  1. Welcome to MLB: The Defunct Series! After spending last year producing Project 32’s myriad of redesigns and tweaks, I figured that I should apply the same philosophy to the defunct teams of the majors. Much like its predecessor, each team will have two to three parts. The first part will be the main concept, the one that I’m happiest with presenting/matches the historical trajectory of the team’s aesthetics. The other will be an alternate take, in which I can explore different identities and shirk brand equity to have a little fun. I’ve also got plans to include several attempted relocations, with a focus on deals that fell through at the last minute/pose the most visual interest. These will not have alternate takes since they are essentially alternate takes in their own right. The releases will go by chronology, starting with the Boston Braves. The only one out of order is the last one since the short lifespan of the said team leaves their visual history up for more speculation.

  2. Hi everyone! I hope you're all staying safe and healthy during this strange, uncertain time. Since I've had more time on my hands than usual, I decided to revisit an extensive MLB project I began a while back. The premise is simple: What if each MLB team (except, of course, the Yankees) began adopting alternate uniforms starting in the 1960s? Rather than just choose an arbitrary year, I decided on 1963 as my specific starting point as that was the year the Kansas City Athletics introduced their solid green and gold uniforms. Some designs will be inspired by teams' era-appropriate batting practice jerseys, while others will be completely original. Also, teams with co-dominant colors (such as the Pirates and their black and gold) will get multiple alternates, one for each color. I tried to be as comprehensive as possible, but if I neglect to include a particular look from any team's post-1963 history--no matter how brief--please do not hesitate to point it out. I briefly considered posting teams by era, but given how convoluted that would become (some teams might introduce an alternate in the '70s and wear it for 20 years, while others might have one for only two or three seasons in the '60s, for instance) I ultimately decided to just go team by team in alphabetical order. Since the D-Backs were born in the era of alternates, we'll start instead with the Braves. C&C appreciated! BRAVES HOME ALT (1966-71) BRAVES ROAD ALT (1966-71) BRAVES HOME/ROAD ALT (1972-75) BRAVES HOME ALT (1976-86) BRAVES ROAD ALT (1976-86) BRAVES HOME ALT (2000s)* *The Braves introduce a gold home alt in the 2000/2010s because why not? I think it looks cool. I didn't do any late '80s-early 2000s alternates as they would look more or less the same as their current alternates. C&C appreciated!
  3. National League North: CHC | CIN | MIL | STL Pacific: COL | LAD | SD | SF Atlantic: MON | NYM | PHI | PIT South: ATL | CHA | MIA | WSH American League North: CWS | CLE | DET | MIN Pacific: ANA | OAK | POR | SEA Atlantic: BAL | BOS | NYY | TOR South: ARI | HOU | KC | TEX Two teams switch leagues (Arizona to AL; Tampa Bay to NL), two expansion teams are added (Portland in the AL; Charlotte in the NL), one team relocates (Tampa Bay subsequently relocates to Montreal as agreement to switch leagues) and MLB goes to a 4-team, 4-division format for each league... Just a preview of what lies ahead with this series:
  4. We have the Players in the "Wrong" Uniforms thread and within that thread I've seen a few "Right Team, Wrong Uniform" entries. I thought I'd separate the two, because it is an interesting topic of its' own. Here are a few to start the thread off with ... Charles Barkley, Preseason 1992, Phoenix Suns Matt Hasselbeck, 2001, Seattle Seahawks Jeff Bagwell, 1992, Houston Astros.
