  1. Great work on both OKC identities, I’d expect nothing less. I especially love the interlocking “O-K-C” logo. For the 89ers dream catcher logo, I wonder if you could modify the feathers hanging off of it to be shaped more like pennants? I agree with @itsmb8 that the tornado design for the Twisters could use some work. The black bits actually cause it to look like a very thick, severed tiger tail! I wonder if something a little more abstract could solve the problem, like this: http://btgym.com/hitting-institute/club/ Side note, those colors would’ve been perfect for the latest Marlins redesign.
  2. Glad to see that this series is continuing! The Stars and Padres look really great. I think the script on the Padres road jersey should be brown with orange drop shadows since the “D” gets a bit lost on the head spoon.
  3. Sand is definitely a color I would not mind the Rangers introducing into their look.
  4. Haha! I think it actually works well. My original idea was for you to eliminate the face entirely and have one line of stitching going vertically rather than horizontally across the moon.
  5. Thanks! Today is a BIG post featuring the New York Mets! (CC: @JH42XCC) METS HOME ALT (1963-77) METS HOME/ROAD ALT (1963-77) METS HOME ALT (1978-82) METS HOME/ROAD ALT (1978-82) METS HOME ALT (1983-84) METS HOME ALT (1985-90) METS ROAD ALT (1985-87) METS HOME ALT (1991-92) METS ROAD ALT (1988-92) METS HOME ALT (1993-94) METS ROAD ALT (1993-94) METS HOME ALT (1995-97) METS ROAD ALT (1995-2012) METS HOME ALT (1998-2011) METS HOME ALT (2013-Present) METS HOME FAUXBACK (2020-Present) It took me a while to get through the Mets because while their look has remained fairly consistent since the '60s, they've still made some noticeable changes over the years, adding (and then removing) racing stripes, frequently playing with their road script, and then of course there was that experiment with black in the late '90s-early 2000s that everyone loved. For the '98-'11 home set, I figured a sleeveless look might have been something the Mets would've experimented with, right in the midst of their BFBS debacle and at the time when sleeveless unis were all the rage around the league. The present day fauxback was inspired by Pete Alonso's recent plea on Twitter for his team to resurrect the black look. Re-coloring the Mets' pullover era racing striped jersey in solid black makes for an interesting combination of eras design. C&C appreciated!
  6. The new cap logo is a big upgrade over your first version. And man, I’d buy any jersey or cap from that Hornets-colored set in a heartbeat. Great work!
  7. Thanks! I prefer the "Brewers" script from those years, but I get that it would make sense to use "Milwaukee" on the road. Thanks! Green is criminally underused throughout MLB so I too wish the Brewers had a green alt during those '94-99 years. Thanks! Quick post today with the dearly departed Montreal Expos: EXPOS HOME ALT (1969-91) EXPOS HOME/ROAD ALT (1969-91) EXPOS HOME ALT (1992-2003) EXPOS HOME/ROAD ALT (1992-2003) C&C appreciated. The Mets are up next!
  8. Great to have you back, and what a way to return with the Charlotte Knights! I am very proud of the fact that my Chicago White Sox have some of the best minor-league identities in the league. I really love what you’ve done with them here, although I do have a few nitpicks. One, something seems off about the colors of the front numbers on the home and road jerseys, particularly the white numbers on the road set. Second, as others have already said, the cap logo is a bit awkward looking. I think the plume hanging off the back of the “C” is the problem. May I offer a few suggestions for alternate C’s? or even a “C” based on the Knights’ Hispanic Heritage branding cap: This concept is just a few small tweaks away from being a perfect identity. Keep up the great work!
  9. This was a great series! It’s not easy coming up with completely original team identities but you definitely rose to the occasion. I love the Crescents. I dig that logo (I’m getting serious Mac Tonight vibes) but I’m curious how it would look if you removed the face and added baseball stitching to the left side of the crescent.
  10. Thanks, guys! Up today are the Brewers! BREWERS HOME (1970-71) BREWERS ROAD ALT (1970-71) BREWERS HOME ALT (1972-77) BREWERS ROAD ALT (1972-77) BREWERS HOME ALT (1978-89) BREWERS HOME/ROAD ALT (1978-89) BREWERS HOME ALT (1990-93) BREWERS HOME/ROAD ALT (1990-93) BREWERS HOME/ROAD ALT (1994-99) C&C appreciated!
