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

Recommended Posts

I'm digging this Mariners concept. But I would love that they also go back to the '79-era (or roughly there) numeral font. I'd have to look for it, but it's not block. It's not even 1984 Padres-like but a lot closer to that; It's much more rounded, and matches some of the work you've compiled.

I like how it is unique (although I think it is a bit too wide, click here for a picture of an actual jersey), and I like how it incorporates another era. So here are the uniforms with the 1977-80 numbers.

The jersey templates just aren't wide enough. The numerals are OK, but can be thinned out a bit. Maybe.

Can't believe you're nearly 2/3 of the way through the entire league. It's been a joy to follow this series.

5th one for sure.

It incorporates the star signifying badge of a ranger and it still shows the laces shining piercing through

I am still here. I was on vacation with my family this past weekend, and there wasn't any internet available there. But I'm back and have the Rangers done.

I decided to go with a version of the last logo I posted. I think it does a good job of incorporating different eras. I do like their current font (especially now that they have ditched the drop shadows) so I kept them.

The Rangers have tended to wear numbers on the front of jerseys that have a Rangers script, but have never had numbers on front of jerseys that have a Texas script.

I never noticed that their current hat logo's top arms of the T aren't equal weights. (But now I can't unsee it.) That might be because of the drop-shadow, but since I got rid of the drop-shadow, so I equaled up the arms of the T.

I hate how they wear red hats/socks with their regular home uniforms, so I wanted to give them a red version of a white jersey. I originally did one in which I switched the blue and the red on the primary home jersey, but decided to go with an updated version of these alternates.

Nice job on the Rangers here! Really no complaints from me.

Although I did notice that you left out the Texas flag logo on this set.

Perfecto!

Couple of interesting teams next: Chicago and Cleveland!

I really like what you've done with the Rangers (esp. the primary and the red text white uniform). Great job, and I can't wait to see what you'll do with the White Sox (I'd like if there was a set with white socks)!

Very nicely done Rangers set. My only nitpick is the lack of the Texas flag, but it's not a necessity.

What a perfect set for the Rangers and everything else you have done thus far has been great. Keep it up man!

The White Sox are by FAR the team I am most interested to see, but you probably knew that already!

As for the symbolic meaning of the upside-down trident, I believe a "white elephant" symbolizes something that is an expensive, unprofitable burden, but no one seems to be bothered by that being the A's logo.

That's because they proved their detractors wrong and ironically embraced it. I wouldn't recommend it for the Mariners as long as they're going to keep being no damn good.

Love this series! Looking forward to seeing my KC Royals. Just hoping for my Royals you don't use black from their early '00s days or change the colors to something like purple and gold. But it would be cool if you incorporate parts of the Kansas City Monarchs from the Negro Leagues into it. :)

Definitely nailed the main Rangers and Texas word marks and hat logo. That is what I think they should be wearing now. No double outline (or spaced outline) and no drop shadow on the hat. Well done.

I feel like the Rangers logo has alot of stuff going on, but it works well. Good job hinting on all of the eras
