Meaning and history

Missouri Tigers Logo history


While the previous Missouri Tigers logo, which was introduced in 1995, was purely typographic, the current one conjures up more emotions due to the fact it depicts a living creature, the tiger.
The old logo was based on a big, heavy “M.” The letter given in black with thin yellow trim belonged to an old-fashioned slab serif type.
Only a year later, the updated Missouri Tigers logo was introduced. While it has preserved the color scheme of its predecessor, the emblem itself is utterly different in its style and mood. You can see an ellipse housing a stylized tiger’s head. The creature looks fierce due to the sharp fangs and the expression of the muzzle.

Missouri Tigers baseball logo
The University of Missouri has a pretty successful baseball team that became the NCAA Tournament champions in 1954. We should point out, though, their most successful period has taken place in the 1950s and the 1960s. And yet, several of their 22 NCAA Tournament appearances took place in the 2000s. As of 2019, the latest of them was in 2012.
