  1. I think we take for granted how flawlessly a team worked their stadium into a logo. How many other examples are there of that?
  2. I'll never understand why anyone would want all 30 teams to look the same. The goal should be to have 30 well-designed brands that are unique and timeless. This means some teams wearing "non-traditional" jersey cuts—be that pullovers, vests, etc. The Yankees should never deviate from the classic pinstriped home uniforms. But the Athletics should embrace their unique brand and wear the yellow vests and pants as the road uniform full time. The Cardinals should never ditch the birds-on-bat mark. But the Astros should incorporate the rainbow guts design into their uniforms somehow. Perhaps a team like Toronto should wear pullovers full time. Give me 30 unique visual identities, not 30 sets of white jerseys with the team nickname in script and gray jerseys with the city name in arched block.
  3. One thing I've never really gotten a good sense of - is Oakland even a good MLB market to begin with? I don't doubt that the Bay Area in general is capable of hosting two teams, but I get the vibe that Oakland is kind of just an extension of San Francisco in a way. I didn't pay too much attention when I was there, but going from SF to Oakland seemed like going to a suburb of SF. That's not to say Oakland isn't it's own city, but it felt more like how the Rays play in St Pete as opposed to Tampa proper because that's where the stadium is. There seems to be a good deal of civic pride in Oakland (or at least territorial pride of some sort), but is the city of Oakland itself a worthy MLB market? Is it distinct from the rest of the Bay Area? If the Athletics had been in San Jose all this time would that satisfy the Bay Area market? And if the team leaves the Bay Area completely, will the market feel the need for another team? I don't ask these questions so much out of reality (I know they're not moving to SJ), but more out of curiosity about the market. Like, has it been worth trying to keep the team there this long in the first place?
  4. These are the Field of Dreams game caps:
  5. I used to think this was a silly take but I've come to agree completely. The A by itself is a great mark and looks more balanced without the 's.
  6. The blue Phillies cap has always been the darker shade of blue.
  7. I think the argument against ads on sports uniforms is less of a logical or practical one (though there are valid points to be made) and more about the larger concept of losing an era in which sports were fun and enjoyable instead of all about the money. That era ended years ago, but the sacred space of the sports uniform was sort of the last holdout.
  8. That's disgusting. Worst World Series logo of all time.
  9. I adjusted the brightness of the photo to give us a better look at the colors:
  10. I see it as a section of track, seen from the side view. Kind of an odd way to render it in my opinion.
  11. They desperately need a white outline. If we're following the logo design, the numbers should either be green or blue with a white stroke.
  12. Is it just me or does that red/orange section look like an added material on the helmet? It appears to be raised a bit from the white part.
  13. I've found that when it says a patch isn't intended for use on a jersey (most of the commemorative ones seem to be made as collectibles now, which seems silly), there is a hard backing attached. I've been able to sew through the hard backing, but you'll need to commit to breaking a few needles. I've successfully melted off the backing with an iron, but I wouldn't exactly recommend this tactic unless you're very confident. Patch Collection is a solid source.
  14. Good. Hopefully all other teams across the other leagues follow. Fanatics is garbage.
