Twins Classic Logo Considered Among The Best In MLB History

Where would we be as sports fans if we didn't have power rankings or other lists to keep us entertained and/or infuriated during the incredible amounts of down time between games? Some might argue we'd be in a higher state of mind collectively, but regardless of one's take on the value of such lists, we can all agree that they're a fun and nicely packaged way to start conversations about the teams and players we love and hate.

What about the logos? Well, there's a list for that too, thanks to Grant Brisbee, an editor at Baseball Nation. Brisbee compiled a power rankings for the best and worst logos in Major League Baseball history. It couldn't be more subjective of course, but it's a nicely put together list of past and present logos. As you'll see, Brisbee values timelessness above all else, which explains why Kansas City, the Yankees and the Dodgers make up the top three in his list.

What about the Minnesota Twins you ask? Well, Brisbee rates them favorably.

The Twins have logos with two giant twins shaking hands over a bridge, and they're a little too weird and literal, but they're also kind of neat, and the Twins have even brought it back for Target Field. This one, though, made me stare at baseball cards when I was five and wonder where the "C" came from. Why wasn’t it "MT?" This was the life of a child before Wikipedia, and it was horrific. It screwed me up for years.

Check out the rest of the list. It certainly gets entertaining towards the bottom of the list, and I'm guessing that all but the most hardcore amongst you will see a logo that you'd never seen before. Like, say, the Boston Red Sox's look from 1950-1959.