  11. Drats, I had the Colt .45s prepared and completely forgot to post them when I got to the Astros. So yep, here are the Houston Colt .45s! COLT .45s HOME ALT (1963-64) COLT .45s ROAD ALT (1963-64) This is definitely something I've thought about doing at some point. Maybe if I feel inspired enough at the end of this project I'll revisit this idea but I won't make any promises right now. It's probably something that would deserve its own thread. The Angels had a navy alternate with light blue/periwinkle sleeves in '97, so I whipped up a solid periwinkle alt. I also got around to doing the red Angels alternates you requested. ANGELS HOME ALT (1989-92) ANGELS HOME ALT (1993-96) ANGELS HOME ALT (1997-2001) C&C appreciated!
  12. Even though I was unaware you were suspended, I’ll say this: It takes a big man to be so honest and admit their mistakes the way you just did. You have a lot of supporters on this site and I'm glad you've decided to recommit yourself to your craft.
  13. Here's my take on a '79-89 Boston road set. I don't think I ever realized the Red Sox switched to block numbers for a time: RED SOX ROAD ALT (1979-89) Good catch. Just to nitpick, it should actually 1978-85. INDIANS HOME ALT (1978-85) Ok, so a few options for the Cubs. The first one couldn't be more obvious: Just give the '82-89 a traditional gray road uniform: CUBS ROAD (1982-89) ...This way their blue road jersey becomes their official home/road alt. The second option is a powder blue alt as you suggested. You're right that it would get confusing seeing it worn against opponents who wore powder blue road unis in the '80s, but on its own merits I think it's a great look: CUBS HOME ALT (1982-89) To my knowledge the Sox stopped wearing their Halfway to St. Patty's unis a few years ago, which is damn shame because the green pinstripes are a great look. Since the Reds were the first team to wear green in celebration of St. Patty's Day in 1978, I decided to start with the '76-81 Sox. I also added orange for the full Irish flag effect: WHITE SOX HALFWAY TO ST. PATTY'S DAY ALT (1978-81) WHITE SOX HALFWAY TO ST. PATTY'S DAY ALT (1982-86) WHITE SOX HALFWAY TO ST. PATTY'S DAY ALT (1987-90) Thanks again for your feedback @disman00911 and everyone else! I'll have the Brewers up soon.
  14. AWESOME work on both Sox and Cubs. Your updated Cubs primary logo is fantastic, by the way. The ivy themed set is an idea I’ve always wanted to try but I think you pretty much nailed it. My only suggestions would be to add a touch of red to the Cubs’ Tradition design to set it apart from the Sox one, and I think the Sox Home Plate jersey would work better as a pullover.
  15. I haven’t commented yet but this has been a great series. You’ve done a fantastic job nailing the 1930s aesthetic for each team. My favorites so far are probably the Seals and Friars. I also love seeing your different influences and inspirations explained for each design. Great presentation!
  16. Wow, thanks for the detailed feedback! I will be doing something for the '90s expansion teams, but I will probably post them all together since they will probably all have no more than one or two alts each. I actually do have a few designs planned for the D-Backs but none for Tampa Bay at the moment. I'll also be tackling the teams that no longer exist or relocated (Senators, Pilots and Expos). My original idea was a navy alt with the dangling sock logo on the chest instead of the "RED SOX" script but I couldn't seem make it work. I'll try to play around with it more. I did try to make a red Cubs jersey work but decided against it for the exact reason you mentioned. Also, the Reds. You're right, I totally overlooked the '93-98 Reds. Here they are! REDS HOME/ROAD ALT (1993-98) You're right that the Tigers' home uniforms don't wear orange, but I always thought a team called the Tigers should wear an orange jersey, and as a rule of thumb bright colored jerseys tend to pair better with plain white or white pinstriped home pants. This is another one I forgot about. Here you go! I've also added it and the '93-98 Reds one to their respective original posts. ASTROS HOME ALT (1994-99) I'll try working up red '89-92 and '93-96 alts. My A's post will also include an alt or two for their time in Kansas City. And yes, a '70s-80s pullover style Canada Day alt for the Jays is definitely in my plans! Today's team is the Los Angeles Dodgers! DODGERS HOME/ROAD ALT (1963-71) DODGERS HOME/ROAD ALT (1972-98) DODGERS HOME/ROAD ALT (1999-2002) DODGERS HOME/ROAD ALT (2003-Present) DODGERS HOME NIGHT GAME ALT (2000s) DODGERS SUNDAY HOME ALT (2010s-Present) I figured the Dodgers could pull off a powder blue alt since every other team seems to be jumping back on the powder blue bandwagon, and the Bums were one of the teams who did it best. I also whipped up a BFBS-style "Hollywood Nights" alt for home night games as a nod to the Lakers' alternates. C&C appreciated!
