  1. Hello again, Shadojoker! I took a little time off... and It's good to be back. Talk to you soon : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F_Pm0Kq5jok&list=UUt0-ujML-kOtNcbhItIvW3Q
  2. Nono they care about basketball but just not the Bucks....like 95% of the state outside of Milwaukee not a comment about them being bad, just a comment on how the NBA doesn't attract most people here in Wisco. MOD EDIT MOD EDIT MOD EDIT Thanks Elwood. Sorry that you can't accept the fact that the Bucks are not a major team in this state, Elwood. Maybe If you weren't in Japan, Elwood, you'd see this. Bucks are nowhere near the level of the Brewers or badgers (football or basketball), and we all know the Packs in a whole different stratosphere. There's no need for stupid links, it's a known fact. Sure people are aware of the bucks but let's be real here, Elwood. Your head is in the clouds if anyone thinks the bucks are a major player on the Wisconsin sports scene. Even Marquette is way ahead of them in the spectrum. Even high school bball is ahead of them.MOD EDIT I have a "stupid" link for you, espnboy13. It's here: http://forums.realgm.com/boards/viewforum.php?f=21 You're more than welcome to join us. We have a Bucks insider there. And I'll tell you one thing, there are people reading these forums... like Bucks reps... Brewers reps... Packers reps... Badgers reps... Marquette reps... etc... I don't get what your link represents? So there's a forum of bucks fans; doesn't mean that the Bucks are important here. Look, I'm not here to bash on the Bucks. I hope they go back to the irish rainbows and I hope they turn into a good team with Jabari and Greek Freak and Kidd and the new owners, but all I'm saying is they just flat out have a minimal fan base in Wisconsin outside of Milwaukee. I can't provide a link, but thats just a common known fact. My reasoning is I've lived in Northeastern Wisconsin my whole life, with one side of family all in Milwaukee and one side all in Green Bay. And I love basketball, its my favorite sport behind football-Played it my whole life and watch as much of it as I can. But if someone took 100 Wisconsinites and said "Hey, heres a TV with the Bucks on, or heres a TV with a high school basketball game," I'm confident 90% of the people would watch High School. Sorry that offends you. The Bucks are not near the top of the sports food chain in this state Also, who cares if theres reps from teams here? They know where they all stand in fan base. Don't think they care what the Seasheperd and a 22 year old college student think about them. Your corner of the world does not represent Bucks fan base. I'm actually working right now, it's 12:30 pm in Japan. If you would like to discuss your thoughts and ideas with fellow Wisconsinites, I urge you to join RealGM Bucks, the largest fan forum of the Bucks in the entire world. Good luck with school.

How old are you, espnboy13, 13? Oh, you're 21 years old... Perhaps it's time for you to do a little growing... Happy 22nd Birthday in about a month, espnboy13! Cut the personal attacks and actually discuss the statements he's making. Personal attacks? A question followed by two facts.

  5. Making exact duplicates of older logos would be a great service to the community! Would you be willing to start with these St. Louis Cardinals historical "birds on the bat" logos, noting the differences in the evolution of the birds on the bat design over the years? The version on the Cardinals' page on the main site that is labelled as "1924 - 1948" should actually be 1936 - 1948; and the one that is labelled "1957 - 1997" should actually be 1966 - 1997. If you can do the other birds on the bat logos shown on this resource (other than the 1951 - 1955 and the 1966 and later logos on the sheet below, which are already on the main site), that would be great: Thanks in advance for your willingness to make these older logos! Hi, I sent this in to UniWatch last year as apart of the article we published, and the artist (on behalf of the St. Louis Cardinals) would appreciate that you do not try and duplicate these graphics, as they are already digitized, and those digitized versions have been deemed authentic. All other St. Louis Cardinals fan created graphics are not authentic and for obvious reasons should not be trusted. Thank you for your understanding. Hello, who are these "I", "we", and "artist" you speak of? Links please. What's UniWatch? What article are you speaking of? Where was it published? Links please. What happens when 'amateurs' 'duplicate' sports graphics, or any graphics for that matter? Where can we see these authentic digitized graphics? Who deems digitized versions as authentic? Okay, so we, amateurs, shouldn't 'trust' any concepts / graphics / 'duplicates' created by other amateurs? Where do you draw the line between duplicates and concepts? Where do we draw the line between 'pro' and 'amateur'? Links please, if you should have any, for us to better understand, what you are implying with your very first post. Is that what you're saying here? What happens when non St. Louis Cardinals fans / amateur artists 'duplicate' / create concepts? What are these obvious reasons you speak of? What do you mean by 'trust'? Any more links you can help us understand what you're saying here? You see, we're 'amateurs' here, creating concepts and would appreciated your understanding. Thank you so much for your understanding us 'amateurs' here at boards.sportslogos.net Wow! I just realised the original artist is well over 114 years old! Is she / he okay? How is his / her health? Does she / he still create graphics for the St. Louis Cardinals? Please tell him / her "Hi!" from us amateurs here at boards.sportslogos.net. Thank you so much, Minor League Guy Uni-Watch is the blog of Paul Lukas, an ESPN columnist who is the number one journalist in uniform related news. I love the site and read it everyday. The article linked here is Paul Lukas interviewing St. Louis Cardinals designer Gary Kodner. Kodner was frustrated by MLB/Majestic branned merchandise and onfield attire that incorrectly displayed logos and scripts past and present. Kodner's requests to MLB and Majestic to portray the Cardinals logos correctly were blown off, so he dilligently digitized and catologued all the correct logos and details of the franchise to avoid unauthentic attire in the future. After reading the article I gained a better understanding of where minor league guy is coming from. What I think minor league guy, cokeologist and gatorhunter dont quite grasp is that Ren69's thread is about taking old dated logos and updating them to have a fresh look, not digitizing old logos exactly. Ha! Ya learn somethin' new everyday! Thank you so much for posting the info. I won't bother clicking the links, I think you answered my questions quite well, thank you. Who is this Paul Lukas fellow, what are his credentials? Is he an artist, a designer, has he worked in a uniform factory? Probably not, would be my guess. Correct me if I'm wrong. Oh, is he the fellow that sells laminated cards?

