  1. First of all note: not 100% sure this topic belongs here but not sure where else it should go. Mods - if this needs to move, please move it. Looks to me like we might be faced with connecting the dots, so to speak when it comes to Minor League baseball histories. Especially now that 2021 has shuffled the deck, a lot of older history might become unconnected if not preserved. So, opening this topic in the hopes we can connect the dots and help out Chris and contribute to the site in some meaningful way. So, up first, it looks like the Columbia Fireflies (2021+ and 2016-2020) used to be the Savannah Sand Gnats (1996-2015). What I didn't know (until recently) was that the Sand Gnats used to be the Savannah Cardinals (1984-1995). Based on the information I saw, here was the chain of custody, so to speak: Savannah Cardinals (1984-1995) -- St. Louis Cardinals affiliate Savannah Sand Gnats (1996-1997) -- Los Angeles Dodgers affiliate Savannah Sand Gnats (1998-2002) -- Texas Rangers affiliate Savannah Sand Gnats (2003-2004) -- Montreal Expos affiliate Savannah Sand Gnats (2005-2006) -- Washington Nationals affiliate Savannah Sand Gnats (2007-2015) -- New York Mets affiliate --> moved to Columbia Columbia Fireflies (2016-2020) -- New York Mets affiliate Columbia Fireflies (2021+) -- Kansas City Royals affiliate Can anyone on the Savannah area (or anywhere else for that matter) confirm the above information I came across is accurate? I live in Atlanta, and don't really have the means to verify this. Baseball Reference (.com) seems to have the connection between the Savannah Cardinals and Savannah Sand Gnats, but not necessarily the Fireflies.
  2. Stumbled across this and thought it would interest y'all. Some great info in there like how 41 fans picked the name of the team and how there were 77 revisions done on the original logo. Check it out! BrandingtheMavericks.com
  3. I wasn't sure where to put all of these, so I figured I'd start a new thread of small little finds I found while browsing the 'net -- and specifically, right now -- Getty Images. Most of these are small oddities, difficult finds and what not. I was going to open this up to stuff I found in other sports, but basketball and NBA history in the 70s and 80s has recently captured my attention. Anyways ... some of my finds: GORGEOUS Color vs. Color in Baltimore against the Bullets and Warriors (also note it's Ladies Night!) Royals vs. Warriors game in Phoenix's Arizona Veterans Memorial Coliseum. The caption says it was a 1967 pre-season game. Note Rick Barry in the old-style Warriors' jersey. He never wore these in the regular season as 'The City' jerseys were introduced on Opening Night 1967. Larry Nance wearing #6 in the half season right after he was traded to Cleveland from Phoenix. Similarly, Kevin Johnson wore #11 in Phoenix for the half season after he was traded from Cleveland to Phoenix. Interesting font and styling of Tom McMillen's name on this Hawks' jersey. Not sure why the underline? Notice the name on the back of Dave Stallworth of the Bullets. The name was pretty long so the "st" of Stallworth is white to not clash with the blue stripe.
  4. I'm not exactly sure what to call this as it's a bit different from the Unused Logos/Jersey thread. This is forgotten history about team name changes, logo rumors and relocation that never -- that kind of stuff. I bring this up for a couple of reasons and I'll illustrate my point to hopefully set the tone of the thread. I was researching the late '80s NBA expansion of Miami, Orlando, Minnesota and Charlotte and found a few interesting nuggets in this article. I knew about the Charlotte Spirit nickname as it wasn't well received, the I found the Florida Heat nickname bit interesting and pretty much forgotten without having to dig pretty far back into news archives to find the reference. Additionally there was The Athletic article yesterday about the Dallas Mavericks aborted rebranding in the late 90s before Mark Cuban bought the team and branded them with their current look. I also found a few mentions in other articles of the possibilities of the Spurs moving to Miami to accommodate both Expansion bids in Florida, since the NBA was originally set to expand only by three instead of four teams. Anyways, I'd love to discover more lost history in other sport leagues since basketball is what I know best. What do you have?
  5. Personally I think the Rams are sporting their best logo that they've ever had, (compared to their generic helmet logos and that weirdly-detailed 50-60s Ram head) although some fans dislike it due to its association with St. Louis. Their current logo still managed to look timeless and modern after 18 years...
