Bryce Harper gets his own logo

Apr 12, 2013, 4:00 PM EDT

I guess you could say he’s kind of a big deal:

 

As he says in the tweet, this is his unique Under Armor logo, complete with the nifty 34/BH thing going on. It’s no Air Jordan silhouette or anything, but not bad for a 20 year-old kid.

    I was disappointed when I saw that the logo didn’t picture a clown holding a microphone.

      Yeah. That’s a clown logo, bro.

        I’m not your friend, mate!

        I’m not your mate, pal!

        I’m not your mate, buddy!

        aw damn, I circled it back too soon.

        I’m not your pal, dude!

      Is that some kind of guy thing there?

      (PS you are so lucky I did not say “I am not your dude, son” — or girl :) )

        What would I do without you dudes?

    #34 is, was, and always will be Sweetness, but also Bo Jackson and Herschel Walker as well. Shaq, Sir Charles and The Dream as well come to mind. But other than Nolan Ryan, I can’t think of another #34 in baseball…probably was one, but I’m sure I’m having a brain cramp right now.

      Ugh…Doc (facepalm)

      • dl3mk3 - Apr 12, 2013 at 4:23 PM

        Puckett was 34.

        Mr. Dobalina, Mr. Bob Dobalina?

    • Kevin S. - Apr 12, 2013 at 4:55 PM

      Yeah, it’s weird how with 122 professional franchises in major North American sports there were a bunch of famous/outstanding players to wear a given number, and that none of them owns it.

      David Ortiz pops to mind.

    Love it.

  5. sdelmonte - Apr 12, 2013 at 4:46 PM

    Pretty nifty.

    I teach high schoolers and I can tell you that they idolize Harper. It’s not the Jumpman (Jordan) logo, for sure, but I can see his gear being very marketable.

  7. hittfamily - Apr 12, 2013 at 4:51 PM

    I don’t like it. If the 34 wasn’t pointed out, I never would have noticed it. Really cool after it is explained, but good ad campaigns should not have to be explained.

    • Kevin S. - Apr 12, 2013 at 4:56 PM

      I thought it was easy enough to pick up, but as a Big Ten fan I was used to looking at that 11 cutout in the logo until Nebraska joined.

    • albertmn - Apr 12, 2013 at 5:01 PM

      It took me about 5 seconds, but I was able to figure it out fine. My problem was concentrating on what the red was supposed to be first, as that stood out. Once I realized the white held the “hidden” info, it was easy to see. I think if the B/3 were a little more rounded, it would look more like both a B and a 3, though.

    I like Bryce Harper’s style, and I’m thoroughly enjoying the process of the Nats becoming my second-favorite team behind my Orioles.

    That said, it seems premature for Bryce to have his own “logo”. Seems like that’s the kind of thing that should happen once you’ve done…I don’t know….something. It’s not like Bryce is the first young baseball star to ever play the game.

    Just seems a little odd. Oh well, good for him.

    Many of you are not old enough to know, but while Jordan’s logo is now so obviously him, it wasn’t as obvious when it first came out. I am sure more than a few had to have it explained, and then once it is explained it is obvious from then on. I don’t know if there would be any baseball pose that would work as a logo like the Jordan silhouette works as his logo.
