Oakland Athletics Concept


Audiodrama

Recommended Posts

1. don't say they should be in vegas.

2. i like it a lot. still more of a fan of the yellow/gold than vegas gold, but it still looks good.

3. prefer the current "A's" as opposed to the "A's" used in the concept, which are from pre 1996 or something like that.

4) like the white alt, hate the green one. your green is too dark imo anyways.

5) and finally HOW CAN YOU GET RID OF THE ELEPHANT ON THE BASEBALL. SHAME ON YOU.

still a very good concept though.

1) Why do they need to be in Vegas? Northern California is a better market.

2) Why do they need Vegas gold? It's become overused, and their existing green and gold contrasts perfectly well.

Thank you!!! Plus if the A's were to ever move it would be to Sacramento not Vegas. Plus Oakland is a terriffic market for baseball. McAfee has to be the most easily accessable park in the MLB today

Call me nuts, but the A's just don't look right in Vegas gold. It either loses its contrast between the two colors or the gold looks too washed out (depending on what you're looking at)...

The vegas gold doesn't really contrast well enough. Their current green-and-gold is a lot better. The all-green alt almost looks black on my computer screen, and what I think are vegas gold stripes appear white. In other words, it's too dark. It is a great concept though. Good job!

This is a catch-22 for me. I love it, but at the same time, it's just not the A's. There's absolutely nothing wrong with what they currently have, and I think their home unis with the white cleats rank amongst the classiest uniforms in the league.

close enough...the A's used here is from 93 and before, then they switched to the current A's in 94.

Vegas or Sacramento?  Go with a move to San Jose and change the green instead to Aqua.

The Giants wont give up that territory and the whole Aqua/Teal phase died in the mid to late 90s

Giants won't give up that territory? SF/OAK/SJ are all considered the same market. The A's moving there really wouldn't hurt the market. As for the aqua, I threw that in there just to have a tie-in with the Sharks.

accually i think that the Giants have some grasp over the San Jose area and on top of that you would be suprised at how well the Baseball market is in the Sacramento area

Has anyone actually looked at the A's current hats? They use the "A's" that Unwind used, the supposed "old" one. The one that everybody says is the current one is only used on the logo and nowhere else. They still use this one on the hats, and I think it looks better, too.

I was gonna post an A's concept, but it looks so similar to his, except I use the current yellow (didn't even think of using Vegas gold), and the home and roads are vests with one green alt, much like his. After seeing Unwind's, I've decided there is no need for me to post mine at this time. I actually like his quite a bit. Do I think they should switch to vegas gold, I don't know. Don't really care. But the way he used it, it looks really sharp and I like it (except for the gold bills, but that's just me. I'm kinda against metallic bills, but they still look cool, in theory)

Keep it up Unwind. You continue to amaze me. :notworthy: (just to, in a friendly, fun matter, irk some opposers of overused :notworthy: . It's all in fun, guys :D )

very subtle differences, i will admit, but don't argue with an A's fan.

and I have the caps. they are more in between the current A and the older A, but the older ones are still different. don't make me bust out photos of them.

oakland ehs, you're actually wrong. Here is a picture of the current A's hat, courtesy of lids.com:

Notice that it's the logo you claimed was used on the pre-1994 hats.

Just to back it up, here is Danny Haren's current MLB.com profile shot, bearing the same hat:
