The 2007 emblem

While in 2007 the team introduced a completely different logo, we can’t say that they made any notable changes in their brand identity itself. The main focal point is still the same grumpy cat that could be seen on the previous Sacramento River Cats logo; he has just lifted its paws a little. The muzzle and its expression, as well as the color scheme, remained the same.
The only notable update is probably that the logo now looks more monolithic as the text has moved down and is now given in a different type.

Colors
