Sports fans love sports logos because they get emblazoned on clothing and paraphernalia, allowing people to wear them and show their allegiance! A great logo can really help build up a fan base, especially if it were a change from a bad sports team logo.
Many times, an owner or a general manager will choose to change the team’s logos for a couple reasons – either to change the team’s losing fortunes, or to hope for a revival of sports merchandising revenue. But oft times, those logo changes end up being horrible ideas, and fans are forced to root for teams with bad logos.
We found a baker’s dozen of old sports logos that we think are just obscure enough that they’ll be tough for you to figure out in our sports logo quiz!
Can You Name the Teams For These 13 Old Sports Logos?
These old sports logos weren’t necessarily ones on the helmets, jerseys or hats of all their teams, but they did represent their teams at different points of their franchise history. These logos are only from the MLB, NBA and NFL. We also only mention the team nicknames and not the city because in many cases, the teams moved from different cities and we didn’t want to tip you off! Also, some of these teams may have been from the AFL or ABA before mergers.
