Mets Primary Logo
The New York Mets have a long and storied history that goes back to 1962 when they were first established as an expansion team in Major League Baseball. Over the years, the Mets have had several different primary logos which reflect their identity as a team. The earliest logo was simply two blue letters “NY” with a baseball in between them; this logo was used from 1962-1980 and is still seen on some merchandise today. In 1980, the iconic interlocking “NY” logo replaced it; this design featured orange lettering set against a navy blue background and has been used ever since then for all official branding purposes.
In 2012, however, there was another update made to the classic NY symbol: an alternate version of it featuring white lettering instead of orange became available for use by fans during certain games or events. This new version quickly gained popularity among fans who wanted something more modern than traditional versions of old logos but also wanted to keep their connection with tradition alive through familiar symbols like these ones from past eras of Mets baseball history. It wasn't until 2016 that this alternate white version officially became part of regular branding efforts by being included on uniforms worn during home games at Citi Field stadium in Queens - making its way into even greater prominence within New York's sports culture!
Today both versions (the original orange one and the newer white one) are widely recognized throughout MLB circles as representative symbols not just for the city itself but also for its beloved ball club - serving up nostalgia while keeping things fresh at the same time! Whether you're looking back fondly upon days gone by or eagerly anticipating what lies ahead, there's no doubt that these primary logos will always remain firmly entrenched within hearts & minds alike across generations who love watching America's favorite pastime come alive every summer season here in NYC!

Todd Radom Design: Reimagining the Mets Logo for the 21st Century
The New York Mets' time-honored skyline logo was created in 1961 and has been utilized by the franchise—with a few tweaks—ever since then. The visual landscape of New York has evolved over the past half century, the result of both development and of tragedy. Most recently, the city's booming economy has given birth to a transformed skyline, happening even as I write this. According to Wikipedia: Since 2003, New York City has seen the completion of 23 buildings that rise at least 600 feet (183 m) in height. Thirteen more are under construction, including One World Trade Center, which will be the tallest building in the country when complete. One World Trade Center is part of the redevelopment of the World Trade Center, which also includes the 975-foot (297 m) 4 World Trade Center, 7 World Trade Center and the two under-construction buildings: the 1,350-foot (411 m) 2 World Trade Center and the 1,171-foot (357 m) 3 World Trade Center.
