Seattle Pilots in the Sunday Comics

The comic strip "The Argyle Sweater" by Scott Hilburn had a great look at retired sports logos in today's Sunday paper, including the Seattle Pilots logo playing checkers with the Minnesota North Stars logo:

Also included are the Montreal Expos, Seattle SuperSonics, Houston Oilers, Hartford Whalers, and Quebec Nordiques.

I wonder how many readers would be able to identify all the teams.  I'm guessing a lot of people won't recognize the Pilots.

Thanks to Scott for a great Pilots reference!

Funny, in an odd way, made me laugh, but the Pilots logo is a bit obscure for most people. The cartoon is more franchise moving and changing team names than the dropping of a logo. the next cartoon should have the defunct franchise complaining about teams that moved with no logo change and now their names don't make sense, LA lakers, Utah Jazz.

Cute cartoon. I recognized all the logos and remember the teams partly because of being alive when they were around and partly because of collecting cards.

As a Redskins fans I'm a bit upset at the score the artist decided to post. Blah Cowboys UGh.
