MLB Hydro Dipped Helmet Concepts

14 posts in this topic

I'm actually surprised we haven't seen more of this already.  I just hope the designs are kept under control...that Nationals one takes it too far.

I clicked on the link expecting to hate every one one of them, but I don't.  They still don't belong in a Major League Baseball game, though.  The clown socks they're wearing now are bad enough.  We don't need this added.

Not a comment on the concepts themselves. That D-Backs helmet almost looks maroon/purple, which I think would be a good unique color choice for them. Sand or copper and maroon.

Going somewhat tangentially off-topic here, I know that such helmets exist in the college ranks, but what hydro-dipped helmets for pro football teams? Which teams would look best wearing such a helmet?

I'll support this as a one time thing for some promotion like Turn Ahead the Clock or something. But full-time would be too much.

The Diamondbacks one is sweet. I could see teams using this method, depending on cost, for throwback games.

The Steelers would look good in that steel design for the Pirates. Cheese design for the Packers. :D

Spring Training, go nuts.  I legit lol'd at the Padres because of course they're camo.

 

Otherwise, they look more fit for Japanese pro ball.

Anyone else a little disappointed there wasn't any racist Cleveland Indians concept?  Man, society really is getting soft.

I'd love to see the concepts for the other teams. The ones there are really well done. Not so sure I'd enjoy them in reality but as far as a conceptual article, excellent work.

 

It reminds me of an idea I had when the DBacks unveiled their new uniforms. If every team had subliminated designs on their uniforms, what would the other teams designs be?

I guess the days of the helmets looking like the caps are officially over...actually they pretty much were anyway.

 

Most of these look like bowling balls.  I kinda like that Arizona design.  But of course the whole thing will probably devolve into the Tigers and Nats ones.  I would rather these don't see the field.  However, if it were up to me, I'd say one should be used: the Astros.  It's not too loud and I think it works really, really well.

I know you're being facetious, but this will legitimately be complained about...if teams start doing this and the Braves and Indians don't go with something native-inspired, the "anti-PC" internet warriors will be right there to complain about political correctness
