Sports logo prototypes

Recommended Posts

Here is a better shot of that Blues prototype.

The Rockies wore the Scouts jerseys with the Rockies logo tacked onto the front. I'm not sure if it was photo ops only or if they actually wore it for the 1976/77 pre-season.

And I know this pic has been posted before in regards to Ottawa but still...

I would love to see this one as a throwback maybe for honoring the 1992 team in a game vs say, montreal?

AND I do recall seeing a logo for the TB Lightning that had the wordmark of LIGHTNING which had the bolt lightning underneath that one.. anyone know if that one is in existance?

Casey holding a photo of a Met uniform prototype:

The tail eventually made an appearance on the Mets' wordmark for the 1993 and 1994 seasons only.

Love the sock stripes.

There was perhaps another Mets prototype - was a report before that first season indicating that their unis would have orange trim.

I was watching a clip from a 1992 episode of 60 Minutes about St. Petersburg's efforts to get a baseball team. Apparently future Devil Rays owner Vince Naimoli had Tampa Bay Giants logos and uniforms designed when it looked like the Giants were coming to town. See 5:07-5:17. There's a decent look at a wordmark and the proposed road jersey.

The interview with 1992 Bud Selig is a bonus.

I knew the Giants were that close to moving to Tampa Bay, but I didn't know the Mariners almost did too. That was an interesting watch!

It's very sad that historic teams with great legacys like the Giants and As were (and in one case still are) relegated to obscurity and uncertainty. Is it simply coincidence that they both are based in the bay area, or a commentary on the sports / economic climate there? It's just sports-tragic in the case of the As, who boast so many titles and HOFers and had such a history in Philadelphia.

Well, I think it's a simple effect of relocation. I remember a few years ago how shocked my then-teenaged niece was when I explained that the Rams had a history before they moved to St. Louis.

Of course, it's also worth remembering that if we lived in an alternate universe where teams never relocated, all of our sports leagues would be even more heavily East Coast based (and we'd wonder about weird things, such as why the Yankees are in Baltimore or why MLB has teams in Buffalo and Providence). :)

Hi gang, I'm a new poster, but have been lurking the boards for some time. I came across this topic and recalled some pics I had come across a while back of the Broncos redesign back the mid-90's. Not sure if this has been posted on another thread before, but I didn't see it in this one, so here goes...

Just imagine the sheer volume of "Deal With It" avatars this would've produced. lol

Those Broncos logos look pretty cool. Although I can see why they didn't go with the top right one. Looks a bit like a seahorse.

Agreed. I do like the roundel at top center though.
