Here's a question re the iconic NY logo no one has been able to satisfactorily answer for me:


Why is the NY on the jersey different than the NY on the cap and virtually every other place?


I've even asked this of the gentleman who gives the Yankee Stadium tours (don't know if he still does) and he kinda dodged the question...




wow Bobby, I never noticed that. Should send that question to the Yankee PR dept.




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


I spent most of my career in the commercial graphics business, so maybe I'm more likely to notice it. It's something that I've been curious about for quite some time.


Keeps me awake at night...




Same here Bob ,  spent several years as a graphic designer/Art director  for a large commercial  printing company and  eventually  gravitated into commercial  print sales.




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Took a summer job with a small printing company working in the bindery, delivery, etc.


For whatever reason, the owner of the company took a liking to me (I was a hard worker, but I think it was our mutual interest in sports, specifically baseball)...one day asked me if I had a tie and a sport coat. I said yes...he told me to show up the next day wearing them. Gave me business cards and told me to go out and bring in some business. I did...and turned out to be pretty good at it, which led to a 50 year career in the business.


Working in printing sales, I'm sure you know it was always a very competitive, cutthroat business. Of course, the business today is nothing like it was when you and I were in it.


I still do some sales "consulting", but glad I don't have to rely on it to survive.




We have so much in common. I'm in the same position  semi retired  just  maintain a couple of  accounts just to keep busy and also thankful  I don't  have to rely  on it. Been at it 56 years and as you said the business  has changed so dramatically. Certainly  wouldn't  want to be starting my career today in this business ,  it's  all about price and there are no more loyalties.




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Yep. The days of problem solving, "consulting" selling, which is what I really enjoyed and found very rewarding, are long gone. As you said...all about price. Like you, I have a few very good accounts I still handle for the same reasons you mentioned and, which frankly, allow my wife and I to do the travelling we're able to do without tapping into retirement funds.


Really just order taking..."easy money"...if there's such a thing.

Bob, I don't factually know the answer, but I'll speculate.


The one on the uniforms is thicker and bolder as it is on a much larger surface, so it needs to be more prominent. The one on the cap needs to be thinner as it is a much smaller surface. The thick, bold one on the cap would be too much imo.


The print one seems a compromise between the other two, representing the team and its uniform in their entirety.


I like all three of them for their individual applications.

The current Yankees top hat logo is the best of the three displayed. Glad they changed it, as it is ideal.


Adding the stitches, not having the bat sticking out of the top of the hat, along with making it look more like an actual bat, made it just right.