  5. Okay so just to start off, I have no design sense whatsoever. So now that that's out of the way, let's get to the concept. I'm not really bored as much as I am lazy under the COVID-19 stuff, so I have forced myself to try to do something. I guess I'll try to design logos or something because why not. First, let's come up with a quirky and cool name. Under quarantine... what rhymes with quarantine... sixteen! Like a bracket! Because March! ..Right? Anyway, I decided I'd make concept logos for each major league, four for the NBA, NHL, MLB, and NFL, but I also want to do soccer, so throw in two for the MLS, making it eighteen. You may be thinking, that doesn't work for a bracket, and you're smart and you know that's right. But I came up with this brilliant idea at one in the morning, and when I woke up, I had already made a logo and posted it on Instagram so oh well let's make it up as we go. (why is the process of uploading images so strange?) Anyway, as you can see, I am very mature and professional. I tried to turn the toilet paper roll into a lowercase "q" (kinda like the Flyers with the "p"), but I don't think I really succeeded. I have mostly branded the series with just a single roll, and sports can be switched out by shoving them in the middle. I compiled a list of 36 cities and took to my Instagram and polled the poop out of the 12 people that follow me until it was down to the 18 logos to be made (if I stay motivated that long)
  6. Hello everyone! Due to this quarantine, I have decided to start back up a Baseball Concept Uniform Tread! Each team will have at least one home alternate and road alternate uniform, and one spring training uniform. C&C is always appreciated, so please give your feedback! I will start with the American League then move to the National League. I hope you enjoy! BALTIMORE ORIOLES: The Orioles have some of the nicest uniforms in the league, in my opinion. The black and orange work really well together. I wanted to make the Orioles a primary orange team(which is what they should always be), so I added a orange hat to the road uniform, road alternate uniform 1, and the Spring Training uniform. I added another black uniform using the "O's" logo, maybe a jersey they wear on special occasions on the road. HOME: ROAD: HOME ALT: ROAD ALT 1: ROAD ALT 2: SPRING TRAINING:
  7. As some of you may recall, a few years ago I put together a simulated league of past World Series champions, to try and settle the argument of which was the best MLB team of the World Series era. And I was as surprised as everyone else when the all-time champions of Major League Baseball turned out to be... the 1997 Florida Marlins. Well, with the real sports world mostly shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and a few more teams having laid claim to inclusion in such an event in the years since that first ATCL, I've decided now is the perfect time to revisit, and try to improve upon, the concept. So, today, I hereby announce the Second Edition of the MLB All-Time Champions' Leagues. I am using Out Of The Park 21 to create and run the ATCL. Here are the basics: 36 teams overall (18 each representing the American and National Leagues, in three six-team divisions each) Designated hitter in American League only Regular season: 162 games per team, schedules weighted toward divisional play, with no interleague play Postseason: Eight teams (all division winners + one wild-card team per league) qualify; all rounds best-of-seven series I have also revamped the eligibility rules. To be considered for the ATCL, a team must have met one of the following criteria (listed in priority order for purposes of determining qualifying priority): Won a World Series as (a) the only World Series championship team, or (b) the team with the best record among two or more World Series championship teams, in its franchise's history. (For ATCL purposes, relocated franchises count separately; e.g. the Brooklyn Dodgers and Los Angeles Dodgers count as two separate franchises. Franchises operating in the same market under more than one name, e.g. the New York Highlanders/Yankees, count as a single franchise.) Won a World Series following a regular season with a win percentage of 0.617 (the equivalent of winning 100 games in a 162-game season) or higher. (Applies only to franchises that already have another ATCL-eligible team under criterion 1 above. Such teams representing the same franchise must be at least eight seasons apart. For franchises with clusters of two or more teams qualifying under this criterion within an eight-year span, only the team with the best regular-season record within that span shall be eligible for invitation.) Finished a regular season with a win percentage of 0.617 or higher without winning that season's World Series, in a franchise that has never had a World Series champion. Special cases: 1919 Cincinnati Reds: Given that (1) the Reds organization and players themselves were not implicated in the "Black Sox" scandal beyond being its unwitting beneficiaries, and (2) the 1919 team is otherwise ATCL-eligible under criterion 1 above, the 1919 Reds are deemed eligible for the ATCL. 1940s St. Louis Cardinals: The Cardinals won three World Series between 1942 and 1946, with the 1942 team having the best regular-season win percentage of the three. However, the 1942 and 1944 championships were won while MLB rosters consisted largely of replacement players (due to many regular players having been drafted for military service during World War II). The 1946 championship was won after the regular players returned to MLB; although their regular-season record was slightly worse than the 1942 and 1944 teams (but still ATCL-eligible), given the aforementioned circumstances the 1946 Cardinals have been chosen to represent this cluster of ATCL-eligible Cardinals teams instead. 