One of my many RGB-optimized projects that I've come up with is to display college athletics marks by conference. Having grown-up in West Lafayette, Indiana - the son of a Purdue Economics professor - I wanted to start off with the Big Ten Conference.

(I'm a U. of North Texas grad myself, so you know I'll want to get to Conference USA soon as well.)

I'll just be displaying the primary athletic marks for the most part...for a lot of schools, I have secondary marks, wordmarks, etc., but I'll save those for individual school posts.

And yes - those are the most recent marks for Illinois, Ohio State and Purdue...all which have been modified in past year or two.

I have been - in the background anyway - working on a number of National Hockey League team sets, but haven't had the chance to post many of them. For now however, I've decided to present the Stanley Cup Final - Team Matchup marks, since the two teams are in fact going head-to-head now.

The official graphics package includes a large number of graphics, from primary marks, secondary marks, wordmarks, with the "Because It's The Cup" tagline, broadcast marks (NBC/NHL Network, Hockey Night/NHL Network and RDS/NHL Network) - all with both English and French versions, and with individual team versions as well.

For now, here are the variations of the Team Matchup Marks - both metallic and flat versions along with versions against a Black background.

Continuing my collection of early '00s Minor League Baseball graphics - the Omaha Golden Spikes of the Pacific Coast League. The Golden Spikes were a renamed franchise from the Omaha Royals, who moved to the PCL in 1998. In 2002, they once again became known as the Royals, before renaming again in 2011 as the Omaha Storm Chasers.

Official Team Colors:

Note that the Golden Spikes used a tint of Metallic Gold to represent the splayed innards of the baseball in the primary logo, and then used a Light Gray as a substitute in the cap logo.

I have a fairly large collection of official graphics for Minor League Baseball. Although I've occasionally posted some of the newest graphics sets in the past, I've also had plans to display some of the older franchises as well.

The earliest MiLB logosheets I have only included the primary mark, the cap mark, and a graphic depicting the cap mark on a cap (or caps).

Here are the Potomac Cannons of the Carolina League. The Cannons are now known as the Potomac Nationals; they had previously been known as the Prince William Cannons.

Note the use of "Plum" this unique color had also been designated as the original Purple (or "Eggplant") by the Might Ducks of Anaheim (NHL). Also note the side-by-side usage of metallic Silver and Gray.

As most of you already know, the Charlotte Bobcats are now the Charlotte Hornets. One somewhat surprising turn of events was the transfer of the historical records of the original Hornets from the Pelicans franchise to Charlotte.

Soon after the press conference today, the league (finally) released the Hornets graphics package which had been unveiled back in January. For some reason however, the "Hugo" mascot marks were NOT part of this release, so I won't be displaying them here. Once I get a hold of them, I will post them.

Note: I have not seen the uniforms, but do know that Black, a Dark Teal and Light Blue will be part of the color scheme; presumably as part of the uniform elements, including Light Blue pinstriping. Also note that I am emphasizing Dark Purple as the primary color - it is my guess that the new Hornets will wear Dark Purple road uniforms (based on what I've been able to piece together). We will see in a couple of weeks whether or not I'm right.

As I mentioned, I'll post the new "Hugo" marks as I soon as get them.

And stay tuned...I'm getting ready to post collegiate colors for four-year schools that have the actual Pantone values instead of generic color names...could be the start of a permanent trend...not sure yet.
