  1. Here are my American League concepts for this year. If you haven't seen the National League concepts yet be sure to go back and check 'em out. As with the NL concepts, I have essentially taken the current jerseys that the teams have now and made certain re-designs or adjustments that I think should be made. The template is the Wikipedia template, because I find that despite how flat that template is, it's the easiest to work with and re-color. The only thing I don't like is that there are no back views of the jerseys, but I may still redo all of these on a better template eventually. Each team is presented with the home and road jerseys, or any alternates and throwbacks worn in separate locations shown in both home and road formats. If a jersey is worn both at home and on the road it simply just has the pants split in color with the home white represented on the left side and the road grey on the right. Also in some cases where undershirts or stirrups are different colors at home or on the road, they are shown in those colors on the same sides too. In a few cases where a team wears an alternate hat in both places, the hat is placed in the middle of the two regular jerseys. As for the BP jerseys, they are only shown in the split format, as I feel that there is no need to wear different BP jerseys at home or on the road. Also, the design of the BP's is the pullover design from 2007-10, with the team's main color making up the body of the jersey and their secondary color under the armpits and down the sides. The reason for this is that I feel it is just a much simpler and better looking design than the crazy ones they have now. For the BP jersey logos, I have just the team's hat logo on the left breast, very reminiscent of the 80's and 90's BP jersey styles. The BP hats however are based off of the current design, and all are made to be a two-tone look with the bills being a different color than the crown. The descriptions for each team, in alphabetical order are as follows. The pictures of the jerseys are after that. Baltimore Orioles: The O's have a good clean, traditional looking design that hasn't changed that much over the years, but one that I felt was in need of some adjustments. First off, I've never been a fan of the cartoon bird hat logo. It just looks too childish and minor league to me. So I've replaced it with the more atomically correct bird logo. The overall home, road, and alternate jerseys are exactly the same otherwise. I've added a black road alternate jersey and included the early 80's jersey as a throwback, along with the mid 90's style as well. For BP, I simply used the "O's" logo on both the jersey and hat. Boston Red Sox: The Red Sox jerseys for the most part can't get anymore classic and traditional looking if they tried, yet the choice of color is what seems to make these jerseys work. Again starting with the hats, I've never understood why a team called he RED Sox wears BLUE hats, so I've replaced them with a more appropriate solid red hat with a blue "B" logo. The stirrups are instead solid red socks and the hanging socks logo that appears on the road jersey sleeve is also on the home jersey. The red piping from the home jersey had been added to the road jersey, and the shoes are also red as well. For a throwback, I used the mid 70's pullover jerseys and for BP I made it red with the blue "B" logo. I did use a blue hat for BP, however I made the bill red to keep the standard two-tone look of the hats. Chicago White Sox: The White Sox have another fairly traditional looking jersey that has remained pretty much the same over the past couple of decades. There wasn't much to do here except make the black socks that they wear for whatever strange reason white. (Again, another team that seems to be color blind.) The white sock logo in the black diamond that appears on the road and alternate jerseys has been added to the home jersey, and the throwback is pretty much the same mid 80's design that they wear now, however it has the more appropriate and authentic beltless, elastic waistband pants. The BP jersey is also pretty much the same but with silver side coloring and a silver bill to the hat. Cleveland Indians: The Indians I've always thought have a great design that looks primarily traditional and yet a little bit modern. The home jersey I feel was way better back in the 90's with red piping, so I've returned that to it. The current road jerseys with the arched block lettering is a very classic look as well, but I've added blue piping to it to match the style of the home jersey. I've always been a supporter of the Chief Wahoo logo and find no reason to replace it, yet I also like the block letter "C" logo that they returned to a few years back and I think both logos work well, so I've left the home and road hats the same. The alternate home jersey is pretty much the same but has the white piping returned to it, and I've made an alternate version of the road jersey to match. For throwbacks I used the red mid 70's jersey as I've always loved the color and lettering of that design, and the late 80's "Major League" era jersey as well. For BP, I've returned Chief Wahoo to the front to resemble the BP jerseys worn in the late 80's and made a more early 80's style look to the hat. (Remember that the splits in colors of the BP jersey is to resemble the jersey being worn both at home and on the road.) Detroit Tigers: There was absolutely nothing I felt that needed to be done to the Tigers due to how their jerseys have practically not changed at all in the course of their history, at least at home. While they may have a new "D" logo, I don't particularly care for it, so I left the old logo on the home jersey. The road jersey is 100% the same, while the BP jersey has the white "D" logo with orange sides. Houston Astros: The Astros are a team like the Padres who have gone through many different looks and styles in their history, which leaves a lot to choose from if you're basing them off the past. Being the traditionalist that I am, I love how the Stros returned to their original style design from the 60's. The home and road jerseys are exactly the same, however I've designated the orange alternate hats for regular home use and the solid blue hats for the road. An