Yankees Primary Logo
The New York Yankees have a long and storied history, and the team’s primary logo has been an iconic symbol of that legacy for many years. The original logo was designed in 1909 by Louis B. Tiffany & Co., which featured a blue interlocking “NY” on a white baseball cap with red trimming around the edges. This design remained unchanged until 1947 when it was updated to include navy blue lettering instead of the traditional red, as well as adding stars above each letter to signify their World Series wins at that time.
From then until 1973, minor changes were made such as changing from block letters to script fonts or adjusting colors slightly but overall this version stayed relatively consistent throughout those decades before being retired in 1974 due to copyright issues with Major League Baseball (MLB). In 1976 however, MLB allowed teams like New York who had previously used logos without permission back into compliance by licensing them officially through its own organization so they could be used legally once again without any problems arising from copyright infringement laws.
This new iteration of the NYY Logo still remains largely similar today; featuring navy-blue cursive letters surrounded by stars representing their championship titles over time while also incorporating different shades of grey for added detail and texture within its design elements - all coming together beautifully against either an off-white or light gray background depending on where you see it displayed most often! As one would expect given how much respect fans have held towards this particular emblem since first seeing it nearly 110 years ago now: no matter what else may come down the road ahead there will always remain something special about having your very own piece bearing these three simple yet powerful words emblazoned upon them: "NEW YORK YANKEES."
As a New York Yankees fan, I'm excited to hear about the upcoming MLB League Teams Logo Battle! This competition will pit all 30 teams against each other in an epic battle of logos and designs. Fans can vote for their favorite team's logo, so make sure you get out there and show your support for the Yanks!
