    Default Killing the cursed logo....




    Okay, I realize that I'm probably being stupid but when it comes to baseball I am superstitious.

    For as long as the Tiger through the D logo was the official logo the Tigers had losing seasons.

    As soon as they changed back to the D as the official logo they went to the World Series.

    However, the Tiger through the D continues to be an alternate logo and they cannot get over the hump.

    I am getting rid of everything with that old logo. I have fan plates on the front of my vehicles that are being replaced. I am going to burn my old 1994 Tiger through the D hat that hasn't seen the light of day since it was new.

    That logo and it's losing ways must be destroyed.

    I have a couple of license plates, a license plate frame, and an orange billed hat. I'll give them to you. Free. I'll even pay shipping.

    Why not just the D as the logo? The Yankees for instance do not have Uncle Sam in their logo. The simpler logos have a more lasting effect...

    I have always hated that Tiger through the D logo. I thought the Tigers abandoned that entirely, but is that not true?

    It's officially an alternate logo. I think that's its proper place. I thought it was creative, but I'm glad that the D without the Tiger has returned to the name/number t shirts and the little league uniforms.

    Biff, I'd have to AT LEAST pay shipping. But I'm all in - I've been looking for one of those hats! And I'd put the license plates to use, too. Can I PM you about this?

    I'm gonna have to go ahead and agree with Biff on this. The logo was too childish in my opinion. And you can't argue with the fact that that thing was cursed! I loved the JohnJMS brought up and I think that should be used as the alternate once again.

    I'll have to make sure I still have the hat but you're more than welcome to the plates and the hat (if I have it). One plate is kind of beat up from the car wash.

    Never liked that logo. Sadly, it was the only logo that was available when I recently ordered checks.

    Last year, when the Tigers were inside Ford Field for a promotional event, Inge casually kicked a 50-yard field goal in front of the team.

    and then the Lions told him they were using Jason Hanson instead and he whined to reports and newspapers until fans couldn't take anymore
    Put me on record. Prince Fielder will still OPS 850+ in years 7-8-9 of this contract. (sucks that my signature has to stay this for 7 years now)

    Biff, I agree with you. The Tiger through the D needs to be completely banished. Just stick with the old english D. I prefer the hat version as opposed to the uniform but that's another debate.

    What we really need is to bring back the animated Tiger after each broadcast....
    It's not that I'm lazy. It's just that I don't care.

    Current logo



    "New" Alternative logo




    If was the logo when the tigers won their first championship in 1935, and again in 1945.

    I thought I had read a few years back that the crappy logo had been officially discontinued by the tigers. But if that were the case, the networks wouldn't have the logo to use, because I imagine those graphics and logos are provided to the networks and licensed by mlb.

    They really new to drop it. I don't see old devil rays or angels logos appearing anywhere.

    I almost feel as though that terrible logo is being used to insult us.

    It must have some official status since MLB Network still uses it on occasion.

    I think it's meant to be used on the more cheaper Tiger merchandise.

    Maybe it's a licensing thing where they can't get rid of it yet due to some contracts in place. For my birthday I got a nice fake stone thing to put on a desk with the nice "Tigers" script and a gnome on top of it... then next to it is that God Awful logo. I even mentioned to my wife previously that I didn't like the logo and wanted noTIger stuff with it. It could be a personalized autograph from Verlander, Cabrera, and Al Kaline but if that logo is there, forget it.

    I have a "throwback" shirt from Birmingham Collection (or something like that?) on the east side that just has three buttons on top at the collar and the tiger through the D logo on the left chest.
