Help Identifying Sport Logo

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone could help me identify a logo. I can only describe it and hope you know what I am talking about. It could be super old and the team may not exist.

It is a bold O with an I in the middle going over the O. Both letters are Orange and the background is navy blue.

Thanks for any help.

I also have another but its not a logo. All I know is that the baseball cap is blue with thin white stripes going upwards on the cap.

Sounds like Phi, the Greek letter.

Where did you see it?

Yes like that. It was on a sweatshirt with a matching hat. The hat had the same symbol on it and was navy. There was a number on the back of the sweatshirt in orange.

If it helps the person who wore it used to live in Ohio and now lives in the Northwest where I believe he bought it at an old sport linen shop, forget the formal name. The shop is long gone though.

Na he is a college professor that teaches a sports history class and knows everything there is about sports. He said that no one has ever guessed the team/league before. Any more ideas? :(

More like cyrillic (300+ million people write in it) than greek (10 million). And although cyrillic is partly derived from greek, the greek alphabet was itself derived from phoenician.

Well then get a picture of it so we can see it. Descriptions only give us so many clues.

Thats not exactly how I remember it but it probably comes a bit bolder and a darker orange. The sweatshirt color is navy instead of maroon. But its better than nothing!

Their team colors dont have navy in them, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oorang_Indians :(

Wow, it was correct. That is what my teacher was looking for. It got me some extra credit and probably saved my grade. Im a poor student and dont really have much to give, unless you play a game called Team Fortress 2? :P