orange alternate jersey that I created actually a year before the ones they have now is for home games, while a matching blue alternate is for the road. Who can't love the wild and crazy "Tequila Sunrise" jerseys from the 70's as a throwback, and the late 90's horizontal lettering jerseys are also included, as I've always been a fan of those short lived jerseys. The BP jersey is exactly the same but I've replaced the hat with the two-tone style that they currently wear on the road. Kansas City Royals: The Royals have managed to keep a pretty traditional look going by changing very little, yet have managed to mix it up style-wise in colors and logos over the eras. Nothing needed to be done to the home and road jerseys, and the blue alternates are made to match. I've never like the use of powder blue in the Royals modern say color scheme, yet I think it's perfectly fine for back in the day so I included the mid 80's jerseys as throwbacks. The BP jersey however does utilize the powder blue in a subtle way with it on the sides hat bill. Los Angeles Angels: The Angels have had some interesting choices for colors and logos to their jerseys throughout their history, and with the exception of the horrible late 90's Disney era jerseys, I've liked them all. That being said, the modern versions are pretty much OK but like many other current threads I felt needed some slight adjustments. The home jerseys are pretty much the same but the road jerseys are themed in blue in order to utilize both the red and blue eras in Angels jersey history. The red home alternate jersey has been adjusted with blue lettering and numbers as opposed to red in order to provide a better visible contrast. A blue road alternate has been added to match, and the throwback jersey is from the late 70'/early 80's era. BP is red with the "A" logo and has the appropriate matching undershirts, belts, stirrups and shoes for home and road use. Minnesota Twins: The Twins have managed to keep a pretty good and classic look throughout their history, yet I really don't care for the versions they have now. The lack of pinstripes and gold trim on the current jerseys just doesn't appeal to me, so I've gone back to the previous pinstripe version hat home. The "TC" logo is on the home hats and the "M" logo is on the road, with both hats being solid blue. The matching blue alternates are pretty much the same, as well as the 60's throwback. Also I've added an early 80's throwback and made the BP jersey blue with the "M" logo and a two tone red and blue hat similar to the current road hat. New York Yankees: I have left out the Yankees, as I feel they have absolutely nothing at all that needs to be done to their 100% traditional and classic look. (That and the fact that the Wikipedia template was different for them for some reason and I couldn't get it to work the same way as all the rest. Oakland Athletics: The A's have had another plethora of styles and colors combinations to choose from, yet have managed to make their jerseys appear traditional and classic looking as well. The home and road jerseys are exactly the same, however the road hat is the same as the two-tone green and yellow home hat, as I just don't think the solid green looks as good. The alternate, throwback style jerseys they wear now are a great look, and I've added a white home version with green "A" logo. For a throwback I've included the early 70's era style jersey, a natural selection I think as far as the A's glory days go. The BP jersey is green with a yellow "A" logo, and has a white crowned hat with green bill that resembles the same type of hat from certain periods in the A's past. Finally, I've never understood why the A's have always worn white shoes, as I just don't think it's a good look, so I've made the shoes more a color appropriate green. Seattle Mariners: The Mariners current jerseys are another good looking set that appears much better than some previous designs and color choices they've had in the past. Home and road are exactly the same, and I've added a two-tone teal and blue hat to go along with the alternate teal jersey. A blue alternate road jersey has been added and the blue and yellow throwback style jersey is exactly the same. For BP it is blue with the "S" logo and the hat also has the "S" logo, as I've just never been a fan of the compass logo. Tampa Bay Rays: The Rays current design is way better in my opinion than the old Devil Rays design, and the only real changes I felt needed to be done is adjusting the color of the lettering on the blue alternate jerseys to a better contrasting powder blue. For BP, the "TB" logo is on both the jersey and hat, as I've never really liked the sunray logo by itself. Texas Rangers: The Rangers I felt have had a great design for a while now, however have made some unnecessary changes in the recent past. Why they decided to put "Texas" on both the road and home jerseys just doesn't make sense, as I'm a firm believer that while all teams don't have to have their city or state name on the rod, ALL home jerseys should have the team name on them. That being said, I returned the "Rangers" lettering to the home jerseys and recolored the theme red, as well as adding matching piping to both the home and road jerseys. A red alternate home jerseys has been added as well, and the late 70's and mid 80's jerseys make up the throwbacks. For BP, the "T" logo with the Texas flag is on the jersey, and the undershirts, belts, stirrups and shoes match accordingly at home or on the road. Toronto Blue Jays: I love how he Jays went back to their early 90's style jerseys a few years ago and I think there was absolutely nothing that needed to be done to them now, other than making the white paneled alternate hat the full time home hat and adding a blue alternate road jersey. Also the original early 80's jerseys are used as throwbacks and the BP jersey has the Blue Jay logo on it and the hat, as the maple leaf on the hat just doesn't make sense to me. I know they're from Canada, but having it as a hat logo and no other sign of a blue jay is very nondescript. That's all for the American League. Again, I invite your comments, suggestions, and constructive criticism. Thanks for reading and I hope everyone enjoys my concepts of both leagues.
