In a recent SportsLogos news post about Riddell giving a helmet to the Houston Astros with a design based on the team, author Demetrius Bell brought up the popularity of "crossover designs" in the concept world, combining a sports' uniform with the identity of another sports' team. In the end of the article, he asked the readers which baseball team would look best on a football helmet, which immediately sparked my imagination. After having done a handful of them, I decided I wanted to continue the project as far as my motivation would take me. Sports logos and design is one of my biggest interests, and this kind of project is simple, and addicting. I'm going to try and make what I think would be a realistic interpretation of how MLB (and perhaps other sports) teams' helmets would look like if they played football, and maybe a few alternates and throwbacks in the mix too.
Not sure how much I will do, but I figure I might as well set it up just in case. I'll make a new post and add to the OP when I make new additions. I'm considering doing MLB and NHL requests, but only based on logos/identities, not original concepts!
Clicking each helmet will bring you to the full-size version.

The only ones I've done so far are the Florida Panthers in celebration of their rebranding, the Carolina Hurricanes alternate, and the Pittsburgh Penguins 1992-2002 throwback.
This format and project are both a work in progress. Feedback on either would be appreciated!
