For New England sports fans, that great time of the year is approaching where Red Sox’s late-season Major League Baseball action overlaps with the excitement that comes with the beginning of the Patriots’ season in the NFL. So I thought this might be as good a time as any to look back at how the logos that have represented these teams and other pro sports teams have evolved through the years.
Perhaps no website does this better than any other I’ve encountered than LogoServer.com. The site, maintained by Baseball Almanac, provides a wonderful collection of sports logos. As the site states, “The mission of LogoServer is to preserve the rich artistic history of logos.” This commitment is apparent, as well as its creators’ respect for the time, tradition, and talent these logos represent.
For my fellow New England sports fans, don’t miss the great series depicting the evolution of the Red Sox logo, or even the Boston Americans, as the team was called from 1901 to 1907. The site also provides a nice collection of the Patriots logo through the ages, from the ‘three-point patriot’ to the ‘flying Elvis’.
