Georgia's doesn't work either because in order to fit into the little square sign shape, the state has to be made compact and misshapen and it looks silly. Same with South Dakota. They turned what's essentially a rectangle into a square.

I like those of Colorado, New Mexico, Kansas, California, Idaho, Alaska, Washington, and Wyoming. Florida, Oklahoma, and South Dakota have nice ones too.

I enjoy Minnesota's, but the shade of blue is too similar to the Interstate shields.

Basically I like the signs that have something to do with the state, or have the outline without distorting it (cough Alabama, Georgia, Arizona cough).

California's is just iconic and looks nice. Same with Pennsylvania, as others mentioned.

I love the unique ones like Wyoming, Nebraska, New Mexico, Utah, Kansas, and California. The state silhouettes really just seem boring to me. My least favorite would be Wisconsin, might confuse it with a U.S. Route sign
