  1. If that’s the case then why did they bring back the original teal & black throwbacks last season?
  2. Yeah, I didn’t mean it would happen any time soon. But it will happen eventually. This latest rebrand hasn’t exactly enjoyed a glowing reception.
  3. Once the Marlins inevitably decide to introduce yet another redesign in the next couple years, here’s what I’m betting they’ll do, based on what the Padres and Brewers appear to be doing: Go back to teal and black with pinstripes at home, but keep their current orangey red as an accent color, as well as keep the current scripts and numbers (maybe tweaked slightly). Maybe they’ll introduce a teal colored alt, as well.
  4. I still think it’s incredibly pointless that they have two separate home uniforms with the only difference between the two being the turquoise trim. Just make the “teal home” alt your everyday home uniform and add turquoise trim to the rest of your wardrobe and you’ll be set. And unpopular opinion time: I actually liked the charcoal gray road uniforms; the pants just looked awful when worn with an alternate jersey.
  5. Seeing that mockup, I think I'd prefer the colors on the wordmark be flipped, but at this point I think I'm still going to be happy either way.
  6. I can try that, but I think I prefer to pick one of either navy or hunter green since they’re so similar in tone.
  7. Slightly different approach for the Rays, focusing just on their current colors and original gradient design. What do you guys think?
  8. Let's return to the AL today with the Tampa Bay Rays! With the Rays bringing back their late '90s look as a fauxback in 2018 and the related merchandise selling like hotcakes, I decided to really lean into that look in a similar way to the Angels. I also replaced navy blue with hunter green in an attempt to produce a true combination of eras-type design. C&C appreciated!
  9. I like this idea. And with the “Brew Crew” script being angled, a beer label-shaped design like on the Schlitz bottle posted above would work well behind the script. Also, given what we now know about the Brewers’ new 2020 uniforms, I wonder if @Victormrey would consider replacing the barley “M” on the cap with the new “BiG” logo.
  10. I like them both. But I wish the one on the left was the Spring Training jersey and the one on the right was the new alternate.
  11. If the new khaki road uniforms are a similar shade to the original ‘69 Padres roads, it could be a really nice look.
  12. Here's a quick mock-up of how it might look on a uniform, using the navy & athletic gold color scheme:
  13. The Brewers look great! Any chance you could raise the numbers a bit to where they usually would be?
  14. The white front paneled home cap is a nice nod to the Expos.
  15. I'd lean towards '93, as that was the last year of the "BiG" era Brewers before they introduced their navy, forest green and metallic gold look the following season.
  16. Love that look for the Reds! While I prefer the Reds be a strictly red & white team, this goes to show that black can be a very effective accent color. Here are the Angels with a solid eggplant colored cap:
  17. With the Padres going back to brown and gold and the rumor that the Brewers will be getting new uniforms as well (the assumption being that both will be upgrades over their current threads), 2020 might be the first season in a long time when every Major League team has a solid look, with the possible exception of the Marlins, who need a few tweaks. When would you all say is the last year that every team in the league looked good?
  18. 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!
  19. Basing the Rangers' design off that old alternate logo is absolutely inspired. I love it!
  20. I really like the orange star on the front of the jersey. It’s a nice pop of color that ties the whole design together.
  21. 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.
  22. 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:
  23. 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.
  24. 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!
