Hill Valley Baseball Jersey Design
And my first-ever Back To The Future design for this blog is a baseball one! And why not, baseball feels more old-timey than hockey in my opinion.
Initially I wanted to do a caricature of Principal Strickland, but I opted to enlist Elmer Fudd, and he looks great as a sports mascot. Also the Looney Tunes character is very anachronistic to the 50’s, and I’d like to think the students at Hill Valley would use Elmer in the same rebellious fashion.
As for the lack of pinstripes, sorry but those look better on white jerseys. Also my readership has an aversion to white jerseys, so the above design reflects what I hope people would want to wear*. Also I decided to use a Yankees-style logo instead a baseball script logo (seen above) for a change of pace. The logo can be interpreted as an H and a V, or H-V-H, or 2 H’s (not sure why you’d want 2 H’s!).
*Hopefully Geeky Jerseys will have some news on baseball jerseys soon. And when that happens I’ll probably revisit this and other baseball jersey designs.
