Is it just me, or do the Jays overuse the whole maple leaf thing? I mean I get it, you're Canadien.

that little maple leaf on the patch there is the only maple leaf that's been on the jays uniform in the past 3 years

so no, they dont

these anniversairy patches are getting a little out of hand. i mean, 10, 25, 50 years i can see. but 30th? and the vikings had a 45th ann. patch this whole year. since when did every 5th year give teams the excuse to design a patch?

at least this one is well designed..

I'll reiterate again how nice it is to see the Jays using the word "season" instead of "anniversary." Hooray for good grammar!!

Hooray for comprehension, logic and common sense as well. See, it isn't that hard... <_<

I think this logo fails simply because it is lacking something rather important to Blue Jays history:

So, it is not as good as the one that the Jays used for their 25th season:

I really like the idea of incorporating a former logo, especially when that former logo is distinctive and iconic, as the great old Jays' logo was.

Another example of this would be the Milwaukee Bucks' 30th anniversary logo, which showed the old deer alongside the current one:

(I seem to remember the Orioles also doing something similar. But I don't find an example of it on Chris's Orioles page, so maybe I am imagining it.)

Completely agree. The 30th season patch is alright, but it only shows a logo they've used for 2 of those 30 seasons.

That Bucks one is nice, I hadn't seen that before. I know the A's had a patch recently (30 years in Oakland maybe?) and it had "Philadelphia" and "Kansas City" on it, which was cool.

I hate when franchises disregard their history.
