Blackhawks Sleeve Logo

Recommended Posts

The logo I am asking about is this:

On my white jersey, the logo is consistent with the one presented on the website

On my black alternate jersey I purchased last season (CCM, replica, new 2007 from a store) the logo is slightly different. Needless to say, it's something I never really noticed before until I had the 2 jerseys side by side in front of me (my white one being a few years older)

1. Serif on the top half of the C

2. Font of C is less bold (thinner)

3. The "X" on the tomahawk is not an X in the center but rather it goes to the edges

the logo is consistent with the one being used currently:

so I have 2 questions

1. Is the this site just not up to date?

2. When did the switch/update to the logo occur?

Much thanks!

For the record, Chris' logo isn't old, it's just that all of the official files have that older style shoulder logo in them.

The 2007-2008 Blackhawks file still shows the previous version.

It happens...it's annoying, but it happens.

For as long as I can remember, the serifed "C" has adorned authentic Hawks jerseys. The non-serifed version seems to be a product of the mid-90's, and shows up as a secondary logo just about everywhere except the shoulders of authentic Hawks jerseys. But as you can tell, it's horribly inaccurate, and I don't understand why a more correct version of the secondary logo hasn't shown up. (At least Starter got it right on their replicas back in the day. Nike/Bauer and CCM... not so much.)

It has always been like this. The secondary logo used for merchandise is the one that is on the CCSL site. The sweaters have had the serif on the C for ages.

There was also a different Indian head on the sweaters until a few years ago that had gold trim and not as much of a smile.
