75 old sports logos that teams should bring back

Remember any of these gems?



Time marches on, as do logos for professional sports teams. Today’s trend usually turns into tomorrow’s afterthought. That doesn’t mean we think some spectacular old logos shouldn’t get another run as their team’s primary symbol. Here’s a look at a big crop we’d like to see revived for a second life. (Thanks to Chris Creamer’s excellent for always serving as a great repository for these works of art.)
