Indians 2011 Media Guide cover

On Friday, the 2011 Media Guide cover was posted to Nick Pietravoia's Tumblr account, revealing the tribute to Bob Feller.  It is a very cool design, which should come as no surprise to Indians fans.  You see, Mr. Pietravoia has been working with the Tribe on several projects and has created some very cool graphics.  One such item that has been spotted on Spring Training uniforms is the Feller Tribute patch:
I have to say, this is one of the best "In Memorium" patches I've seen on a jersey. The use of Feller's iconic pitching stance evokes the images of yesteryear.  I wasn't even born when Feller pitched, nor was I born when he was inducted into the Hall.  Yet, as part of the history and lore of the Indians, I instantly recognize the person behind the silhouette.

I'm generally not a "patch collector," though I have a couple.  This is one I hope to add to my Indians collection some day.

If you check out the link below, you can find other murals, banners, etc that have been designed by Mr. Pietravoia.

  1. I like the Indians media book cover as well. It is hard to believe we are about to embark on our first baseball season as Indians fans without the great Bob Feller. Just maybe he will be a special angel to the Tribe this year, and we come out of nowhere and surprise the rest of baseball. I like the patch too. Keep me posted if you are able to locate one. I will let you know if I find it here in Ohio anywhere. And like always, Go Tribe and happy collecting!
