Old MLB logos Reddit
Source. Some retired MLB logos.

Look, I haven't followed baseball since the strike and I hate all those sites that steal content from the Jalponiks and Reddits of the world. But here is some baseball content stolen from Reddit cause, like, it was funny and I learned cool A's facts.

Also, funny comments deserve recognition, looking at you /u/Ted_Dongelman. I just wish the /r/baseball crowd had set up their avatars so the quotes below didn't look so lifeless. (I re-scrape every time I generate the page, so maybe in the future they will populate).

Chicago Cubs logos 1934 1942 1950

old cubs logos

No Cubs logo designer had actually seen a bear until 1994. Love the nips on #1.

Sure, they aren't the most bearlike bears, but they strangely seem to capture the national zeitgeist:

Washington Football Team logos Griffins Renegades Redtails

I'm not going to post the cropped Braves logo, it's plenty visible at the top of this post. Instead, here's the NFL version.

The braves one looks like it came out of a racism competition
You're the worst pirate I've ever heard of

Pittsburgh Pirates airquotes logo Dr Evil

Before italics and boldface were a thing, people used quotation marks for emphasis. Or something, all I know is that it's hilarious that they put quotes around "The Pirates".

"The Pirates"

Just missing the apostrophe - "The Pirate's".

... and then blame autocorrect.

Oakland Athletics elephant 90s logo deal with it sunglasses

Near and dear to my 12-year old heart.

The only problem with the A's logo is itís unreasonably cool

That elephant picks up his date in his Trans Am and honks instead of walking up to the door to greet her.

That Oakland one is cool is hell. It also looks like the Phillies bird (why?) is scolding the Cub for being upset at the Pirates using quotes in their name.

We want an elephant with attitude. He's edgy, he's in your face. You've heard the expression "let's get busy?" This is an elephant who gets biz-zay, consistently and thoroughly.

Wikipedia hole

The A's played in Shibe Park (later named Connie Mack Stadium). Shibe, first name escapes me, wanna say Ben, was an early owner of the A's.

Shibe owned an elephant.

His elephant became the team mascot.

The Philadelphia A's are the coolest team in sports. Bets team in baseball from 1910 to 1930. 6 World Series titles in 20 years. Old heads in Philly (ex. My grandparents) are still fans of the A's.