  2. Every September, the White Sox celebrate the halfway point to St. Patty's Day by wearing green pinstripes. The last few years they've had a Christmas in July day, but they haven't worn any special unis to commemorate this. This year, I noticed a Halfway to Mardi Gras day on their schedule; again, I'm not expecting them to wear anything out of the ordinary for this game, though I hope I'm wrong. I decided to take a stab at how Christmas & Mardi Gras-themed ChiSox uniforms would look. For the Christmas uni, I decided to go with a recoloring of their 1983 set, creating an ugly sweater look. For the Mardi Gras set, I used the traditional Mardi Gras colors of purple and green, with just a touch of gold so as to avoid making it look like a Barney the Dinosaur day uni. C&C appreciated!
  3. Hey concept addicts! Welcome to a new baseball season! Last year I did a set of jersey concepts for each MLB team and what I thought should be the best re-design or adjustments that should be made to each one. Some of you liked them and I had a great time making them, so I've gone back and done some more designs and made a few tweaks to the ones I already had, as well as adding many different throwbacks. The template is still the Wikipedia template, but I find that as flat as that template is, it's the easiest to work with and re-color. The only thing I don't like is that there are no back views of the jerseys, but I may still redo all of these on a better template eventually. Each team is presented with the home and road jerseys, or any alternates and throwbacks worn in separate locations shown in both home and road formats. If a jersey is worn both at home and on the road it simply just has the pants split in color with the home white represented on the left side and the road grey on the right. Also in some cases where undershirts or stirrups are different colors at home or on the road, they are shown in those colors on the same sides too. In a few cases where a team wears an alternate hat in both places, the hat is placed in the middle of the two regular jerseys. As for the BP jerseys, they are only shown in the split format, as I feel that there is no need to wear different BP jerseys at home or on the road. Also, the design of the BP's is the pullover design from 2007-10, with the team's main color making up the body of the jersey and their secondary color under the armpits and down the sides. The reason for this is that I feel it is just a much simpler and better looking design than the crazy ones they have now. For the BP jersey logos, I have just the team's hat logo on the left breast, very reminiscent of the 80's and 90's BP jersey styles. The BP hats however are based off of the current design, and all are made to be a two-tone look with the bills being a different color than the crown. Anyway, here's my concept descriptions for each team in alphabetical order, followed by the pictures of the jerseys: Arizona Diamond Backs: I have no idea what Arizona was thinking coming out with the new designs that they have now. In my opinion, they're way too wild, have way too much going on, and just don't look very MLB-like. If you ask me, I think they look more like a college team's jersey. That being said, I kept the D-backs in the design and format of their previous jerseys, but also based it heavily off of their early 2000's design. The home jersey is like that design with just the "A" on the left breast and the hat with the snake "D" logo. The road jersey is pretty much identical to the previous one, but with the new "Arizona" script on it, which is the one thing I do like about the new jerseys. The alternates are also basically the same type that they previously had, but with the "A" again replacing "D-backs" on the red ones, and only red undershirts and stirrups with both. The throwback is the iconic purple pinstripes design from the early 00's and the BP jersey has the snake "D" as the logo. Overall, I like Arizona's colors from both era's, but I don't think that the two should have ever been combined. Atlanta Braves: The Braves are one of those teams that have had some of the most traditional and time tested jerseys in the game, and in my opinion there was absolutely nothing that needed to be done with the regular home and roads, except keep the blue hat with red bill on both, as I just don't like the all blue hat. I really don't like the current alternates either, as I don't feel that they have the same traditional look as the regular home and road jerseys, so I made a pair that mimic the other two more closely. The home alternate is a brighter shade of red with white script lettering and piping, as well as a matching red hat with blue bill and white "A" logo to match the jersey script. The road alternate is the same shade of blue as the regular team hats, with white script lettering that I think makes for a much better contrast than blue on blue. The jersey also has a matching all blue hat with adjusted "A" logo to match the jersey script. For the throwbacks, I can't help but love the early 70's Hank Aaron era design with feathers on the sleeves and white front panel hats, so I included both versions for at home and the road. The BP jersey has the alternate version of the "A" logo with the tomahawk attached to it. Chicago Cubs: Oh, what can I say about my hated rival Cubs. Simply