1997 Tampa Bay Bucs prototypes

Yes, this was part of the process that eventually resulted in their Super Bowl look. 

 

You can see that the last one is almost there, they just shortened up the flag.

Does anyone have some of these logos that were potentially to be used?  Thanks in advance.

An updated version of this as a secondary logo would be far better than "BUCS".

A logo that depicted Bucco Bruce throwing poodle puppies off the top of high rise buildings would be better than that stupid "BucS" wordmark.

I actually like the "Bucs" wordmark ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

It's alright, but not for use on a jersey. They should've put the pirate ship on both sleeves.

If I recall correctly, these were not 1997 prototypes, but rather from 2014.

Nope, definitely pre 1997 prototypes.

I love that last one. I almost wish they had gone with that, so that way we could still see the creamsicle throwbacks.

I know it was 1997ish...but that last one sort of had a Wisconsin problem, where the red logo was darker than the red facemask.  It'd be interesting to see that last helmet with an orange facemask.

I do too.  That's the only one even remotely as good as their eventual choice.  And as a simpler icon, I could even argue that it's better than the flag.

That is def one of the better ones. I'm not one for change, But that Buccaneers brand at the time needed as much change as possible and really loved the direction they went. Now not so much.
