For many years now, logos have provided a great form of advertising for any entity that uses them. Logos are seen as a small identifying mark for its company, and oftentimes companies are remembered and recognized through their logo.
Practically everyone in the world identifies Nike with its little "swoosh" mark. Designed by Portland State University graphic design student Carolyn Davidson back in 1971, Nike owner Phil Knight incorporated the logo into every single marketing campaign implemented by Nike, and that logo is now one of the most recognizable logos in the world.
FedEx, Google, Coca-Cola, eBay and Harley Davidson all have easily recognizable logos that they have used to help promote their brands. That has been the primary objective of logos—establishing and identifying a brand.
Major League Baseball and its teams have followed the same exact principle—creating logos for its product in order to promote and advertise. While some team logos have been in place for many years, other teams have tinkered several times with logos to better represent their clubs.
Rather than do a list of the best MLB logos in history, we will present the best logos from each MLB team, along with teams who are now defunct or who have moved on to other cities.
