hi,

this has pestered me for years and years, so, even though most of you will think it's beyond dumb, i have to ask:

on the the caps of the cubs, does the 'c' stand for chicago or cubs?

on the buccos cap, does the 'p' stand for pittsburgh or pirates?

on the phillies cap, does the 'p' stand for philadelphia or phillies?

as for the angels cap, i sat without hesitation that the 'a' stands for angels, as the wore the 'a' in one form or another on their cap for years when they were the california angels.

what do you think?

i'm seeing my shrink next tuesday at 2 pm about this pressing dilemma.

Although im not 100% sure, and i havent looked in to this, i would assume that those logos are mostly just generalized logos playing off of the fact that both the city and nickname start with the same letter. Except for the Angels because again they used to be known as the California Angels where their logo depicted a halo ontop of an A, in that case it could have only been for ANGELS.

Good question though, maybe somebody else has a little more detail response to this. :D

I actually think it's for the city name. It goes with a common trend.

B for Boston

St L for St. Louis

NY for Mets and Yankees

M for Marlins

A for Arizona

SF for San Francisco

LA for Los Angeles

S for Seattle

blah, blah, blah....

Seems reasonable enough, right?

so wait... how does 'M for Marlins' fit the common trend of the letter being for the city name? :rolleyes::D

Ahh...you beat me to it. I dunno, for some reason, I always thought the the two P's and the C stood for the club's names (Cubs, Phillies, Pirates)...

Timmy,

I think that in the case of same letter city and nicknames, it's whatever you want it to be, I've always figured it to be for the city, but I doubt you'll get a straight answer from anyone since most of these hat designs have been around since the early 20th century. There really aren't any definate answers seeing as there are planty of teams that use team nicknames on their caps or mascots. Hope I helped a little.

PS There are no stupid questions, just ignorance.

the Angels A-def. Angels

Cubs C-i've always gone with it standing for Cubs

Pirates P-again, i've always gone with it standing for Pirates

Phillies P-goin with Philadelphia, seeing as Phillies is just shorthand Philadelphia anyway

before you ask, i'm a Cubs fan. the sig and logos are reminders of my NHL Revivals project and aren't intended in any way for the baseball team.

who's the Florida State player to the far right in your sig?

Speaking for him,that's Arkansas QB Matt Jones,who will be a SR this year and will likely go high in the NFL draft....as a RECIEVER.I'm the resident Arkansan here so thats why I made that note.Also,why exactly DO you have Jones on your sig?

As far as the cap letters I've always seen them to stand for the club's mascots

in the case of the Cubs,Pirates,and Phillies.

I think he was talking about the player on FreeKobe's sig, rather than me. ^_^

However, since you asked -- Matt Jones was my #2 pick in the NCFA Fantasy Draft. Carnell Williams (left) was taken in round 1

LOL, so much for staying on topic. :D

Anyways from left to right it goes:

-Marcus Vick (Mike's younger bro)

-Steve Smith, Soph. WR at USC (most likely their #1 WR this year)

-Lorenzo Booker, Soph(i belive) RB at FSU (the highly regarded high school propesct from a few years back that was some how able to escape from USC's southern cal recruiting machine)

There ya go more info than ya needed :D
