The 25 Best Athletic Logos of All Time

22. Portland Trailblazers

Designer: Frank Glickman

Year Logo Introduced: 1970

Trailblazer's founder Harry Glickman practiced some nepotism hiring his cousin, Frank Glickman of Boston, to design the team's original logo. The pinwheel interprets the game of basketball itself, two teams of five facing off in spirited competition. In that, the logo is one of the most conceptual in all of sports. Portland native Steve Sandstrom updated the logo in the early 2000s but didn't dare mess with the initial idea.
