So let's jump right into the concepts!
Vancouver Canucks Concept - Leo D.
MLB NL Central Crossover Concept: David P.
Milwaukee Brewers: Brewers share a design, as well as their owner, with the Ads. The Brewers' color scheme doesn't really work well with this jersey design. The white jersey is ok but the dark jersey is too dark. The power blue pops on the jerseys for the Ads but the Brewers don't have a color that does that for them.
St. Louis Blues: I think there's a pretty good color balance here. Red and white are most prominent like they should be. Maybe I'd swap the red and blue on the white jersey's sleeves. The crest is hard to see on the red jersey so I'd give that an outline. The shoulder logo is tough to see on the dark jersey as well so I'd use the white "STL" on both jerseys.
Chicago Cubs: The Cubs are my favorite team for some reason. The Blackhawks jersey scheme looks good in any color scheme. This scheme isn't too different. The white jersey looks good. The red jersey doesn't fit. The Cubs have never had a red jersey so this doesn't make sense. The blue and red should be swapped on that dark jersey. The shoulder logos on both jerseys look a bit too close to the collar.
Pittsburgh Pirates: The Pirates jersey isn't too different from a Penguins jersey in terms of color scheme. It's pretty much what the Pens would look like if they ditched vegas gold in favor of the classic sport gold.
Cincinnatti Reds: We finish the NL Central with the Reds. If the black jersey is the dark jersey than the red jersey can't be a light jersey. I'd keep the red jersey and make the black jersey into a white jersey. On that red jersey I think I'd rather have the white be more prominent than the black.
Detroit Red Wings Concept - Stephen T.
Detroit Tigers Hockey Concept - Ben A.
Houston Astros Hockey Concept - Ben A.
There's a few things I would want to see differently, for example, the wordmark and the star being centered. First off, use this logo or something similar on the shoulders, its difficult to see the H in the current shoulder patch. As for centering the wordmark and star, it works on Baseball uniforms but not so much hockey jerseys. I'd also start the striping lower on the torso so the wordmark isn't right under the collar like that. Also I'd consider making the second half of the sleeves blue, a lot of players wore blue undershirts and it looked pretty good.
Philadelphia Flyers Alternate Concept - Dylan W.
Tampa Bay Lightning Alternate Jersey - Bastian
Washington Capitals Concept - Bastian
Toronto Maple Leafs Concept - Stephen T.
Winnipeg Jets Concept - Kevin P.
