The Reds have the unique distinction of being descendant of the oldest professional baseball club in America. Following All-Star Games played in Target Field, Citi Field and Kaufman Stadium, their heritage was a distinction worth celebrating. A decidedly vintage approach stemming from Mr. Red and the signature handlebar mustaches worn by the original Red Stockings, the identity came together with use of etchings, classic period typography and a style guide package that fit like a glove at the Great American Ballpark and downtown Cincinnati.
It is our distinct honor, along with the Cincinnati Red Stockings, est.1869, and the Commission, to witness the unveiling to the common public the official trademark of the 2015 "Mid-summer Classic." That's right! 2015's MLB All-Star Game will follow its favorite base runners to the home of the first professional baseball club: The Cincinnati Red Stockings.
“No American city has a baseball heritage as long and celebrated as Cincinnati…er…I mean will have, sometime in the future.”
“ I really can’t see that style of mustache ever going out of favor with cultured gentlemen.”
“The etchings, filigree and typography bring back a golden era…er…I mean, will probably be looked back on as a golden era of design. ”
"This collection of engravings, fine typography and trademarks accurately captures a special place in baseball history" said the traveling salesman.
