Chaparrals Alternate Logo
The Texas Chaparrals were an American Basketball Association (ABA) team that played in San Antonio, Texas from 1967 to 1973. The team had a long history of changing logos during its time in the ABA, which highlights the unique culture and spirit of San Antonio at the time.
The original logo for the Chaparrals was designed by artist Randy Smith and featured a cartoon-like armadillo with boxing gloves on his feet. This logo was used until 1970 when it was replaced by a more modern design featuring two crossed lances with basketballs on each end. This new logo represented both sportiness as well as strength and courage, which are traits associated with Texan culture at that time period.
In 1972, yet another change occurred when designer Bob Taylor created a more contemporary take on their previous two designs; this one featured an abstract blue horse head surrounded by stars to represent Texas’s state pride and independence while still retaining elements of athleticism seen in earlier versions of their logos.. While these three distinct logos all embody different aspects of Texan heritage they also serve as reminders about how much has changed since then – not only within sports but also within society itself!
