The WHA Collection

Dallas Kirkpatrick has something special for us today. He writes:

I've been working on a project for a while now, recreating WHA jerseys. I decided to create 14 sets in total. My idea is that this might be what the jerseys looked like if the league were rebooted today — and I've purposely left out Quebec, Hartford, Edmonton, and Winnipeg as I've already done multiple concepts for these teams
I used all original logos (or variations thereof), and have stayed pretty close to the original color schemes in most cases. While I want to be creative, I wanted them all to be believable and based on something from the past.  A few of these designs have bold or outlandish design traits that probably wouldn't be used in real life, but hey, it's the WHA.

WHA Revival, Part 2

Nick Burton is reviving the WHA in a special series of concept posts. Part 2 kicks off with a classy new look for the Cincinnati Stingers. 

Those may be Miami Dolphins colors, but the San Diego Mariners' collegiate style really stands out.

And finally, here's what Nick thinks the Toronto Toros might look like if they'd survived to today.

Check back next Thursday for Part 3 of this four-part series.

0445: A Neat WHA Trio

Let's blow up WHA Week with not just one or two concepts but three from the prolific Bryan Dyck! Today, he shares his take on the Ottawa Nationals...

...the Houston Aeros (before the AHL team assumed the name)...

...and the Toronto Toros (or Birmingham Bulls depending on the year), who used to be the Nationals. Full circle. Bryan actually did more than just these teams in his own WHA series, but I thought three was enough for today. Tomorrow we get another taste of this — a prolific concept artist with a trio of WHA jerseys.
