Expos Alternate Logo
The Montreal Expos' alternate logo history is an interesting one. The team was founded in 1969 and featured a cartoon-like mascot, Youppi!, as their primary logo. This design was used until 1991 when the Expos adopted a more modern look featuring the stylized “M” of their current primary logo. However, this wasn't the only change that took place during this period; they also changed their alternate logos multiple times throughout these years.
The first of these changes came in 1976 when they adopted a bolder version of the “M” with red trim around it to emphasize its shape and size even further than before. In 1987, they switched to an image resembling baseballs flying through space which represented both speed and power associated with America's pastime at that time - although some found it too abstract for comfort! Finally, in 1990 another new design appeared: two crossed bats behind home plate along with four stars above them symbolizing each division within Major League Baseball (MLB).
In 2004 after 35 years since its inception, MLB decided to remove all minor league teams from Canada including those belonging to Montreal making way for other franchises such as Toronto Blue Jays or Boston Red Sox who would take over Canadian cities instead - thus ending any chance for fans getting nostalgic about old school designs like those seen on former Expos' jerseys or hats bearing either classic M's or creative crosses/stars combination. Today Quebec still has some local teams playing under different leagues but none can match up nostalgia felt by many towards what once belonged exclusively there: The Montreal Expo Alternate Logo History!

Interwoven script pieces all come together to abbreviate the full name of the team. “eMb” in red white and blue forming a “M.” The letter “M” stands for the city of Montreal.