2017 Houston Astros, 2018 Boston Red Sox: In 2019, both of these teams were implicated in an electronic sign-stealing scandal; as a result, their respective World Series championship seasons have been thrown into disrepute. Although the 2017 Astros otherwise meet criterion 1 and the 2018 Red Sox criterion 2, both teams are deemed ineligible for the ATCL. In the World Series era (i.e. since the 1903 season), nineteen AL teams and twenty-five NL teams have met the above criteria. The top seventeen from each league were placed directly into the ATCL. For the AL, the two remaining teams were matched up in a best-of-seven play-in series, with the 1948 Cleveland Indians defeating the 2001 Seattle Mariners, 4 games to 2. (The 2001 Mariners were the only non-World-Series-winning AL team to qualify under criterion 3.) For the NL, the eight remaining teams were placed into a play-in tournament of three best-of-seven rounds. (*criterion 3 qualifier) Quarterfinal: 1998 Houston Astros* def. 2016 Chicago Cubs, 4 games to 3 Quarterfinal: 1967 St. Louis Cardinals def. 1925 Pittsburgh Pirates, 4 games to 3 Quarterfinal: 1946 St. Louis Cardinals def. 1969 New York Mets, 4 games to 3 Quarterfinal: 1954 New York Giants def. 1994 Montreal Expos*, 4 games to 1 Semifinal: 1998 Astros* def. 1967 Cardinals, 4 games to 1 Semifinal: 1946 Cardinals def. 1954 Giants, 4 games to 3 Final: 1946 Cardinals def. 1998 Astros*, 4 games to 2 So, without further ado, here are the 36 ATCL teams and their divisional alignment (and OOTP's auto-generated preseason predictions): I plan on running the ATCL 2nd Edition at a more leisurely pace than the first. Since the league technically runs in calendar year 2020, first I will sim it in chunks of multiple days or weeks until I get caught up with the actual date. Then I'll sim each day at a time, so that the virtual pennant races play out over the entire summer followed by the playoffs in October, just like a normal MLB season in a normal year. I'll also be selecting Games of the Day, Week, and Month for each league, and sharing their replay files, so that anyone with OOTP can watch them. (I'm also considering doing video recordings of each Game of the Week, and eventually all playoff games, and posting them to YouTube.) They're all World Series champions, but which team is the greatest of all time? One of the three teams each representing the Yankees, A's or Braves? One of two each from the Tigers, Indians, Giants, Cards, Dodgers or Reds? Last year's champs, the Washington Nationals? Or could the '97 Marlins even make another improbable run? We're about to find out...
  8. I searched through threads for the past year and couldn't find anything like this, so I figured I would post it. The idea behind this thread is to post interesting facts or statistics that a lot of people don't know. It'll essentially be the answers to trivia questions. I've got two interesting ones to start this thread off. The Minnesota Vikings were the first team to kick an extra point from the 15-yard line. Tom Brady has played two games at University of Phoenix Stadium, but he has never played the Cardinals there. The Pats have played two Super Bowls there, but only played the Cardinals at home since the stadium was built.
  9. With the influx of powder blue uniforms returning to the MLB, I thought to myself "What if the majority of teams had a road uniform that wasn't grey?". So that's exactly what I tried to answer with this series. A few points need to be made before I post the first uniform. - Not every team will be featured. I only picked the teams that I think could get by not having a grey uniform - Not every team that had a powder blue uniform in its past will be featured - Some of these uniforms will actually be alternates, because I like the team's current grey roads - Four of the teams featured will have 2 sets of colored uniforms - 16 teams in total will have non-grey uniforms. Hope you all enjoy this series!

  10. Going off of my MLB uniform concepts (which can be seen at this link https://boards.sportslogos.net/topic/121809-mlb-uniform-tweaks-andor-designs/#comments), I decided to do something a bit different, and create concepts for old MLB teams that have since moved away, using the Wikipedia template. I'm only doing MLB teams that have moved since the first World Series was played in 1903, and furthermore, I am only doing the team's original city (so no Milwaukee Braves or Kansas City Athletics). There are a total of eight teams that meet this criteria, and they are the Boston Braves, Brooklyn Dodgers, Montréal Expos, New York Giants, Philadelphia Athletics, Seattle Pilots, St. Louis Browns, and the Washington Senators (both incarnations of the franchise are merged into one concept). These concepts will be uploaded alphabetically, starting with the city name. Please, just give me your thoughts on them. Thank you!
