  1. My alma mater did well. Solved most of the problems they previously had.
  2. So has anyone noticed that navy jersey on mlbshop.com for the Yankees is being priced as an official alt?
  3. Interestingly enough, the chain stitching seems to really make me wonder about that.
  4. Hey, what font are you using? I would love to use it for a concept
  5. If you want to look at what the Yankees would do. look no further than the Tigers.
  6. It is indeed Chinese. Good thing for me, it lasts longer this way. I tend to buy a size bigger so that they last longer when they do shrink
  7. I scored a red Expos hat from Lids the other day and for a 7 3/4 it seemed like a 7 5/8. Also got the teal Marlins one as well.
  8. The league offices were abolished in 1999. The Leagues themselves are still in existence.
  9. David was a LOT of things, suffering from dementia was not one of them.
  10. Cheapest i've gotten an authentic for was for 10 on ebay. (Strasburg rookie edition and a Tigers Prince Fielder) I just got lucky

    Hey guys, I appreciate the feedback, the next round is going to be great. jrcollis, that gray is actually the RGB value of Fenway Green.

    I love the Braves branding, but i figured I would explore the Home of the Braves part a bit more, this is what i came up with. Cleveland i didn't like so much, as I wanted to get rid of all Native American imagery. Arizona was a mashup of uniform scripts and that red is actually a dark copper that i saw on a patch of a jersey that I have for them

    Here's my take on some primary logos for MLB. Some are mashups, tweaks and an overhaul.
  16. Anyone who owns or has ever owned a set of Yankee pinstripes knows those pinstripes are made unlike any other pinstripe set currently in use. Come to think of it, has any Chicago franchise overhauled its logo? Other than slight updates or even the introduction of a new secondary logo, all identities have remained virtually the same. The White Sox have plenty of times...
  17. Cheap owners content with re-patching used White Sox jerseys. Sadly, I fear their current look will never change. Not necessarily. Anyone who has ever seen an authentic Rockies jersey up close knows that those pinstripes have always been purple. If the Rockies used more purple at home from the start, they wouldn't have this sentiment hanging over their heads.
  18. Hey, anyone who has a spare gray Expos jersey they would like to get rid of, PM me
  19. Doubt it would happen for similar reasons to the Angels. The "larger" your name, the more you can (theoretically) appeal to a wider audience. Something like the Queens Mets would pigeon-hole them. Of course, didn't stop the Dodgers or the Nets.When the Brooklyn National League team was founded, Brooklyn was a separate city. Now it is a section of New York City. Something like "Flushing Mets" would be terrible. Neither Brooklyn nor any other section of any city (such as Hollywood, for example) should be the locality name of a major-league team.I never thought that a major-league team would take a name of a section of a city nowadays; but the Nets proved me wrong. I believe that this was a mistake, as it limits their appeal in their home market. And that name really annoys me as a New Yorker. Even though I was born in Brooklyn and have lived for nearly 30 years a few blocks from the Brooklyn/Queens border, my attachment is to New York City, not to any borough. So, in order to root for that team, I have to overlook the name -- and also the bland uniforms, of course. Ironically, I was less uncomfortable with the name "New Jersey Nets" than I am with the current name. (Though the old name is not without problems, as mentioned below.) I also like the Nets' New Jersey uniforms a lot more than the current uni. So that team's move into my city has actually reduced my emotional connection with it. State names as locality names are a different issue. When the state has only one major metropolitan area, the use of a state name is tolerable, as the teams really do represent the whole state. This accounts for Minnesota, Arizona, and Colorado. Still, the city names Minneapolis (sorry, St. Paul, but Minneapolis is the recognisable one), Phoenix, and Denver would be preferable in those cases. Note that the Thunder choose not the state name but the city name, despite the fact that they play in the state's only really large city, and that they are the state's only NBA team. All other uses of a state name are problematic. For New Jersey, its biggest cities are suburbs of New York; and the names of the teams located there should reflect that. Likewise, the name of any major-league team that might play Camden should reflect the fact that that city is a Philadelphia suburb. For the states with multiple big cities, the use of the state name is very unfortunate, and really should be avoided. The change from "Florida Marlins" to "Miami Marlins" is to be applauded for this reason. I get that "Texas Rangers" was already a phrase long before the baseball team existed. But this does not make it an appropriate name for a team located in one city in a huge state. And alliteration doesn't justify "Tennesse Titans"; they should be the "Nashville somethings". Similarly, while "California Angels" is the name that we grew up with, and which therefore sounds "right", that name is untenable in such a big state with many diverse cities. So it seems clear to me that "Los Angeles Angels" is the only appropriate name.Great take. I agree about most of this, except for the Titans. They had to do so because of the stadium deal they made with the state of TN for additional funding. The two conditions that were made were that they would use the name "Tennessee" and they would allow Tennessee State Univ. to play their home games there.
  20. The five bull heads are tradition for the Bulls, who I think have been using it for about 30 years. It's as iconic as Boston's floor.
