Vectorized scoreboard

Hello,
I am in dyer need of the US Cellular Scoreboard in Vector format.  My brother had a baby and I want to make him a neat wood carving but it has to be vector, ai, eps etc.  The "Cell" is the Chicago White Sox field.  Any help would be awesome!
Thanks

Being in the UK I have no idea what a white sox field is other than they have to be washed separate from the colours, but to help me understand, is this what you are looking for:

I see. The link above is just the Sox logo (S O X diagonally as above)

I am not sure but I don't think you will find this somewhere ready made online  exactly to your liking.

Do you also want the circular swirls, just none of the commercial logos?

The best suggestion would be to bring the image into Illustrator and trace the lines using the anchor point tools, then using fills and stroke effects (dotted line until it matches the image.

The swirls can be done with envelope distortion of an Objevt. Draw a wheel with 4 lines through the centre and align all centre so you get an eight spoke wheel. apply the swirl distortion until it fits the pattern then expand the item (command 'expand').

Line up your objects to fit.

The logo above will do nicely to fit in the layout and the type and star logo can be easily replicated with drawing tools (star) and a roman font.

I am not sure how versed you are in AI, but if you need more indepth help please post.
