    You’re right I should be giving more credit. I am no designer, merely a fan. And I know a lot work goes into designing any of these hats. But do you get where I’m coming from?

    I understand what your saying to an extent, I think youre seeing alot of “morphed letters” because the SSL is more mainstream than the TSL. With the TSL we saw a lot more mascot logos because how were we going to put personality into a league about food with just letters?
    Now we have a league about a popular and serious activity, and were getting more letters instead of mascots. Now looking back at it, I wished we did have some more variety with mascots and such.
    Perhaps the reason that people didnt go that route was the same reason I didnt, I didnt want my mascots to have to be skateboarding or holding a board or any other skateboarding stereotypes. Whether that was right or wrong remains to be seen but I wanted to make them accessible to non skaters as well as skaters.
    When looking at professional skate companies, I rarely saw mascots, I saw alot of interesting designs, letters and such. An I think thats what we have here in this contest too. I think we all did what we thought was going to be appropriate for this contest.

    That’s because they are professional skate companies and not a fictitious baseball league.

    True, but this is a fictitious baseball league. It’s a hat that says SSL on the back, people won’t take you as a hardcore skater in any of these hats

  5. TJ, I’m in Lowell bro! We got some talent here and my store is right across from Hadley skatepark (Manny Santiago, Dave Bachinsky)

  6. Nice! I went to UMASS dartmouth with a couple of cats from Lowell. I never been there myself but Im glad we can represent Taxachusetts in the clinkroom.

  7. Nah, I don’t skate. I have never broken a bone, and have no plans to either. So me and skateboards politely nod when we see each other and thats it. lol