that their jerseys like the Cards, are also very traditional and classic looking, and really needed nothing to be changed on either the home or road jerseys. The alternate jersey is pretty much the same too, minus the National League logo on the right sleeve, which I think is totally unnecessary. I couldn't really think of a decent throwback to use, as the Cubs design really hasn't been all that much different for the most part in each era. For a BP jersey I made it with the regular red hat "C" logo. Cincinnati Reds: Another team that has had a lot of crazy designs over the years but has toned it down and become way more traditional in the recent past is the Reds. Not much to really be done here. The home, road, and alternate jerseys are exactly the same, except I replaced the black shoes with red and gave all three jerseys solid red hats, as I feel that black just does not look good on a team whose name is the "Reds." The throwback jersey is the iconic "Big Red Machine" jersey of the 70's. (This one does have black shoes however to make it fully authentic.) The BP jersey has the same white version of the team logo as the alternate jersey. The BP hat has a white crown with a red bill, a sort of throwback design based off of the white crowned hats that the Reds wore at different times in their history. Colorado Rockies: The Rockies have another great traditional look that I felt needed no adjustment at home or on the road. The alternates however are a little different. Being one of the only teams to feature purple as a primary color, I gave the Rocks a solid purple alternate jersey to be worn at home, along with a matching purple hat with black bill. The road alternate is pretty much the same as the black alternates they wear now. I dropped the vest jersey because I just can't stand the vest look in the MLB, as I feel its another design that should be left in college or little league. Not really any place for a throwback here either, as Colorado has had pretty much the same design throughout their short history. The BP jersey has the interlocking "CR" hat logo on it. Miami Marlins: In my opinion, the Marlins had one of the best and classic looking designs in the league prior to their 2012 rebranding. Why they decided to ditch the teal and more atomically correct fish for orange and stylized fish design I'll never understand. However, it's not like their current design wasn't entirely re-workable. For the home jersey, I took the "Marlins" script from the alternate orange jerseys and made the lettering black. (It makes way more sense to have the team name at home and it's city name on the road.) The road and black alternate jerseys are both the same, however I designated the orange for home and the black for the road. I really like the rarely seen orange alternate hats so I've included them for use both at home and on the road. The BP jersey has the same "M" hat logo. Los Angeles Dodgers: Along with the Yankees, Cards, and Red Sox, the Dodgers look is as traditionally classic and iconic as you can get. I just think they've done a little too much with it in recent years. Mainly the use of the "LA" logo on the left sleeve, which I think is just excessive to have it on both the hat and sleeve, so I removed it. I also added a blue alternate jersey to be worn at home, and kept the throwback style road jersey with blue sleeve stripes. The BP jersey has the same "LA" hat logo. Milwaukee Brewers: The Brewers have managed to stick with a fairly conservative and traditional look for the past several years. Nothing I felt needed to be done with the regular home and road or alternate blue jerseys. I love the new inclusion of the retro "ball and glove" logo on the alternate hats so I've kept that, as well as put the same logo on the BP jersey. The pair of throwback jerseys are from the early 80's, which I think is the best looking era from the Brewers past. New York Mets: The Mets are yet another team with a great traditional and classic look, especially now that they've dropped black from their color scheme. For the most part, there really was nothing at all that I felt needed to be done with any of the regular home and road or alternate jerseys, so I left them exactly the same. All I did was add a pair of mid 80's throwbacks, an era that I think best represents the Mets past. The BP jersey has the regular "NY" hat logo on it. Philadelphia Phillies: Again, the Phillies are way too traditional and classic looking to need to have anything done with them, however I did add an alternate red jersey based off of this year's spring training jersey, but with white lettering to make it show up better. The 70's/80's throwbacks are I think the best remembered era of the Phils history, and the BP jersey has the simple "P" hat logo. Pittsburgh Pirates: Same deal with the Pirates. Not much needed to be done here aside from adding a yellow alternate jersey and hat to go along with the current black one, and while I like the new late 70's throwback jersey the Pirates have decided to use this year, I've replaced it with the pinstripe version from that era in order to make it look different from the alternate jersey and kept the early 70's version. The BP jersey is pretty much the same as what is worn by the team now. San Diego Padres: The Padres are perhaps the one team in MLB that have had somewhat of an