The unused Nordiques logo is awful and wildly inappropriate for a city whose defining characteristic is being really really old.

Loved the gradient, Hated the black and green pants.

Also, the Nordiques nearly changed logo shortly before they moved to Denver. I think the husky is definitely a great idea for the Nordiques, but this logo need a massive update.

Definitely a great idea for a shoulder patch if the classic "N" igloo becomes the crest. In case if they're back.

Speaking of unused logos with a husky in them, the QMJHL's Rouyn-Noranda Huskies were originally the Rouyn-Noranda Blizzards for a couple of months but changed the name shortly before the team's first season (a college elsewhere in the province was using the name and raised a fuss). https://ici.radio-canada.ca/nouvelle/744493/huskies-blizzards-hockey-lhjmq-20e-rouyn-noranda

Always gotta wonder how long Rouyn-Noranda can hang on in the dear old LHJMQ. Town and arena look like something out of Slap Shot, but more so. I'd hate to see them wind up in another suburb of Montreal; who will keep Val d'Or company?

Have there been any reports of the Huskies being in trouble, or are you just looking at the fact that it's an older arena and an out-of-the-way town and deciding to speculate that they're not long for the world?

- Rouyn-Noranda's attendance was better than four other QMJHL teams last season (Gatineau, Bathurst, Baie-Comeau, Val-d'Or.)

- If we eliminated the towns and arenas in the Q that look like something out of Slap Shot, you'd have about six teams left.

- Teams in the Montreal area have a pretty poor track record in the Q (Laval, Longueuil, Verdun, Mtl Rocket, Saint-Jean). Blainville is barely hanging on. Trois-Rivieres is renovating its arena; if anyone were to move, it would probably be there.

I love those numbers!

Here's a prototype version of the Astros' Rainbow Guts jersey:

Love that cap logo, and the white crown of the cap!

a bit busy to me but not bad

Middle row left reminds me a lot of this:

If only they had gone with that one, they would be the Minnesota Weagles and nobody would be complaining about how much the name Wild bothers them.

Recently I ran across what was advertised by Lelands Auctions as a 1961 Mets prototype.  I tried to submit this to Uni-Watch, but since it has nothing to do with socks, vacation slides, selling random stuff with a Uni-Watch logo on it, or a story about a couple liking two different football teams living in the same house (Oh - the novelty!), they weren't interested.  I was wondering if anyone can verify this or had any information on this.  Looks too Yankees to be considered seriously to me, but I could very well be wrong.

Or could have been your snarky derision.  ;) 

 

We've seen that one before, think it was several years ago.  Last time it surfaced at auction.  I want to say that the consensus was it wasn't for the Mets, but I can't remember specifics.

Thanks, I figured it couldn't be a Mets jersey.  I was perfectly nice in my email to Uni-Watch btw.  Although, yes, I'm not a fan of the person who runs that site, I won't elaborate on that here!  I don't want to be a person who strays off topic.

It was a footnote to the reply.  But it's ironic that you have poor reading comprehension skills I think.  BTW, thanks for your input.  It was really informative and educational.

Not really.  You brought up a totally different topic.  I replied.  It's ironic that you think you're so smart and you need everything explained to you.  Ironic and also Idiotic.
