Name That Font!

I haven't had the stomach to bust through 39 pages of questions and answers, so forgive me if this has been covered already.

After looking through a fistful of floppy disks (remember those?) last night, I have re-installed Fontagrapher on my old Quadra and have done a smattering of retouching/shaping to create a sans-serif font which will mimic the writing on some of the infamous Rainbow Guts jerseys -- i.e., Houston Astros from 1975-1992, Tuscon Toros from roughly 1983-1992, and the Asheville Tourists from about the same era.

In addition, I had created two fonts about 10 years ago, one called Polo Grounds and one called Fenway, which uses typefaces from old Gold Medal Sporting Goods catalogs. These fonts mimic the New York/San Francisco Giants (and the Pirates, kind of) as well as the Boston Red Sox. I know that there are some fonts out there that do the trick already (Bosox, TGI-Friday, Saloon), but these use the shape of actual sporting-goods catalogue letters.

Now, aside from RapidTrak, where can I do some uploading?

Uploading fonts? Dafont.com?

(sorry, I don't know what RapidTrak is; all I got on Google was some linear accelerator.

But Dafont.com is the best place for (free) fonts, if that's what you're asking.

I want to upload, not download.

Did you ever get them posted? If so, where?

The Levitra logotype.

Try Telegrafica.... it's a free font that should come really, really close.....

I found the font listed as Telegrafico, if that helps people find it.

Thanks for this one, since I was about to ask for the old WCW Nitro namebar font...and this is the same font!
