I like that home throwback for the Phils. The contrasting "P" is a fun idea; it's nice and quirky. And nice work on the Pirates, Padres, Giants and M's! I really dig the two Giants throwback designs, as well.  
 

This is a nitpick but a few of the cap logos look ginormous, namely the Orioles block "B" and the "P" on the Pirates road throwback. 

Thanks! I love that Phillies throwback as well. Yeah the template I have can be a little finicky with applying the cap logos especially with certain fonts. I try to get them to where they're legible but not too big.

St Louis Cardinals

 

Cardinals home stays as is. The away uniform gets the St. Louis wordmark. The alternates are loosely base on the uniforms from the 70's. I kept the current logos and wordmarks to help them feel more like a wordmark than being a throwback. The home throwback is from 1922 and the away throwback comes from1900

Tampa Bay Rays

 

The Rays don't have a whole lot to pull on as far as history so their home, away, and alternates are brought over with the dark blue alternate getting grey pants. I really wish they had a Tampa Bay wordmark, but oh well. The throwbacks are the uniforms from their inaugural season in 98.

Texas Rangers

 

Doing this set for the Rangers has shown me that I really like what the Rangers already have as uniforms. They have a really good balance with their red and their blue. I realy like how their home focuses more on red and their road uniforms focus more on blue it brings a nice balance in a way. I carried that over to my series here. The home drops the script and instead uses the font of the away uniform. The red alternate becomes the home alternate and the blue alternate drops the baby blue and becomes the away alternate. For the home throwback we go back to their inaugural look in the 70's and the away is from the 80's. This is one of my personal favorites in the series along with Miami.

Toronto Blue Jays

 

The Blue Jays are another team that have a great look. Home and away stay as is. The Blue alternate becomes their home alternate. Instead of going with the sky blue alternate I introduced a dark blue away alternate. The home and away throwbacks are from the teams inaugural year so you still get a sky blue uniform.

Washington Nationals

 

Here we are at the end of the series. So the Nationals Home and away both get the script wordmarks on the front. They also balance out their use of red and blue. The alternates are a combination of all of their current alternates for the most part. Both feature the capitol building caps and the flag W logo. The home alternate is given a red base with blue highlights and the away alternate is given a blue base with red highlights. Now for the throwbacks I could see some people being upset at the Nationals wearing Expos, but there's really no other option for the Nationals and I think it's nice getting to see the Expos every once in a while. The MLB allowing the Nationals to wear Expos uniforms in real life lends credence to this choice as well. I know it's a Hurricanes wearing Whalers incident, but overall I think it will be positively received.

There was always the 1924 Senators uniforms, going back to or a tribute to the Homestead Greys. Either would have been better than the Expos Uniforms, for Montreal fans it's a painful reminder that their team, for all intents and purposes, no longer exists, and for the Nationals, why are they wearing a uniform of a team that played in the second worst stadium in baseball and had a cheapskate owner?

 

Either a throwback to one of the few times the Sens had a winning season or a Negro League tribute is better than a team that played in Montreal. For me, revisiting the Baseball history of DC would be preferable to the team wearing an Expos shirt.

The other uniforms are okay, but are a bit let down by the solid colour socks - stirrups you've used, as it has for many of the teams here. I understand using solid colour socks with no detail for some teams (The Yankees), but for others, it just looks like a missed opportunity for alternate logos, the DC interlocking logos would have looked good on the non-Expos uniforms.
