Yankees Logo

Yankees Logo, When one thinks of the New York Yankees, most people think of pinstripes with the letters “NY” combined with the cap and shirt. The ‘New York’ is adapted from a design by Louis B. Tiffany.
However, the primary team logo consists of a red hat and white striped top with blue band and the stars at the top of a baseball bat. And now a Yonkers woman is suing the Yankees for trademark infringement over the symbol of the team.

Tanit Buday says his uncle, Kenneth Timur, was commissioned to create a team logo in 1936 and was never paid for their work. Buday seeks unspecified damages in the lawsuit.

Alice McGillion, a spokeswoman for the New York Yankees, told CNN “this is a wonderful country where anyone can sue for anything, even if the allegations are more than 70 years of age.”

The Yankees have recognized Enrique Alonso Keller, a sports illustrator who lived in Bronxville, New York, as the operator logo hat top. But yet another family two years ago said Sam Friedman, an artist in the “21″ Club in New York, logo scribbled on a napkin in the 1940′s.
