    Report: Miami Marlins Getting New Logos for 2019

    Photo's I've seen, it looked teal on a black cap. That looks more panthers blue there. Probably not that big of a leap from teal to that blue though. Someone here's mentioned in the past the Marlins teal got more blue in 2008 or so, can anyone confirm? ColorWerx maybe?

    It looks like the flexbase jersey material they use for games now. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but the BP jerseys template hasnt changed and its still the solid drifit material with no mesh on it right? I think this is a Game Alternate, and were going to see a blue BP as well.

    Also, from looking at the colors on the cap- I'd say the blue is a little more tealish, the red a little pinkish red. A hint of silver on the mouth, belly and bottom of Marlin. The Blue I THINK can be stretched to be an updated bluer- teal from 1993, and maybe even introduce the teal throwbacks where it doesn't really look like the mishmash of eras the Diamnondbacks have. The Redish Pink I THINK can be stretched to be an updated / more miami take on the RED ORANGE from 2012. The Silver can be a nod to the 2003- 2011 and the SIlver Marlins crest they won the WS in. All Black cap is a nod to every era of Marlins baseball. Hell, Maybe this nightlife thing is because the Marlins are finally old enough to get into a club! I like the cap and colors. It stands out and will make a difference in marketing I think. The fact it looks close to the original teal but a modern twist might help. The Blue BP mentioned before is starting to remind me of the 1993 or 1998 BP jerseys.

    Can confirm just the Marlin is raised on the official cap. Blue New Era Logo. No I won't share pictures anyone- trusted w this. However, the logo above IS the logo. All Black Cap.

    Here's the question: Are the new Marlins a Black team, or a Red and Blue team? My answer is yes.

    Another forum member asked me to post this here- not sure of context because I'm not caught up... The 1993 set lasted 10 seasons, the 2003 set lasted 9 seasons, the 2012 lasted 7 seasons. By Comparison, in that time frame the NY Mets have changed jersey styles four times by my count. The Padres have a dozen times I think (Logos and Colores) <----see what I did there? The Jays have changed 5 times (Logos, jerseys and colours) <----see what I did there? The Diamondbacks with a 5 year delay have changed 3 times. It's just sports branding these days. Teams don't want to get pigeonholed into a color scheme or look because you will never make money selling new merchandise if it looks the same as the old stuff. The Yankees, Red Sox, Cardinals and Cubs all feed off nostalgia and that drives their gate and merchandising sales. Teams like ourselves only see a spike when it's cool and new and different, like when we opened the park and the Orange was the number one selling hat in MLB for a few years. This change will bring in more revenue for the new owners, but most importantly it'll show the community that its a new ownership group. Hopefully they get their crap together so it's cool to wear the stuff because they're a winner, not just because it looks cool.

    NBA Changes 2018-19

    I lose about 8 lbs of water weight, and I used to feel it when I wore an NYPD Cotton T-shirt under my equipment and jersey. It'd hang off and feel like I was wearing a weighted vest. Since these moisture wicking tech was invented and readily available, I've switched to that. I feel like a weight LITERALLY has been lifted off my shoulders during and after a game. The fabrics are great, FOR ATHLETES. For a schmuck like me? I don't need to go to a Heat game in a $250 moisture wicking polyester shirt. I'm happy w a mesh replica for $70 (think the old Nike Swingmans)

    Loria hand picked Jeter to be his successor, heck- Jeter even toured the Stadium the year before he retired and he was rumored all along to be interested in this team. Loria coveted Jeter as an Expos owner and was willing to trade Vladimir Guerrero for him at one point, and fancied himself a Yankee fan (thats why there was a 2003 F alternate jersey). Besides, if someone is buying your team for 1.2 billion and has an idea that they want to start, you make a phone call and say "Talk to so and so, if he buys the team he'll want a new brand package- don't make any changes but get the ball rolling".

    Here me out on this... it's kind of out there... Loria started the process.... on behalf of Jeter and at his request, with Jeter's art direction and vision. If the sale fell through, it could have all just been trashed.

    I mean, it was widely assumed for a while that the new ownership group was taking over since the ASG atleast. Maybe it's possible Loria started the rebrand process and Jeter and co finished it off. I'm sure whoever bought the team could have just stopped the rebrand and kept the orange stuff if they wanted to. I got a feeling Loria got the ball rolling, and Jeter/Sherman brought it home.
