  1. The deep dive into Champion NFL jersey history gets difficult before 1988. The only indication of manufacturer becomes the jock tag of a game worn jersey because there's no logo on the shoulder. However, I believer that those are in fact Champion, and I would go so far as to say that in the case of the Jets, they've had Champion jerseys since 1974. The Jets changed their uniform from this in 1973: to this in 1974: which looks to be our font. When I tried to find some game worn jerseys, I found this one supposedly from that year: and the tag says: Champion. So congrats, BBTV, we were both wrong, Champion NFL jerseys can be traced back to 1974, possibly earlier with a different font, but I haven't dug hard enough to know.
  2. via the Bills' website: It's possible Champion started making jerseys for the Bills in 1987 as #73 appears to have a Champion jersey, but it wasn't until 1989 that the entire team was outfitted in Champion. The Gridiron Uniform Database has the Champion logo appearing in 1988 on the Bills, and I must've missed it when I was going year to year. My assumption would be the same as GUD's in that the partnership with Champion started in 1988. Dating on auctions is not always accurate, as Mesner is seen in the 1987 photo wearing a Sand-Knit jersey like the rest of the team. Another example, this Sand-Knit jersey is dated 1986-89 even though Harmon's seen here wearing Champion in 1989. Also, a reverse image search gets to the Getty Images page giving the alleged 1987 Coach Levy picture a caption dating it 1992. I apologize for being off by a year.
  3. The 1986 Denver Broncos: Elway must be wearing a Champion jersey or local shop printed jersey, while the team should be wearing Russell. Again, when the team supplied the uniforms instead of the league, you have a few guys wearing slightly different jerseys.
  4. The Falcons had Champion jerseys from 1990-91, but it's possible that #78 had a different brand jersey than the the other guys in the picture. #78 also has thicker red borders than everyone else; compare his 8 with #80 and #82. This is super common before the NFL had a league-wide uniform supplier. Another picture:
  5. Champion started making NFL jerseys in 1988. Falcons, Colts, and Saints did as well:
  6. The Bills have been using High School USA Sans for their Training Camp uniforms since 2014: If the Bills actually were to go back to Champion numbers, though, it'd work well.
  7. Both are custom, but you could build your own versions fairly easily. Here's what I did: Rams: all numbers but 4 made using tweets and jersey listings, and 4 made from pieces of existing numbers and the Madden hype video for reference. Chargers: some numbers from jersey listings, the rest made from slanting and slightly condensing the Vikings' numbers and adding a border, because that's what they are. End result:
  8. I'm just being overly critical because they're my alma mater, I would have to get used to the yokes but I'm glad you kept them a two stripe team. While the hidden arrow in the Forward stripe is cheesy at best, the best thing Under Armour did was make all sports have a double stripe, and you kept that, so that's all that matters. Solid concepts, keep em coming!
  9. Not sure building an identity around a one-off adidas fauxback that was hated is the best idea. That being said, the execution is pretty good and I appreciate the attempt to differentiate the reds that consume half the Big Ten. Dropping the black shadow is a nice touch too. My only issue here is that I would put the vertically arched Wisconsin on the basketball jerseys in order to make the wordmarks larger and to call back to the Bo Ryan days. I think Under Armour's Forward stripe with the unified rounded condensed Aachen font was an attempt to differentiate the Badgers from the pack, but it's pretty subtle. If you were to go down a new path, you could try emphasizing the arrow more or by designing around a forward arrow, but keeping it fairly traditional and tasteful like you've done here with the yokes and stripes.
  10. I beat you to it 4 months ago, bud, but you're right.
  11. I'm pretty sure I know what you're asking for, but just to confirm, is this an league for people playing fantasy soccer or is this just a fictional soccer league?
  12. Thank you all so much for the votes! I'm still bummed I missed the first event, but I absolutely love Logolympiad. @pollux, you always do an amazing job putting this all together. And congrats to @Josef_Bretones for continuing to fill your trophy case and @scottyeagle for getting to the podium again!
  13. How predictable shall I be? Way too many Wisconsin sports anniversaries this year.
  14. Sorry, meant name on back and meant not having the primary logo, but having a different logo.
  15. Is there a requirement for a NOB? Also, does the primary logo need to be the logo on the uniform?
  16. Currently it's a custom font that's littered all over their social media, so if you have the patience you could theoretically get what you need. However, the previous font was Coliseum and the one before than was Aachen.
  17. Scripts are always difficult because there's a lot of nuances, but Parkside is similar.
