Hi guys! I love logos from the 70's and I thought a great way to see sports-related 70's logos I have never seen would be to create a thread dedicated to arena and stadium logos that were created in the 70's. I have some examples below and everyone is more than welcome to submit their favorites. 1) The Hartford Civic Center actually had TWO logos in the 70's: one that looked eerily similar to the Caldor's department store rainbow, and one that was a ligature of an H and two C's. 2) Here is what the Nassau Coliseum logo looked like in the 70's (I like how it looks like a bird's eye view of a circular stadium with a track and playing surface in the center):
My Brewers alternate throwback logo that I posted yesterday got a good response so I am adding another one of my concepts today. But first, a little bit of backstory... I am obsessed with logos that were designed in the 70's. So that got me wondering: what if some teams that have had the same logo since their inception before 1970 got a new logo in the 70's? What would it look like? The first team I did was the Kansas City Chiefs. I combined a red capital K with a football shape that is made up of a black C and an arrowhead. I am a big fan of diagonal stripes so I couldn't help but include them as the laces on the football. Plus it is kind of reminiscent of warpaint. Here is the logo: . . . . I'd love to hear what you guys think!
After seeing all the talk about the Penguins dropping their blue thirds and where they should go from their current edge jerseys led me down some new paths. I learned some things: The 90s Cup-era jerseys, which are what I'd like to see back, are not as popular as I thought. The mid-90s robo-Penguin is surprisingly popular. Mario hates it though. The 80s gold is popular, but nowhere near unanimously loved. Which is good, because Mario HATES it. The pre-edge jerseys were beloved, and so was the metallic vegas gold. So, I looked back over the Pens' history and got some inspiration. I didn't want to ignore the current jerseys, which have had their own era, and I didn't want to adopt an older jersey. I liked the triangles of the pre-edge jerseys, I wanted to bring them back. I also looked way back to the 70s and the jerseys not yet brought back, particularly those 1974 jerseys where they had an unexpected cup run. There have been triangle sleeves angled in all directions, but the pre-edge era make more sense in the age of sleeve numbers and patches all over. But I didn't want to simply bring back those jerseys in total. In time, I realized something: Those socks haven't changed since the initial return of the skating penguin. the Flyers based a jersey on their socks, and that was far, FAR more random. Why not the Pens? Plus, that made the jerseys far more versatile. You could use that template for anything, black with athletic gold, athletic gold with black, or any combination of blues. This is what I went with. The Pens have a habit of implementing jerseys as a third and then promoting it. That's my plan here. The new Pens' third jersey: With a new shoulder patch, made from a few key pieces: Who doesn't love the scarf? Put an 80s angry eye on it, close the beak because it looked too nice with it open, and eliminate the lines that were allegedly the result of a sponsorship deal from Mellon Bank. Then, that third can be promoted, and this can be introduced with it: and eventually, because Mario loves the blue, a third jersey. I thought of normal white shoulders, but these seemed so much more appropriate. The vegas gold did not look good with it, so I went old school. The clashing logo just looks so old timey. The only question was to use the secondary or the primary. This is the secondary version, I can post the other if asked. Thoughts? C&C?
