Discovered new Chicago Blackhawks vintage logos

Recommended Posts

I was packing up our office to move to a new location, and discovered an old Original Six calendar. It was from 2003, but had old pictures of the teams. On the Blackhawks page, they had pictures which featured two logos that are not on the mothership, and I had never seen before.

NHL Uniforms has this logo for the 1951-55 jerseys, but you can notice that the striping is different.

The mothership has this logo for 1951-55

Interesting. Maybe our ideas of the Hawks need to be shifted a little bit? I'm also really digging Chief Blackhawk with a neck, and the new (old) font. Looks nice.

The mothership logo for 1951-55 is definitely wrong. The Hawks didn't use that font in the roundel until the 2009 Winter Classic jerseys. Thereafter, CCM/Reebok started using it in error on the barberpole throwbacks.

 

Also, I'm pretty sure the mothership's 1955-57 and 1957-65 logos are both fauxback creations.

They really should have given Chief Blackhawk a purple feather on his headdress

Finally a Purple take I can get onboard with!
