MLB Logo

More than two weeks ago The Wall Street Journal reported on Jerry Dior, the uncredited designer of the Major League Baseball logo that has been the league’s identifier since the late 1960s and has spawned endless iterations for other professional sports. Dior isn’t looking for fame or fortune, just acknowledgment from the league who, despite having enough supporting stories from Dior’s peers, is still looking for some sort of magical evidence that Dior did the logo. Paul Lukas of Uniwatch, recently interviewed Dior about the logo and there is some great stuff in there: “I just did it, y’know? It was fast. I think I spent just an afternoon on it.”

Thanks to Stuart McCoy for the tip.