identity crisis over the course of their history. Having so many different looks and eras to choose from, I decide to go with a hybrid of types by taking the new lettering from the current style jerseys and coloring them in the original brown and yellow scheme. The home jersey has the new "Padres" script, as I just don't think the "SD" logo works as well. The road jerseys have the same "San Diego" lettering, and the brown alternate jerseys are pretty much the same design as the current blue ones. I've kept the yellow front paneled throwback style hat as an alternate and added two yellow stripes to the stirrups. For throwbacks, I included the short lived mid 70's design which I always thought had a great script to it, as well as both of the jerseys worn by the team in the early 80's. The BP jerseys have the same "SD" hat logo as the one alternate. San Francisco Giants: The Giants have another traditionally classic look that works fine as it is, but also have some great designs from their past that still work as well. Keeping the regular home and road jerseys the same, I adjusted the black alternate jersey by changing the color in the lettering and piping to white for a better visual contrast. The sleeve stripes on both alternates have been adjusted slightly for a better matching order as well, and I also added a white version of the alternates. The road "SF" alternate I think works just fine as it is, and the BP jersey has the regular "SF" hat logo on it. Since the alternate jerseys so closely resemble the jerseys from the late 70's/early 80's I felt that there was no need for a throwback. St. Louis Cardinals: For my hometown Cardinals, I felt that with the same traditional, classic and iconic look like so many other teams, there was nothing that needed to be done on the outset, but there were a few adjustments that I felt needed to be made. The first addition is red stripes on the pants, similar to the Cards jerseys from the 60's, and also the same stripes added to the sleeves. The road jersey has the "St. Louis" script lettering from the current Saturday alternates on it, while those jerseys have had the lettering replaced with just the redbird logo on the left breast, very similar to the jerseys worn by the team in the late 20's. I also made an identical red version of the alternate for use both at home and on the road. For throwbacks, I picked what I thought were the three most iconic looking eras of past Cardinals jerseys, the 40's and 80's, and the BP jersey has the white "STL" hat logo. Washington Nationals: The Nationals have a look that I feel is traditional, but I just don't like the cursive "W", as I think it looks too much like the Walgreen's "W" logo. That being the case, I have taken the rarely seen "Nationals" script lettering and put it on the home jerseys, while replacing the "W" on all hats with the also seldom seen "DC" logo and made them solid red. For alternates, I made a blue patriotic home jersey with the stars and stripes "DC" logo, as well as a blue, red billed hat with the same logo. A red road alternate has the "Washington" script logo on it and the BP jersey has the white "DC" hat logo. Well, that's it for the National League. I invite your comments, suggestions, and constructive criticism. I will post the American League in a few days. Thanks for reading and I hope everyone enjoys these!
  4. Nothing groundbreaking here, just a cleaned up Dodgers set with a few alternate options. Included are a powder blue alternate for use at home or on the road, a cream colored home alternate, and a faux-flannel road alternate.

    MLB SuperCard

    Not sure if anyone plays the IOS apps NHL or WWE SuperCard, but I have always wanted to work on a project that would bring all the goodness of those games to my favorite sport, Major League Baseball! My friend and I had worked on a template to make "cards" for this planned game...which look like this... The template took a bit to make, but changing the players, logo and font around don't take that long. Around 10 player cards are done so far, I will post more later. Heres a little background on the planned internet game that would revolve around these cards; There are five tiers of cards Basic - the lowest level, your bench players, minor leaguers...you get the gist Rare - guys who aren't that bad, but maybe not all that good either Ultra Rare - the middle tier, there are some solid players in this group Epic - the really good players, consistent talents (the card pictured above is in this tier) Legendary - these guys are awesome, the stars of the game These cards are acquired for "playing" games, collecting cards, achieving new ranks and taking part in tournaments and contests! Then there are these numbers on the cards... CTL (control), BRK (break) and VEL (velocity) are the three stats that pitcher cards use to get the hitters out. Im not going to go into the actual formula for calculating, because this is a design board. I AM LOOKING FOR HELP WITH THIS PROJECT, IF YOUD BE INTERESTED IN HELPING ME MAKE CARDS, PLEASE LET ME KNOW! The psd file is here http://www.mediafire.com/download/5btf0p8y55nme9y/card.psd Cheers!
  6. Decided to tackle a concept logo for the 2017 MLB All Star Game which will be in Miami. Had some ideas to make it glitzy with an over the top Miami-style. But eventually led to a simpler clean logo.
