Pacers Alternate Logo
The Indiana Pacers have had a long and storied history with their alternate logos. For over 50 years, the team has used various designs to represent the franchise in different ways, from modern takes on classic elements to bold new looks that capture the spirit of Indiana basketball.
The earliest alternate logo for the Pacers was introduced in 1967 when they were still part of the ABA (American Basketball Association). This logo featured a red-and-white striped ball set against an orange background and outlined by white stars. The words “Indiana” and “Pacers” were also included on either side of this design. This look would go on to be one of the most iconic images associated with Indiana basketball for decades after its introduction until it was replaced by another design in 1988 which featured an abstract version of a player dribbling inside what appeared to be half circles or hoops around him; this is often referred to as ‘the Pacer Man’ logo due its unique characterization within sports branding.
In 2017, however, things changed drastically when Nike took control over all NBA uniforms including those worn by teams like Indianapolis' own Pacers squad who unveiled their brand new primary mark featuring two overlapping blue P's encircled within navy blue lines – symbolizing both pride and power while also paying homage back towards previous iterations such as 'the Pacer Man'. While some may not agree with these changes made so far away from traditional designs like 'the Striped Ball', there can be no denying that these revamped visuals are now firmly entrenched into Indy's rich heritage having already been seen throughout local arenas during games since then - proving just how timeless certain symbols can become even if they weren't originally intended too!