  17. Thanks, man! Well, it wouldn't be the first time... Let's close out the series today with the Diamondbacks' own division, the NL West! COLORADO ROCKIES: LOS ANGELES DODGERS: SAN DIEGO PADRES: SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS: Thanks for following!
  18. The curly "C" logo looks surprisingly great on the front of that Sox jersey.
  19. Thanks for following! After a short delay, I'm back today with California/Anaheim/Los Angeles Angels! CALIFORNIA ANGELS HOME ALT (1965-70) CALIFORNIA ANGELS ROAD ALT (1965-70) CALIFORNIA ANGELS HOME ALT (1971-72) CALIFORNIA ANGELS ROAD ALT (1971-72) CALIFORNIA ANGELS HOME ALT (1973-88) CALIFORNIA ANGELS ROAD ALT (1973-88) CALIFORNIA ANGELS HOME ALT (1989-92) CALIFORNIA ANGELS ROAD ALT (1989-92) CALIFORNIA ANGELS HOME ALT (1993-96) ANAHEIM ANGELS HOME ALT (1997-2001) LOS ANGELES ANGELS of ANAHEIM ROAD ALT (2000s-Present) C&C appreciated!
  20. Thanks! I've always liked the Pirates in black, gold and red. I was trying to really hit that late '90s-early 2000s aesthetic. Two divisions left. Let's start the week with the AL East! BALTIMORE ORIOLES: BOSTON RED SOX: NEW YORK YANKEES: TAMPA BAY RAYS: TORONTO BLUE JAYS: We'll wrap up with the NL West in a few days. C&C appreciated!
  21. Love this concept. Though when I look at the pink dolphin I can’t help but think of the man-eating bathtub from Ghostbusters 2.
  22. Thanks! We stay in the the Central but move to the National League today! CHICAGO CUBS: CINCINNATI REDS: MILWAUKEE BREWERS: PITTSBURGH PIRATES: ST. LOUIS CARDINALS:
  23. Thanks! Good catch! I've gone back to my original post and added the stripes. I also realized I forgot to upload the '89-92 road alt, so that's been added, too. Up next are the Kansas City Royals! ROYALS HOME/ROAD ALT (1969-72) ROYALS HOME/ROAD ALT (1973-82) ROYALS HOME/ROAD ALT (1983-94) ROYALS HOME ALT (Late 1990s-early 2000s) ROYALS HOME/ROAD ALT (2008-Present) *I decided to design a new Black for Black's Sake style jersey for the Royals mainly because I love the color combo of powder blue and black. I might actually take an old idea I had for a series and fold it into this one and do a new BFBS design for each team going forward. C&C appreciated!
  24. Next up is the AL Central! CHICAGO WHITE SOX: CLEVELAND INDIANS: DETROIT TIGERS: KANSAS CITY ROYALS: MINNESOTA TWINS: C&C appreciated as always!
  25. Thanks for your support, guys! I assume by "navy hem" you're referring to the placket piping? Let's end the week with America's favorite team, the Houston Astros! ASTROS HOME ALT (1965-70) ASTROS ROAD ALT (1965-70) ASTROS HOME/ROAD ALT (1971-74) ASTROS HOME/ROAD ALT (1975-80) ASTROS HOME ALT (1981-88) ASTROS ROAD ALT (1981-88) ASTROS HOME ALT (1989-93) ASTROS ROAD ALT (1989-93) ASTROS HOME ALT (1994-99) C&C appreciated as always! The Royals will be up next. Trying to decide if I can make a metallic gold set work as one of their '90s alts.
