No love for the new All-Star Game logo?

Our friends over at the Brand New blog have weighed in on the new logo for the 2008 All-Star Game. They aren't impressed:
"Ok, ok, ok. I get your angle. Yes, tradition. Here's a great tradition you should try: beautifully drawn illustration. I've got no beef with the pinstripes or the facade. This logo HAS to have the most famous baseball landmark in history. But does it have to be so boring?"

While The Blog might suggest that a certain Friendly Confines is the "most famous baseball landmark in history," it can't quibble with Brand New's assessment. However, The Blog admits that it has a longstanding love for Michael Schwab. The Bay Area-based illustrator's artwork was used with all the associated signage for the 2007 event. He also created a beloved series of fantastic illustrations that serve as the logos for The Golden Gate National Parks.

Anyhoo, here's hoping the folks in St. Louis kick it up a notch in 2009.

That's funny. I read the part about "the most famous baseball landmark in history," and my first thought was "What? I see no ivy here." Which apparently was what you thought as well.

And yeah, the new logo is boring.

Anyone else notice how the ball in the S.F. ASG logo seems to be coming from somewhere in the stands down the first base line? That always bothered me.
