary logo. Hats: Two hats, but both are similar. Both have black crowns with the fish-only logo, but one has a blue bill and button, the other swaps in pink. Jerseys: A whopping 5 jerseys, in white, gray, blue, pink, and black. The white and pink jerseys have the Marlins script, the gray and black jerseys have the Miami script, and the blue jersey has Miami, swapping pink and blue for better contrast. On the sleeves, the jerseys have a striping pattern that replicates the scripts, going thin black-thick blue-thin black-medium pink-thin black, with blue and pink swapped on the blue jersey. Pants: Three pairs, white, gray, and blue. All pairs have striping down the side matching the jerseys and belts are colored to match the socks, which come in blue, pink, and black. Rules: Ah yes, rules for the uniforms. The bill of the caps should match the socks/undershirts unless black socks are being worn (because there isn't a solid black cap). While black socks and undershirts are an option, they should be avoided. Ideally, blue would be the most common choice, with pink a close second, and black being worn only when necessary, such as with the blue pants or black jerseys. All three colored jerseys can be worn at home with white pants, and the blue and black jerseys can be worn on the road, with blue and gray pants, respectively. Pink jerseys stay at home. This is the first time I've done this with baseball, normally I stick to football concepts, so I kinda improvised the presentation as I went along. Hopefully it isn't too bad to even look at. Here's the final product: Personally, I like how the neon "light bulbs" pop off the black backgrounds, but if all I wanted was my opinion, I wouldn't be posting them here. What do you guys think? Compared to the real Marlins redesign, upgrade, downgrade, flat? Let me know!

    I agree. Not only is it high school, but it is well done. And not only well done, but "seen through". It's awesome to see a series that doesn't fall off the map after 2 concepts and updates as quick as you do and maintains quality. You're design eye is great in these, you make sure that there is a reason graphically or historically to every change. It's a fantastic series.

    Too bad the Lightning don't look something like this already incase they go onto win the cup. I still think they need way more black in their identity. That jersey could really pop, not to mention be unique again.

    I love the idea of a black home jersey for the Lighting, and I like the idea of silver as their “light” color, but I neeeeed some blue.
