Don't have those NHL helmet marks...wish I did.

Here are the current New York Rangers uniform scripts - aside from the color differences, I'm not seeing much of a difference between what the Mothership has, and my own official graphics:

Home Uniform Script - 2003-2004 through present:

NewYorkRangers_HUS0101a_2004-9999_SCC_SR

Road Uniform Script - 2003-2004 through present:

NewYorkRangers_RUS0101a_2004-9999_SCC_SR

Alternate Uniform Script - 2010-2011 through present:

NewYorkRangers_AUS0101a_2011-9999_SCC_SR

Man those 'RANGERS' scripts just look weird and awkward. It's like the outline couldn't decide to be just an outline or a drop shadow. Plus the shadow seems to be dropping opposite ways on some letters. WTF mate?

The lettering looks different here to me, mostly in the corner of the G, but it could just be a case where the official graphics don't match the real-life stuff. I've been trying to get to the bottom of the Blackhawks' logo thing and it's just a great big mess. I don't think they finally standardized the well-drawn half-smiling Indian Head until 2000 or so.

This looks more right to me, but the rendering seems a little sloppy. The letters aren't the same size, come on

I agree re: official vs. actual.

I addressed some of the Blackhawks logo issues a few years ago; I'll try to find what I came up with.

Might be time to update the AL Champs. I'm not positive, but I assume they ditched the black shadowing on their logos by now

Still not sure about that. Just today, my friend posted a picture of her brother holding up an old Hawks shirt, probably from the late '80s/early '90s:

And that's clearly none of the logos in that timeline. You can tell by the eye: what's supposed to be the pupil, I guess, is much pointier in that '80s/'90s logo.

The Black is still on there...I posted all of the correct Royals' primary marks earlier in the thread.

Another example of "official" graphics not always being in sync with what's actually worn. Oh - and vector graphics really didn't exist until the early '90s.

Watching a Red Wings-Blackhawks game from the 1995 playoffs, it's the what's-worn Indian Head with the tan keyline on the sweaters, but the vector version on the ice and in the graphics. Interesting stuff. You'd have to think that if any logo would be subject to all the vagaries of different means of reproduction at a time when everything is getting really technical, it would be the Blackhawks' primary.

Remember, too, the secondary logo with the tomahawks and C was totally different between fabric (one-serifed wishbone C) and graphic (sans-serif) for years. It might even still be, but the mothership has taken to only counting the fabric one.

Yep - the official version has the sans-serif one.

Nobody probably gives two :censored:s about European hockey, but since Jokerit has such a great logo, it's good to know they wore this travesty in the wild 90's. 1998-2000 to be exact.

I'm guessing it won't end up on the site, but whatever.

I also have seen this problem with the Hawks logo, I'm recreating the blues initial innaugural game ticket from the kiel center and it has a completely different Hawks logo than any of the ones I have. It's has the more pointed eye, white outline around the earing, different hair shape and kinda minor head dress issues. I'll try to post a pic later

On the St. Louis Cardinals page:

  • The jersey logo shown as 1924 - 1948 is actually 1936 - 1948
  • The jersey logo shown as 1957 - 1997 is actually 1966 - 1997
  • The jersey logo shown as 1998 - Pres is actually 1999 - Pres
  • Referencing the below, none of the jersey logos prior to 1936, or the 1949 - 1950, 1956, 1957 - 1965, or 1998 jersey logos are on the Cardinals' mothership page
This is from a logo catalog created by the Cardinals

I have the official versions of all of them...will post later.

Just checking on status for posting these Cardinals jersey logos. Thanks for your service to the forum community.

SaintLouisCardinals_PMK0100a_1966-1997_S

We addressed this years ago on this board, but the redesign in 1998 originally had a Red beak on the bird (as well as on the "bird on a bat" uniform script) initially. Was modified in 1999.

The Atlanta Hawks new primary logo. The old one is not used anywhere on their website, court, or uniforms.

The primary mark did not change. The logo you're referring to is the new secondary mark:

If you go to Hawks.com, look at the court, uniforms, or anywhere else, the primary is clearly being phased out. It's nowhere on the team website.
