The funny thing about American Football is that the major league (NFL) has much less history than baseball does. The modern Superbowl era (where the two competing leagues joined together) happened in the 1970s so that means even though they have been around since the 1920s — their branding and marketing never had a real silver age like baseball.
However, there are some fascinating decisions teams made and of course some cities made some genius moves. In this article you expect to see a retrospective of classic NFL logos augmented by some interesting alternate logos and recent logos for comparison.
The Kitty Cats actually just revamped this logo into the one below this year!
Green Bay Packers
Kansas City Chiefs
new England Patriots
New York Giants
If I found gear for this logo, I’d snatch it up in a heartbeat. It’s one of those “it’s so bad it’s good” deals for me.
It looks dated for sure but this logo is actually used on occasion to this day.
The great organization that is the New York Giants revived this logo from their past sometime in the 1990s. Even though it has not been updated much since the 50s-60s, it stands up very well.
New York Jets
This looks like a dolphin if you squint a little.
San Diego Chargers
San Francisco 49ers
St. Louis Rams
Tampa bay Buccaneers
Tennessee Titans / Houston Oilers
The Oilers were moved to Tennessee and left this awesome oil tower behind as well as the fanbase.
