Maps with sports logos on them

Recommended Posts

When I was growing up, I was always studying maps and logo as well. So I thought, why not and try to see what are some of the good maps out there with sports logos on them that shows their location.

Sure, some maps with logos could not be 100% accurate, but I'm probably talking more about presentations.

Sometimes it's just fun to see a map with all of the logos so you can see how far and close the teams are to each other.

Here's some examples that I personally like:

Those are just a FEW examples of what I like.

Here's one that probably shouldn't be posted in this thread because....it's just too plain: http://springtrainingmagazine.com/maps/grapemap.jpg

Feel free to post some examples that you think would look great! It could be from any league, any conference, any division, any sport, any level, any-anything!

Here is an old one Nike put together for MLB - http://zeitgeistinap...09/06/ucob1.jpg

It sucks living in the unincorporated territories.

I don't mind it--you can pick your team (as long as you stay with your selection).

That said, when I lived in the Salt Lake area, I didn't know many Rockies fans. In fact having lived in two states in unincorporated territories--Idaho and Utah, there were more Braves or Cubs fans because we could get TBS and WGN, so we if we wanted to see baseball, those were the teams we watched.

BTW, the posts so far in this thread have been killer for those of us who are too lazy to click on links--this is the only one I've clicked so far, so I'll make it an inline image.

They should have it so the Yankees, Red Sox, Mets, and Phillies have stakes in Florida, and then the Marlins have one little tiny piece belonging to one fan. The Diamondbacks don't have THAT many fans either.

I had an older version of something like this growing up - obviously different stadiums and less teams in the 80's, but it was a really cool poster I had framed in my room as a kid:

I had a hockey version of this as a puzzle as a kid.... I wonder where it is...

I wonder how farm leagues factor into this.

Iowa is almost 100% Cubs, which I could justify since the Iowa Cubs are an associated farm team for Chicago.

Same for the little "northern spike" that the Royals have - the (formerly) Omaha Royals (now Stormchasers) feed into Kansas City.

They don't. It was a promo for whatever campaign they had. All it is supposed to be is a map designating a territory for each team for something like "loyalty to where you're from" or something like that. There's no actual rhyme or reason to the borders/delineation, it's just "oh, there's a couple of teams in proximity here, let's squeeze them in and draw a funky border that looks like it'd be an old map". Don't read into it more than that. If it were realistic for instance, there just wouldn't be a Mets section. It'd be overwhelmingly Yankees everywhere.

Even from a pure geographical standpoint, the Marlins shouldnt go above Orlando, let alone the Panhandle or southern parts of Georgia. I know people in the Panhandle (that aren't northern transplants) are usually Braves or possibly Rays fansb but Marlins, that's a stretch.

My guess is when they designed these made-up borders, they didn't want Braves territory extending too much into Florida as (even if true) it would be kind of insulting to the two Florida teams that they can't even cover their own state. Agreed that it would make more FAKE sense if the Rays went futher north instead of the Marlins.

Is Fort Myers/Naples supposed to be without a team, or is that white part just uninhabited Everglades?

I'm curious to know if all of Canada is behind the Blue Jays, especially once the Expos left.

I think it is inland Monroe County (the Everglades) though it looks like Collier County (Naples/Marco Island/Immokalee) is mistakenly put there in white (it is either disputed or Marlins territory).

I see on the map Fort Myers/Lee County is disputed between the Rays and Marlins (though this is Red Sox Country <_<).
