Minor-League, Indy & Summer Collegiate Baseball Logo / Uni Changes

Recommended Posts

I proposed this color scheme for them over 10 years ago while I was still in college!

Not suggesting they stole it, just tooting my own horn.

Durham's going with a Rangers inspired look, seemingly. I don't know why they'd want to use that ugly font and a black drop shadow, but it looks like it's coming.

Regarding Vermont:

Why are there 2 different "Champ"s?

The primary logo was crafted to resemble the costume and for the sleeve emblem we asked, "What if this identity existed all along, but there was a throwback Champ from yesteryear - what would that look like?" The sleeve emblem is the fraux throwback concept.

New Vermont Lake Monsters logo ... no word on hats or uniforms.

So when did Yoshi from Super Mario decide to rob banks?

EDIT: All jokes aside, its a pretty good logo.

I like it, although the S having two tails seems a little strange to me.

Hard seeing the caps etc on my phone, so I'll check those out later.

I think the cap logo is a downgrade (sorry Brandiose) ... a little too cartoony and just doesn't feel like a baseball logo to me. The wordmark is certainly better than the previous one though, and I'm curious to see what the uniforms will look like. Still think they never should've ditched the Vermont Expos though!

I wanna bring up the 66era logo and I have a question for Brandiose. For El Paso, you guys made the Chihuahua swinging the bone, similar to the Padre's Swingin-Friar logo, Which I get because SD is EP's parent club. The same can be said with the Eugen Emeralds' swingin-squatch logo. But I've gotta ask, what was the reasoning behind the Swingin-Mechanic logo? According to the minor league website, they are not an affiliate of the Padres. Was it an idea Inland came up with and you just followed along or what?

Count me in as someone who loves the new Lake Monsters' set. Not that the previous one was bad, but I like the new one a lot.

OK everybody...I think we all agree by now that Brandiose has jumped the shark.

Question is: at which rebranding did the jump take place?

Vermont is a definite upgrade, but looks like Yoshi joined TMNT

Great question! For the 66ers, they asked us to stay away from the Route 66 road sign. There was some trademarking/confusion issues with that emblem and so they wanted to tell the story of the people who worked on Route 66 - particularly the blue-collar mechanics in the Inland Empire. They also wanted a real modern look but also tribute to the minor league logos of the midcentury - most of which were swinging bats. There wasn't an intended Padres connection (different angles of the character as well).

The first time we jumped the shark was the Clearwater Threshers.

I was thinking the same thing. It really does look like someone used the 1980's version of the TMNT as a base for what they were designing.

New Vermont logos look a little too cartoonish for me. Ill probably pick up one of their old hats just because i loved it so much

Oakland A's online shop is still selling the old hats. I proudly rock the green alternate (that I never actually saw them wear on the field but whatever).
