Logo collecting

Recommended Posts

Anybody actively collect logos or logo images? My main focus is NCAA logos, especially the ones from 80s and older. These logos are not always easy to find. I often find them on ebay and things like that. There are several schools where i can only find copies of the current logo, I was thinking maybe a pooling of resources could be beneficial. I wasnt sure if anyone does this, let me know.

Oh yes.

I have been collecting NBA logos since I first got access to a scanner years ago and scanned the black & white logos from the NBA guides from the 1960s, 70s and 80s. (some of the earliest versions of these logos on CCSL were colorized versions of these)

I collect Major League Baseball logos. I've even had to recreate my own in some cases. Including all of the one-off celebration uniforms teams wear during the season.

I save vintage logos (mostly college) whenever I see them. I've amassed quite a collection.

College logos are by far and away the hardest to get a hold of in my experience. Why these univ and colleges do such a poor job in preserving their history Ill never know. If found a couple of great books on college mascot name origins from the 80s. They are both chock full of great vintage NCAA logos. I've been toying with the idea of doing a book review on some of the books in my collection.
