Nah, we'd need a wise-cracking, shades wearing, hi-top sporting dinosaur thrown in the mix for peak 90's.

I was also surprised at how much this proposed logo foreshadowed their 2000-2013 look almost a decade earlier:

This is fantastic! Use it now! Who else is using vertical type like that? No one I can think of.

EDIT: no, turn the ball/sun's rays to an orange/yellow gradient; why would sunlight be grey??

I like it, but the script was probably too similar to this Mets jersey:

Well, having similar road scripts didn't bother the two teams once before.

Anyway, what is the story behind that prototype Yankee road uniform?

It's eBay, there may not actually be any story. And even if the jersey is genuine, it's doubtful that the story accompanied it.

My preference is plain block "NEW YORK" without any outline or cuffs, but if the Yankees started wearing that, I don't think I would entirely mind.

The Suns also put together a similar gallery of proposed uniforms. Most of them are tacky and awful, but there's a couple gems:

I really like the one on the far right. Maybe a little too similar to the Sonics and Hawks jerseys with the bold stripe across the front, but those elements in purple and orange look great.

 

Far left looks like if the 1980s Sonics and "Rainbow Skyline" Nuggets had an illegitimate Phoenician child.

I love those last two, even though I know I shouldn’t. 

i mean, they're bad on a number of levels, but at least they keep the team logo intact. And I kinda like ST^RS in Serpentine more than Helvetica, it gives it a bad sci-fi feel instead of no feeling at all.

I like them, too.  Of course, not together.  They'd have to pick yellow or gold (yellow!).

 

You can certainly pick them apart (too much black trim), but the overall concept of keeping the N-star and adding a secondary "Stars" logo for the sleeve is a good idea (you know, for a team destined to stay in Minnesota).

 

A couple of asides:

  • I have always thought that the few times I've seen that "Stars" logo with a yellow star, it's looked really nice.  
  • When they changed logos (and when I was still ignorant of the impending move south), I wanted them to put the "N-star" on the should.  I think I was inspired by the Twins keeping the "TC" on the home jersey sleeve when they went with the "M" hat in 1987. I felt like each logo should be held on, even if only as a secondary. So this sample does that, reversing the logos (even better).  Since the team was called "North Stars" and "Stars" was shorthand that many fans used, I think "Stars" as the alternate makes some sense.

 

Edit: While I do like them, they're definitely a downgrade.
