I saw this site on another thread (http://www.sportslogos.net (http://www.sportslogos.net/)), and looking through some of the old logos, they're quite a mixed bag. I thought I'd pick my three best/worst, and see what you guys think.

Best

That Jays logo is really lame (until I saw it I never believed there could be such a thing as a D-Rays ripoff!!! :rolling: ). They never should have gotten rid of this cool logo:

At least to me that Padres logo looks more appropriate for something like Sea World or the Shedd Aquarium. I really don't think it's necessarily a bad logo in and of itself... I just think it's not a good MLB team logo.

I don't find the Padres logo totally objectionable. It wouldn't be my first choice for sure, though. Isn't it supposed to suggest a beach with its color scheme? I don't know if that really works.

Worse than the currrent Padres?
Are you kidding? I dont think the Padres logo is bad at all. It isnt great, but it is certainly is not not horrible like the Blue Jays logo.
The Padres logo looks sharp, it looks like a baseball logo (shape of homeplate). You may not think the colors are the best, but they are taken from the beach, and are appropriate for the city. I also like the font. It is original, but simple.

The Blue Jays logo, however, is horrible in every possible way. The logo not only spits on team history, but distances itself from Canada. The Jays went into 2004 knowing they would soon be Canada's only team, so they decided to REMOVE the maple leaf from the logo?:?: If anything, they should have added more red. Toronto teams (except for the attrocious Raptors), have always worn blue - Blue Jays, Maple Leafs, Allouettes. The Blue Jays colors had always been, and should always be blue and red. They are the BLUE Jays. For them to use black as their primary color is ridiculous.
The Blue Jays are an example of a horrible design team thinktank in some fancy office in California with no knowledge of the city of Toronto, the nation of Canada, or team history. They sat down with info from public surveys, and tried to create "the perfect logo". "The public likes the color black", "the public likes dark jerseys", "black and silver sells", "people like bold, futuristic logos that depict angry animals". They could have changed the name, drew up another crappy animal, and sold this logo to any number of teams. It is horribly generic. Nothing about it says Toronto Blue Jays, or even baseball in general. It doesn't even have their entire name in it! The design team was more focused on creating a "cool, futuristic" logo that countless trendy clowns across the country would buy that the overlooked what the fans of that team wanted.

However, the Padres logo is so blah, and what does the beach and sand have to do with a " Padre"? The font is weak and the uniforms that go with it suck, even by Padre standards.

I know that this will sound like heresy to almost everyone on this board, but the White Sox logo from the 1980s- which seems to be universally adored by most Sox fans- is, in my opinion, just horrendous. Red, white and blue are just not Sox colors to me. Thebatting baseball player gives no identity whatsoever to the team, city or those viewing the logo. It has no sense of style or history to me. Sad to say, I cringe every time I see that logo and am just amazed that it is still popular on caps, jackets and tees today. Funny thing is I just received my new order of Sox address labels the other day and that logo is one of the 4 used in the set. That sheet will forever remain in the drawer. I hated that logo back in the day and still cannot stomach it now. I know I am in the vast minority on this one, but just wanted to get that off my chest. Let the hate mail begin:smile:

http://www.sportslogos.net/images/Baseball/MLB/CWS_752.gifThey list this one being used from 1971-'75. But I've got some old Sox yearbooks from the early 60's where the "batter logo" inside the red circle was used.

I remember when Bill Veeck bought the ballclub prior to the '76 season he introduced a more "modern" version of the batter logo.

I agree with you, at least partially. The '70s-'80s Sox logo was designed by Mary Frances Veeck when Bill Veeck bought the club in 1976. It replaced white sock in the red circle (see the stirrups of the '71-'75 uniforms) which wasn't nearly as good as the winged sock from the Go-Go era.

I much prefer the current old English script logo taken from the '50s that if not designed was at least approved by Chuck Comiskey.

http://www.seatseek.com/images/san_francisco_giants_logo175.jpg Simple and classic. I like black and orange, it's very tough. And I've always kinda liked the Giants, mainly for whipping the snot out of the cubs in '89.

