  1. Hi everyone, Recently I've had the itch to go back and "remaster" a few of my earliest hand-drawn uniform designs, some of which were a humble attempt to continue the fantastic MLB Rivalry face-offs by @Discrim from a few years ago. In true Discrim fashion, some teams will have seemingly disparate home and road uniforms, usually tied together by matching logos and number styles. This was a fun exercise to get inside the unique, twisted mind of Discrim, and I hope I did him justice. First up are the Mariners vs. Padres, AKA the Vedder Cup. What is the Vedder Cup exactly? Well, you can read about it here. Whether or not this one qualifies as a true "rivalry" depends on who you ask. Regardless, I'm pretty happy with how these designs turned out. MARINERS: The Mariners' home set is inspired by the Seattle Steelheads Negro Leagues team, while the away set combines Seattle's powder blue roads from the '70s and '80s with the M's Turn Ahead the Clock unis. PADRES: My original hand-drawn Vedder Cup designs from 2016 had the Padres in navy pins at home. Now that the Padres have since gone back to pins in real life, I took a different approach for my update, combining various elements of San Diego's PCL uniforms while keeping that 2016 navy and gold color scheme. For the road, remember that Ray Kroc, who founded McDonald's, owned the Friars from 1974 until his death in 1984. In the late '70s, McDonald's employee uniforms were brown (well, really more of a reddish color, but stay with me on this) and gold. Therefore, we get a Padres x late 1970s McDonald's uniform. (I suppose that would make the Swinging Friar a Swinging Fryer ). C&C appreciated! Here's a peek at the other rivalry sets I have planned: Battle of the Border: Cubs vs. Brewers Leyland Cup: Tigers vs. Pirates Stocking Series: White Sox vs. Red Sox Gillick Showdown: Blue Jays vs. Phillies
  2. While Nike's City Connect program aims to pay tribute to each team's respective city, I wanted to come up with designs that would specifically honor MLB ballparks, some of which have been around for the better part of a century or longer. Much like the City Connect designs, you'll see color schemes, scripts and patterns you wouldn't normally see on a team's every day unis. Full disclosure, I'm not particularly inclined to tackle teams whose parks are named after corporations, so apologies in advance if your team gets passed over. I might end up changing my mind about that, though. We'll see. We'll start today with the Red Sox and Fenway Park: Some notes: - Primary color is Green Monster Green. - The font used for the script and back numbers is called Senator Demi and is based on this wall art welcoming fans to the ballpark. - McAuliffe style front numbers enclosed in a white circle are inspired by the retired numbers displayed on Fenway's right field facade. C&C appreciated! I already have a few of the other more well-known parks ready to go, but I'll probably need help with most of the others, so suggestions are appreciated.
  3. This is a series I've been talking about doing for years with @Victormrey, @Carolingian Steamroller and @MJD7. Vic had the idea that it would be cool if each MLB team had an alternate uniform that displayed both its city AND team name. For this series, I scoured the main site for teams' primary, alternate and wordmark logos--all of which tend to include their full names--for inspiration. Since many teams' current primary/alternate/wordmark logos don't feature their full names, expect some designs to be of throwback in nature. I'll be posting division by division, starting today with the NL West! DODGERS: The Dodgers get a blue alternate that uses the arched block "LOS ANGELES" from their 2008 50th anniversary logo. GIANTS: I gave San Francisco a mono black treatment with a jersey displaying their 2000-present wordmark logo. PADRES: This one's a bit of a fauxback, as I recreated the Friars' 1978 uniforms but with the team's current script and numbers. I feel this one could easily slot into the Padres' uniform rotation, as they don't currently use a gold alternate. ROCKIES: The Rockies design is based on Colorado's Turn Ahead the Clock unis, with the team's current alternate logo and block numbers replacing the TATC jersey's giant mountain range and "futuristic" numbers. DIAMONDBACKS: For Arizona, I brought back the Snakes' classic purple/turquoise/copper color scheme, using a modified version of the team's 1998-2006 alternate logo for the jersey. I'm tempted to try this one in Arizona's current black/Sedona red/turquoise colors, so let me know if anyone is interested in seeing that. That's the NL West! An AL division will be up next.
  4. Recently I've been going back to some of my earliest hand-drawn baseball and "remastering" them in MS Paint. One interesting idea I had way back when was "reversed" MLB identities; essentially, taking (mostly) geographic rivals who share a city or state and swapping recognizable uniform designs with one another. See below: CUBS x 1983 WHITE SOX I felt the Cubs' identity lent itself well to the 1982-86 White Sox design with its use of blue and red. I used the block "CUBS" from their 2014 road alt for the jersey and a modified version of the "angry bear" logo for the cap. WHITE SOX x 1942 CUBS I always thought there was something really cool about the zippered 1942 Cubs home uniform, especially with its unusual vest/sleeve design. Turns out it also looks great in black and red for the White Sox. Thanks to @Carolingian Steamroller for suggesting I use the South Siders' 1930-31 jersey logo. C&C appreciated! I'll post more pairs of teams as I finish them.
