They would probably start with a cease and desist letter. But they could come with a court order to seize all your merchandise and your shop equipment. It just depends on who gets a burr under their saddle for what you did. Probably not worth it.

And close is an infringement, especially if it is clear you intended to be close for marketing reasons. Sports teams, with good reason, are very diligent about protecting their trademarked logos, colors and designs.

Something such as a blue box with a silver star could be argued as generic, but if the star is the same proportions with the same orientation as the Cowboys, you are likely going to have a hard time supporting your cause.

In any case, they have much deeper pockets than you and they could bankrupt you just by the legal fees if they find you irksome.

I wouldn’t do it.