The worst: Every Pirates logo but the 1960-1986 one. They make Pirates look like the stereotypical homeless wino that hangs outside the park looking for change. The battling Red Sock is silly as well. Rates right up there with the Gorton's fisherman the Islanders used.

Best: Mariners' trident shooting out of the star, Pirates logo from 1960-86, Expos' "M".

Of course I left the White Sox out of the running. My mom had a hand in creating the red, white & blue pajama look in the '80s when they had that contest to design the new unis.

Yup. It's an optical illusion because of the different colors and the curls on both sides, but it is in fact an 'M'.

Edit: From Wikpedia:

"Logo design: Stylized M (for Montreal), in which can be seen a lowercase red 'e' (for Expos) and a lowercase blue 'b' (for baseball).

Finally, an answer to the mystery! When I was a kid, I called them "The Montreal Elbows" as a joke, since the logo made zero sense to me. Now it's like one of those "Magic Eye" pictures: once you've seen it, you wonder how you didn't recognize it from the beginning!

I love the site these came from. If I didn't have to go to work, I could be laughing at it for hours. I'm sure every logo seemed like a good idea at the time. To someone.

Questions abound about what these teams were thinking. For example, when I was in high school and the A's were winning three straight World Series, I thought the elephant patch on their shoulders was strange. I thought the A's might be flaunting the fact that they were crushing other teams with the weight of their success. Now I am wondering why the Athletics had elephants in their logos in Kansas City and Philadelphia.

The little NY is all I see that is different. Anything else? Do you know why they removed the NY?

The little building on the right is kinda thicker as well. Doesn't resemble a needle anymore.

BTW, when the retro uniform craze started a few years ago, the Expos had a red stylized "M" on their hats, much like the Brewers now sport on their own caps. I think they wore them a couple of times, then scrapped the idea, electing to stick with the ingenious "M/elb" logo they've had for ages. (I'm one of those who only saw the "elb" until it was finally pointed out it was an "M", now that's all I see.)

I have a book on pro sports logos and how they came into being. I think it was printed in 1988 or 89, because it included the four NBA expansion teams. Very interesting read if you're interested in that sort of thing. Goes into details on why they chose that specific name, other names that were considered (I remember when they had a contest for the Marlins name, a lot of people chose "Humidity", because of the old phrase "It's not the Heat that's bad, it's the Humidity."), how the logo art was created, even what fans won with the winning logo or name. (The guy who created the Brewers baseball glove won season tickets.) If you're in a used/second-hand book store, you might be able to find it.

I know that this will sound like heresy to almost everyone on this board, but the White Sox logo from the 1980s- which seems to be universally adored by most Sox fans- is, in my opinion, just horrendous. Red, white and blue are just not Sox colors to me. Thebatting baseball player gives no identity whatsoever to the team, city or those viewing the logo. It has no sense of style or history to me. Sad to say, I cringe every time I see that logo and am just amazed that it is still popular on caps, jackets and tees today. Funny thing is I just received my new order of Sox address labels the other day and that logo is one of the 4 used in the set. That sheet will forever remain in the drawer. I hated that logo back in the day and still cannot stomach it now. I know I am in the vast minority on this one, but just wanted to get that off my chest. Let the hate mail begin:smile:

also, the brewers logo, while not very attractive to me, is the cleverest logo in my opinion incorporating the M and B for the team name and a baseball and glove in one simple picture.

Look VERY CAREFULLY!

LOL, yeah, the "Ny" was removed because the Mets felt it was overkill, I once read.

I love the Mets logo. For anyone who cares, here's a little history behind it:

"The circular Mets logo, designed by sports cartoonist Ray Gatto and unveiled on November 16, 1961, has gone virtually unchanged throughout the history of the club. The shape of the insignia, with its orange stitching, represents a baseball, and the bridge in the foreground symbolizes that the Mets, in bringing back the National League to New York, represent all five boroughs.

