  1. Hello there! Next up we have the Texas Rangers: This design derives its inspiration from the Rangers' former alternate logo, a personal favorite of mine. The stripes in the logo translate into pinstripes on the uniform, with the red "Rangers" wordmark arching boldly across the chest. Red is injected elsewhere into the set in order to keep balance with the abundance of blue. Let us know what you think!
  2. I love the emphasis on teal as well as the number font!
  3. Great cleanup of the Cowboys identity! You took all of the best elements & put them into one set. Nice job!
  4. I might’ve said this before already, but since there are a multitude of NFL teams already opting to wear white at home, I’d say that white should just be the designated home uniform, with the colored jersey the away (like the NBA should be). There’d be more synchronism among the leagues of teams at white wearing home, and that way the home fans would get to see a different colored uniform every week. On that same note, I’m growing more and more bored with gray uniforms for away teams in MLB. I know it’s based on decades of tradition, but it results in bland looking matchups in my opinion. I’d rather see colored uniforms as the away options for most if not all teams across the league.
  5. Thanks, you're right! Completely unintentional, but the looks are very similar. Although I have plenty of alternate color schemes that I mocked up just for fun, this series would continue forever if I tried showing them all. So I've decided on just a few of my favorites I wanted to show you guys, and here they are! Baltimore Orioles: A simple swap of brown into the current scheme, inspired by the St. Louis Browns. Charlotte Knights: A black & carolina blue scheme to have some more brand synchronism with the neighboring Panthers. San Diego Padres: With the long-awaited upcoming return to brown & yellow, this is my one last attempt to salvage the navy, complete with the "SD" mark on all the jerseys inspired by the 2016 ASG uniform. Tampa Bay Rays: A double-green attempt on my current design of their set, resulting in an undoubtedly unique scheme. Texas Rangers: As recently suggested by @jacobrgroman in the 2020 Padres thread, here is a brown & powder blue take on the Rangers, an idea which I quite like. I'd be happy to take some suggestions if anybody has them, but if not, that'll do it! Thanks to everybody who followed along at any point in the series, like I've said before this is probably the most fun I've had developing concepts, and I hope you enjoyed checking it out too. I'd love to hear any favorites you had over the course of the thread! Sincerely, MJD7
  6. Thank you! I appreciate it. I think the Mariners font fits pretty well as-is, but another option for a font couldn't hurt! Wrapping up the fauxback options, we have the proposed expansion teams: Charlotte Knights: A more 80's-fied version of the home, as well as a teal iteration of the Hornets fauxback uniform. Mexico City Diablos: A uniform inspired by the Diablos Rojos' red alt with the Mariners trident, along with three 80's Padres-styled fauxback iterations. Nashville Sounds: Orange and red versions of the current fauxback, complete with a new Tennessee flag cap. That's about it for the expansion teams, as most of them (especially the off-white ones) didn't really need a different option. If you have any suggestions though let me know, if not I have just a few alternate color schemes I'd like to show you all and then we'll wrap it up!
  7. Thank you! Now we'll move on to the National League! Arizona Diamondbacks: Based on Arizona's original home uniform, complete with the off-white cap option. Atlanta Braves: Home version of the 70's feather uniforms. Chicago Cubs: A uniform based on the 1957 full-team-name uniforms. Cincinnati Reds: 1936 and 1967 fauxbacks. Colorado Rockies: A fauxback based on the Denver Bears' "Strike Zone" uniform, utilizing a script created by Jesse Alkire. Miami Marlins: Previously seen 50's and 90's fauxbacks, along with a new teal option. Montreal Expos: Two light blue alternates inspired by @SFGiants58's beautiful take on the team. Philadelphia Phillies: An all maroon set like the uniform they wore this year. San Diego Padres: A couple more 80's fauxbacks, one based on the home uniform and one based on the yellow BP jersey. San Francisco Giants: An inversion of the orange fauxback, an alternate road option based off the late 80's set, and a San Francisco Seals fauxback. St. Louis Cardinals: A fauxback based on the 80's BP set. That's what I've got, any & all feedback/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. The expansion teams fauxbacks will be coming up next.
  8. I could be wrong, but yea it looks like the pointed “serifs” at the ends of the letters are gone, or at least more rounded-up in a @SFGiants58 mission-type fashion. If that’s the case, I’d be all for it.
  9. Alright I'm gonna start off showing you guys some outtakes, beginning with some alternate Turn Back the Clock Options, first off with the American League! Chicago White Sox: A couple of designs based on the famous 80's "SOX" set. Cleveland Indians: A design based on the red-heavy 60's look, and one based on the Major League racing stripes. Oakland Athletics: A couple of vest looks, as recommended by @coco1997. Seattle Mariners: A couple of similar fauxbacks based on the Mariners' 1978 uniforms. Tampa Bay Rays: A full set of the 80's fauxbacks, as well as a navy iteration of the gradient TBTC uniform. Texas Rangers: Based on the Rangers 1994 (I believe?) fauxback to the Senators before they moved to Arlington. That's all I have prepared for now, but please feel free to suggest any fauxbacks you would like to see! Also let me know what you think!
  10. This is a cool idea for a thread, I’ll definitely be following it as the season goes on! If that Saints-Rams matchup happened in real life, it’d automatically be matchup of the year in my book.
