Top 5 Major-League Sports Logos

brewers

1. Milwaukee Brewers – An ‘M’ and a ‘b’ formed to look like a baseball glove catching a ball. Best logo design ever.

whalers

2. Hartford Whalers – Then Green ‘W’ and Blue tail fin of a Whale form the white ‘H’ in the middle. Again, fantastic design. Also, immortalized in one of the greatest lines in film.  “Breakfast, shmreakfast. Look at the score, for Christ’s sake. It’s only the second period and I’m up 12 to 2. Breakfasts come and go, Rene, but Hartford, “the Whale,” they only beat Vancouver once, maybe twice in a lifetime”

expos

3. Montreal Expos – An eMb make up this logo, which stands for Expos de Montréal Baseball.

red-wings

4. Detroit Red Wings – The Motor City is well represented by the automobile tire with wings.

steelers1

5. Pittsburgh Steelers – I may be partial to this for many reasons, however, using the ‘Steel’ logo and color scheme as the base of this design represents the Steel City and its team.

  2. Anaheim ducks-an old school goalie mask shaped like a duck

  3. nope. i will not include a team that was formed because of a Disney movie.

  4. How about the sailing compass of the Seattle mariners? Or the celtics angry leprochaun?

  5. those are all good ones…I just think its funny that #s 2 and 3 don’t even exist as teams anymore, and I think #1 mostly uses other logos now.

    there are a million really really good ones that can be found here http://www.logoserver.com/

  6. Fact: The best logo ever was used by the St. Louis Browns from 1952-53.

    Go Slugs!

  7. Love the St Louis Browns logo as well. Had a Cooperstown Collection hat of theirs. The Brown and Orange on an off-white hat was pure class.

    But being from Wisconsin, I remember when I was young and shuffling through my baseball cards…and right then I had the epiphany that the Crew’s logo was in fact an M a B and a Baseball. Wonderful logo that has rightly found the top of your list.

  8. 100% correct on number 1. ….actually just got that tattooed on my arm.

    lets go brewers