It's not just a skyline in the background, but has special meaning. At the left is a church spire, symbolic of Brooklyn, the borough of churches. The second building from the left is the Williamsburg Savings Bank, the tallest building in Brooklyn. Next is the Woolworth Building. After a general skyline view of midtown comes the Empire State Building. At the far right is the United Nations Building."

It really has a "New York" flavor to it, unlike the Yankees one. All the details and special Ny meanings make it stand out to me...

This logo, by the way, was created by then Islanders GM Don Maloney...

Even though I hated the '92/'93 Blue Jays since the Sox didn't have much success against them, this was really a classic logo. Actually it still looks good today, even though it's from the 70's. The Blue Jays should go back to this logo and uniform scheme.

I don't care for the non-descript/generic logos like the current Twins, Brewers, Padres logos. Very lame. The old Mariners' "M's" logo from the 80s/early 90s falls into this category and is probably the worst of the bunch.

Another logo that fits this description is the Cubs logo. People like to fawn over it because it's the Cubs and because they've had it forever. But it's still just another lame, generic logo.

I don't know, it's a bit intricate to be a good logo, but I like it. When I was growing up my curtains had this on them. I like it.


Yeah, isn't that the kind of drawing that gives kids nightmares about him moving that logo? When I was growing up the Senators logo was on my mlb curtains. I like it a lot.

LOL!! Ahh yes, the infamous "Gorton's Fisherman" jersey!! LOL, being a Ny Rangers hockey fan, we used to have a field day mocking this uniform. Steve Sommers (Ny sports radio overnight host/Ranger fan) was merciless on Islander fans on WFAN. Those were the days. Islander fans HATED it and practically forced ownership to switch it back...

This logo, by the way, was created by then Islanders GM Don Maloney...

Don Maloney...the former Ny Ranger...

LOL!! We always used to joke that he sabotaged their uniform intentionally. Maloney is now back with the Rangers organization (where he belong).

When the Islanders were playing the Rangers, the Ranger fans started a "We want fishsticks!" chant.

I don't understand why the Chief makes so many of the bad lists - I always liked that logo.


This is easily the worst
http://www.sportslogos.net/Site/images/teams/primaries/1291.gif
It's just sooooo lame. It has absolutely no connection to the name of the team - just a home plate shape to remind you it's a baseball team and some lame waves to represent California. It has "focus group" written ALL over it.

Here's my best:

http://www.sportslogos.net/Site/images/teams/primaries/767.gif (http://www.sportslogos.net/Site/logo.php?lo=767) They should have this logo on their home jerseys for good! It was awesome in '01!
http://baseball-almanac.com/teams/logos/redlegs.jpgYes, some small children may be frightened of ol' Mr. Red but the Reds need to bring this version of Mr. Red back for good and not just have him on scoreboard races

http://www.sportslogos.net/Site/images/teams/primaries/2894.gif (http://www.sportslogos.net/Site/logo.php?lo=2894) Awesome A's logo from their glory days

The worst:

http://www.sportslogos.net/Site/images/teams/primaries/1339.gif (http://www.sportslogos.net/Site/logo.php?lo=1339) What the heck is this???

http://www.sportslogos.net/Site/images/teams/primaries/720.gif (http://www.sportslogos.net/Site/logo.php?lo=720) Could this be any more offensive?

http://www.sportslogos.net/Site/images/teams/primaries/2920.gif (http://www.sportslogos.net/Site/logo.php?lo=2920)The only Cubs logo that's worse than the one they have now

http://www.sportslogos.net/Site/images/teams/primaries/1276.gif (http://www.sportslogos.net/Site/logo.php?lo=1276) Do I need to explain? This just looks...off.

http://www.sportslogos.net/Site/images/teams/primaries/2277.gif (http://www.sportslogos.net/Site/logo.php?lo=2277) Looks like a logo you would see on a cheap sci-fi video in a dollar store

I couldn't get the image link to work. But the St. Louis Browns logo with the horseman looks vaguely like a Klansman.

It's supposed to be a kinght. Sint Luois is named after Louis IX of France, who wwas on one of the Crusades.
