I'm totally down for this theme if purple is the clear primary and black no  more than secondary.

So I went with the top left, everything else I think is better and/or updated.

the alts get the biggest facelift. I did a cool thing to the alternate hat, and the state alternate gets a complete makeover.

These look fantastic but I agree with the people who like the purple color scheme better. With the font looking a lot like the nuggets', and the red/yellow dynamic especially feels out of place.

I agree with @Jake3.roo. They look neat but there are too many red/blue teams. Purple is very rare in professional sports.

I mean yeah. The problem with working with purple is that unless you minimize it to the extent that the Rockies has, it looks really dumb when it's not the darkest color in your set. And if you don't pick the right shade of purple (especially when you're running a 3 color look for the Rockies, such as myself) it can be tricky. I will try nonetheless.

Got rid of the drop shadow, because there was no need for it and I think the font can stand on its own.

Glad to hear that! I'm hopefully going to be working on this more frequently over the summer, but that's what I said last summer.

 

Cincinnati Reds: I don't really know what I should title this

So the Reds are weird. I didn't want to use their old creepy baseball mustache guy, so I made a new dude. Yeah I know he's generic, I just made him and figured he'd work in a concept with a pretty generic history of uniforms. I like to think he'll be used in promotional materials and web based applications, similar to the Colts' new "C-Indiana" logo. He was kinda sorta not really inspired by @Sport's  batter man logo on dribbble, and I think that if y'all ask me to revise it that I will probably go in a more cartoony vibe like that one. He is also wearing 82 because that's when the club was founded.

 

My main goal was to shy away from Black altogether, as they A) haven't won anything in it, and as far as I can tell B) the fanbase seems either indifferent to or not into it. However, I didn't want to shy away from the Brandiose influence from 2006 too much, as I genuinely think their number font is a top-5 in baseball, possibly even the best. I'm serious!

 

The problem, however, comes with the standard block font on the current Reds primary logo. I wanted it gone, but I didn't know what to replace it with. I toyed with a standard Wishbone-C by itself (weak) and just slapping on the Brandiose font (too tall), so I settled on a modified version of the mark and used it as a replacement. Its always on a red background, as optically it looks more appropriately spaced.

The home uniform was easy money. I've never been a fan of placket striping and instead opted for a more direct homage to the Big Red Machine days of the 70's, however I decided to use the update marks. There's something to the simpliticty of this set that I really like, and I think it's emphasized on the home set. I was originally going to go with a colored away uniform set, but personally, the non-expansion teams should wear grey on the road (except the White Sox, Orioles, Twins, and maybe the Tigers). I felt like it needed white because grey is never a team's official color and thus acts acts a sort of canvas for the look to go upon. The white helps differentiate between that canvas and the uniform itself (plus it just looks nice).

The thing that stopped me from posting this for so long were the alternates. I couldn't think of what to do, but ended up selecting essentially an updated version of the 1919 uniforms to help tie in all eras of Reds history. I decided against a throwback on the second uniform, as I personally wanted to have a both home and road alternate for the second uniform (and because there was no colored uniform in the set), so I decided to use the updated wordmark and arch it the way I did on the away jersey. I think it could work for both home and away, let me know in the comments.

That's all I got for y'all today! Please be sure to leave a critique or comment or whatever and I'll be sure to mock it up for y'all

The Reds are fantastic! The primaries are simply beautiful. I applaud your use of white on the road as well, I agree that the uniform should act as a canvas for the design to go on. The 1919 throwback is also great, that white cap works so much better than it probably should. However, the red set is my favorite in the entire set. It looks a lot like the Hiroshima Toyo Carp's road jersey, which is also red over white (it even uses the wishbone C).

This is far and away my favorite baseball jersey of all time, but if that red Reds jersey was real it would replace it. Simply spectacular. 

 

On a somewhat related note, what color do you think the O's should use for a colored road jersey? I'd like to see an orange over white jersey with the Orioles script.

The Reds look great! I love the choice to go with a modified version of the Brandoise font, it looks great when it’s a bit shortened. The alternates are also great variations to go with. The only critique I would say is that I would miss Mr. Redleg, I’d love to see your take on maybe updating him to be less “creepy.” Great work overall though, glad to see this back!

I will be coming back to this again I swear but here's a preview of another team I guess? I'll go back and make a new redleg, but overall I'm happy with my Reds look.
