I actually wouldn’t hate if they went back to the “sloppier” Orioles script, like this:

While I like the new script a lot better, that script is too good to let rot in a dustbin. 

Get rid of either the black or the orange jerseys, and use this as a throwback. Or use this script on a black jersey.

Don't know if anyone stated this officially. Indians went without the nameplates last year against the Blue Jays in Toronto (I believe they took Wahoo off the jerseys for it?).

Holy damn. 2019 will feature 5 MLB logos on a baseball uniform. 

I count only 3, 4 if there is one on the pants which I don’t remember if there is or not, where is the 5th?

The 150 logo might be on both hat and jersey, so thats two.  Plus standard MLB logo on back of hat, jersey collar, and pants beltloop.

I think the O's should just take advantage of their throwbacks and use them more often. Since 2010, I can recall only several occasions where they did just that.

There's a game in 2013 where they busted out these against the Rays' 70's fauxbacks:

They put on these two following year:

We saw 60's throwbacks in 2016:

And then there was also that one uni from 2017 in that one pic a few posts above. Me personally, I'd like to see more of those 70's throwbacks from the days of Earl Weaver. The O's are getting out of some ancient ways as far as ownership goes, so maybe more throwback nights are coming soon while the rebuilding ensues. Also, it would be nice to see them do it on the road at least one game every year. That O's-Rays game from 2013 was a perfect example.

I never realized before how often the Orioles have changed it up, and pretty much all of it looks good.  Even that orange softball uni looks more "right" to me than most pullover-era uniforms.

How is this bringing your best product when the sightlines will be absolute trash

 

This from 2014.

I realize it's about exposure and getting your brand out there. But don't kid yourself. This is not for the 'fans'. Atleast those in attendance. 

I realize soccer/football scale is easier to configure than a cricket field. But how is this fun for anyone?

Is that Oakland? (Just kidding)

I grew up with this wordmark; I even wrote my Os like that when learning cursive in 3rd grade, despite my teacher correcting me all the time.  I love it, but I still think the one they have now is the one they should be using.  I also like the one Davis is wearing in the post by @TheBigFiz21 and have wondered what an updated version of that would look like, but I keep coming back to the current one.

 

Though, I do agree that I'd like to see more throwbacks.  Not one as a full-time alt, but just more one-offs.

Another throwback here, Chris Davis looking like he hit something.

Quick (probably unpopular) opinion: That's a great uniform. And that was probably an aesthetically pleasing game, with the Cubs in their '94 Cuba jerseys.

I love this script - the rough version on the mothership doesn’t do it justice.  I would love to see it used as the basis for their next uniform.

 

And man, the Orioles just might have the best primary home uniform timeline in the majors.  Not a stinker in the bunch, but a lot of variations on a theme.  If I was picking a team based solely on their uniform history it’d be hard to pass them up.

Seems like they, for the most part, only pull them out in “celebration” years.

I agree with this assessment. Heck, even their block wordmark looked good:

Road uniforms, however, have been occasional duds:

Needless double outlines are needless.

 

I’ve always been partial to the 1989-94 cursive script, as it effectively modernizes the dynasty-era design. A cleaned up version of the 1950s-1972 “Baltimore” script would pair well with it.
