Wow, what a first post! Great linework and execution.

I'm wondering if you'd found some inspiration in the Las Vegas 51's, one of my all-time favourite brands.

I don't know if the map of New York is necessary. I thought it was a ribbon at first. Also, the team isn't really representing the whole state of New York, I would think. Maybe give the spectre a high collar or something?

The text on "Spectres" gets a little hard to read, especially since that "r" is so squeezed in there, it's easy to miss. Also, the multiple outlines around the numbers make them hard to read.

This is almost there. Good job!

GREAT start. I agree that the text is a little difficult to read. But I think with less outlines of a larger image it would be easier to read. The main problem I have is throwing the state of New York in the background. I'm not sure if it really fits. It doesn't look too bad when you just have the head or "S" in front of it, but when you put the skull and text together, you end up with that big white space between the head and wordmark. Something definitely needs to be done to eliminate that. Maybe pull the head down some? But when you put this logo together, the shape of New York in the background is completely lost.

Yea it was working really hard with the script. I wanted something a little scary and flowing and kind of whimsical but it just didnt turn out exactly how i wanted it. and now that i think about it the state outline doesn't really make sense. Thanks for the feedback tho everyone.

I like the saturated color because it gives it a touch of uniqueness. Bright blue would blend in poorly with that shade of red of it weren't a bit saturated.

Also, keep the state outline. It gives it a sense of locality and makes it seem as if it was made for the region. Without it, it's just another logo that could be used for anywhere. The team doesn't need to be named "New York" to have a state outline.
