I'm taking a break from the 90's remix and I've been working on a new project the last month. Browsing threw hockey logos on this site, I thought I recreate a bit of history and rehash the only second pro league in hockey in North America... The good old WHA. I've worked on 12 teams so far my goal is a even 20 made up of original era teams and a couple from the failed 2005 WHA that never got off the ground. Seeing as Reebok is a NHL staple right now I used the new Nike jersey that's being used for the Olympics as my base

But now here's the first team to be announced for my new WHA...

The Houston Aeros..

Stingers are done and yes I retained a yellow Away/Home jersey. My love of the stingers logo was the reason to start this thread

Thanks I modernised the the logo on the home and away but used the original logo on the 3rd with the original striping. I dunno If i'm adding the Jets and the oilers due to them being active NHL franchises ujju2. I did do a Quebec and a Whaler jersey for the New WHA. What I might do is move other WHA teams in to those cities.

Thanks I had fun with a couple of the 2005 teams just because they never even had jerseys to go by so I just made my own look for them

The cougar was actually a clip art piece i found in a bundle. I worked on 3 different logos but couldn't get the feel I want

YES YES YES on the Baltimore logo. That is great. If you could work the symbols in the stripes just a little more subtly than you've already got, and have some matching stripes on home and road, then it would be perfect.

Can't wait to see some more Canadian teams.

Sure! As for the Blades concept, I'm not totally sold on the shield logo. While I like it, it feels very cluttered. The old logo alone is solid enough for the crest. But, you could always close up the inside of the shield with the flag design and keep the Blades word mark and make that a shoulder patch/alternate.

If Cincinnati still had the Singers, I guarantee their colors would be different. Their black jerseys look dead on like Boston's. Plus everyone in Cincinnati hates black and gold together.
