This is the evolution of the Seahawks logo:

The Pacific northwest is home to a number of native tribes, among them the Kwakwaka’wakw. The Kwakwaka’wakw have transformation masks, with an animal head on the outside that opens up to a human face inside.

This one seems to clearly be a model for the original Seahawks logo.

Also, Seattle QB Russell Wilson, who was a Rule 5 draft pick of the Texas Rangers last December (as if he’ll be playing MLB any time soon) will appear in his Rangers uniform on a Topps limited edition card.
