Top 5 Alternate Logos of Any Sport


Recommended Posts

Alternate logos often seem to be cooler than the actual logos that a lot of teams use. What are your top 5 alts of all the major sports currently, excluding colleges (in order)? I'll kick things off...

5. Suns' rising phoenix logo

4. Indians' cursive I

3. Blazers' flaming basketball

2. Browns' block 'B' football (The team lists this as the official logo, but since no major media outlet uses it, I guess its still an alt.)

1. No doubt, the Edmonton Oilers' evil oil drop.

This is a really decision to make. Here are five of my favourites in to particular order

Cleveland Cavaliers: sword through 'C'

Jacksonville Jaguars: Full jaguar/sleeve logo

San Jose Sharks: Fin logo

Oilers: Working man

Milwaukee Brewers: M/cap logo

I saw, I came, I left.

In ascending order:

5. Blackhawks' "C" with tomahawks

4. Titans' "T" sword

3. Lightning sleeve patch (FLA outline with bolt)

2. Cubs' "C" with cub body

1. Buccaneers' pirate ship on sleeve.

It is what it is.

i'm taking into accout older logos as well, so heh.

5-Blackhawks C-tomahawks

4-80s Bear head

3-Bucks antlers

2-Cubs 79-93 Madcub

1-Cubs 94-96 mad bear

i woulda listed teh pitchign Cub that Rockford used to use, but i decided to restrict things to big league teams. that, and the 3d Senator would be here but they sort of use it like it's a primary. the ones I listed are/were clearly alternates.

I too like those logos, although I vastly prefer the old Brewers alt to the new one:


That was a sharp logo. If they had adopted it as the primary in 1996, the Brewers would have had almost perfect uniforms. :D
