The 1983 Texas Rangers Logo -- Gone But Not Forgotten

The fine folks at Baseball Nation are good for at least one power rankings post per week. There's of course the run of the mill actual power rankings, but there's also more light hearted and creative lists too. Like the list of best sitcom locations; or the hair metal bands that each MLB area produced. Most recently, we have the worst logos in each team's history to chew on.

Finding its way into the top ten is the Texas Rangers' 1983 logo, the lone logo to last for only one year. As far as I know, it's the only time a logo has been in rotation for just a single year, but most likely not. Anyway, here's where the '83 gem landed on the list of best worst logos:

A one-season wonder. Even people in Texas thought, wait, those letters are too big. Hold on there. And you know there’s a guy named Tony Randolph who owns a Buick dealership out in Plano, and he still rocks that logo in the form of a custom belt buckle

For better or worse, he's probably right. I think I have seen that belt buckle somewhere in or around town. Be sure to check out the rest of the fun list and make Baseball Nation a part of your regular rotation for all things baseball.
