New York Yankees Logo

Primary Logo (1946-1967)

What is the New York Yankees Logo?

This New York Yankees logo featured a patriotic Uncle Sam-style tophat on a red and white baseball bat, the bat also forming part of the letter k in the scripted Yankees across with a red and white baseball behind. This version differed slightly from the mark used today, the stars on the hat are different and the lighter blue has been eliminated. The Yankees used this logo as a co-primary logo from 1968-80, noted on this site as an alternate during this period.
