The 1901-2 one is even more questionable. As I've heard it, it was a registered logo, but nobody can confirm that the logo was ever actually displayed on jerseys or anywhere else. The guy at Detroit Athletic Co. is offering a prize for any proof the tigers ever donned that logo anywhere, and as of yet, I don't think he's had a winner (just a few fraud photos).
It is hard to imagine that one actually being used, Vaudiophile, now that you bring it up, even in 1901. Maybe it was a school project by the owners 3 year old?
Hey, wait a minute:http://www.detroitathletic.com/servlet/the-37/1901-Detroit-Tigers-Ballcap/Detail
Geewhy,Vaudiophile is a friend of mine and he owns that hat. I think it looks pretty cool. I love how the 27-28 one looks crosseyed. That is how I imagine Brandon Inge when he is batting.
Yeah, I have to admit the logo looks kind of cool when you see it on the actual hat.Ah, Inge.
Although it does look more like a house cat than a tiger.
lol, that is exactly what his girlfriend compared it to on Friday.
For a trip down memory lane and some fun, check out http://www.sportslogos.net/. The site has grown quite a bit over the past couple of years and covers logos from many teams in several major sports.
Randy, at least they improved over time!
Sorry about a recent comment. It slipped by me. It has been removed. Thanks.
Thanks for commenting.
