Giants Alternate Logo
The New York Giants have been a part of Major League Baseball since 1883 and they have had a few different logos throughout the years. The current logo, which features an orange "NY" on top of a black baseball outlined in white with blue trim, has become synonymous with the team since its introduction in 1951. However, prior to this iconic design, there was another alternate logo that featured prominently for several decades: the interlocking "NY" logo. This classic look dates back to 1933 when it was first seen on their uniforms and caps as well as other team merchandise such as pennants and programs.
This unique design consisted of two large letters intertwined together - one letter being an upper-case “N” while the second letter is lower case “y” – both written out in script font style against either a white or light grey background color depending upon where it appeared at any given time during its usage period from 1933 until 1950 when it was retired by then owner Horace Stoneham along with his decision to rename them simply 'the Giants'. During this time span, fans could be found sporting apparel featuring this distinct emblem all across America's east coast from Boston down through Washington D.C., showcasing just how popular these symbols were amongst supporters even before they became associated with today's modern branding efforts for professional sports franchises nationwide!
Despite being replaced by what is now considered their primary insignia over sixty years ago; many diehard followers still remember fondly those days gone past when wearing something adorned by these recognizable characters meant you were part of something special - not only did you support your favorite ball club but also showed off your allegiance proudly every single day without fail! It wasn't until recently however (in 2012) that new life would be breathed into old memories thanks largely due recognition given during MLB All-Star Game festivities held San Francisco Bay Area; resulting in increased demand among collectors looking to add piece history to their collection or wardrobe alike...and so began resurgence popularity once again after long absence public viewings which continues to gain momentum each year despite original retirement date far behind us now!
