  1. Let's continue the series staying on the West Coast with the Oakland A's!

     

    During the 70’s, the Oakland Athletics peaked, both competitively and aesthetically speaking. One of the figures most associated with those A’s is the one and only Reggie “Mr. October” Jackson. And, at the same time, one of the images most associated with him are those iconic sleeveless uniforms. With this design, I looked to bring back the team’s golden era, back when they shined, not only in the standings, but also on the field.

  2. I haven't had the chance to comment until now but man, you're a mad lad. You've managed to change the identity of the MLB teams altogether yet you've nailed it!

    This has been one my fav series on the boards, I can't wait to see what's left.

     

    As for the Monterrey, I like both name and look, but I don't really see the correlation between the name and the pattern from the sleeves. If you're talking about the Mexican Monterrey, then I'd go for a Spanish name. Some nicknames directly associated with the city would be Sultanes (Sultans), Montañeros (Mountaineers) or something related to the industry. As @coco1997 said, using the Mexico national colours would be nice.

     

    Keep it up!


  3. This is it guys! The final team of the series: the Washington Nationals!

     

    The Nats set is inspired by the city of Washington DC, featuring the Washington Monument on both sleeves and pants, as well as off-white pinstripes for the home jersey, inspired by the marble used in the most important and iconic buildings of the city (colour idea suggested by @MJD7

    I'd like to thank all of you who have taken part in this series, giving me feedback, suggestions and ideas. I hope you enjoyed this series as much as I did!

    While I miss the original sock striping on the Cards, I think what you've done with the arches are perfect. Also good call going with the white lettering on the red jersey. Often the Cardinals will go with red on red.

    Nice work as always. Both sets are really nice!

     

    Thank you both!

    Could you make the arch more visible?

     

    The original idea was to make it subtly, following the style of most soccer jerseys. Would you suggest using a contrasting colour for it?

    Would it be too much to add the Lombard Street design to the socks? For a team that’s always had great hosiery, it seems a shame to leave them completely bare.

     

    Here you go!

    Thank you guys for the positive feedback! Let's continue the series with the Cardinals.

    The set features a subtle graphic of the Gateway Arch on the front. I decided to keep the powder blue uniform with the St. Louis wordmark, which I love:

    I’m not really feeling that number font.... still good though.

    Padres are GORGEOUS. That road set is a work of art. One of your best yet!

     

    I do agree that a different number style might suit them better.

    Both the Pirates and Padres are fantastic! You’ve done well with bringing in unorthodox ideas onto the template.

     

    I do agree that the Padres could use a different number font, such as the 2004-11 set or Daytona Tortugas-like numerals. 

     

    Still, this whole series is really well put-together.

     

    Thank you very much for your feedback!

     

    Here's the Padres design with both old font and Daytona Tortugas' style (credit to @MJD7 for the latter) for the numbers:

    What do you think?

    The Pirates turned out great! You definitely got across the "pirate look" idea without making it look too over the top. 

     

    Thanks! That was my idea.

     

    We're getting closer to end of the series! Let's continue with the San Diego Padres.

    I wanted to bring back the classy brown/yellow/orange colour scheme, featuring a front graphic inspired by the church façade of Mission San Diego de Alcalá:

    Yes. You should try your hand at some alternates. Good work!

     

    Thank you! Actually, all these designs are meant to be alternates 😉

    Love the Phillies. Always great to see them in that retro color scheme. 

     

    Thanks! The maroon + powder blue is one of my favourite combinations in the Majors, so I had to brought it back.

     

    Time for the Pirates!
    Not much explanation for this. The Bucs' set tries to mimic a pirate jacket:
