Unused Logos and Uniforms

Interesting find.  I wonder if this is a proposed design for the debut of the orca or if it was created after.  My guess is the former since that 'shimmer' material debuted the same year of the rebrand.  Then again, maybe it's just a fashion jersey.

Either way, the uniform looks very drab and lifeless.  The 1997-07 set wasn't particularly colourful, to begin with, but at least the blue and metallic silver gave the striping some interest.

Another Sixers prototype, presumably from the mid-late 2000s:

This is not the same as the Sixers prototype I posted in September 2014 - the piping/panels are slightly different and the collar design is what the Hawks ended up using when they changed their uniforms in 2007.

Remember that Padres prototype that everyone went crazy for? Here are two of the caps that were considered to be worn with it:

And here's an interesting article from today about the design process:

Here's a prototype Bucs road uniform for their inaugural year. Can anyone get a close-up of the logo on the sleeve?

That's actually really, really good. I'd personally get rid of the white outline in between the red and orange on the numbers, but other than that, this is pretty solid. That extra bit of red everywhere accents well with the orange.

So I was playing NBA 2K17, and when you choose to expand the league it gives you a picture of the '95 expansion draft:

And the first thing I notice is that Grizzlies script logo above Stern's head; was that ever used anywhere else after that expansion draft? 'Cause I'd never seen it before!

Never.  I doubt it's legit.  It looks like someone tried to make a white that matched the green from the late 1980s era.  The two stripes going around the yoke tell me it's wrong.  Those would probably have stopped at the shoulder.  I think someone just made a fashion jersey.

 

All that said, it's really very nice looking.  The sleeve numbers have thicker outlines, which I like.

 

I will say this, they did a good job with the logo.  The points on the start get "flattened"  in the right spots.  It's a really nice-looking jersey but I doubt it's an unused prototype.

Has anyone seen this before? I was at a local mall, and I saw this in a sports shop... I actually saw a signed Modano Jersey like this hanging from the ceiling, but the Broten jersey was easier to get a photo of...

Looking at the collar alone I can tell it's a fake but it's a nice looking fake.

Found this New Jersey Devils jersey on ebay today. I believe the Devils introduced these logos in 1996. They were mainly used for promoting the Devils Den merchandise catalog but do remember having a hat with the shoulder logo on it.

That logo is legitimately frightening. They're already not using what they're actually named after (an animal) in their branding; why not take it a step further and actually adopt a non-cartoonish devil...no, that would be awful.

That would be an awesome third jersey. Seriously I was always dismayed that the Devils never had an actual Devil logo. The old Jersey Devils of the EHL did.

Fake or not, that's a beautiful uniform.  Love the shoulder yoke.

It's obvious that many of these were designed by a graduate of THE Ohio State University.

 

. . . and they're all pretty bad.

 

When people call it THE Ohio State University, I think of this:
