Chaparrals Alternate Logo
The Dallas Chaparrals are a professional basketball team that has been in existence since 1967. The franchise is now known as the San Antonio Spurs, and they have had several different logos throughout their history. One of these alternate logos was used from 1971 to 1973 and featured an image of a cowboy riding a horse with his lasso in hand. This logo was meant to represent the Wild West spirit that Texas is known for, as well as to honor the city’s Western heritage.
This particular logo became so popular that it inspired other teams around the league such as Denver Nuggets and Houston Rockets who adopted similar designs for their own alternate logos at one point or another during this same time period. The Chaparrals also used this design on merchandise items like t-shirts which were sold both locally and nationally during its three-year run from 1971-1973 before being retired due to copyright issues with another company already using a very similar logo design at that time.
Overall, while not officially part of any current branding efforts by either team today, this iconic Cowboys & Lassos Logo will always remain an important piece of Dallas Chaparral’s history - representing both Texan pride and nostalgia alike! It serves not only as a reminder about how far sports branding has come but also how much influence can be created through something seemingly small like an alternative logo choice all those years ago!