  11. I couldn't find any predictions megathreads, so I figured why not I be the one to start it? I'm gonna start this first of all with my WAY TOO EARLY NFL PREDICTIONS NFC EAST: AFC EAST: PHI 11-5 BUF 10-6 DAL 9-7 NE 7-9 WAS 4-12 NYJ 5-11 NYG 3-13 MIA 4-12 NFC NORTH: AFC NORTH: GB 11-5 BAL 13-3 MIN 9-7 PIT 9-7 CHI 8-8 CLE 8-8 DET 5-11 CIN 4-12 NFC SOUTH: AFC SOUTH: NO 13-3 IND 10-6 TB 10-6 TEN 9-7 ATL 9-7 HOU 7-9 CAR 2-14 JAX 2-14 NFC WEST: AFC WEST: SEA 12-4 KC 13-3 SF 10-6 DEN 9-7 ARI 8-8 LV 7-9 LAR 8-8 LAC 7-9 NFC PLAYOFFS: AFC PLAYOFFS: #1 NO 13-3 #1 BAL 13-3 #2 SEA 12-4 #2 KC 13-3 #3 GB 11-5 #3 IND 10-6 #4 PHI 11-5 #4 BUF 10-6 #5 TB 10-6 #5 PIT 9-7 #6 SF 10-6 #6 DEN 9-7 #7 DAL 9-7 #7 TEN 9-7 WILD CARD: PIT over BUF IND over DEN KC over TEN TB over PHI GB over SF SEA over DAL DIVISIONAL: KC over IND BAL over PIT GB over SEA NO over TB CONFERENCE CHAMPIONSHIPS: BAL over KC NO over GB SUPER BOWL 55: NO 28 - 38 BAL RAVENS ARE YOUR SUPER BOWL CHAMPIONS!
  12. Hey everyone, I am looking for some constructive criticism and just opinions in general of my MLB uniforms designs or tweaks. Basically, this is what I would do to each MLB team's uniform. I will upload the American League uniforms first, and then the National League uniforms. I will go alphabetically for each team from the East Division first, then in the Central Division, and finally in the West Division in the American League and then the National League. I will be using the Wikipedia template, and therefore, if you have Microsoft Paint, you will easily be able to make edits to the template (or use a third-party app called Paintbrush if you're a Mac user like me).
  13. Welcome, everybody, to this brand new series! I can't wait to get going on this thing, and I just think it's super cool y'all are checking this out. Since I first posted my very first few concepts on here on a few months ago, I feel I've learned a lot, and hopefully you all see that improvement as this series unfolds. I'll try my very best to keep updates daily. Below is the order in which I will be posting all 30 MLB teams: AL West - - Seattle Mariners (Ver. 2) - Oakland Athletics - Houston Astros (Houston Colt .45s) - Los Angeles Angels (Revamped Alts) - Texas Rangers NL West - - Los Angeles Dodgers - San Francisco Giants (San Francisco Seals) - Arizona Diamondbacks - San Diego Padres - Colorado Rockies AL Central - - Cleveland Indians - Kansas City Royals - Chicago White Sox - Detroit Tigers - Minnesota Twins NL Central - - Pittsburgh Pirates - Cincinnati Reds - St. Louis Cardinals - Milwaukee Brewers - Chicago Cubs AL East - - Boston Red Sox - New York Yankees - Baltimore Orioles - Tampa Bay Rays (Expos/Montreal rebrand) - Toronto Blue Jays NL East - - Philadelphia Phillies - New York Mets - Atlanta Braves - Washington Nationals (Senators rebrand) - Miami Marlins Each team will get four uniform options, including a home, road, and two alternate jerseys. For most teams, I will be avoiding adding throwbacks as their alts, but teams with classic looks like the Dodgers, Red Sox, and Yanks might end up with one as a fourth uniform option. some changes will be very small, others will be complete overhauls of team identities. And hopefully you'll like what I do to your favorite team's look. Anyway, that's enough talking. Let's get this thing started! As always, constructive criticism is encouraged. Enjoy!
