Unused Logos and Uniforms


Recommended Posts

In addition to the inclusion of "The" in front of Orlando Magic in most of those logos, it's interesting that many of them use OrlandO. I wonder why the capitalizing of the second O was such an important design choice.

Nice catch...and I have no idea.

Mickey Mouse ears?

That seems very possible. Subtle nod to Disney...although as litigious as Disney is, they probably couldn't have gotten away with it, hence the lack of a second capitalized "O" in the final version.

Anyone ever seen anything like this before? It's a black version of the Kings' infamous 90s third jersey.

Interesting find. Maybe a Starter fashion jersey?

From the description it sounds like someone had a batch made up, not a contemporary manufacture of the supposed release date of the jersey. The design is also not quite exact to any pictures of the "real" thing. 

 

That said, if anyone ever wanted to own one I'm sure this is the closest you'll ever get.

A couple more unused finds:

 

Apparently, when Adidas was designing the Sacramento Kings' previous uniform set, they were originally going to put the wordmarks in their proper places: the city name on the road and (presumably) the team name at home. This prompts the question of how they managed to screw it up on the final product.

Here's a prototype of the Bucks' prior uniform set. Not much different than the ones they actually wore, but the collar here is tri-color instead of two-tone.

Maybe a subtle Irish preference...like the Or-land o' Magic.  

 

Ok, maybe not.  ^_^
