Kc royals concepts

Recommended Posts

For these, I used the lighter blue as the main color, and made 2 alternates, one powder and one royal blue. I made a set of gray roads, but then after being egged on by STL Fanatic made a set of blue ones too. For the roads I used the Kansas City cursive script from Chris' site, masterfully modified on photoshop by moi. :D LMK what you think homies.

Not very original or earth-shattering, but not offensive to the eyes either.  Great execution, meh design that's pleasing enough to the eye to work...

I wouldn't be too shocked to see an MLB team go back to powder blue (white pants please) after the Nuggets latest switch

I hadn't really thought about that combination which I assume you would intend for a home set (because of the white pants).  It actually sounds pretty good, although it would presume that no other teams decide to go (or go back) to a powder blue road set.

Hello all,

I am a longtime lurker here, but have never registered.

Chazberg, I love your work on this design. I am a Mariners fan now, but was raised on the Royals when I lived in Missouri.

All I can say is the Royals should wear powder blue. Period. End of story. Sorry, Chris, but it shouldn't be as a home dark jersey with white pants, it should be on the road. They won a series and were in the pennant race nearly every year they wore powder blue roads. It is a traditional uniform for them. Who says only gray roads can be "traditional."

One correction to your design though. You used the new "Royals" script. I know most can't tell the difference, but the old one treated them really well despite its "imperfect" nature. I don't see the Yankees tweaking their "NY" to make it more angular.

Anyway. Great work. If I ran the Royals they would be wearing blue roads and stop complaining that they are a small market... and they be in the Series by decade's end.

Anyway. Greetings everyone.

I can't but love your work; 1) I am a Royals fan, I was here when they started pushing Oakland for the title in the early 70's   2) I still have my powder blue jersey with my name personalized on it  3) You've done a good job.  

I do like the changes you've made from the previous original unis.  Keep up the good work! :D

Yes the game (#6, 2-1 Royals win) counted and we did "steal" the series.  Just think of it as a give from the Baseball Gods.  We couldn't have George Brett & the boys retire w/o a title.

I remember with the Royals and Cardinals both had powder blue road unis, v-neck pull-overs. :P

STL-

I was only six at the time. I remember the big fuss about stealing the series and I kept saying that we had won game 7 11-0 so I didn't understand what they were whining about.  :laugh:

Yeah, I realize that you guys got jobbed. But as a current Mariners fan, I would take an October victory of that kind rather than another loss in the ALCS.

How about M's-Cards this fall. Homefield for Seattle.

the one thing that has always bothered me about the royals old powder blues (and the jays too for that matter) was that the lettering and numbers on them were white on a powder blue background. on a sunny day the glare made it difficult for them to be read. if the royals were to return to powder blue (IMO they are the only team that should) the lettering should say "Kansas City" in BLUE outlined in white and the numbers should be the same.

Hey guys, just wanted to say thanks for all the support. Oh, and could someone fill me in on this "stolen series"? I'm not much of a baseball history buff, and by that I mean basically anything before the 1990's. No, I'm not 12 years old, just ignorant i guess. :D

Well I honestly wasn't alive for it, but it all happened in 1985.

Cards vs. Royals. Cards had a 3-2 series lead. I don't know the specific score or anything, or ever who was home. I do know the Royals were down to their final 3 outs. Little ground ball to I guess short. Normal throw out to first, but bam...Ump (Denkface...errr Don Denkinger) calls him safe. It's not even that close of a play. It's obvious the runner should be out. Well this would spark a rally of enough magnitude to win that game. Now the Cards still had a shot in game 7 (you can argue if they deserved it they woulda won it here, but man they were gonna take it in six), but they let that call in game 6 get the best of them, and I believe they argued a ton a their way to a blowout loss and unfair World Series defeat.

Just want to point out a couple of things about the 9th inning that Cardinal fan tends to forget:

First, the Royals' next batter Steve Balboni popped one up to the first base side which Cardinal 1B Jack Clark dropped. Balboni then singled.

Second, Jorge Orta who got on base on the Denkenger call was put out at third base on a fielder's choice so was not involved in the final play.

And remember it was only game 6. Good teams don't let bad calls get to them.

to finish up the series, (I watched the game)

The Royals got Sunburg (Catcher) to 2nd when pinch hitter Dane Iorg (use to play for StL) singled softly to centerfield, the throw was close but Darryl Porter's (who used to play for KC) tag was too late and the Royals won game 6 2-1.

They proceeded to pound the Cardinals in game 7, 11-0 when Darryl Motley hit a 3 run HR in the 1st that sent KC on it's way.

Yea KC! :)