  10. How quirky! I like it I'll definitely try it when I get the time! Happy you like Humphrey! I have more information on him and will post that here in the next few days I like the word, quirky. But it's very hard for my Japanese friends to pronounce it. They say cookie, cooky and kooky. Here's the rest of the story, from Retro Milwaukee:
  11. This actually made it onto a McFarlane NBA figure: Discogod, can you make handcrafted figures of these? Love your custom figures Miyamoto Usagi head sculpt reminds me of Bambi:
  12. Thank you Gothamite, but I want the original and in color too It's a lovely black and white Kodak / Fujifilm / Agfa 35mm film photograph taken with a Nikon F SLR camera? perhaps, of the home unis with simple striping sequence and I love the Sand-Knit numbers on Sand-Knit unis. Also, I love the Adidas shoes, when western Germany was still West Germany.

  14. Hi suplauren. I know you like animals and so do I. Here is Humphrey the giraffe from the early '70s. These are the only pictures left of Humphrey from Milwaukee. I thought perhaps you'd like to breath life back into him. He's all yours, do whatever you'd like with him. He was once a mascot of a used car dealership, but the company went belly-up. A very belated Happy Birthday:
  15. illwauk, My apologies for your mistaking my comment as a joke, and thus offending you. I also have connections to Milwaukee and Wisconsin. I, on the other hand, am proud of Wisconsin being known as America’s Dairlyland. When I explain to people here in Japan where I’m from I say, “Hokkaido and Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA.” You see, I have ties to both Japan and USA. Japan is Hokkaido, USA is Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Hokkaido, the northern most island is known for its wildlife: Ezo shika (deer), higuma (brown bear like grizzly), and tanchozuru or just tsuru (Japanese red-crowned crane) of which, a few live near Baraboo, Wisconsin. Hokkaido is also known for its mountains, hills, lakes, rivers, wetlands, Ainu indigenous people, farming, potatoes and corn, dairyland, cows, sheep, milk, cheese, ice cream (pronounced ai su kureemu, in Japanese), soft cream (like frozen custard, but I tell my friends that Milwaukee frozen custard / ice cream, Gilles and Kopp’s are the best in the world. I love Leon’s Frozen Custard in Oshkosh, Wisconsin too. I love all three the same, top three in the world. Culver’s is okay, I guess), Hokkaido Nippon Ham Fighters pro baseball team based in Sapporo, Sapporo Consadole pro soccer team, no pro basketball team yet, and beer, especially Sapporo Beer, named after the largest city in Hokkaido, Japan. There are many breweries in Japan: Asahi, Kirin, Suntory, Sapporo Beer KK, headquartered in Tokyo. Many, many microbreweries too. When I tell Japanese people about Milwaukee and Wisconsin I tell them it’s famous for beer (Miller), Harley-Davidson motorcycles, Koss headphones, forests and lakes, Indian tribes, deer, now wolves, hunting, farming, cornfield’s (like Field of Dreams), dairyland, dairy products, cheese, cheeseheads, the Green Bay Packers, Milwaukee Brewers, Milwaukee Bucks, Milwaukee Wave, UW-Milwaukee Panthers, Marquette Warriors / Golden Eagles, Wisconsin Badgers, UW-Green Bay Phoenix, etc… Solly's butter burgers (the best butter burgers in the entire world!), and frozen custard (like ice cream / soft cream). I wrote this all off the top of my head, so some information may be inaccurate, my apologies.
  16. I work nights, and don't always get straight to bed. Oh, okay, I understand now. I thought, maybe you are a dairy farmer in Milwaukee, posting before milking cows? I was a little confused, I'm sorry Wow, really? I can't even get mad... I actually feel bad that you hit "post" on these gems believing they were jokes. Lost in translation, perhaps? I didn't get mad either when you posted Kareem and his double birdies on a family friendly site. Do you remember the picture you posted? It's still here, page 10, 3rd post from top. Am I interpreting this wrongly? May I ask who you were pointing these two fingers at? My apologies if I am wrong. Oh, and I wondered why Gothamite wrote this, in response to your post.
