  1. Uniform/jersey misunderstandings

    I've had numerous people in Tennessee mistake my block C Indians hat for a Chicago Cubs hat. The worst part is many of them were Cubs fans and it was right after the World Series. I have the same issue when I wear Chief Wahoo sometimes with people thinking it is the Braves. When I lived in Ohio one of my favorite hats was the South Carolina Gamecocks hat with the interlocking SC logo and it said "USC" on the back. Got mistaken for a Southern Cal fan numerous times.

    The Indians Block C logo isn't very highly regarded, as shown by the 4.1 rating it gets. http://www.sportslogos.net/logos/view/5753472014/Cleveland_Indians/2014/Primary_Logo

  4. Oh yeah. Never happened when I lived in Ohio obviously. But when I moved to Tennessee I got it all the time. The best (worst?) part was after the World Series. People would say "Oh man. I bet you're happy you guys finally broke the curse, huh?" Just rubbing salt in the wound
  5. Maybe now people will actually learn the block C is for the Cleveland Indians. If I had a nickel for every time someone thought my block C hat was for the Cubs...

Would you do that with your grandfather's picture? Take it and throw it on a rug? Walk on it and dance on it?"

    We saw something similar earlier this year:

    I've dealt with them before with my authentic jerseys, very happy with them. But do they have the "tackle-twill graphic" letters like you see on the replica jerseys? That is what I was asking about, my apologizes for an unclear post. I have blank replicas, so wanted to find the same letters they use on replica jerseys for the back of the jersey, for consistency. Edit: like what these letters/numbers are in the auction below. http://www.ebay.com/itm/2015-Kenny-Lofton-Cleveland-Indians-Home-White-Cool-Base-Jersey-Mens-/391179533352?var=&hash=item5b141dfc28:m:muR7LKdVsCnVYKx9AS3U4mA

    Random question, and I didn't want to start a separate thread to ask this, but does anyone know if a place to purchase the letters & numbers used on the replica jerseys? I've got a few blank jerseys, but it seems most team stores don't customize unless the jersey is purchased through them. And I'd rather not get a replica jersey customized with the legitimate tackle-twill that you see on field, especially since the replicas have the screen-printed tackle-twill look. Any leads or information is appreciated.

    Noticed the Indians Mothers Day jersey doesn't have a Wahoo sleeve patch, but a block C sleeve patch. http://www.mlbshop.com/Cleveland_Indians_Jerseys_Authentic_-_On-Field/Mens_Cleveland_Indians_Francisco_Lindor_Majestic_White_Mothers_Day_Flex_Base_Jersey

    I honestly have no problems with the block C hat. It is kinda bland, but it is clean and isn't sore on the eyes. I just wish the logo was more linked to Cleveland on a national level. Wahoo obviously has its controversy that I don't want to get into, but when you see a Chief Wahoo hat, it immediately says Cleveland to most people. When I wear my block C hat here in Tennessee, I've had numerous people wearing Cubs championship gear come up to me and say "Go Cubs!" and put their hand up for a high-five. Not sure if they're rubbing it in my face or if they legitimately think I'm wearing a Cubs hat. And even before the World Series, I'd have random people yell "Go Cubs!" at me when wearing the block C.

    Is it their best selling? I don't live in Cleveland anymore, but I rarely saw people out and about wearing the red hat. And I've yet to meet anyone in person that has said they like that hat.

    So now the question is, do the Indians end up using the red hat at all this year?
