California Angels Primary Logo History
The California Angels were known for 31 years before changing to the Anaheim Angels with the purchase from Disney. Their original logo in 1965 is a carry over from the move from Los Angeles, great looking logo with wings on baseball. The following logos of the full state of California with a halo on the corner is true to the name of the state. The last two logos are typical baseball logos of interlocking letters "CA."
