sportslogos.net missing logo thread

Recommended Posts

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.

But due to the NBA's stupid logo change fee, it won't actually become the official primary logo.

Can we get the jerseys and/or the jersey logo for the Houston Astros' Tequilla Sunrise/Rainbow-guts uniform?

I'll get the other variations up soon, but here's one - Home and Road Uniform Script - 1975 through 1981:

ColorWerx, you've done it again! Another really well replicated logo!

To be clear - I'm not creating these...these are official graphics, taken from official vector logosheets created by the teams and leagues themselves.

All I am really doing is optimizing the colors for viewing in RGB. Matching the colors digitally as close as possible to the intended shades.

Which is itself a wonderful thing.

But man, the kerning issues on that graphic are killing me.

Working on the Baseball Cardinals...meanwhile, here's a retrospective of their primary marks...

Primary Mark - 1927 through 1947:

Alternate Primary Mark - 1928 through 1939:

Second Alternate Primary Mark - circa 1930s through 1940s:

Primary Mark - 1949 through 1965:

Primary Mark - 1966 through 1997:

SaintLouisCardinals_PMK0100a_1966-1997_S

Primary Mark - 1998:

SaintLouisCardinals_PMK0100a_1998_SCC_SR

Primary Mark - 1999 through present:

SaintLouisCardinals_PMK0100a_1999-9999_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.

Do you have all those logos in that book? Cause the jersey logos for the Cardinals on the main site has many holes. I took pics of all of these at the Cardinals HOF and Museum, but they are obviously through glass and on an angle.

I do, actually.

I know! I'll look into it...

For what it's worth - look at this:

Looks like (from this image and others I'm seeing doing a Google search), that the actual wordmark was a bit wonky.

Here is that Hawks logo I was talking about. I guess just like anything else they could have different versions for certain things.

I guess it's kerning...but I had never noticed the s's in the wordmark are different shapes. The bottom base is longer and a little thicker on the last s than the other one.

I just pulled out an 1986 Style Guide sheet for the Astros...looks crappy there too. The graphic I posted is spot on...

Ah, the days of hand-drawn wordmarks...

Oh, I'm not blaming you in the least.

Odd, though, since you mention it - easier to fix kerning on hand-drawn logos.

I wasn't thinking you were!

I agree on the kerning...if anything, the official guide has the first 's' practically attached to then 'A'.

Here's a crappy iPhone pic of the wordmark from the 1986 sheet:

Two minor things I've noticed in general.
University of Central Florida was know as the Golden Knights from 1993 to 2007 and the Knights from 1970 to 1993 and 2007 to the present day: http://www.ucfknights.com/genrel/050407abn.html
And also the new USL Pro teams, Portland Timbers 2 and Seattle Sounders FC 2 (may god help us all) haven't been put up yet. Is there a buffer period between release and posting I'm not aware of? Is it a matter of waiting until Real Monarchs is released?

Nice! Thanks for posting these primaries and alternates; can't wait to see the jersey logos!

The 2012 Fight Hunger Bowl had a slightly different logo to the 2010 and 2011 events: namely the sponsor Kraft introduced their new logo to it.

This media guide features the 2012 logo: http://grfx.cstv.com/photos/schools/embl/sports/m-footbl/auto_pdf/2012-13/misc_non_event/12-media-guide.pdf
