Nike-fy the MLB

Recommended Posts

I am starting "another" MLB thread, but the catch here is the concepts are modeled after the college baseball nike designs.  This means a ton of options, fauxbacks, and non-traditional designs.  The first team is the Houston Astros, a team many college programs model uniforms after.  I took a page out of the NCAA's book and brought back the rainbow guts with a modern twist.  Additionally, the more traditional options have added a shooting star above the team names.  C&C are appreciated, but any edits will be about 2 months out.

Next up, the Oakland Athletics, and a the return of a brighter green.  The uniforms mostly stay intact other than a switch to a brighter green, with the exception of sleeve patch colorways.  What makes this interesting are the fauxback options that include one of the major college trends.. colored pants.  Just like the old A's ,the fauxbacks take a vest form with the original A logo on the chest.  Expect a lot more colored pants and pullovers to come... spacer.pngspacer.pngspacer.pngspacer.pngspacer.pngspacer.png

Especially for teams that only have 2 colors + white, I see a lot of people here basically just make every option possible. You, however, even in making 6 uniform sets, have not. There are a few differences  and different uniforms themselves. Great work!

For the Milwaukee brewers, I went in a different direction and didn't go with many options.  Instead every uniform is a pullover, and I scrapped a grey road uniform.  Decided on the classic powder blue to complaint the lighter blue and yellow color scheme.

No complaints from me. And kudos for resisting the urge to reinvent the wheel.

And now for the St. Louis Cardinals.  Its a classic brand that doesn't leave much room for innovation, and for that reason the only difference is a fauxback to add a bit of flair.  Also change of wordmark on the away, not revolutionary but imo is much better.

I hope Nike brings back the powder blue alts from the 80s. Could you try that?

Sure can,. I’ll get around to edits after all the teams are posted.  Although I tried to stay away from oversaturating my designs with powder blue uniforms, because I find them gimmicky.

Alright, the next design is the ANAHEIM Angels, which means a name change for the sake of aesthetics.  For this one I really didn't go "nike crazy," rather just made some tweaks including a new shoulder patch, striping, and hats.  Also yellow replaces the silver halo.  Red on red remains, because I hate the recolorization of the angels logos especially when paired with the red on red hat.  No blue alternate to differentiate from the the other Navy dominant teams.

Posting back to back so i can show off a design that showcases some nike principles.  That would be the addition of countless neoclassic uniforms to go along with a traditional set (see UNC through the years).  with that being said, I kept the current home/away unis with no changes, but added three options that look modern, but draw influence from some early 1900s aesthetics.

I like the t-bars on the Dodgers set.

 

Keep up the good work!

I would vastly prefer the Cardinals use the fauxback jersey that you've put together over the one they wear right now with the St. Louis wordmark. Well done!

Nice series so far. 

I really like the Astros gray rainbow guts road uni - I always thought that would have been a good look when they wore them.

Next up are the Mariners and another combination of eras trend.  Modern colors, vintage logos, and a new sleeve logo.  Added are a consistency throughout the set, and a splash of more teal.

To follow-up, I am posting the Marlins and using nike basics to add more color to the set, and pinstripes just because.  Well actually as a nod to successful marlins past, but same concept.