  7. Concept logo for the MLB All-Star Game in Washington, DC.
  8. A Just for fun topic on the iconic jerseys in any sport that you consider "must own" and that you would buy/already bought regardless if you like the team or not. Here are a few in my opinion: 1: Warriors "The City" gold unis. 2: NY Rangers Lady liberty 3: Astros tequila sunrise 4: Chargers powder blue 5: Any of the Hartford Whalers Jerseys Share yours below!
  9. What are your favorite logos or uniforms?Feel free to share them here!
  10. NFL: Best current helmet: Bengals (edging out Giants) Best current color set: Broncos orange (a lot of people will disagree with this, and that's okay; Packers, Chiefs, Raiders, and Vikings all very strong too) Best current white set: Giants white over grey (edging out Colts all-white) Best current non-throwback alternate: Texans red over white Best currently-worn throwback: Rams royal over yellow Best 2015 Color Rush: Rams yellow Worst current helmet: Jaguars (no other team in the same zip code) Worst current color set: A fierce competition for this dishonor. Buccaneers' red-over-pewter edges out the others. Jags' all-black just a stone's throw away. Worst current white set: Browns' white over brown; Browns' white over white comes in second Worst current non-throwback alternate: 49ers' all-black, easily Worst currently-worn throwback: Steelers' bumblebees Worst 2015 Color Rush: Jaguars' whatever-they-called-it Most blandly inoffensive and mediocre overall look: Dolphins MLB: Best current main cap: Giants' orange interlocking SF on black cap (edging out Yankees) Best current white set: Yankees Best current grey set: Cubs (hate the Cubs, but wish they'd wear grey more and the blue shirts less) Best current color set: Mariners' teal over white with navy blue caps Best current non-color alternate: Phillies' cream jerseys with blue caps Best currently-worn throwback: Either Phillies' cream jerseys (if it's eligible for both honors) or Brewers' ball-in-glove set Worst current main cap: Any of the Diamondbacks' gradient caps will do Worst current white set: Diamondbacks' teal-free main versions Worst current grey set: Not a lot of truly bad greys these days. Maybe the Twins or Brewers or (much as it pains me to say it) the Reds. Worst current color set: Marlins' black over grey (edging out Marlins' black over white) Worst current non-color alternate: Not a whole lot to choose from. Maybe Mets' non-pinstriped whites. Would pick the Angels' red-sleeved vests if they still wore them. Worst currently-worn throwback: Can't really find a bad one. I'll put this up for debate, I guess. Most blandly inoffensive and mediocre overall look: I'd have said Padres before their recent redesign. Now I'll have to go with the Rays, although I like their fauxback and their light-blue alternate. I'll put up my NBA and NHL picks later.
  11. As usual, feel free to critique this latest sports concept. On a special note, this project came about due to the feedback of the previous project I've worked on these very forums. The project in question? Miami SC/96 - MLS Design. Although I decided to continue with a turtle theme, I've decided to change the sport to baseball rather than work on another soccer team. Also, while I'll continue to work on the details for this personal project, the logo is for the most part finished since I'll be working on other art projects in the future.
  12. What are some of your favorite sports cards designs? Here are some of mine: NBA: 1. 1994-95 Fleer The base cards had the player's name in one team color against a splash of the team's other color. Very shiny. Players from the Hornets and Suns looked especially cool; here's one of Charlotte's Darrin Hancock: The inserts were also very well-designed. I'll post more images later. 2. 1991-92 Skybox Definitely the most abstract card designs I can think of. Want MJ? Here he is: How about Moses Malone? I'm in a hurry, but I'll get to more later.
  13. Any team uniform match up that was not an eye sore to people. I got one. My favorite was when the Rams played the Bills when the Bills had either White or Red helmets during the 1980's and 1990's. I think 2002's match up with the two stunk badly. But this one is far superior because both wearing Royal Blue, but one either wears Red or Yellow Gold! Gawd damn, the red socks and the blue socks with yellow trim is a sweet match up too. My all-time favorite was when the Rams during the late 1970's to 1980's used to face the Buccaneers when the Bucs don the Orange uniforms. Although the Rams like wearing White against the Buccaneers! Seeing Royal Blue and Yellow Gold vs Florida Orange and Red just looks too SWWWWWWWWWWWWWEEEEEEEEETTTTTTT!!! And one of the favorites was when the Pittsburgh Steelers wore their 1960's uniforms vs the Giants. I wish it was the Bills in their 2011 uniforms with the White helmets, but the Giants is a close contender to the Bills color palette, minus the grey pants. I love the Black and Yellow vs Red, White, and Blue theme. Fits even when the Steelers play the Giants or the Bills. Then finally my pick is the Jets 1980's look vs the Houston Oliers. I love when they face each other. The Columbia Blue, Red, and White clashing with the Kelly Green and White is another one of my favorite match ups. Just sweet looking. VERY SWEET! MAN, I USED TO HAVE A MAN CRUSH ON SEEING THIS COLOR COMBO MATCH UP! But when you look at the Los Angeles Rams, Tampa Bay Buccaneers 1970's look, New York Jets 1980's look, Buffalo Bills 1970's and 1980's look, and Pittsburgh Steelers 1960's look, it just makes the other teams colors look good sometimes. There are some eye sores that make those five I named stand out.
