  1. I'm replacing the felt on my poker table, and would like to put a big Yankees logo, either the top hat one or the big NY on it.

    I've found blue micro-suede to use as the base material, but don't have any idea how to do the logo without it either A) looking like a shotty arts and crafts project or B) coming off as soon as the first beer inevitably gets spilled on it.

    I'm thinking I'd have to do it as a stencil, but wouldn't have the first clue as to what type of paint would work with something like that. Anyone know how they do the lettering on casino tables? Any ideas appreciated.

  2. I built my own table with custom logo. I don't have the address, but google casino supply or something and get legit speed cloth felt. Then go to your local embroiderer for the logo. I was surprised at how reasonably priced the felt and embroidery were.

  3. Instead of painting, what about having the logo embroidered on it?

    It's not as smooth, but it would definitely be more durable and last longer.

  4. Take it to a local air brush shop. A buddy of mine did this and it looked really good.

  5. Why Ruin a good poker table by putting that filth on it. Maybe you should just put two big $$

    I tried to go through a couple of local embroidery/screen print shops because of the first two suggestions, and none of them were allowed to do the yankees logo. Any ideas if an air brush shop would have any problem doing this? What did your buddy's table have put on it?

    I'd been waiting for the yankee hate to rear it's ugly head. It's ok, popper. The blue jays might win one world series this century, too!

  7. He had a GA logo put on his. The screen printers can not do it because of copyright. Find a good airbrush guy and you are set. i think he found his through his tattoo guy.

    We probably won't win one cause of teams lthat run operations like yours that will bankrupt The MLB. But we did win 2 b2b in my life so im still thrilled

    What about a silkscreening place nearby??? or even changing the logo slightly so it doesnt infringe???

  11. If you can find a huge patch pre-made, or material that has it pre-printed, I bet you can get those shops to put it on. Their issue is probably with the fact of duplicating the logo, not necessarily working with it.

  13. well there is billard felt with the yankees on it(or any other team ftm) that would work but not as slick as speed felt. at customtablefelt.

  14. While I can handle a few guys throwing jabs at the yankees out of jealousy, I can't sit back and tolerate the Bodog liaison calling me a n00b. Tell Calvin Ayres to blow me, and I'll give him a UB hat. lol - sorry - guess I'm sensitive about blowing half of my account on the last Brock Lesnar fight. I really like the layovers the tournaments offer there since only 7 people sign up.

    I think I have it all figured out. I'm getting Navy blue speed felt with a diamond pattern in it (thanks, Nate), and talked with an airbrush guy off craigslist about putting the logo on (thanks JksRBetter). The guy I talked to has a gallery in downtown roanoke and is an artist - he just does these projects pretty cheaply as sidework to keep everything going. He's a cubs fan and said he'd rather do one with a big Chicago logo, the infamous sign on the stadium, the ivy on the walls, etc - so now I'm thinking about the facade at yankee stadium, the lettering on the front, a fancier logo, maybe monument park, or just all of the retired numbers with the name underneath each. I'm probably getting a little too crazy, but that could be pretty sweet - especially when I almost always play cards with a Philly fan, and at least one Boston guy.

  15. Use speedcloth and have it embroidered with whatever you want. I;ve used several different felts on my tables and speedcloth is the most durable

  17. you had your chance in 96 being up 2-0 in the series.

    you've lost all 8 WS games that you've played with the yankees since.

    I can understand the hate.

    Henry Louis "Lou" Gehrig (June 19, 1903 – June 2, 1941), nicknamed "The Iron Horse" for his durability, was an American Major League Baseball first baseman. He played his entire 17-year baseball career for the New York Yankees (1923-1939). Gehrig set several major league records.[1] He holds the record for most career grand slams (23).[2] Gehrig is chiefly remembered for his prowess as a hitter, his consecutive games-played record and its subsequent longevity, and the pathos of his farewell from baseball at age 36.
    A native of New York City, he played for the New York Yankees until his career was cut short by amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), now commonly known in the United States and Canada as Lou Gehrig's disease.[5] Over a 15-season span from 1925 through 1939, he played in 2,130 consecutive games, the streak ending only when Gehrig became disabled by the fatal neuromuscular disease that claimed his life two years later. His streak, long considered one of baseball's few unbreakable records,[6] stood for 56 years, until finally broken by Cal Ripken, Jr., of the Baltimore Orioles on September 6, 1995.
    Gehrig accumulated 1,995 runs batted in (RBI) in 17 seasons, with a career batting average of .340, on-base percentage of .447, and slugging percentage of .632. Three of the top six RBI seasons in baseball history belong to Gehrig. He was selected to each of the first seven All-Star games (though he did not play in the 1939 game, as he retired one week before it was held),[7] and he won the American League's Most Valuable Player award in 1927 and 1936. He was also a Triple Crown winner in 1934, leading the American League in batting average, home runs, and RBIs.[8]

  20. Just get a Yankee sheet and put it on top of the felt. Feels the same and you can clean it a few times before you have to repace it. Put a sheet of plastic over the felt and you can take it off you want to be fancy.

  21. I appreciate it, thatislife, but it's one of the major pieces of furniture in my den, so I want to do it right. I'm getting the speed cloth, attaching it to the wood inlay, and getting it airbrushed on. I'm excited about how it will look.
