Over the years, the NHL has embraced throwback jerseys, camouflage jerseys, and reinvented the original six jersey’s for the video game NHL 19.
Ferry Designs decided to use the NHL’s jerseys for another purpose: imagining what Major League Baseball logos and colors would look like on hockey jerseys.
Let’s start with the Nationals and Orioles designs because the local threads look sick.
The Oriole’s design embraces the bird with a massive Oriole on the crest of the jersey, and the National’s “Curly W” as the primary symbol is reminiscent of what a Capitals jersey would look like if they embraced the Weagle.
All of the MLB jersey designs are available on Twitter, and Heart of NHL’s post received over 2000 retweets.

Ferry Designs was inspired to do the crossover because they’re “a massive hockey and baseball fan,” specifically of the St. Louis Blues and Cardinals.
As the World Series ended, Ferry said the jerseys would be a fun way to transition into hockey season.
To design the jerseys, Ferry started “by looking through a teams logo/jersey/color/font history.” From there, “I took this information and kind of ran with it making patterns/stripes or anything like that.”
The results include the Detroit Tigers using the Detroit Red Wings “D” scripted over navy and white, and the Arizona Diamondbacks using their old colors over the Coyotes kachina design.
The only reaction to the threads:
