  1. Hey People, I Really Need Ideas For This 2 Make It Look Better Card so far Designed This Card For Drew Stubbs Himself! Can anyone help me make this card better. Remember This Is for Drew Stubbs.
  2. It's no secret that the Padres have one of the most confused sets in the MLB. The modern scripts clash with the traditional piping, number font, and color scheme to produce a poorly-conceived set. Here is my attempt to give the Padres an identity that is grounded in both the history of the club, and the history of baseball in San Diego. Logos: The first noted change is a switch to brown and orange. While the brown and gold is a good color scheme, I felt the brown and orange was a little more striking, and that orange was different enough from the Giants' shade for it to work. I've also used the 90's and 00's Swinging Friar as a modernization of the older one (that surprisingly turned up again in the latest redesign). The cap logo is the 1991-2003 interlocking logo, alongside the caps of the two fauxbacks. Home and Road: Using a traditional-looking script created by Matt Malinosky, I've been able to use the current piping style without it looking out of place. I also opted to use the sand color (unique in the MLB) and the cap logo (no "San Diego" script looked all that good with the home uniform) on the road uniform. The number font is a classic block variant. Alts: I added an orange-billed hat to the orange alt, and shifted the color balance on the brown alt to make the crest and number more visible. Home Fauxback Alts: These alts (which would only be worn a couple of times per season) are fauxbacks that would not only try to please the fans of brown and gold, but also honor the legacy of the PCL Padres (which the current Padres have tried to do). I converted the 1970s alt to a button-front jersey with belted pants to accommodate for player comfort. Hope you like them!
  3. So I am not a huge fan of the Padres uniforms as of late, they are not bad looking but I just am not that interested in them so I decided to try my hand at some Padres Uniforms. I have loads of MLB concepts that I will posting in a new thread shortly but I thought I'd like to get some C&C on my padres concepts. And to give credit where credit is due the Uniform template is based off of Tim O'Brien's template, I just added a few elements to the template. The Cleat and Batting glove templates are ones that I created and are original designs, not existing nike cleats and batting gloves. Thanks!
  4. Hi everyone, so I recently posted my first concept on here at and I've decided to make a post where I will post all my MLB concepts as they are ready. Like I stated in my previous post, the Uniform template used is based off of Tim O'Brien's template and I just added some elements. The cleats are a template I created myself and are an original design. I will start with the San Francisco Giants being that I am from San Francisco and they are my favorite team. Thanks for looking! Any C&C is appreciated. There will be many more teams to come!
  5. I've gotten to the section of the site where you can see teams' records with certain uniforms, and what days they wore them, but I have no idea how to find it now, no matter what I search. It's clearly not easy to get to, considering it isn't under resources either. Can anyone link me to it?
  6. Chicago Cubs Identity Refresh Part I - Logos Part II will be Uniforms, and will be posted later.
  7. I saw this image on the Potomac Nationals Facebook feed via DC Sports Bog: Feel free to flame away!
  8. The City of San Jose has filed suit against MLB concerning the Giants/A's territorial dispute. And Bud Selig somehow managed to avoid "being served" for three solid days. I've been following this for a few years now, and the situation has now reached a point of absurdity. If I owned the A's, I'd resolve this whole thing in three steps: 1. Buy the Brooklyn Cyclones and its stadium. 2. Hold a press conference, at which I'd remind everyone that the MLB Constitution expired on December 31, 2012, and that the territorial rights and limitations applicable under its provisions no longer apply, to the A's or any other team. 3. At the same press conference, announce that starting in 2014 the A's would be calling Brooklyn home. Or, if somehow MLB managed to get a court to block that move, that the team would relocate - to Tokyo... and area where no MLB or minor league team has, or has ever had, territorial rights. Think that'd pave the way for the A's to San Jose?
  9. OK - I'm starting a new topic because I've decided on my blog to present sRGB-optimized graphics as a whole rather than a season at a time. And since I'm finding myself jumping from team to league to sport all of the time, instead of posting an entire league for a particular season, I'll just pick a franchise and post everything I have for them. Of course for a lot of these teams, I won't have every logo or mark they've ever used, but I might have a significant collection of them to show. First up in this sort-of-new concept is the Minnesota Wild: I've got the Oklahoma City Thunder and Dallas Mavericks pretty much ready to go...let me know what other franchises you'd like to see and I'll try to prioritize them.
  10. Hi, I'll be doing something that many have done in the past, but with my spin on uniforms. Note that I am rather new to making concepts, so it will not look great, but all constructive criticism and tips for concept making are happily welcomed! I'll be starting with the AL East, and I should get some concepts out within a day or two. Thanks!
