Just because they've done it doesn't make it right.  I could say that people should never kill other people, and you could post a photo of a gruesome murder and it would be the exact same thing.

Are you comparing a navy blue baseball in a world series logo to people murdering each other?

 

I didn't even disagree or agree, I just posted the logos. The 2005 logo would've looked better if it was a white ball (withnavy grid lines instead of green)

I always felt that this was perfect:

The same way this was perfect:

Though I'm noticing both of those are cursive writing in an increasingly cursive-less world. That probably has a lot to do with it, huh.

Always liked this one, somehow evokes playing catch in the backyard with dad.

 

I love that one too.....my only problem with it was how light the actual colors looked on the sleeve patches during the games. 

 

That Series really was a Fall Classic.

I will admit I am half biased since the Phillies won this, but even still I think this was one of the best ones (I also agree with the 90s ones being perfect)

I really miss the 2008-2011 World Series logos where they went all in on the "Fall Classic" motif. Every logo in that era was autumnal colored and had leaves in the logo. Great fonts, and not any terrible looks. Kinda wish they would go back to it

2013 was my personal favorite. The font alone gives me faux-1980s vibes. I think it's the best of all the WS logos in this millenium without question.

These last two pages just make me appreciate the NFL's logo system even more.

I love autumnal logos for the World Series, but writing out "Fall Classic" feels like gilding the lily, or the oak leaf, as the case may be. Anyway, those mid-2000s X-gamesy World Series logos were atrocious.

bad bad bad bad bad! Such an important World Series (even if it was a fait accompli after the ALCS) and it's marred by that terrible logo.

I actually like that, looks kinda futuristic.

Nah, it was marred by a failed video game company.

Breaking the curse was important and all but the 2004 World Series was pretty forgettable otherwise. The ALCS that year was much much more engaging.

That logo was more of it's time than anything. Back then the trend from like 2004 to 2007 was a futuristic look with lots of gloss and chrome. Everything looked like this.

Everything is chrome in the future!

If anything, it makes me hate the NFL more. I don't think I would mind the standard logo system if it wasn't so boring and uninspiring. The same goes for the current NBA Finals logo. Stanley Cup has had a standard logo for a decade but it's always been visually interesting.

Why is the globe skewed and stretched? It's like italicizing the Alamo! Come on, fellas, you're losing your heads!

I think both of these are arguments in favor of a 'system'.  The NBA Finals logo is almost universally loved and looked at as a very classy mark that people used to look forward to seeing every year, and that WS mark (or something similar) could have been similar.  Save all the one-off logos for one-off events, and keep the grandest stage looking as important as you can.  Both of these logos do a good job of that.

MLB should have the NFL's system and vice versa. The Super Bowl being at a predetermined site means the logos miss out on all the localized imagery that made them so distinct.

wonder why mlb has never put the opening day logo on a teams hat or jersey? Seems like they jump to the chance to slap a patch on a hat whenever they get a chance to
