  1. Loving the one on the middle left. Top middle ain't too shabby either. Interesting that Comets and Rockets were considered long before teams by those names actually formed in Houston. I guess it was destiny.
  2. Era appropriate and definitely registers as a Phily team to me. I'll be paying attention to this series.
  3. I'm digging the brown and red-orange so far. But what about wine (primary), navy (secondary), and gold (trim). It's pretty close to their traditional colors, but would read as distinctly Cleveland because of the similarity to the Cavs.
  4. Man, both throwbacks are a beaut! It actually does anger me that they Packers have botched the navy look everytime they tried it. They look so much better in your concept.
  5. I really wouldn't be mad if they rebranded as the Serpientes. Unless they want to go back to the unis they won the World Series in, this set is closer than anything they currently wear to what I would expect a baseball team in Arizona to look like.
  6. I'm guessing for the Yankees, we'll get something that specifically references the Bronx. A "BX" in the style of the Yankees iconic NY could look good if excecuted correctly.
  7. Not feeling the red pins, otherwise this is a pretty solid look. Only I'm not sure I'd consider it an upgrade from the actual set if only because the White Sox hit a grand slam with theirs.
  8. I think Wyoming-WMU has a bit of the Texas-Tennessee think going on where one school is more associated with their mascot based logo that the similar monograms aren't a problem. Granted, it doesn't help that both mascot logos feature horses on top of the similar colors. I think I'd have preferred to see a WMU rather than just a W. But that would make Western the only D1 Michigan school not branding itself around a single block letter.
  9. Is the sign usually lit up in those colors? Otherwise it comes across a a pride month jersey. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but something to keep in mind. Also, not sure I'm feeling the royal blue pants. I feel like monochrome only works in extremely light (gray, powder blue, gold, etc.) or extremely dark (black, navy) colors. Otherwise, it's too much of a "softball" look for my liking. Good concept though. Are you gonna try to take on other teams that aren't part of the initial group?
  10. Not bad. But keep in mind that the Packers used several fonts in the 60s as that sort of thing wasn't nearly as regulated in those days. I've seen team photos of Henry Jordan (74) and Forrest Gregg (75) wearing completely different 7s. Also, I would prefer the pants matched the jersey on the throwback, as was the case in 1944... the last time they won a championship in the "classic Lambeau" look.
  11. In the Brewers case, it was their royal pinstriped fauxbacks that were selling more than any other of their jerseys. Also, you'd have to think there would be a powder blue uniform with the new set if it were strictly about what sells.
  12. Gotta say, I'm a little peeved about the Cubs in navy. I have to believe the Brewers decision to retain navy was at least in part to not step on toes and be another royal team in the NL Central. The Cubs may have worn navy at a time when pretty much every team was navy or red, but they've been royal blue for a good century now. It'd be one thing if the Marlins added random colors (ironically, their City Connect jerseys were quite tame), but not a club with as much history as the Cubs. They didn't have to overthink this. Something like a royal jersey swapping out the Cubs circle for the Municipal Device would have been perfectly fine. The City Connect unis are currently sitting with a .500 OPS.
  13. The blue helmets with black jerseys give me an original Falcons vibe, and the colors themselves recall the Buffalo Braves; both of which are very appropriate for this era.
  14. Good looking uniform in a vacuum, but I don't think it's very on brand for the Braves. Maybe try a red version of the Hank 715 unis?
  15. Not bad. I see what you mean about the tricorner without the numbers. But the Chargers kept their numbers pretty well into the 70s, so it would still be period appropriate if you added them. I also see what you mean with the NE logo looking generic. But it does give off a super 70s vibe, so... mission accomplished?
  16. Never liked the hiking patriot. Otherwise this is exactly how I wished they looked. Maybe experiment with the tri-corner hat?
  17. I remember Wisconsin using them the year they had Russell Wilson.
  18. Oh, I've definitely heard it... just not sure how accurate it is anymore. Besides, the 1980s UW-Mad phrase I've always liked was ESFU.
  19. In fairness, I'm not sure I'd call what surrounds Madison (or most of Wisconsin) "reality" in good conscience.
  20. Milwaukee Milkmen: Since the Brewers are looking like a respectable ballclub again, we have to take up the mantle of having a goofy, nonsensical identity in Wisconsin. Green Bay Booyah: Hold my beer. Madison Mallards: Hold my edible.
  21. Not gonna lie... I kinda dig Metrostar 96. My preference for branding around "Metro" with no specific qualifiers has less to do with any personal preferences of mine and more to do with repairing the absolute mess NYRB has made with the fanbase for soccer in the NYC/NJ market. Branding yourself as New York when you play in the Meadowlands is one thing, but not Harrison/Newark. Metro wouldn't alienate people in NJ who want to root for their own team, which is a market I'd try to corner since NYCFC has most of NYC itself. But Metro would still appeal to Mets fans who don't want to root for a club so closely associated with the hated Yankees.
  22. Glad they put a cheese wheel front and (off) center on the Brewers hat to represent the abundant dairy farms in Milwaukee County/414. It's like they did the opposite with the Brewers. They only put the area code where the team plays, but most of the patches are things that are better associated with other parts of Wisconsin.
  23. I'll echo the sentiment that the K in the KC doesn't really read as a K. You're also gonna have to add an outline stroke to the royal and white numbers/names to make this work. Either way, I look forward to the rest of this series.
