    My prediction is the back stripe makes it too busy and it is dropped.

    Philadelphia Phillies Retro Cap Returns as Alternate in 2019

    I bought a swirly P cap last season from MLB shop and it does not have a batterman.

    Miami Marlins 2019 Rebrand

    That’s the thing, I don’t think they need to be defended that much. The people offended by these slogans aren’t the intended audience.

    Miami Marlins 2019 Rebrand

    BFIB and the Cardinal Way have been marketing tools towards the Cardinals fan base more than a proclamation towards the rest of baseball. If you go to a game at Busch, you’ll see the Cardinals calling their fans in attendance the best in baseball. Most teams across all sports claim this distinction (especially when they are winning). The Cardinal Way is more of a draw on the team’s history especially in regards to hustling and defense. As of late, some factions of the fan base have used it against Cardinals management to express their distastisfaction with the team’s performance. As a Cardinals fan I realize that after the Yankees, the Cardinals may be the most disliked team by other fan bases in baseball. Continue to dislike them if you want to, but these slogans have been developed more towards Cardinals fans than anything else.

    Minor detail, but I appreciate the fact they used the correct trophies.
  6. I’d like to get a Cardinals dugout jacket, but I want it to say Cardinals and not St. Louis across the chest.

    Miami Marlins 2019 Rebrand

    I got my new Marlins 5950 in the mail today. The body of the Marlin above the M is raised embroidery, but the tail is not. One detail I hadn’t noticed until I saw that hat up close is the bottom of the Marlin, the mouth, and the bottom of the tail are outlined in gray. The underbrim of my hat is black unlike the gray posted above. I thought the red outline on the hat might look more red/orange, but it’s definitely red. Overall, I really like the hat.

    Arena Rafters & Banners

    Low hanging fruit, but the Cardinals have 42 retired for Bruce Sutter and Jackie Robinson. Can the same be said for the Yankees with Mo?

    I was born in the 80s but did not become aware of baseball until shortly after the swirly P look was put away. With that said, this look needs to come back and be the primary again. Not only would the Phillies have a shade of red (or whichever color you prefer) all to their own, the current Phils look outside the number font and sleeve numbers is so generic. The Phillies could really have a look all their own again.

    Uniforms you're most thankful for

    I don’t know how the Blue Jays ever move away from this. It is a fairly perfect uniform set IMO.

    How long ago? Looks like it’s a Rawlings made jersey.

    IMO, this uniform was great and severely under appreciated.

    Powder blue merchandise has been seen a lot more the last few years with Majestic’s Cooperstown line. The fact it was introduced doesn’t surprise me, and Cards fans are suckers for nostalgia. Even when it is a butchered version aiming for their wallet.

    NBA Changes 2018-19

    I only come to this thread to hate read about NBA uniforms. Nike has ruined the NBA for me.

    Cleveland Indians Unveil New Uniform, Cap for 2019

    The Rangers do it and sure the Astros had the state of Texas at one time. Nothing would be stopping the Reds from incorporating something. i looked at the Cleveland flag, and while it is RWB too, it is pretty boring as it looks too much like France.

    Cleveland Indians Unveil New Uniform, Cap for 2019

    The Ohio flag is RWB (and kinda unique). The Indians should make that the Wahoo replacing sleeve patch in 2020.

    Old school --lower case, non-caps in branding

    Not old school, but my alma mater came to mind. Terrible logo, but I can’t imagine them changing the e.

    That doesn’t make this good. If the Yankees keep their NY caps and the pinstripes, should they start putting Yankees across the chest? You can say the Cardinals uniform isn’t at the same level as the Yankees (I’m not trying to argue that), but the Cardinals used to be above these kind of gimmicks.

    The headspoon doesn’t help. It’s a money grabbing mashup and a bad one at that.

    As a Cards fan... Bill DeWitt III loves to talk about the Cardinals legacy and tradition while continuing to cheapen the brand to make a few extra bucks.

    I keep hoping the Diamondbacks will embrace their teal accented home and road uniforms as the full-time option and dump the red/black snakeskin.

    I think this identity has some room to grow without a full rebrand. I second the calls for a cap with a blue bill or a blue crown (my personal choice), and when you look at 2018 the Marlins gave a blue cap a test run with the player weekend uniforms. I think overtime the blue and red can be let out more on the script and give the uniforms more of a neon light appearance. I wonder if the team went conservative at the beginning to gauge reaction with the room to make tweaks later. On a another note, good-bye Marlins 2012-18 road gray uniforms. You were under appreciated and perhaps underrated. The white Miami script was unique to MLB at the time and a great look.

    I know what the next addition to my cap collection will be.
