I saw this on the Tigers' official site. Does anyone know if Detroit plans on bringing this logo back or is this just an isolated incident?

EDIT: It looks like other teams are doing this as well so nevermind...

looks like a simple throwback baseball card lgraphic. Nothing more. Calm down.

Bad gimmick.

Many teams that have changed their uniforms and/or logos since 1985 look ridiculous. The Phillies' players are wearing red and white with the current wordmark, but the logo and design are based the old maroon "swirly P". And what of the 4 teams that didn't exist in 1985?

It works OK for a few teams with timeless looks (St. Louis, NYY, Detroit, Cubs, LA Dodgers), but this wasn't thought out well enough to cover most teams.

I don't think it is that big a deal. I think everyone realizes they are using old/outdated logos in some instances. As for the teams that didn't exist, just plug in existing logos over the old template.

If you were mixing and matching uniforms (ball-in-glove mixed with modern Brewers logo, for example -- haved I touched a nerve yet? :P ), that would be different.

if they ever do update the 1985 logo, I really hope they make it look close to the Monkey Wrench Concept

I just realized how funny that old Tigers logo is. It looks like it'd been watching the Tigers of the past few years and is appauled or scared to be associated with the team! *LOL*

Excellent work, lilg!!! But I like tne current logo.

Agreed on the logo being great. Although I consider it an improvement on the others, I would still like the tiger to be more refined. Looks a little too hard edge, sharp. Great work though.

I always thought the tiger in that old logo looked a little weird, until I saw a picture of a pissed off tiger that still has his eyes wide open. There isn't anything funny about this:
