Now that the championship flags have been replace by the banners, the flagpoles at the Cell are displaying logos from White Sox past. Pretty cool.

Interestingly, they devoted two flags to the logos from those pivitol Sox years of 1987-1990. One flag for the "campbell soup" C logo and one for the non-descript "White Sox" script logo. They had a flag with the cap logo from '59-era (diagonal block letters S-O-X) and a flag for the 70s-80s main logo. Nice to see that these long-retired Sox logos still live on at the ballpark.

I don't think I saw a flag with the classic 1917 Sox logo though. Unless I missed it, that's a curious oversight considering 1987 gets 2 flags.

Yep they did look awsome. You could feel the history looking at them,If they were for sale I'd buy all of them.

I got some good pics (I think) of them when I was there Tuesday....I'll post them later after I pic up the pics/picture discs.

These were the first things I noticed when I got to the ballpark on Sunday...I thought they were great.

Same here. Once I checked out the banners yesterday, the flags were way obvious. Very cool.

I think they look nice. I noticed there were some logo's missing too. I wonder if those will eventually be over the fundamentals area.

I don't think there's enough flag pole space for the Sox to put up all the goofy ass logos they've had over the years.

Those flags are pretty and neat. At the game Tuesday, I was trying to figure out a way to climb up there and get them. Needless to say, I gave up on that idea after approximately one second.

I wonder if there's any plans to rotate in and out different logos. That would be pretty cool.

If Cub tools are going to vandalize anything this year, I hope they go after the Einhorn e White Sox logo flag. :redneck

I could do without the 1983 logo (the one XRT uses for SOX shirts).

The logo I'd love to see is of course:

Well, keep in mind some of the logos are also on the green seats. Maybe that's why some were conspicuous by their absense.

That early-80s era flag looks sharp.

I noticed that too. They're missing the 1906 and 1917 logos, though they are on the WS banner for those years. I thought it was odd they had two flags for both the early 80's and late 80's logos and missed some of the early 19 century logos completely. I guess I'm just a perfectionist when I comes to trivial stuff like that.
Also, the red/white/navy blue early 80's flag that says SOX is sweet. I'd love to find a smaller version of it for my office.

Like I said, they already have the Campbell Soup "C" logo from the late 80s on one of the flagpoles.:tongue:

Unless I'm just crazy, I'm pretty sure there is a flag with that.

The one thing that sort of got me is about the banners - the little pennants on the AL and Division champion banners all have current Sox logos - shouldn't they have the logos that those teams used?

Or the Einhorn E flag right?

Pink = Pipedream (though the way the broadcasts are turning out, I can see the pink changing to Bold with dancing nanas come early November).

Yep, same lame logo. It actually looks weird by itself on a flag - just some ugly generic squiggle.

All the other past Sox logos look pretty cool on flags - they are uniquely and unmistakeably White Sox.
