Maple Leafs Question - Does Anyone Know Why..

Does anyone know why the word 'Toronto' is off-centre in the Maple Leafs' retro logo? Is there a story behind it?

I was looking at the idea of the team having that old logo 'modernized' for next season and just wondered why 'Toronto' was completely off-centre while 'Maple Leafs' was centred. Perhaps modernizing it will simply include centre-ing?

Looking at the logo a little closer, the 'Maple Leafs' portion is NOT centred, in fact it's right aligned. Not sure of the explanation for that either.. Any answers?

I have a theory. It's old! When it came out, they didn't have the means of mass producing perfectly accurate logos. The one on my jersey is off centre as well.

This is probably the right answer.

i have read that each and every maple leaf crest that was sewn onto the actual sweaters from 1927 thru 1967 was hand cut (letters & leaf & even veins), the letters & veins were then hand sewn onto the leaf, which was then hand sewn onto the sweater. obviously, not every crest was exactly the same.

maybe the leafs and the nhl is paying "tribute" to the days of yore by these imperfections.
