Wow, I really enjoyed looking at the designs. Thanks for sharing.
I agree the Brewers jersey is gorgeous.

True Value...really?

It's gotta be Walgreen, or McDonald's.

I like the Royals, O's, Blue Jays, Rays, Cardinals, Brewers, Reds, Astros, and Angels.

The White Elephant A's logo is a little odd. Some of the other's, like the Sox, are a little boring.

Interesting concept, but I feel like the addition of the corporate sponsors was forcing it a bit. There's precedent for soccer jerseys without them (national team jerseys), and ads on baseball teams' jerseys are (should be) like peanut butter on a taco--not there. baseball has a long history of in-stadium advertisement, but it will be the sport that holds out longest against ads on jerseys, and I'm glad for that. 9 times out of 10, they completely ruin the visual aesthetic of a jersey by not matching the team's colors at all (or in some other way).
Witness otherwise decent KHL jerseys completely ruined by this hideous green rectangular "Megafon" patch:

In the case of these MLB soccer jerseys, I think the ads were fine. All club teams have sponsored kits nowadays.

This is not my favorite marketing concept.
