Raptors unveil 20th anniversary logo

The Toronto franchise is currently the only NBA team outside of the US...

It's hard to believe we've already been watching the Toronto Raptors for 20 years.

The team is ramping up for a celebratory season, celebrating 20 years in this city.

In a release the team says "The logo incorporates past and present team designs to honour the history of the club since its inception in 1995. The logo is anchored by the original Raptors font and jagged pinstripe jersey design with the current claw secondary mark."

“This anniversary logo embodies the excitement of both the future and the past of Raptors basketball, but most importantly, it reminds us of the success and history we’re working to create here,” said Tim Leiweke, President and CEO of Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment. “The next year promises to be one of the most important yet in team history as we celebrate the Raptors’ 20th Anniversary, but also prepare for the chance to welcome the world with the 2016 NBA All Star Game.”