  11. So far this year, it looks like there will be quite a few all star game snubs. Seems like more than usual to me. This has all come about because I am an avid Cardinals fan and someone who just loves the game of baseball. All star game voting seems to be ridiculously flooded with bandwagon fans and people without an ounce of baseball knowledge who vote solely based on big names that they recognize but may not be having a good year at all. Pablo Sandoval comes to mind, who is leading his position in voting. Also it just irks me to no end that Yadi, who is a superior player to Posey, both offensively and defensively, is still behind him in voting. I understand the fans need to be involved but there are so many uninformed "fans" out there that it doesn't allow players like Matt Carpenter and Jed Lawrie to receive the recognition they deserve. In my opinion, the player with the best season, not the biggest name deserves the vote. I think the players and managers need to be the primary influence in voting. Am I way off base here? I'm curious to know if anyone shares my opinions or has a different opinion or a more detailed or different voting system. Sorry for the length of my rant and please let me know what you guys think.
  12. I designed the wordmark for the home jersey... using the same font for the road came off a little awkward, I think. Let me know if you feel the same... CC please
  13. We are always so critical when it comes how one team looks like another team (justifiably so many times). Whether it be vintage white, lace up sweaters in the NHL, the gray-crowned hats of the 1990s in MLB, the teal invasion of the 1990s, BFBS in the 2000s, the retro movement of the 2010s, or other trends that group together identites instead of separating them, we can talk about them at will for hours. After all, isn't the point of a uniform or logo to be able to identify one team from the other? This is the thread to celebrate how your favorite team is unique from the rest of the league (NHL, NFL, MLB, NBA, Division 1, Division 2, MLS, etc.). Still, as we are sure to see in this thread, your teams uniqueness might not exactly mean it's a good idea. Rules: 1) Any sport or league is fine. 2) Only include primary logos, alternate logos, and jerseys. Anniversary logos, stadium logos, and other miscellaneous things don't count. 3) It might be an identity trait that no other team in that league shares. Mistakes are fine and everyone is welcome to point them out when they happen, but that's the general rule for this thread. 4) Present and past uniqueness is welcome. However, keep present examples lined up in the same era. For example, the Baltimore Orioles are the only team wearing a white front-paneled cap from 2012 - Present. Obviously there have been white-paneled caps in the past, but for now, the Orioles are the only one. For past examples, keep in mind that the present counts with it. If something unique happened in the past but that characteristic is here in the present, you should not use that as an example. Theres the present, active characteristic, then there is the past. 5) Finally, you can include any characteristic, but please try not to include incredibly obvious example like "The Eagles are the only team in the NFL to have an eagle as a logo". Try to give it a little bit more effort than that. My Examples: Baltimore Orioles: Past: Team with the longest tenured run of not depicting a letter on their primary cap logo. (1964 - 2011) Present: Only team wearing a white front-paneled cap. (2012 - Present) Boston Red Sox: Past: Only team to have a certain color predominately appear on a home jersey, but be completely gone on a road jersey. (Red from 1979 - 1989) Present: Longest tenured active home script depicting the team name. I understand this is a little controversial, but I don't consider the small tweak made in the 1970s to be enough to make the earlier version a different script from the present-day, modern version.(1933 - Present) Chicago White Sox: Past: Only team to ever weart shorts in a major league game (1976) Present: Only team to not sport a color other than black, white, and the tones in-between. (1991 - Present) Cleveland Indians: Present: Only team to sport a cursive script at home and a block script (That's block, not a script with serifs on it) on the road. (2011 - Present) Detroit Tigers: Past: Only team to have a certain color predominately appear on a road jersey, but be completely gone on a home jersey. (Orange from 1972 - Present) Present: Longest tenured home chest script in MLB. (1934 - Present) Houston Astros: Past: Only team to depict a sports venue in their primary or alternate logos. (1965 - 1994) Present: Only team to have block scripts (no serifs) on both the home and road jerseys. (2013 - Present) Kansas City Royals: Past: Only team to wear a colored alternate uniform with a base color that does not appear in the hat at all. (Black, 2006) Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim: Past: Longest tenure of depicting a state in their primary or alternate logos. (California, 1970 - 1992) Present: Only team where a logo appears on an entire uniform four or more times (2012 - Present) Minnesota Twins: Present: Only team with a logo depicting an actual baseball player. (2002 - Present) New York Yankees: Oldest active cap in MLB. (1913 - Present) Longest tenured active road script in MLB. (1973 - Present) Only team to have a primary color appear in their logo, but not appear anywhere on their jerseys. (1947 - Present) New York Mets: Present: Only team to sport a cursive script at home and a serifed script on the road. Miami Marlins: Past: Only team to have a completely teal cap. Present: Only team to have 5 or more colors on a wordmark. Colorado Rockies: Past: Most alternate uniforms for one year (4 in 2005) Oakland Athletics: Present: Only team in MLB to primarily sport the color green in their logos and jerseys. Atlanta Braves: Past & Present: Only team to not have some form of baseball equipment in any of their logos (alternate and primary). There's plenty of examples in every sport. Have fun. Be sure to point out any mistakes I've made. Pictures are encouraged if you want.

