13. New York Mets

Designer: Ray Gatto

Year Logo Introduced: 1962

Cartoonist Ray Gatto made clear that the New York Mets represent the entire metropolitan New York area with his design for the team's logo. Introduced in 1962, the skyline features notable features in the New York skyline—including the Williamsburg Savings Bank, the Woolworth Building, the Empire State Building, and the United Nations Building. The bridge, not surprisingly, acts as a link between the boroughs. Surround all by a baseball and you've got a perfect athletic logo.
