Any ideas on what the names of the Triplets' Minny and Paul would be? I'm thinking Winston for one, but can't seem to come up with anything for the other two (Greeny? High-ssac?).

Winston-Salem = could be Winston, but I like Winnie, to rhyme with/honor Minnie

High Point = could be Tom, but Thomasville is it's own entity. However, the historical nickname of minor league teams was the Hi-Toms. I could also see it be something like Hip

Greensboro = Nate or Nathan, to honor Gen. Nathanael Greene, who the city is named after

Thanks for the heads-up, I bought myself the white front-panel hat!


A couple thoughts:

 

Given that Hat Club has done some “What if?” ideas, such as the Toronto Giants and Washington Stars (relocated Padres), would you ever consider working with them on some of these concepts?

 

It also looks like you’re not going to get to the potential “Twins-to-Salt Lake” concept, as you’re looking to soon wrap up the series.

 

Both are understandable if negative on both of those, given that we all have a life outside of these forums.

One would definitely be Winston, it's possible that the one for High Point would be Tom (Thomasville is right by HP) but I've got nothing for Greensboro.

 

BigRed gave the best answer, IMHO.

The design looks nice, it's adapted well, just not for me. A little too bland in my opinion, there's not a lot of character there (not really through any fault of your own). I do really like the C and Triplets script, however.

 

Thanks!

I got such a kick out of this, naming the Twins the Triplets is so funny to me. I think the only gripe I really have is the negative space between the letters in Triplets that is much bigger than the ones on the Twins. I think this comes down to the not-exactly-vertical lines on the  i p and l, and the wavy line on the lowercase t. I'd tighten those up and think it'd look a little better. Also I wonder what an NC lockup would look like!

 

Thanks! I've tightened up the wordmark as a result. I think it looks better and I've updated the original post accordingly.

I now want to tweak my '87-'09 Twins-styled SeNationaltors concepts now. I didn't even use a real arching function to make those wordmarks!

LMAO he went with my idea of a Carolina Triplets.

 

 

Thanks and I'm sorry that I didn't see your post about the name. Heck, I'd argue Triplets woks in both Raleigh and Horneytown.

Thanks! I'd really like to work with Hat Club for this "What if?" stuff, but I'm sure they have their own team of artists doing these digitizations and embroidering of prototype designs. I would definitely love the opportunity, though.

 

Also, the Twins-to-SLC is still happening. I'm just trying to think about a way to make it work for the region. It'll either be renaming them as the Bees (with Twins touches) or something that references a twin something in Utah.

As we've seen with the Jazz, the Twins name might not need reason. Something about the Utah Jazz and Utah Twins somehow works.

You did a really cool modernized Seattle Pilots set in Project 32.  Any chance of a modernized Houston Colt .45s set?
