The History League
Faux sports team t-shirts for important people, events, and movements in history. What can I say, I like to combine a visual style that's usually associated with being "macho" and interests that are stereotypically considered "geeky". If you have any additional suggestions they'd be most welcome!

A quick thank you to the fine folks of AskMe for providing me some great ideas to get get started with!

You've already used "Revolution" but "Industrial Revolution" would, I imagine, lend itself to a creative rendering.

That's a good call, I'll add it to my list.

Thanks!

Holy cow, these are awesome!

Surely the 1943 Colossus vs. Enigma final needs a commemorative shirt? (The Enigma nameplate logo is already halfway there.)

Oddly enough I started the process of making that exact combo, but when scanning the wikipedia entry on Colossus to make sure I spelled "Bletchley" correctly I noticed this line in the opening section:

"It has sometimes been erroneously stated that Alan Turing designed Colossus to aid the Cryptanalysis of the Enigma machine.[4] Turing's machine that helped solve Enigma, was the electromechanical Bombe, not Colossus."

Eeeep! I was one of those people that got it mixed up. So I scrapped that, but heck I may finish doing an Enigma design anyways as a stand alone.

Holy crap. I never thought I'd see a t-shirt for my [totally ass-kicking] heroine, Clara Barton. These are amazing!

I had a dream the other night that there was a Puerto Rican baseball team named the NASA Administrators. There were also invisible cats disguised as Hawai'ian shirts, trying to incite the players to unionize, but, weird dream logic aside, it still seemed like a good team name in the cold light of morning.