  11. I'm gonna go ahead and post the final expansion team, so here they are, the Diablos del México! The identity is based off of the Diablos Rojos del México of the Mexican League. Athletic gold is promoted to a secondary color in the main set (inspired by this uniform), to distinguish from the Reds and create another unique color scheme in the league. The striping is based on the curvature of the wordmark, and there is a small arrow at the bottom of the pants stripe to match & tie into the theme as well. The red alternate is based off of this uniform and this cap, while the BP cap takes its inspiration from this Diablos Rojos cap. The Turn Back the Clock set is based on this Mexico City throwback. The Mariners-inspired cap logo comes from this alternate. The Country Pride Alternate derived its design from this uniform as well as the Mexico flag. And that wraps up the expansion teams! I'd love to hear what anyone thinks. I have a few outtakes to show you guys and then we'll be done!
  12. Glad to see this is back, this is one of the things I look forward to with the start of a new NFL season. Though I agree with the opinions above about Rams-Panthers being higher (it was a great game to watch on TV, for me at least) and Saints-Texans being on the worst list just for it’s blandness, it’s still nice to see the differing opinions we have. Looking forward to Week 2’s list.
  13. In a division where they already have another team with a red home jersey & dark helmet, the orange-heavy creamsicle set would go a long way in setting them apart in that regard as well.
  14. Apologies for the delay, but here is the next expansion team, the San Antonio Missions! I really love the name, and the newest logo-set is pretty nice, but something just feels... missing, having the set in navy & red. To fix this, I brought gold up to primary status and paired it with forest green, a color which would now be unique in MLB, with my A's set reverting to kelly. This hopefully creates a natural-feeling scheme that fits well with the Missions' overall branding. The main set takes inspiration from classic baseball striping, with a modern twist. The main cap style is inspired by this Missions' 1934 cap. The BP features a "SA" logo modified from the wordmark by me, and the Turn Back the Clock set reverts more directly to the Missions' 1939 uniform. One more expansion team left! C+C is appreciated.
  15. I think that would be a tad too derivative of the NBA club for my tastes. I did use the Jazz's City Edition colors as inspiration for my Las Vegas set, though. Thanks! I wanted to implement that uniform somehow, and it mostly made its way in through the original home uniform. Using off-white as a base is a nice idea, though. How does this look? It's definitely more clearly a "throwback" uniform, which I like.
  16. Any thoughts before I move on to the next expansion team?
  17. Thanks! Yea, I definitely wanted to go with navy & yellow, as the Bees already look a bit much like a Pirates derivative, plus the scheme would be unique and would fit with the Jazz. Thanks! I think I'd like to keep the wordmarks straight for the Bees, partially because I don't have the ability to arch wordmarks like that, but also because I think it's a nice unique look for them. @SFGiants58, here is a look at Roma with about as much blue infused as I could. I love the flag stripes, so those stay. If I added any more blue it'd basically become @Victormrey and I's take on Italy in our WBC series. Also, here's a look at your suggestions for the yellow alt for the Bees, as well as a more yellow-heavy take on the home & away uniforms. I like that this would distance them more from the Pirates, my only concern being that the primary home would look awfully close to the throwback. Any suggestions for what to do with either of those two uniforms are welcome.
  18. Only 3 expansion teams left, one of which we have now with the Salt Lake Bees! Another update/refresh of one of my Redesigns sets, with the overall goal of making it look cleaner and more befitting of a modern Major League club. Hypothetically being the only navy & yellow team in MLB has its perks as well. The main home set is now primarily navy and has a new straight "Bees" wordmark, to match the away, which now has a powder-blue-tinted base. The alternates are based off of Boston Bees uniforms of the past. The BP embraces the cartoon bee, and the fauxback is the home set from my Redesigns series. I honestly imagine the fauxback would be as popular if not more so than the primary home, and might even take over has the primary in a few years time. I'd love to hear your thoughts, comment down below what you think!
  19. Thanks! I imagine depending on the application (English or Italian) they could be both, but I do agree with you that Roma Wolves probably sounds better. Thank you, I appreciate it!
  20. If an expansion team in London has virtually no chance of actually happening, this is even less likely, but here are the Rome Wolves! The namesake of this team is inspired by the she-wolf in the myth of the foundation of Rome. The colors are derived from AS Roma. The main striping is inspired by @bkknight95's Virginia Tech set in his 1972 project. The cream & sand uniform bases are based on the shades of stone of the Colosseum. The front numbers are centered on the main uniforms, giving the set a bit more of a basketball/soccer feel. The BP derives its primary logo from the Arizona Fall League's Glendale Desert Dogs. Like London (and Toronto) before them, Rome gets their own "Country Pride" alternate, complete with the green & red of Italy's flag, to be worn on special occasions. That's about it, I'd love to hear what you all think on these last two teams!
  21. Looks good! The striping pattern on the baseball jersey would make for a good Texas Rangers concept. All around nice work though, this seems to be a look that New Mexico State could own as unique to them.
  22. Here now we have an expansion team that everybody probably saw coming at some point, here are the Portland Beavers! Another refresh of one of my Redesigns sets, the Portland Beavers get updated with a deep cardinal and kelly green color scheme, much like I did in the updated version of the set. Off-white is taken out of the main set to clean things up a bit. The throwback set is based off of the Beavers' old uniforms. It doesn't necessarily throw back to too long ago, but the set still has that vintage feel that I really like for this team. Other than that though, I feel like this set mostly speaks for itself. Let me know what you think!

    Name That Font!

    Anyone have any idea what type of font this would be/something similar?
  24. Thanks! I agree, it’s not the best situation, and should have never even had to happen. While I like the idea of each team having its own trim color, at that point I think it’d be better to just stay with the white vs. gray regular uniforms (which is the best option anyway).
