Every year Major League Baseball releases their logo for the World Series and postseason and it’s usually picked apart by fans who think the league could have done better.
It’s likely many will share a similar sentiment this season, though, likely for a different reason.
In the past both logo’s have often been too cluttered and the color choices have been unique to say the least. But for the 2014 World Series and the postseason, Major League Baseball has clearly went for the most basic of looks.
Those images are off a postseason ticket order form released by the Oakland A’s, though, the graphics are rather small.
SportsLogos.net got their mitts on the higher resolution photos as seen below.
Needless to say, they’re rather basic and extremely subdued from what we’ve seen in the past (for example, last year where there were two red and blue flags flying over the script). However, that’s not necessarily a bad thing as they give a rather clean and polished look as opposed to some we’ve seen in the past. These actually look like they’ll match up and pair well with playoff and World Series merchandise, which will be a nice change.
Keep in mind, these are not necessarily the logo’s you’ll see placed on championship apparel when a team clinches a playoff birth or advances a round in the playoffs but rather graphics that will be used on official MLB documents and MLB logo merchandise.
