MLB Combination of Eras - D-Backs in Purple and Red (March 25)

Recommended Posts

Use just the dark brown and darker light blue. Google Tufts university baseball if you wanna see how it would look.

My heart says 3A but for this project 1A's looking good. I'm curious as to what navy+yellow would look like

I did this little mockup a while ago of that color scheme. I really like the ocean-y feel to it. It's also the colors of the US Navy flag/seal, which would be a nice alternative to the camo if they want to do a military tribute.

If brown can't come back, this is a nice alternative.

It unifies them with that other San Diego team as well. You could add a hint of powder blue as well to further that idea. Only as an accent though; otherwise it would look a little too much like the Rays.

Well, the variance of opinions is about what I expected when I put up nine options. I hoped one or two options would clearly be favored. I think I have settled on what I will use, but I will wait to unveil it until I post the concept (oh, the suspense). The navy and yellow is a very good look (and adding light blue would be a good addition as well), but there are so many blue teams in the MLB that I am looking to go with brown.

Here is an update for the Dodgers. The only change is the script on the white and blue jerseys.

EDIT on 4/23: I updated the graph paper jersey with a blue placket. It now joins the 1913 jersey with the 1916 jersey.

Looking good.

However, the wordmarks still look off as placed on the jerseys. Either skew the letters such that the vertical strokes in them are paralell with the vertical axis of the jersey OR place the marks horizontal with no tilt.

Sorry for my ignorance, Giants1883, but I am not really understanding what you are saying here. What would the vertical axis of the jersey be? I made the script horizontally then tilted everything 7.5 degrees to match what the tilt the Bears did on their mid-80s jerseys.

Sorry for the confusing wording. Taking another stab at what i was getting at in steps:

1) Start with your sctipt horizontal

2) Italicize the letters by 7.5 degrees from vertical.

3) Place the script on the jersey at your 7.5 degrees from the horizontal

Ok, here is the next round of updates for the Rockies. I skewed the letters on the wordmarks per Giants1883's request (your new directions were very clear, by the way). I also tried the giant and extended mountain hat logo that Giants1883 and BTL suggested. I'm not sure how I feel about it; let me know what you think. I also edited the piping on the black jersey and added some tertiary logos.

How would the Dodgers' plaid alternate look with a blue placket?

Plaid never looked so good!

Wow, that placket looks fantastic. Really breaks up the plaid, and is a bit reminiscent of the Dodgers' 1933 uniform.

PERFECT on the Rockies wordmarks! The vertical stroke of the k and similar letters being not parallel with the button line and pinstripes was bugging me. Shrink the front numbers such that a two-digit number does not go past the end of the wordmark and you're done!

Now that I see the hats, one last tweak should do it:

1) All black cap should use the alternate logo, outlined in silver/grey and white

2) Purple bill:

_a. Widen the base of the mountain such that it spans the whole bill, not just the front panels.

_b. Add peaks on the sides as you see fit, semi-symmetrically

While I love the mountain cap idea, could you make one of the caps just have simply the C with the ball in it perhaps?

He went over why he did not create that a few posts back. It would resemble the Cubs cap too closely.

Your tweaked Rockies are just perfect. Cap is much better and the angling of the wordmark is just perfect. Well done!

These tweaks made both the Dodgers and Rockies many times better (especially the cleaned up Rockies caps and wordmarks). Well done!

I can see the plaid alternate working for the Dodgers with their checkered past. *laughs at own joke*
