    I like a lot of the logos from the early 90s. My signature is proof of that (and a representation of my favorite teams).

  1. When it comes to Florida's Big Three schools (UF, UM, and FSU) classic is the way to go. There was never a need to mess with it. Miami went back to what they should have always had, and FSU should do the same. You want fun, dynamic uniforms? That's left for UCF, USF, FAU, and FIU.
  2. I like it. I really think the Chargers nailed it. The only tweak I'd suggest is filling in the bolts on the navy uniform to be white (or yellow like the light blue), but that's about it (granted, I get it's color rush so they have to do something different).
  3. I don't hate what they did. The idea was there, but it wasn't executed to completion IMO. There's elements of the pre-Flying Elvis and modern-era looks, but they just threw them together. I would have liked to see a red alternate like above. The number font would work with this as a semi-throwback (can't use the white helmet). I would have liked to see them keep the silver pants (why make mono-color the primary look), and then also bring in white pants (maybe to go with the red shirts I suggested, but honestly they'd go with any look). I also agree with the above suggestion of moving the numbers to the sleeves and ditching the logo.
  5. Might have to add QATAR across the chest very soon: https://www.miaminewtimes.com/news/inter-miami-soccer-fans-indignant-over-potential-team-sponsorship-with-qatar-11446017
  6. Miami Dolphins 80s and 90s two-tone wordmark is missing. Currently only the single-color wordmark is listed.
  7. I think it's best to go with Reggie White #92. Second choice would be Sterling Sharpe #84. I already have a Favre from 2003 and a Rodgers from 2010.
  8. I own a blank 1993 Green Bay Packers jersey that I want to get lettered. However, in 1993 Green Bay used screen printing instead of sewn-on tackle twill. I am curious as to if anyone knows of a company that can apply the lettering in the same way as back then.
  9. They almost nailed it. I'd have made one little tweak...getting rid of the lines in his mane...
  10. Are Outback and Cotton Bowl ones coming? =)
  11. I don't post on here very often anymore, but I recently had a thought that I believed other board members may share. I happen to have more than one favorite team in each sport, and this is primarily because I didn't grow up in just one place. There have been star players who have played for both of my favorite teams, but this doesn't happen often. I'll post those below. My question is, how many other board members also have had star athletes or favorite players whom have donned uniforms of both of your favorite teams? Gary Sheffield - Marlins/Brewers Terrell Buckley - Packers/Dolphins Ray Allen - Bucks/Heat
  12. The issue has finally been resolved...sort of. After leaving a message, I finally spoke to someone at IceJerseys.com back in January. The rep said if I sent the jersey back with pictures of the correct font, he believed they could fix the error. I sent it back, and four weeks later I received a full refund. I figured this was just an initial refund, and they'd re-charge me once the new jersey was completed. Waited...and waited....finally I called today, and left another message. They called me back (much more timely this time), and I spoke to a new rep. He told me that the old rep had been let go because he wasn't calling back their clients, and he apologized. So, that is why I hadn't heard from anyone. I was also told I was refunded the full price of the jersey because they no longer had my Whalers jersey in size Medium in stock. They might get more by next Christmas. The rep apologized on behalf of the company for jerking me around, and he said that the staff was aware that the Whalers font was incorrect on my original purchase. He assumed someone mistakenly overlooked it. Due to the fact that he felt there was a series of "dropped the ball moments" leading to my experience, IceJerseys.com gave me a $40 credit for the next time I want to buy something from them. So...right now I have nothing. However, hopefully if they get more of those jerseys in stock, I'll get a correct one for $40 less.
  13. You're incorrect on a few assumptions. First, I posted it to Twitter, at them, as a form of notification. This day and age, companies tend to respond to that faster. I've heard nothing back, and will try e-mail today. Second, "an issue for the boards to fix?" I hope you really didn't think I believed anyone on these boards could help me. That was never the purpose. Finally, I'm not keeping this jersey. PERIOD. I wouldn't want a jersey with incorrect font, so it's going back to IceJerseys, going on eBay, or being given to Goodwill with the tags still on it. The purpose is that the CCSLC is a community based on our love for all things logos, uniforms, fonts, graphics, and anything aesthetic. as related to sports. This is a community that has entire threads devoted to calling out fakes being sold on eBay, calling out "wardrobe malfunctions" if a number falls off of a player during a game, in-game name misspellings, and making sure that team colors are no lighter or darker than they should be. Therefore, when I received a jersey from a reputable supplier that was less than perfect, despite a $200+ price tag, I immediately figured this group of people are the EXACT group of people with whom to share the font gaffe with. I'm actually quite surprised that some people would take this post to be negative in any way whatsoever.