  14. The genesis of this actually came while I was working on a Hartford Whalers concept at work. I kept trying to play with the W to become a harpoon but I couldn't get the H right. Then I flipped the harpoon and got a trident and the rest as they say is history. The new Primary Logo brings back the Trident modified for a 2016 look. The Gold used is lifted straight from the 1977 Cap Logo, while the new shade of blue is 50% the classic royal blue and 50% the Mariners current shade of blue. The two letter set up for the primary logo got me thinking to have two different caps for home and road (and attached is a concept for the alt cap that uses the classic colors). Naturally S is on the road cap and the Trident-M is on the home. The Script logo is an updated version of the wordmark used from 1977-1979. The font used is called "Ravencroft" which I chose for mix of sharp points and wavy edges the letters (particularly how the middle of the M comes to a point and how the R and N mirror the I grabbed my attention even though playing with the M to make a trident didn't work) And last but not least are the wordmarks for the uniforms which I'm still working on. I adjusted the road grey color to be more blue compared to the current greys which have a green tint to them. There will be at least one alt jersey in royal or powder blue. As always C+C is always welcome and I hope you enjoy this rebrand as much as I did making it! Cap designs, uniforms and MLB Required Roundel Logo coming in due time!
  15. Saw this the other day. It sounds like something that has been talked about a lot here and could provide some insight as to an aesthetic direction the Brewers might be taking. http://mweb.cbssports.com/mlb/eye-on-baseball/25463086/rejoice-brewers-bring-back-glove-logo-for-alternate-uniforms-in-2016 Feel free to post any more that come up.
  16. I really like crossover series' such as these and it's been a while since I've seen one posted. I've been sitting on this topic for a while; working and tweaking jerseys over the past few months so that lose motivation halfway through. Each team already has a home, road, and at least 1 alternate set done with some exceptions for new or unusual number fonts. Some of the inspiration for these came from threads by McCarthy and Christian Legault so I want to thank them ahead of time if some aspects are similar. I'm a hockey fan first so some of the more traditional baseball elements might not be exactly right. Most teams take cues from local MLB teams while adding each NHL teams own spin on it. Without further ado, here is Anaheim to start off the Pacific Division. I will be adding new jerseys, like Anaheim's orange third, and throwbacks from time to time or at the end. C&C is encouraged if there is anything should be changed for this set or the league as a whole.
  17. In cities with more than 1 team, numbers are going to be shared by players. What is the best number worn in each city? It may not be the best players of all time, but some really good ones or fan favorites. For example, in Los Angeles, #32 seems to be worn by some of the best players to ever play for the Kings, Dodgers, Lakers, Clippers, and Raiders. Jonathan Quick, Sandy Koufax, Magic Johnson, Blake Griffin, and Marcus Allen have won a combined 11 championships, 7 finals MVPs, 5 season MVPs, and 31 All-Star Appearances as well as many other league specific accolades.

    Here's my take on some primary logos for MLB. Some are mashups, tweaks and an overhaul.
