The Alerts, Flying Wildcats, and Tigers logos are not easily accessed on the Web. The script "H" logo worn by the Tigers can be seen in this photo from 1906:

The Hamilton-Princeton log dispute is well known. The old Princeton athletic logo is a reversal of the Tiger-Cat one:

Jake Gaudaur is widely credited as the designer behind the original leaping tiger. Princeton's "version" began to appear in the 1960s. The Cats maintain that the tiger logo is theirs.

So that is a snapshot of Tiger-Cat artwork since the 1950 merger. :wink:

I guess the logo rundown of mine was too much for here for whatever reason (I cannot see them in my browser), so please go to http://www.sportslogos.net/team.php?id=94 for the logos I referenced.

Oski Wee Wee,

.......same here.....Sarah Palin's photo in a Ticats jersey doesn't show on mine......I'll try again....

.....there, that's better

how come, the jersey sarah palin is holding, does not have the CFL logo in the V-neck?

It's a women's jersey. The women's jerseys in the pictures on the TiCats online store don't have the CFL logo either.

This site shows helmets used over the years.

Not quite sure whatโ€™s going on with the 2009 Labour Day helmet - looks like the logo is missing (technical glitch?).