    My MLB

    One Home Uniform per team. First: The AL WEST
  15. After receiving positive feedback from my update to Detroit's road set, I decided to expand this into an entire Tigers refresh. Let's get to the changes I've made and the reasons behind them: Navy has been darkened. Gives a crisper feel in contrast to the orange. The orange is a bit bolder as well, to serve as a more outstanding accent color specifically in the absence of white on the traditional road set. The home "D" on the jersey now matches the "D" on the cap. I felt this was a necessary change to maintain uniformity throughout the identity. Both road jerseys feature piping around the sleeve cuff and "V" neck, in contrast to the current piping down the center. I felt this showed a genuine contrast between the home and road sets, but not enough to break the uniformity of the entire identity. White has been eliminated from the primary road set. I never liked the "double stroke" look around the wordmark, nameplate and numerals on the current roads. It looks outdated and crowded. A simpler navy with orange stroke shows a modern, clean, respectful update to one of the league's most revered ball clubs. I've added a road alternate set, for use during away games only. The Tigers' home whites are the only jerseys to be worn at Comerica Field, to maintain the club's traditional appearance. The navy roads may be worn on Friday or Sunday road contests. This navy jersey is a recoloration of the updated roads, featuring orange piping on the sleeves and neck. All three jerseys feature no sleeve artwork. This is to further maintain the cleanliness of the entire identity, and leave room for patches dedicated to special occasions. That about does it! I'd love to hear feedback from you all. Thanks! (Edit: I noticed I accidentally omitted the MLB logo on the back of the jerseys. Please ignore that small note.)
  16. I saw a thread on here by Fox and it gave me the idea to give it a try for myself. The colors might be off because I did this on Microsoft Paint and the choice of color isn't the greatest. C&C will be appreciated! Here is the best in my opinion
  17. A while back, I'd posted a few Rockies alts & one-offs, one of which was a purple-heavy white alt. Decided to revisit it, as a full set this time, and as Buc had put it in that past thread, the Rockies should own purple. Not kinda wear it, like they do now, but OWN it. To that goes. home/away The scripts are based on what the Denver Bears wore in the 50s, with a rather distinct underscore. Though I don't really feel one way or the other towards the CR, I know most here aren't exactly fans of it. Thus, the C from the road script becomes the cap logo. And before I forget, far as colors, I dropped black and silver, replacing the latter with lavender. alts On your lefthand side is an 80s Nuggets tribute...complete with purple rainbow and Nuggets-style script. The other alt is a lavender vest.
  18. Below you'll see three button types on three different authentic MLB jerseys (Chicago Cubs Home, Arizona Diamondbacks Alternate, Chicago White Sox Alternate). Each one has slightly different buttons. The Cubs appear to use a "Cat Eye" shaped button. The White Sox use a traditional, pearl colored, "4-Hole" button. The D-Backs (at least in 1999) used same-color-as-jersey "4-Hole" buttons. So, I'm curious if anyone out there has any knowledge regarding buttons. Are they arbitrary? Are teams supposed to use specific ones? Why are some teams "customized" for the color of the jersey and others not? All three of these jerseys are made by Russell Athletic, so it's before Majestic took over. Thoughts?
  19. Bringing back the Flying Sock!
  20. Hey Guys I came up with this Detroit Tigers concept and I was hopping to work to make it better! Let me know what you think about it as is and what you think needs to be done to make it better. Let me Know!
  21. I designed this about 6 years ago. I've had these images sitting around on my computer as just an idea that I needed to get out of my head. I didn't know about this forum until a few days ago, so I'm happy to get some of these designs out from the dark recesses of my computer. So when the Oakland A's were threatening to move to another city (when haven't they the last 15+ years) there were discussions of where could the A's move. One of the cities mentioned was Las Vegas, but was dismissed due to all the issues with LV being a gambling town and that somehow corrupting MLB game. Anyways, I wanted to see what I could come up with if the A's did move to Las Vegas. Ultimately I looked at the defunct XFL Las Vegas team as a waste of a good theme. So I looked at using it for a baseball team. This is what I came up with: Home uniforms Away uniforms I went with a cream color, like the Giants, for the home "whites." The red is a brick red. The next major element is black, mostly found on the away jersey.
  22. New here and I'm pretty much geeking out on all the awesomeness. I've seen some logo redesigns, and was wondering if anyone had ever approached a team with their redesign? anyone go there?
  23. 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.

    Sports Tickets

    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?
