23. Miami Dolphins

Year Team Founded: William Bodenhamer Sr.

Year Logo Introduced: 1966

Harvey Green, the Dolphins' vice president of media relations once said of Bodenhamer's design, "This one was probably ahead of its time." The leaping Dolphin, created over two days for a fee of just $250, came into play in 1966 and has served as the basis for Dolphins' logos ever since (minor revisions to the Dolphins look and the sunburst have done little more than adjust the initial idea). Bodenhamer grounded the NFL in South Florida, he also created the iconic University of Miami logo giving him a double win in the world of Athletic logos.
