The Top 10 Best Sports Logos

Best Sports Logo #3. Being Different Isn't So Bad

It might have to do with their logo, but the Los Angeles Lakers are the only team that doesn’t use home uniforms that are primarily white (instead, they’re yellow). Before moving to Los Angeles, the Lakers were based in Minneapolis. There, the team colours were blue, light blue and white. But after moving to the famous city, the team switched its colours to purple and gold in the late 1960s.

 

Best Sports Logo #2. The Reign Of A Sophisticated Team

As classy as George Steinbrenner’s team rules (players weren’t allowed to grow long hair or have facial hair below the lip), theNew York Yankees logo is one of the most popular ones around. Despite using the “NY” version on hats and other gear, the primary team logo has been around since 1936.

 

Best Sports Logo #1. A Simple Design That Established A Team

Despite its prestige logo, the Detroit Red Wings were known as under other names, such as the Cougars and the Falcons. But in 1932, a millionaire named Jim Morris bought the team and decided to name it after another organization. Norris decided that the “winged logo” was perfect for Detroit as they are the Motor City.

The organization the turned around as the Detroit Red Wings made the playoffs for the first time a few years later and won the Stanley Cup in 1936.

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...
