  1. Time for the Yankees!


    The Yankees are one of the most difficult teams to approach to when it comes to special edition designs such as this Statement Series. They’ve been using almost the same design for more than a hundred years, and it has become the most iconic and distinct look in baseball; their fans love it and their rivals fear it.
    This design tradition is probably the main reason why the Bronx Bombers remain one of the few teams without alternate jerseys. 
    Nonetheless, in 1996 the team found an alternative, going for a 1934 throwback Black Yankees design. That is why I have decided to bring back that iconic look, with the "Yankees" wordmark on the front, a navy blue melange pattern, and simple white piping, as well as a navy cap with white soutache.



  2. The Cards design looks fantastic! I love its 80's vibe 👌🏻

    The Brewers look great! Any chance you could raise the numbers a bit to where they usually would be?


    Sure thing!

    I like the idea, but I'm not really feeling these. 


    What if you tried a script that resembled an actual beer label? It's not something I'd recommend for a regular look, but it'd be great for a project like this.


    Do you have any specific idea/example in mind? Mimicking a beer label was something I thought about, but ended up ditching it in order not to lose the team's identity.

  3. Moving up North to Wisconsin!


    The Milwaukee Brewers have one of the more unique identities in the Majors. It's not only a distinctive name and branding, but it's also strongly linked to the city of Milwaukee, its community and the famous local brewing industry.

    Therefore, beer has to be the element this concept focus on. At first, I thought about using a semi-realistic beer glass look for the design, but it looked to close to those gimmicky uniforms you can see from time to time in the MiLB. That's why in the end I decided to go for a more simplistic look, using just off-white and atheltic gold to mimmick the beverage look, partly inspired by the USMNT "popsicle" away kit. I've also decided to use the "Brew Crew" wordmark, often used by ballboys and other team staff, to complete the link between the design and the beer inspiration:



  4. 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.



  5. 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!

  6. 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:
