“Superba” was the title of an 1890s entertainment spectacle brought forth by the Hanlon family.

The Brooklyn team would continue to be called the Superbas until 1910. There logo was the classic letter "B" in different colors, however the last logo brought some creativeness by adding a diamond in sticks.
