The Top 10 Best Sports Logos

Some sports teams have had logos that have lasted for what seems like an eternity; whether for more than half a century full of glory or a few struggling decades. But no matter what criticisms or financial issues a team has faced, the logo still stands on strong.

The following are 10 great logos that have solidified teams and major league sports.

 

Best Sports Logo #10. Falling Into History

Since their team’s roster is being built from the ground up, Toronto Maple Leafs fans can rejoice as their logo is actually one of the best out there. Once known as the Arenas and the St. Patrick’s, Toronto’s hockey team became known as the Maple Leafs after they were bought by a group of individuals 1927. Since then, the organization has gone through different variations of the logo, but has kept the original blue and white colours and leaf design.

 

Best Sports Logo #9. Unpacking Dominance

Despite the fact that the Green Bay Packers have used many other logos, the “G” logo was the only one to ever appear on the team’s helmet. The oval design was created by the team’s equipment manager George Braisher in 1961. Since then, its had a lasting impression on sports, influencing the University of Georgia and Grambling State University to create similar logos.

 

Best Sports Logo #8. All You Need Is One

The New York Mets logo may look simple, but there’s more than meets the eye. Created by sports cartoonist Ray Gatto, the only logo the organization has ever seen was first used in 1962. A unique fact is that each part of the skyline in the design has a special meaning. The featured buildings in the logo include a church spire (symbolic of Brooklyn), the Williamsburg Savings Bank, the Woolworth Building, the Empire State Building and the United Nations Building. The bridge symbolizes that the Mets represent the five boroughs of New York.

 

Best Sports Logo #7. Nothing Fishy About This Design

Except for a few changes over the years, the Miami Dolphins ’ logo has remained the same. The design consists of a dolphin wearing a helmet with the sun shining behind it. Dolphins are often considered gentle animals but as history has proved, the team is nothing but competitive.

Best

I would have to go with the Chicago Blackhawks logo as the best. Although, what really makes the hawks logo look so great is when it is on the home RED uniform. That shade of red is unique to the hawks

Montreal

24 Stanley Cups in a 100 years of existence...

I just can't believe the Montreal Canadiens logo is not the number one hockey logo in your list.

And perhaps the Dallas Cowboys Star should have been there... Instead maybe of the Chicago Bulls which to me is there because of Michael Jordan nothing else...
