Yankees Concept

Recommended Posts

Here's my concept design for the New York Yankees. I wanted to keep the great Yankee traditions, but also give them an updated look. I would love the C&C, but it's my first computer generated concept, so go easy on me :D

I love the uniforms but that "Yankees" script is a bit cheap-looking. Maybe you should try finding a font more similar to their current script. I also don't like the Copperplate NOB on the alternate, a simple athletic block would look better or even no NOB at all.

Overall, the presentation could be improved as well. The scripts, numbers, and logos look like they've been resized multiple times and are therefore blurry. Just make sure on your next concept to reduce this blurriness.

I see Colorado Rockies font for the New York script, which the colour is way off from the other blues. No. 42 is retired through out the league btw. The hats should remain all blue.

This is true but Mariano Rivera wears the number.

Not a fan of the alternate hat or the sleeveless jerseys. The logos are pretty nice.

Yeah, that still is Mariano Rivera's number.

I'm not sure that I really like the cut-offs for the Yankees, and I think that you should really make the numbers smaller, and the logos clearer.

I mentioned this in previous thread. The Yankees fans dont want an alternate. Bute, an altered road jersey is acceptable.

Because you speak for ALL Yankees fans, right?

I'm no Yankees fan, but I'd certainly like to see them loosen up and introduce an alternate.

Yankee fans don't want an alternate. Much like Browns fans don't want a logo on their helmet. It is a universal truth.

Its too traditional of a ball club, especially a BASEBALL club, to do something like that.

I revised my design a bit. When thinking of my Yankees concept I thought a sleeveless jersey would look good, but seeing it it just didnt look right. I took all your guys' critisms and made changes. I made sure all the blues matched, made the back numbers smaller, and cleaned up the scripts and logos. I used a new number style for the away unis, but I can't decide if I like it more than regular block style numbers. Tell me what you think of them.

Try a new font for 'New York', possibly use the same font for 'Yankees'. Try more solid and bold fonts, very athletic like.

To do something like THAT? You speak of it like it's against the bible to do such a thing. Have you ever heard of the Boston Red Sox? How about the White Sox? Maybe the Cincinnati Reds? Perhaps the Cubs, Phillies, or Pirates ring a bell? Guess what they all have in common; alternates. They all have alternates. Some even have...get ready for it...TWO alternates :shocked: . They all were established in the same year or prior to the year of the Yankees' establishment. What makes them any less "traditional" than the Yankees? I'm sure if you a bunch of Chicago fans that the Cubs/White Sox are less traditional than the Yankees, you might change you're mind in a minute or two. And "peeps like you"? Come on, man, you are seriously thinking that the majority of Yankee fans would disown the team for introducing an alternate? Let alone because your friend told you so? Yeah, that makes loads of sense.

You still have an alternate...

Leave him alone. If you're going to B*tch about this thread, then why bother sticking your nose in it in the first place. No one likes a downer.

. . .and by the way, Oakland, I'm really liking your progress so far, but I agree with Generic, the font for New York may have some room for improvement. Good job so far ;)

Hey listen man, chill our a tad. I know many folks from new york (used to live there) and trust me there is a prevailing anti-sentiment toward an alt. jersey.

If they do have an alternate, then fine - but it needs to be precise and simple, no different colored bill, no razzle dazzle font. Yankees fans like to keep it simple. At most, use a darnk navy jersey with NY on the chest. No name on back.

Something else to consider for this team is the owner, George steinbrenner. He is known for a very strict, staunch, conservative approach towards guiding the team. He actually has a rule stating that players cannot grow facial hair. Can you believe it?

When those other teams you mentioned are so entrenched in history that they tend to have rules like that, then come back. Until then, the yankees will for sure ne the pioneers of long-term serious tradition, for years and years to come.

I wasn't upset, I was just utterly confused among all other feelings by how determined you were to not have a alternate included in a set. I could have sworn I clicked on the "Concept" page, not the "Going Into Production Tomorrow" page. :upside:

Loogodude, its a concept. The guy's working on his skills and posting what he thinks the Yankees should wear. He doesn't care if Joe Yankeefan in the Bronx will accept an alternate jersey or not. It's irrelevant, 100% irrelevant, so drop it.

If you're going to add constructive criticism, go for it. But saying that the only good Yankees jersey is exactly what they have is both counter-productive and moronic. If you can't understand the purpose of the Concepts forum, perhaps you don't belong in here.

And to Oakland, you're definitely getting better, but I think you need to try matching the numbers on all the jerseys. I think it would be a big help in tying your whole set together. The different-numbered roads feel like they aren't a part of the rest of the set.

Look man, I dont look for problems. Just giving my honest two cents. Im sorry if I came across as harsh, but thats because I like to envision conepts on the field being used. Im sorry if i can take that too far sometimes, but its because i look for concepts that have a great change of being used. ITs not a knock on his design skills.

Really? The Tigers, Reds, Red Sox, Cubs, White Sox, Indians, Phillies, Cardinals*, Pirates, and Giants all had no qualms introducing various alternates throughout the years despite their status as "traditional" ball clubs.

And as far as overall "traditional" sports teams go (which you also implied a comparison to), the Bears, NFL Cardinals, Browns, Lions, Packers, NFL Giants, Eagles, Celtics, Bulls, Pistons, Lakers, Knicks, Sixers, Bucks, Sonics/Thunder, Bruins, Blackhawks, Red Wings, Canadiens, NHL Rangers, and Maple Leafs have all worn alternates or will wear them at some point or another.

The Yankees are not above any other team in baseball or sports overall except for in championships and payroll. If they never introduce an alternate ever, more power to them, but don't act like their long, storied existence prevents them from ever donning an alternate jersey in the future.

*Yes, the Cardinals actually wore red alternate uniforms one game which were then auctioned off for charity.

They have fashion jerseys out there for peeps like you.

No thanks, fashion jerseys are hideous and hardly ever match the teams' identities. The only fashion jersey I've ever liked is this Mets Players' Choice fashion jersey because the dark pinstripe / racing stripe look actually looks classy.
