This Timbers logo patch is estimated to be from 1980-1981, based on the accompanying patches that it was purchased with. While it is possible that these are modern reproductions, they all smelled old! Notice the registered trademark symbol ( ® ) in yellow thread on the the low twill background. The smaller, more recently produced bootleg has a trademark symbol (™) instead. The single thread chevron stitching and axe fill are different than the millennial bootleg of this logo on white. Of course, it’s different than the legitimate white logo too. This one is a smaller size so it’s conceivable in that era they used a separate file instead of digitally scaling the existing file.
Below, a batch lot of NASL era patches, including the Timbers.