  5. Hi everyone, For my latest project, I wanted to do address the overabundance of blue & red teams across Major League Baseball. For inspiration, I figured I'd look at the colors of other local teams to create some regional visual unity, similar to the way that all Pittsburgh teams use black and gold. Note that some teams will be using throwback colors of local teams, such as the first team below. We start today with the Texas Rangers in the San Antonio Spurs' fiesta colors. Thanks to @Victormrey for the suggestion! RANGERS HOME RANGERS ROAD RANGERS HOME ALT 1 RANGERS HOME ALT 2 RANGERS HOME ALT 3 RANGERS ROAD ALT C&C appreciated! Another team will be up soon.
  6. While I'm pretty happy with how the Cubs City Connect uniforms turned out given how poorly the initial jersey leak was received, I still think it would have been interesting had the team gone with a solid green design to mimic the famous ivy on Wrigley's outfield walls. Let me know what you think!
  7. For my next series, I was inspired by the NBA's new Mixtape uniform program which sees each team getting a new alternate that combines logos, colors and unique design elements from throughout their uniform history. I'll go division by division, starting with the AL West! LOS ANGELES ANGELS of ANAHEIM: The Angels design is a play on the Disney era Angels while adopting the logos and numbers of the '72-92 uniforms. HOUSTON ASTROS The Astros design combines the scripts and logos from Houston's 1980-93 uniforms with the 2000-12 team's pinstripes and black base and utilizes a new tequila sunrise-style trim. SEATTLE MARINERS: The M's set is based on the team's infamous Turn Ahead the Clock uniforms from 1998 while using logos and scripts from 1981-86. OAKLAND ATHLETICS: I thought it might be fun to bring back the monochrome A's unis from the early '70s but paint them black. TEXAS RANGERS: This one adopts the 1970s's Rangers colors and logo into a vest style design a la the 2004-08 team. (Fun fact, the Rangers actually wore a powder blue top with white pants for one game in 1975.) C&C appreciated! A National League division will be up next.
  8. Now that MLB has announced that Dyersville, Iowa will once again host the Field of Dreams game in 2022, I got to wondering, if this becomes an annual tradition, will each of the 30 MLB teams eventually get a chance to participate in this special game? And if so, what would the teams who didn't even exist until decades later wear? This project seeks to answer that question. Expect lots of off-white uniforms, pinstriped caps and McAuliffe style numbers. There will be a mix of home and road uniforms, and for presentation's sake I'll also be including the teams that did exist in 1919 so you can see how my fauxback designs look alongside those real life ones. Rather than just post one team at a time, I'll go division by division. We start today with the NL West! SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS (1919): Loosely based on the New York Giants' 1919 road uniform but in the Giants' current colors and using the San Francisco Seals "SF" monogram which looks like it could have existed at this time. LOS ANGELES DODGERS (1919): Inspired by the 1919 Brooklyn Dodgers uniforms with L.A. on the front, somewhat evoking the 1907 New York Giants uniforms. SAN DIEGO PADRES (1919): Based on these 1936 Pacific Coast League Padres uniforms, replacing navy blue with their current brown. COLORADO ROCKIES (1919): This one is inspired by the Denver White Elephants, a Negro League team that existed from 1915-35. The jersey design is one I'm particularly proud of, replacing the white elephant from the original with a triceratops. PHOENIX DIAMONDBACKS (1919): Inspired by the Phoenix Senators, a minor league team that existed from 1915-1957. I really wanted to use the D-Backs' original purple and turquoise scheme, but that didn't feel very early 20th century so I instead opted for colors inspired by Arizona's City Connect uniform. C&C appreciated! Another division will be up soon.
  9. 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!
  10. 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!
  11. Dodgers Home V.01 Dodgers Home V.02 Dodgers Road V.01 Dodgers Home V.01 *PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE READING AND LOOKING AT MY CONCEPT: As some of you pry have noticed, I have been absent the past couple days. This is not because I quit posting! IT IS BECAUSE I BEEN WORKING ON MY CONCEPT, AND PERFECTING MY CRAFT! I have received more criticism then anyone in this forums history. With that being said, I apologize for lashing out at some of you. I am newer to the game of concepts, and i'm just working on improving my craft. Please forgive me. League: MLB League Branding: KingKongTom Team: Los Angeles Dodgers The Vision: When I started this Dodgers concept I wanted something unique, iconic, and a form of art. I have created the beast I set out to make. I used a baseball jersey concept, I have got higher quality logos, and I continue to use my A+ presentations. This is the new expectation for Dodger Baseball. Quote: "To design for the Dodgers, you must have the poise of a Cobra, and the bite of a thousand Lions." -Kong Tom I hope you enjoy this as much as I do. Please leave honest feedback. I hope you guys appreciate the hard work I put in.