  19. It's been a long long time since I've done this, but I've really been itching to get back at this stuff! I'll just get right into it with the rules: Rules: In my series, I'll be tweaking every MLB team, going alphabetically in the AL first, then the NL. The rules for each MLB team consist of the following: 1) 3 Caps 2) 1 pair of socks 3) 3 Pants 4) 1 Belt 5) 1 Long-sleeved undershirt 6) 3 Short-sleeved undershirts 7) 6 Non-buttoned "game vests" (3 for home, 3 for road) 8) 3 Logos Home uniforms feature white, off-white, or gray game vests. Road uniforms have colored game vests. Pants can be also be colored. Teams: 1) Baltimore Orioles Baltimore Orioles Background Image Credit: pxleyes.com / ("http://www.pxleyes.com/images/contests/city-bw/fullsize/Camden-Yards-4e41903f0f411_hires.jpg") For the Orioles, I kept everything a hopefully balanced mix of modern and retro. I also wanted the two main colors to have about a 55% orange and 45% black color balance. The primary logo features the current bird perched upon the "Orioles" script. The secondary logo has the "O's" logo inside the classic roundel. The tertiary logo is a slightly tweaked version of the retro oriole head logo. Too lazy to describe the 6 uniforms. Just check em out and provide C&C if you want
  20. This is kind of a complex topic, and I've sort of tried to go over this before without much success, so bear with me here. Sometimes, when a team switches logos and brings out a whole new uniform set, you think, "Oh, well, the old one was dated, or they did everything they could with it, or there wasn't much they could've done with it that they didn't do." (For that last one, think of the current Rams set. Gold pants were nice, tried a metallic-gold jersey and it was bad, blue is too dark to do much with, overall it's a limited design and scheme.) Others, you feel like they could've changed things up a bit without changing the logo. So what are some directions you would've liked to see teams take had they not changed their logos? I'll give a few examples of mine: 1. NY Jets: Keep the kelly-green helmet with the black facemask. Add neon yellowish-green as an accent color. Maybe have a set that's kelly green jersey, neon pants. (Please don't stop reading because of this.) 2. Seattle Seahawks: I always felt they should have a green alternate with their original logo. They had such a classy look going and could've kept the same basic template but switched some colors around. 3. Montreal Expos: Seeing the thread about them made me think. If they were still in Montreal, you know they'd be bringing back the paneled caps, racing stripes, and powder-blue alts in some capacity, likely just as a throwback or alternate. Still, I feel like they could've found a way to make things interesting (they looked pretty dull by the end of their time in Montreal) without going backwards. Perhaps more prominent use of red? 4. Atlanta Falcons: Black 1990s helmet, red jersey, grey pants. 5. Florida Marlins: Teal alternate jersey, for crying out loud! It was criminal how much they de-emphasized teal in the ten years or so before the switch. 6. Arizona Diamondbacks: Get teal and copper more involved in color scheme; de-emphasize black a good bit and purple somewhat. 7. Utah Jazz (1996-2002-ish logo): Copper alternate jersey. 8. Denver Nuggets (1990s color scheme): Find some way to make the overall look less template-y and emphasize the unique color scheme. 9. "Motre Dame" Brewers: While the logo was generic, I always felt the color scheme and uniform set were underrated. They should've gone green-heavy with it IMO. Okay, that's enough of my rambling. Your rambling is sought, people.
  21. Looking at the new Diamondbacks uniforms, I couldn't help noticing that the light teal they use in their (non-throwback) alternates looks really cool, and would go great as a secondary color with their dark red should they eventually choose to go in that direction. Overall, though, the set looks awful---with striping that stops abruptly, and tacky-looking "sublimation" (actually mostly just bad gradients IMO). That got me thinking---what were other awful looks that had one super cool feature? Like, the Bengals' current unis look awful but their helmet's a classic. So, two-ish questions: 1. Do you agree with me about the Diamondbacks looking good in red, black, and teal? 1A. Would they look better demoting the black to tertiary and promoting the teal to primary? AND 2. What are some other examples of terrible sets with awesome (not redeeming, but still awesome) features? Mods, feel free to move this if there's already an appropriate thread for these musings.
  22. READ THIS IT IS IMPORTANT (ATLEAST TO ME): Before you request that I do your favorite MLB player, remember to post C&C. Not just A small 3 word post like "Nice concept, man!", but something that can help me make this concept series better. It doesn't have to be anthing super long, but it should be good enough to where it gets the point across clearly and will help me improve as a designer. Please be insightful on what you say, and if you see mistakes, point them out in a constructive manner. If you a harsh, that's fine, but please try to not be rude about it. And know what you're asking me when you request a player(unless I've already done the player). You are requesting that I take time out of my day, just for you, in order so you can feel entitled to more things on the boards. So know that if I don't get to you in an hour, don't get mad and quit looking at the concept or keep requesting until I post. That is not only a disservice to me, but yourself and the Concept forum as well. Now onto the concept: First up, Anthony Rizzo C&C​ APPRECIATED!
  23. What are the worst all-time games you can think of, uniform-wise? I can't imagine any worse than this, if you count preseason:
  24. A little over a year ago, I made a concept of the modern day Philadelphia Athletics. In the thread, I mentioned I wanted to do a series of an "alternate universe" featuring teams who had stayed instead of moves (Or moved instead of stayed). Unlike some alternate universe threads, I'm not going to follow my own alternate universe ideas, just ideas for teams who may have relocated (Or not relocated) Included as a teaser before I get very into this is the home uniform for the 1980s Tampa White Sox. The Tampa area was a much-rumored spot for relocation throughout the late 80s. The White Sox were one of the rumored teams.
  25. Mods, feel free to lock up until October 5th.
