Phillies Alternate Logo
The Philadelphia Phillies have a long and storied history in Major League Baseball, dating back to 1883 when they were founded as the Quakers. Throughout its more than 130 years of existence, the team has had several different logos and alternate logos that have been used on uniforms, merchandise, and other promotional materials. Each logo has its own unique story behind it that reflects the rich heritage of this historic franchise.
One of the most iconic alternate logos for the Phillies was first introduced in 1984 with a stylized “P” inside an orange circle surrounded by navy blue trimming with white stars at each point around it. This design is still widely recognized today as one of Philadelphia's most beloved symbols representing their baseball team. The following year saw another variation on this theme with a red-orange circle surrounding a navy blue “P” which continues to be seen on some merchandise items today such as hats or t-shirts bearing this classic logo design from 1985 onwards up until present-day usage.
In recent years there have been further alterations made to these classic designs including adding additional colors like green or yellow into them while keeping true to original elements like stars or circles found within them; however, none seem quite so striking nor memorable compared to those two initial designs from 1984 & 85 respectively which are still considered favorites among fans even today! It is clear why these two pieces remain staples within any collection related specifically to memorabilia associated directly with Philly's professional baseball club –– they represent not only many generations worth of success but also an enduring spirit shared amongst all who cheer for America's oldest continuous one name/one city franchise: The Philadelphia Phillies!
