  1. The Padres ditched these after their '84 N.L. championship:
  2. I think you're right for current teams. It's happened a few times in the past (the Salem Redbirds don't technically "share a nickname," but they weren't a Cardinals affiliate.)
  3. In the late 80s and early 90s, Atlanta had two rookie affiliates, Idaho Falls (Pioneer Lg.) and Pulaski (Appy Lg.) Clubs would typically just use hand-me-downs that the big-league club gave them, but here, neither wore exact copies of the Braves' unis. Idaho Falls had pleasant-looking tomahawk-less tops, while Pulaski got these homebrew-looking things. Weird.
  4. Boston apparently had stacks and stacks of these jazzy duds sitting around for their affiliates to use in the early 90s: Occasionally they'd get really wild and crazy and let them use that font to put the city name on:
  5. For being a rather crummy, undesirable big-league partner in their early days, a surprising number of their affiliates riffed off of the Mariners' template (or just slapped their city name on some hand-me-downs):
  6. The Quebec Remparts used to use the "crenelated" (thank you for the new word!) city flag pattern as striping...it looked sharp.
  7. What would you describe as "more characteristically Quebec City elements"?
  8. I'm sure this is blasphemous in some circles, but..I was never a fan of these. The waist striping is too prominent and runs up too high, making the logo look scrunched; the contrast-color shoulder yoke with thick white outline is garish; and the pants striping doesn't match anything else.
  9. Virginia football always looks sharp...helmet logo is strong, never any obnoxious swooshes or goofy fonts, even the all-blue works. Michigan basketball is also usually pretty good at avoiding the trap that college teams fall into of constantly futzing with their jerseys, and consistently has an excellent look.
  10. A cleaned-up brand evolution done right: Kansas City T-Bones, American Association. . Previous look:
  11. "Traverse City Pit Spitters" ain't swimming in the deep end of the "dignified identities" pool, either...
  12. Also trying to re-work the Expos' logo, the Memphis Blues (notice the hole in the "e" is colored in), the Burlington Expos and Wichita Aeros...
