Yep, gold halos all around for the 50th anniversary. It's more in line with the classic yellow halo the Angels used for years, so let's hope they decide to make it a permanent change.

And no "Los Angeles," either, which is too bad, because vertically arched "Los Angeles" in the Angels' lettering looks really neat.

No, it doesn't.

Can't wait to pick up my gold haloed hat, though. Definitely hoping it sticks past this season, even though I'd like to see a yellower gold.

Is this just a one year switch?

BTW can the Angels please bring back the original halo hats as a throwback?

Those are the most awesome hats they ever wore.

Disagree, with all due respect:

one of the other board guys made this. I think it's neat.

That's the shade of yellow they should be using. Agreed with the guy upthread who said you can hardly tell it's gold.

Not sure about those old 1961 halo hats. Seems like the halo would get all bent out of shape and wind up looking kind of haphazard. Their best hat is the current one.

It doesn't go all the way around? You mean where it's filled in solid between the halo and the A?

The yellow of the halo shouldn't be touching the red of the A. I look at it like everything should have its own outline, not just the outside of the shape. IMO that style only works when everything in the logo / wordmark is connected, like a patch.

I don't want to see "Los Angeles" on the Angels uniforms. I hope Arte Moreno has some sense slapped into him and he puts "Anaheim" back on the jerseys.

Oh, I see what you mean now. The halo always touches the A in the current set, and I guess I've never thought anything of it.

The Angels should backdoor a Los Angeles jersey into the set by having it be their contribution to the Hispanic Night trend in the vein of Los Rangers and Los Mets. It says "The Angels," and they are! I'd laugh.

The Angels have been consistently competitive under Moreno's stewardship.

It never ceases to amaze me that some individuals would like to see the franchise return to the dark times.

Pre-emptive dismissal of "they were the Anaheim Angels under Disney ownership when they won a world championship": yeah, but that was a mostly forgettable white-bread wild card team and their success can be attributed much more to dumb luck and small sample size than the perennial organizational excellence they've had under Moreno. And he lowered beer prices, too!

At least they weren't wearing periwinkle featherwings when they gritty-grindy'd their way to a championship with David Eckstein and Darin Erstad. Be thankful for the little things.

Yeah, maybe the script doesn't look half bad. Regardless, it's a principle thing :P

And exactly agree on the shade of gold. That is the perfect Angels logo. I also actually kind of like the logo without the beveling on it. And as far as the blue in the logo, I always saw it as a background mounting to the A/Halo rather than an outline of the A itself.

As far as the halo hats, with the structure of the New Era hats, it might be fine on most guys, but it'd look like ass if anyone went the Tim Lincecum route with their hat. I'd have to actually see it on the hat or a person to judge it. It might be just a little too gimmicky now I think as well. I personally think it just looks way different on the 1960s type of hats than it would on the current style of hats. I'd be an interesting thing to try as like a throwback or alternate, but I don't think I'd want it full time by any means.

Of course you must be referring to their 2002 World Series Title as the ANAHEIM Angels? Not quite certain what Moreno's done for the team besides a legacy of being swept by the Red Sox on an annual basis and bungling potential major free agent signings.

A lot of that "Dumb Luck" can be contributed to how amazingly stupid Dusty Baker is.

Yeah, they were lucky that Dusty is so dumb.

Preacher, the Red Sox were peckerslapping the Angels long before Arte Moreno built a billboard. Have we forgotten the self-inflicted shot heard 'round the world?

I agree...Anaheim Angels is the superior name.

Here's a scary thought: "Los Angeles" on the front and "Anaheim" on the back nameplate for all players.

Sure it's possible from the team with the most stupid name in all of sports. Not the Angels part, that's a great name...just the other paragraph of their team's name.
