Colts appear to be emphasizing old logo in new merchandise

Since their inception as the Baltimore Colts in 1953, the Colts have used the above logo. It wasn’t until 1978 when the team decided to move forward with the horseshoe logo.

Last season, coach Chuck Pagano has been seen wearing that throwback logo. Now their training camp gear features that logo instead of the horseshoe. Does this mean the team is going to use that more often or is this just a design for coach?

Regardless, the team hasn’t mentioned their Baltimore roots as often as I thought they would since moving to Indianapolis. Their current set (gray facemasks, black cleats) does pay homage to that time so maybe this is another step towards it.

Either way, I like this logo a lot and am glad to see more of it.
