Classic Insignia

The playoffs are down to four teams.  The most intriguing part for me -- aside from the fact that my lifelong team, the Giants, are still alive -- is the historic nature of the LCS.  All four teams have been part of professional baseball for over a century (the Giants having been in New York City until 1958) and still use a classic insignia on their uniforms.  The Yankees, of course, are the most successful franchise in nearly any sport, and their NY is recognized on hats around the world.  Detroit may have the most unique initial, the high-English D, of any major league team.  The Cardinal uniform is a classic, particularly the version with the cardinal balancing on a bat.

It would be nice to see at least one game in each series be played with retro uniforms.  The flannel would be warmer this time of year!

Go Giants.
