Hollywood Stars - Fantasy Baseball Team

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

For the past few days I've been working on my fantasy team's new identity. Last year I was called the Minnesota Mammoths, and I did win the league. However, the name got tiresome. When I was looking for places to relocate (towns/cities without MLB teams), I looked at California as an option. I remember watching a video about 3-4 months ago about the PBL in the 1940's.

Anyways I love the Hollywood Stars name so I decided to give my team its namesake.

So, let me introduce to you, The Hollywood Stars!

Let me know what you think, I haven't posted it to my leagues facebook group yet, I wanted some C&C first.

When I think Hollywood Stars I think black, gold, white and maybe a little silver as team colours but that's just me.

I really like the alternate with the sign and to me what looks like spotlights on the star. That screams primary to me more than the star.

I don't know if you meant to do this but the home jersey is off-white/sand and the pants are white, it makes it look like a mismatched jersey as they are both used as light colours for pants and jerseys in the MLB (San Diego). I would pick one of either white or off-white/sand and stay with it for the jersey and pants.

I actually have reasons why I picked the colors, I should have mentioned it before.

-Red is for the iconic red carpets at primeres

-Gold for a trophy like an Oscar or Golden Globe

-black & gray for the begining of movies (a black and white feel)

I did have white at first but wasnt pleased with how it looked.

As for the home uniforms that's a mistake on my part. I have two files of the sets, one with the sandy jerseys one with white. I guess I never saved the sandy jersey completely and didnt save the pants. I wanted a "Golden Age" feel to them, but from looking at how the sandy ones turned out, white would be better.

I intended for an H in the primary star logo, but it would appear to much like the new Astro set. The secondary featuring a star above the Hollywood sign being shown in spotlights was the final product of a failed inugural season patch actually. I could see it being a primary however.

That's what I was going to say, most people associate red stars with Communism. However, given how much Hollywood got screwed over in the McCarthy hearings, it might be a fitting tribute.

Ah yes, the red scare. Most of those actors never acted again

Yeah...red stars, and gold stars on red, are far too communist for a Hollywood baseball team. I like the idea of including red for the red carpets, but it should definitely be demoted to a tertiary color. What should replace it, I'm not sure, but it's just too Soviet/Mao right now.

I played around with some colors.

I took monkeypower's advice on black, white and gold. I used red, white, and blue because those originally were the stars colors, I'd hate to turn this team into a RWB one, even more so because the logo is a star.

Out of context, the RWB combo is great...but I think that the star logo and the color combo is too similar to other baseball teams. That combo screams Rangers or Phillies.

Of the other three, Black-White-Gold is my favorite...as a suggestion, why not play with a light orange?

I'd say either of the two on the right...of course, using orange in any capacity may be a little too Astros-esque.

Just had another thought...why not use the Los Angeles flag for your colors?

I'm partial to blue (navy) and red like the original Stars, but that's just me.

Way too Texas Rangers like

Fair points...I like those combos with Red-Yellow-Green...especially the two with the green backgrounds (green with the yellow star is awesome). That said, though, Black-White-Gold is probably still my favorite.

Gorgeous.

One suggestion, though: have you tried the numbers on the other side of the jersey front for the home and the away? It would probably look ridiculous on the alt.
