Graphical History of the Detroit Tigers D (1905)

The Tigers have worn essentially the same home uniform since 1934 — with a white letter D in blackletter typeface associated with Middle and Early Modern English and popularly referred to as “Old English”. When the Tigers are the visiting team, the D on their hats is orange and the word “DETROIT” appears across the shirt. A version of the team’s blackletter D was first seen on Tigers uniforms in 1904, after using a simple block D in 1903.
