  1. While I'm sure that's always been the case, my 40+ year old brain is screaming that this is a sports logo/uniform example of the Mandela Effect...
  2. It's probably a sign of my age, but the first thing I thought of when I saw the new logo was this...
  3. I love what you did with the interlocking SG logo! Exactly what I had hoped to see. And then the updated Toronto Giants "G" looks great, too. I never noticed that little serif at the bottom before. It looks out of place, but it's there, plain as day.
  4. Really love the crazy history regarding the failed ARCO stadium. From a design standpoint, any thoughts on an interlocking SG instead of SF?
  5. Almost... they need to have a throwback to the home version of these. Of which a reproduction seems to be non-existent in a legitimate format...
  6. The A's to Portland isn't just a recent "development". They've been tied to speculative relocations for at least 15 years. Certainly, the Expos were the focus of the group(s) trying to bring MLB to Portland, but the A's came up as well. We know that their stadium woes aren't new, either. I recall doing a Portland A's concept way back when, although I doubt I posted it here. It was pretty shoddy execution, but my idea was taking the A's cap logo, and replacing the apostrophe with the rosebud and stem from the Portland Rockies cap: Feel free to snag or modify that concept for your Portland A's!
  7. Maybe it's just me, but is anyone else getting a 2004 San Diego Padres vibe for the number font? http://www.sportslogos.net/logos/view/fo674aaqqelsf1f7qhjecmvve/San_Diego_Padres/2004/Road_Uniform
  8. Maybe it's just me, but this particular location just makes it look like the Marlins are randomly vandalizing people's homes...
  9. I truly have loved every moment of this concept series. You have a great eye, and you really are grasping the possibilities of the alternate realities. I absolutely loved the BiG logo being reimagined for the Milwaukee Braves. Genius!! Now, as a Portland sports history enthusiast, I'm excited to see what happens in your timelines. Seeing what you have done with the various incarnations of the Athletics, and how they have mixed in prior franchises per each city, I can't help but wonder if we see that in Portland...? Say, a PCL reference that heavily borrowed a design element from a Missouri franchise? I hate to say much more without a spoiler, but... Elephants on the bat??
  10. First thing that comes to mind, getting back to the core of this topic, would be Portland's dual stripe jersey sash.
  11. Been letting this sit for a couple days, and I've scrolled through all of the comments... I get that the purple jersey has been the hot topic, but, nothing about the solid stripe on the back of the neck trim? What is that all about? Is it so that it ties the aesthetic to the purple jersey? That's as big an eyesore as the side panels, if you ask me. Furthermore, the fact that these jerseys haven't been draped in Nike-speak, unlike other reveals, kinda leaves me dumbfounded.
  12. I missed the name because I was distracted by the M-based camo pattern around the court... yikes!
  13. I am having the same issues on mobile, and pop ups, and redirects everywhere. It's virtually unusable. And I am also getting the same Amazon spinning wheel hijack thingy...
  14. "To do then, now, would be retro. To do then then, was very now-tro."
