  1. Now that we've batted around, let's jump over to the NL Central with the Chicago Cubs!

     

    For the North Siders, I wanted a design that was 100% Cub and also unmistakably "Chicago" without ripping off @Carolingian Steamroller's wonderful City Edition concept. This design is based on the Cubs' 1978-81 road uniform but adds a splash of red, while the fan favorite "angry Cub" logo is front and center on the jersey. C&C appreciated!

    Looks like they've already decided on Nashville Stars as the name, in honor of the Negro League team:

    I like that they want to pay tribute to the Negro Leagues but "Stars" is such an incredibly generic name. 

     

    Best case scenario in case Nashville ever gets a MLB team is they just promote the Sounds to the Majors. The Sounds have a great identity that's uniquely theirs and a strong uniform history from which to draw influence.

    Oh and yours totally is unique, not trying to insinuate that you wholesaled the AZ look or something. If it weren't for the coloring I doubt I'd even have had the comparison jump into my head. I love your design, easily the best coloring you could have gone with and a pretty stupendous take on an originally pretty bland uniform

     

    No worries. I definitely didn't read it as though you were insinuating I straight up ripped off the D-Backs. :)

     

    For comparison's sake, here is a version with non-pinstriped pants:

    Man I love this, I've found the last 10 years of MLB uniforms to be so drab and boring with the minor league stuff being far too cartoony and more sarcastic than serious. You struck the perfect middle balance here and made a uniform that is both traditional and unique, the only problem I see with them is they have a similar vibe to the  Randy Johnson era Diamondback uniforms 

     

    Thanks for your feedback! Although I can see where you're coming from with regards to the early D-Backs comparison, I think my design has enough differences from that uniform era (script, white front paneled cap, bright yellow trim, no black and different shade of purple) that it stands on its own.

     

    Thanks again for following! Lots more fun and interesting designs are on the way. 


  5. Hi everyone,

     

    I hope you're all enjoying the MLB postseason. Picking up where we left off last year with our MLB City Edition series, @Paul Lucas, @Carolingian Steamroller, @Victormrey@MJD7 and I return with another collaboration, this one inspired by the NBA's Statement Edition uniforms, first introduced for the 2017-18 season. This project is similar in spirit to that series in that we've looked to each Major League Baseball team's unique visual history and combined elements from local culture in order to produce new designs that we hope each team's fanbase would instantly embrace. I'll start today with the California Angels Anaheim Angels Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim:

     

    Upon visiting Angels Stadium for the first time a few weeks ago, l was surprised to learn the much-maligned-on-these-boards Disney era Angels gear is actually a favorite among fans of a certain age! For that reason, I decided to lean into that for my design but with a twist, using the color scheme of the '90s era Mighty Ducks. C&C appreciated!

  6. I like what you’ve done with Tampa Bay! That said, did you ever consider swapping navy for hunter green? That way the concept would reflect all three of the Rays’ distinct looks from over the years. 


  7. WOW! Great work here. I love the touch of gold on the Gold Series alts. The socks forming the baseball stitching on the global logo is genius, and incorporating Comiskey’s iconic pinwheels into the logo is the cherry on top. Also, I knew that BP set looked familiar! 

     

    A few suggestions:

     

    - I would use your “White Sox” script on at least one of the jerseys, so you don’t have four jerseys that all use the “Chicago” script. Alternately, you could use the new “White Sox” script the team started using around the park this season:

    - Maybe make the script on the Windy City alt red, and think about dropping black entirely from the set to play up the flag color scheme more?

     

    Keep up the awesome work! I genuinely look forward to each new team you post.

    ....i mean the current cap is already better than anything they’ve worn before, Braves, or Brewers. And much better than a Block M. But I’ll just stick to what I said above

     

    This take is:

    I liked their 2012 barrelman set

    I think you could take this set, replace the metallic gold with athletic gold and you’d have a perfect evolution of their current look for their next redesign.

     

    EDIT: I do think however you’d need a primary cap with an “M” logo in the style of that script. Much as I love the Barrelman I think that logo is too busy to be used as their main cap logo.

    Why would a team established in the year 1900 create a fauxback? I got it and appreciated it for what it was when the Rays, established in 1998, put out a 70's/80's style fauxback... that was fun and creative and generally well done and was never overused either. But a team that has over 100 years of history has no business creating fake throwbacks, there's no need for it considering how many real throwback options they do have.

     

    To which team are you referring?

    @coco1997 I would probably stick to design elements that were used from 1975 (Hank Aaron's debut) to 1993 (Robin Yount's retirement).  The Seattle Pilots hand-me-downs don't have as much cache locally as a lot of us logophiles might be inclined to believe.  And the Germanics (which I personally like from a strict design POV) just remind fans of the worst era for the team.  But you're still representing 18 of the Brewers 27 AL seasons.

     

    Alrighty, some updates to the Brewers:

     

    HOME:

    Brewers-AL-Legacy-Home-2-0.png

     

    ROAD:

    Brewers-AL-Legacy-Road-2-0.png

     

    - For both sets, I replaced the late '90s style numbers with more traditional block numbers from the '70s-80s. 

    - The '90s "M" on the home cap is replaced with the face of the Barrelman mascot. I also used the Barrelman for the road set's sleeve patch. 

    - I know @NicDB suggested I focus strictly on the 1975-93 era, but I really like the 1970-71 road script, so I rolled with that for the home jersey. 

    - The Pilots-inspired sleeve stripes on the road jersey are replaced with three thick pullover era stripes. 

     

    Hopefully this is a bit of an improvement. C&C appreciated as always!

    I've done a tweak to make it match more.

    Just like the Mets' '87 script and the Brewers' 1978-89 "Milwaukee" script, not everything needs a tail.

     

    I'd like to reserve it for a jacket, a la the "Yankees" script outerwear.

     

    I like what you’ve done, but I prefer the design with the tail.

     

    Great suggestion to use this script on their dugout jacket! I’d buy one right away.
