I think the cap logo is a downgrade (sorry Brandiose) ... a little too cartoony and just doesn't feel like a baseball logo to me. The wordmark is certainly better than the previous one though, and I'm curious to see what the uniforms will look like. Still think they never should've ditched the Vermont Expos though!

I wanna bring up the 66era logo and I have a question for Brandiose. For El Paso, you guys made the Chihuahua swinging the bone, similar to the Padre's Swingin-Friar logo, Which I get because SD is EP's parent club. The same can be said with the Eugen Emeralds' swingin-squatch logo. But I've gotta ask, what was the reasoning behind the Swingin-Mechanic logo? According to the minor league website, they are not an affiliate of the Padres. Was it an idea Inland came up with and you just followed along or what?

Great question! For the 66ers, they asked us to stay away from the Route 66 road sign. There was some trademarking/confusion issues with that emblem and so they wanted to tell the story of the people who worked on Route 66 - particularly the blue-collar mechanics in the Inland Empire. They also wanted a real modern look but also tribute to the minor league logos of the midcentury - most of which were swinging bats. There wasn't an intended Padres connection (different angles of the character as well).

The first time we jumped the shark was the Clearwater Threshers.

New Vermont logos look a little too cartoonish for me. Ill probably pick up one of their old hats just because i loved it so much

Oakland A's online shop is still selling the old hats. I proudly rock the green alternate (that I never actually saw them wear on the field but whatever).