  14. Happy quarentine everyone. Last night I was scrolling through MLB shop and saw these beauties: I absolutely love these. I think these could be my favorite alternate uniforms in the MLB. I just love how the black script pops off the orange. Anyway I decided the do a little rebrand for the Giants (and possibly more teams) based on this gorgeous script that I think is very underused. I am not a Giants fan at all (besides this jersey of course), but being a Diamondbacks fan, we play the Giants a LOT during the course of the season I would love to see that script more. I have the primary logo done to start and basically I took the main logo from 1958-1967, updated some colors and the script and added a silhouette of the Golden Gate Bridge, although in my opinion it looks a lot like the Warriors logo. I also made a version with the bridge replaced by the skyline of San Francisco, but that reminded me of the Mets. Anyway no more explanation, here is the logo I have so far. Uniforms coming soon.
  15. Hi everyone, I hope you're all enjoying the MLB postseason. Picking up where we left off last year with our MLB City Edition series, @Paul Lucas, @Carolingian Steamroller, @Victormrey, @MJD7 and I return with another collaboration, this one inspired by the NBA's Statement Edition uniforms, first introduced for the 2017-18 season. This project is similar in spirit to that series in that we've looked to each Major League Baseball team's unique visual history and combined elements from local culture in order to produce new designs that we hope each team's fanbase would instantly embrace. I'll start today with the California Angels Anaheim Angels Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim: Upon visiting Angels Stadium for the first time a few weeks ago, l was surprised to learn the much-maligned-on-these-boards Disney era Angels gear is actually a favorite among fans of a certain age! For that reason, I decided to lean into that for my design but with a twist, using the color scheme of the '90s era Mighty Ducks. C&C appreciated!
  16. Hey there, everybody, I'm new around here. I've always had a passion for sports and sports logos, specifically baseball, but I don't really know a whole lot about graphic design. I've had some free time to dabble in the redesign arena lately, however. Thanks to @rsaline's wonderfully easy to use template, I have been able to knock out quite a couple teams this past week or so. Now, it's my first time doing anything like this, so I obviously welcome critiques. I probably won't have time to go back to fix everything based off of suggestions right away, but I'll do my best. Right away, you'll notice I haven't done anything too crazy with the few teams I've finished so far, and I don't plan to do so. You'll also find that I rank the old MLB logos and jerseys over the current looks. You'll see an abundance of throwback logos, fonts, and colors. Anyway, without any further comments, let's get underway! - Nate

  18. Hey everyone, A while back I started a discussion in the General Sports Logos forum on which MLB teams could most use redesigns and new color schemes. It sparked the idea that a few teams with older/outdated designs could look to local college baseball teams for design inspiration. For this mini series, I'll be focusing on a small group of teams, maybe four or five. Let's start today with the Angels! ANGELS HOME: ANGELS ROAD: ANGELS HOME ALT: ANGELS HOME/ROAD ALT: For the Angels, I've used the Trojans of the University of Southern California as inspiration. The Halos adopt a deep crimson red and athletic gold scheme, a color combo I've long felt would work well for them. The cursive "Angels" script is a tweak of the original Lakers script from the early '60s. No unnecessary outlines or drop shadows. Just keep it simple. I've also brought back the early "CA" monogram. C&C appreciated! The Rangers are next.
  19. Hey everybody, I hope one of y’all can help me out. I’ve been looking everywhere for this template, and I can’t find it. I’ve seen folks using it for their concepts around here, and I would love to use it myself. Where can it be found? https://imgur.com/a/JzNOFEq
  20. Hi all, With Nike taking over the MLB uniform rights, I decided to do what they did with the NFL and give each MLB team a color rush alternate to wear. I limited the colors on the uniform to one primary color, one secondary color, and one accent color (if needed). I also tried to keep the primary color of the uniform as different as possible across each team to give the series more diversity in the end. I'll also be listing what's new (if anything). So, I'm starting with all of the AL East teams: Baltimore Orioles: What's new? 1) City name replaces team name 2) Black pant with matching orange stripe to sleeve Boston Red Sox: What's New? 1) White lettering and numbering on uniform 2) Red hat 3) Red pant New York Yankees: What's New? 1) Refreshed road uniform with white outlines removed 2) Gray hat with blue brim returns (worn for one series in 2012 vs Boston) Tampa Bay Rays: What's New? 1) Teal cap with monochromatic navy logo and navy brim 2) Refreshed teal alternate with white removed and old Ray added to sleeve 3) Numbers receive same treatment as chest word-mark 4) Teal pant Toronto Blue Jays: What's New? 1) Logo simplified to just royal blue and white 2) White cap CC is welcome AL Central up next!
