MLB Statement Series by Pinch Designer (Rockies 12/5)

Recommended Posts

Heading to “The North,” it’s the Blue Jays paying homage to the 1952 Toronto Maple Leafs (road)

Voilà, the Blue Jays and their ‘Statement’ jersey:

C&C always appreciated.

 

 

(as I did last time, a big ‘thank you’ goes to @Discrimihater for being so gracious in letting me use his awesome ‘Toronto’ script wordmark. I find any excuse to use it, thanks!)

The Blue Jays uni looks excellent! I like the contrast between the classy wordmark and the modern approach with the gradient, the mapple leaf and the CN Tower.

Overall it looks really Nike-ish, good job.

BALTIMORE ORIOLES

 

This draws heavily on the later Cal Ripken Jr era in Baltimore. I remember loving some of the early black alternate jerseys in that era with the big outlines so this is meant to evoke that. I'm always a fan of going monochrome instead of wearing a softball top so I went with black pants. To balance out the look we have orange undersleeves, an orange front cap panel, and color reversed classic socks. 

 

C&C as always! Enjoy!

Time for the Yankees!

 

The Yankees are one of the most difficult teams to approach to when it comes to special edition designs such as this Statement Series. They’ve been using almost the same design for more than a hundred years, and it has become the most iconic and distinct look in baseball; their fans love it and their rivals fear it.
This design tradition is probably the main reason why the Bronx Bombers remain one of the few teams without alternate jerseys. 
Nonetheless, in 1996 the team found an alternative, going for a 1934 throwback Black Yankees design. That is why I have decided to bring back that iconic look, with the "Yankees" wordmark on the front, a navy blue melange pattern, and simple white piping, as well as a navy cap with white soutache.

Wow! This design manages to feel both classic and modern at the same time. I love that vintage style "YANKEES" script, and it's always great to see a design pay tribute to the Negro Leagues.

Next, we have the rival Red Sox:

 

We decided to keep things fairly simple for this design. We figured the biggest statement the Red Sox could make would be by having their "hanging socks" logo be the most prominent aspect of the set, accompanied with the 1970's throwback socks to stand out from their everyday all-red look. The striping of the jersey is intended to match these socks, with the main inspiration coming from @SFGiants58’s navy alternate look. We'd love to hear your thoughts!

We've now reached the midway point of this series, so let's start with the new division and a new team, the San Diego Padres!

 

Funny story...Months ago I came up with a completely different design for San Diego, one that actually wound up looking pretty similar to the Padres new uniforms. After the team's dramatic new look was unveiled earlier this month, I knew I had to go in another direction, and what I came up with is essentially a modernization of the Padres' 1978 home and road alternate, bringing back the "Taco Bell" cap design and emphasizing gold over brown. C&C appreciated!

As a bonus, I've made yet another tweak to my Rays design, and this one I can finally say with confidence I'm happy with. Even though the Rays' hunter green look was my personal favorite of theirs, I had to accept that the Rays would probably not pay homage to the worst period in team history, so I decided instead to play up the teams' two current secondary colors of sky blue and yellow, using navy only as a trim color. Let me know what you think!

Nice work for the Padres! The uni works great as a throwback design, and at the same time it fits the recently unveiled set.

 

I like the new idea for the Rays, I think the use of Columbia Blue is a nice addition.

The gradient on the numbers should go top to bottom.  Otherwise you'd need potentially three different versions of each number.

Good catch! Here's an updated version of the numbers. The gradient also starts with purple and ends with light green, which works better, IMO.

How would it look in a purple/blue instead of yellow

maybe something like  Pantone 2735 C

Moving up 5,280 feet up to Denver, it’s the Rockies sporting a look embraces their (A) unique color as the only purple MLB team [though I wish the D-Bags would switch to the new Hornets colors plus copper or something🤷🏻‍♂️] (B) love of sleeveless alts (C) state flag logo cap (D) nod to a look that the Nuggets are still trying to get right.  1-E2-D6-ACC-16-DE-4418-8-C01-D19-DE70367
 

It’s the Colorado Rockies:
