I've always been intruiged with how teams display retired numbers in different fashion. The league-wide retirement of #42 allows you to compare each teams' numbers fairly easily. As a Mets fan, I hate the way they do it. But why does the number matter when they dedicated the entrance of the ballpark to a guy who didn't ever play for the team? The Mets decision making process in regards to which numbers they choose to retire has always been a joke (no Piazza), so why would they do a good job with 42? Also they've put a new seating area in front of the numbers that totally obscure them. But I digress ... Moving on, how does your team immortalize Jackie Robinson's 42. Post pictures of 42 so we can see them all in one post.
Ok, so... I'm trying my hand at something new today, after another hiatus of posting concepts. I might get back to my redesign sometime, but I'll probably just start a thread of freelance concepts, I already have a couple lined up. But back to this, I find no interest at this time of posting jerseys, so I'll try to post some tickets of a few teams in a few leagues. I'll try to post a ticket from each of the tagged leagues in my next 4 posts here. I don't expect to start off well, but I'd like to build my craft like I did in jerseys (even if you aren't a fan of my jersey concepts, you'll have to admit they're a heck of a lot better now than they were when I started) http://3.bp.blogspot...tmenjersey1.png (logo credited to Six Zero) So I'll start with my favourite team and a game that I have my sights on going to: I'll let it speak for itself; however, in final editing, I accidentally made all of Kyle Turris vintage white, and I was kind of partial towards it. Should I be? Regular Turris: Semi up turris: C&C?
I can't seem to find the old thread we did this on, but a couple of years ago, we had a draft thread where people were able to build an all time baseball team. It was a lot of dorky fun, and I'd like to do it again, this time with a couple of rules changes. RULES We will be looking for 12-15 teams. To join the draft, you need to meet fantasy requirements (6 months, 500 posts) and be in good standing. You will be drafting a 25 man roster, so consider the time involvement. C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, LF, CF, RF, DH, C, 1B/3B, 2B/SS, 2 x OF, SP x 6, RP x 5 CHANGES FOR 2012 When selecting a player, you have to declare their spot on your team, and the team you are drafting them under. You are limited to one player per team. You can game this, obviously. Let's say you have selected Nolan Ryan as a Met, Jackie Robinson as a Dodger, and you want Mike Piazza. You can draft him as a Marlin. There is no minimum requirement for team loyalty for them to be drafted. Obviously, if a team maintains lineage, you can draft a player who played in the team's prior city. So you can draft Babe Ruth as a Brave, for example. A player needs 300 games at a position (check B-Ref) to qualify for that position. So who's in? Last time, it was team names being current or former major league or negro league teams. How about when you sign up, you choose a minor league team name, past or present, as your team?
Alright, on to Major League Baseball! As usual, I made a "chart" of what I think every single MLB team's best look is that they've ever had (with a few exceptions). I invite you guys to post your own complete league breakdown of your favorite looks for each team. Here are the rules: If the team has moved, you cannot use their prior location (i.e. Montreal Expos are out) This is only for a team's best overall look. It's not organized by my "favorite player." In fact, I don't care what players are on here. In some cases you'll find a team's icon used as the photo because that would likely be the most abundant photo found on Google. If I put a team's home uniform up, and you prefer the road/alternate version of the same era, that's fine. That's not something I'm going to change on here. The idea is simply to get the best uniform combo that any specific team has worn for at least one season. There are some teams that have, more or less, never changed their uniforms (i.e. the Yankees/Red Sox), and in that case, you can put any incarnation of their uniform that you want. They're basically all the same. However, if you feel the need to justify a particular version, feel free to do so. I think, overall, you'll find I prefer bright/vibrant colors, a traditional look, and uniforms that stand out. I'm not as worried about how they look if fans were to buy them as fashion accessories. Feel free to comment on my list, and make your own lists...AND PLEASE USE PHOTOS (Each of mine is about 300x400 pixels)!
