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."
1995 - 1996
The blue circle with silver trim was removed and the interlocking “CA” was enlarged. The “CA” is red with a white and blue outline.
1993 - 1994
After the “Big A” was removed from the parking lot in 1992, the Angels returned to their roots and re-adopted the interlocking “CA” logo with some differences. The Angels used the “CA” on against the traditional blue background circle with silver outline. The “A” has a silver halo on top. Designed with Major League Baseball Properties, the logo is similar to one the Angels had from 1965 – 1970.
1986 - 1992
In 1986, the Angels adopted the “Big A” a red letter with blue trim and a yellow halo around the “A.” The “A” is on top of a white baseball with red seams and a blue shadow of California in the background. A yellow star indicating the location of Anaheim.
1973 - 1985
In 1973 the Angels did some slight changes to the logo from 1971. The “A” in the scripted wordmark “angels” was lower-case and was changed to an upper case “Angels.” The star that indicated the location of Anaheim is now red and not yellow.
1971 - 1972
In 1971, the Angels adopted a logo that had the wordmark “angels” written diagonally on an outline of the State of California. A yellow halo hung around the top right corner of the state and a yellow star indicated the city of Anaheim.
1965 - 1970
The first California Angels logo was very similar to the previous “LA” logo. The only difference was instead of an interlocking “LA” letters, there was an interlocking “CA” letters.
