  1. Hey all, Long-time lurker of the site and forums, first-time poster. Like a lot of people the shelter-in-place has led to much more hobby time than I ever could have imagined. So I tried my hand at designing a uniform for a fictional team in my hometown. It quickly evolved into a full eight-team league. I'm definitely no artist and cobbled together a few designs off a reworked jersey template I found through Google Search, a hat template from @Htown1141 and a pant & stirrup template of my own design. The designs themselves were inspired by what I've been watching during the quarantine including a ton of old World Series films on YouTube, a lot of When It Was a Game/Flagstaff Films clips and "The Natural." So we have a Single-A minor league set in 1939 in the Bay Area known as the Coastal Fog League. The league logo is below and not a masterpiece by any means, but meant to evoke the blend of California's sunny climate and the infamous fog that likes to roll in on summer evenings around San Francisco Bay. San Bruno Seals - San Francisco's team reappears in the suburbs First team up is the genesis for all this, from my hometown. Inspired by the legendary San Francisco Seals, we'll suspend belief and pretend that the Pacific Coast League version lost the war for fans to the Mission Reds, hence the name being available for a Single-A team. The chest logo mimics the classic mark from the real Seals of the Joe DiMaggio era, which in turn borrowed from the White Sox of the 1910-20's. I went for a basic, but different color scheme of green and white simply because green is my favorite color. I've always had a fondness for teams of the 20's and 30's that had logoless white home or gray road caps with piping, so that was a must and an element that'll come back again. This road cap was inspired by the real Seals logo cap from ~1939 with a slightly different take on the logo. Another detail from that era was a solid-colored button placket. Had to include that sharp looking (but dubious) Baseball Centennial patch. The other patch is a nod to the actual San Bruno city seal and plays off the various city-related patches of this era. This simple Boston anniversary design came to mind. And I wanted to do a set with white road stirrups. I'm not fully sure it works, but it has a vaguely White Sox feel to it. Comments and critiques are definitely welcome for someone dipping into this for the first time. Seals References
  2. Bizarrely, I haven't been able to find such a thread in the archives, at least not in the past few years. Anyway, I think this could be a fun topic to discuss. Which Super Bowls just looked great? Which ones were a disaster (*cough cough, last year's*)? Also, teams wearing white in the Super Bowl are, thus far, 31-18 if I recall correctly, with at least the four biggest margins of victory (49ers over Broncos by 45 points, Bears over Patriots by 36 points, Cowboys over Bills by 35 points, Seahawks over Broncos by 35 points). It's a small sample size, but that's still a bigger difference than you'd expect. Do you think it's just a coincidence, or does wearing white somehow convey a psychological advantage?
