You might have noticed: Fathead is releasing classic baseball logos, and they are awesome.
If you grew up watching baseball and collecting baseball cards in the 80s and 90s as I did, you’ve got to love these. Fathead doesn’t yet have the classic Detroit Tigers logo (my personal favorite), but there quite a few great ones already on the website:
They bring you back in time, don’t they? It makes me think of old posters, t-shirts, hats, and baseball cards. It reminds me how much I loved baseball growing up.
In my opinion, the best of these ten logos is the White Sox’ and Brewers’. Just classic.
Which of these is your favorite? And which classic logo that isn’t already on the website would you like to see up for sale at Fathead.com (inside or outside of baseball)? Post your comments here, and also post them on Fathead’s image request page (http://www.fathead.com/fathead-request/). If there’s enough interest, Fathead could very well produce the one you want.

Dear Detroit Tigers,
After months and months of cold winter, spring has finally arrived, and, with it, the start of the baseball season. I’ve been earnestly waiting for this moment—following every offseason move, scouring last season’s stats, and planning my entire summer, including weddings, baptisms, and funerals, around your schedule. I don’t think I’ve ever been more excited to be alive, and I just thought you should know that.
I’m not sure how to properly say this without making you feel awkward, so I’m just going to be blunt: I think I’m in love with you. I think about you all the time. When you’re on the TV, I can’t take my eyes off of you; when you’re not on the TV, I wish you were. You complete me. You make me want to be a better man. I’m scared of walking out of this room and never feeling in my whole life the way I feel when I’m with you.
I know I haven’t always been perfect. There have been other teams—I’ll admit that. The Pistons, the Lions, the Red Wings. And these teams will always hold a special place in my heart. But I’m ready to dedicate myself to you, or at least I will be after the NBA and NHL playoffs are done.
And let’s face it, you haven’t been perfect either. Remember last season? Remember in March how you offered the promise of a great season and how you completely reneged? Have you forgotten how much love I showed you, and how you reciprocated with one of the most disappointing seasons in the history of baseball?
I haven’t forgotten. The final tally of 74-88 is burned into my brain and probably will be forever. But I’m willing to look past it. Let’s let bygones be bygones and focus on our relationship moving forward. I’ll focus on being a better fan for you, and you can focus on being a better team for me, and we can make this work. After all, love means never having to say you’re sorry.
Tonight, I’m moving my Tigers logo Fathead into the center of my rec room. I’m taking down all of the silly sports posters and concentrating my fan efforts on you. I’m ready to give you all I’ve got, and I hope you’re ready to do the same. Let’s forget about the 0-2 start and focus on us. We’re too right for each other to let this slip away.
P.S. We’ll always have ’84.