  21. As a native Minnesotan, I usually get a little disappointed or dismayed by the Twins concepts I see on the forum. Their identity always seems like a bit of an afterthought, often subject to a recolor so as to differentiate the Twins from a myriad of RWB teams in the league. Instead of taking this approach, I wanted to work (for the most part) with the existing color scheme whilst drawing from the team's history. With that in mind, I reintroduced light blue into the color scheme. While light blue was restricted to their road uniforms in an era when several teams were using it for their road uniforms, this historical precedence combined with the fact the state's name literally means "sky-tinted water" makes it a suitable vehicle for setting them apart from teams with similar colorways. This addition of light blue spells the end for Kasota gold. I didn't necessarily hate its addition a few years ago, but its application was unsuccessful and does not fit with the light blue. One of the more popular changes for posters is to correct the inconsistencies between the team's wordmarks. I decided to follow suit, but took a decidedly different approach. The result applies the Minnesota Wild script to the Twins, using a Tuscan-esque font that takes cues from the area's history as a railroad and flour milling hub. The TC logo follows suit, and I put an M back on the away cap. Here, it calls back to the successful minor league Minneapolis Millers. Lastly, Minnie and Paul are updated with the new colors and wordmark as well as altering the state outline to be more geographically accurate. It is promoted to the primary, replacing the squad's generic baseball roundel. Got all that? Good. Now look at it. Let me know what you think. I also have a decidedly modern take on the Twins that I will post sometime in the coming week. Take care.
  22. I rebranded the Colorado Rockies due to their current boring, branding. - Updated the color scheme to more vibrant purple. - New primary logo with mountain and Colorado "c." - Used the Denver Nuggets miner logo to create a secondary mascot logo for the Rockies. I slightly edited it and updated its aesthetic. - New wordmark using a script font. - All new jerseys.
  23. For the 2020 MLB season, I decided to create some Nike MLB jersey concepts for Players' Weekend using the new Nike Baseball Jersey template. I wanted to create something unique with these jerseys. I used a lot of alternate colors and alternate logos on the jerseys, and made fauxbacks for some teams as well. If you are wondering why the Mets are black and pink, it is because when they were formed they were supposed to be black and pink. I'm not entirely happy with the Rockies, Rays, and Astros. For the Rockies I didn't really have any ideas for, while the Astros and Rays jerseys didn't come out as well as I thought they would. Thanks for viewing.
  24. I decided to do a Nike MLB Uniform Refresh, some teams will get total rebrands, some will have altered colors, some will have new alternates, or get new throwbacks. Visit my Behance to see my other sports designs: https://www.behance.net/ianrasovsky For the diamondbacks, I updated the home and away uniforms by replacing the sand accents with teal, solidifying teal as their new tertiary color. I also added their purple alternate from 1998 on the new Nike MLB teamplate. I also created a new home cap, that replaced the sand in the diamonbacks's "A" logo.
  25. I've attempted to take MLB teams, combined with NFL counterparts and their jersey designs, C&C always welcome! This may be a series for the full league, I'm open to requests as well. And with that, here we go... LA ANGELS = RAMS The thought here was to try and mimic the Rams horns design with some sort of wing design on the sleeves. OAKLAND A'S = RAIDERS HOUSTON ASTROS = TEXANS TORONTO BLUE JAYS = BILLS CLEVELAND INDIANS = BROWNS Inspired by the color rush but in away form. CINCINNATI REDS = BENGALS PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES = EAGLES
