  1. They make me nostalgic for my childhood.... unfortunately I don't think they were selling this particular cap otherwise I'd be all over it.
  2. I would imagine since they are celebrating the 30th anniversary of the '89 "Why Not?" team that nearly went last to first. Confirmed by a t-shirt giveaway and former players making an appearance.
  3. So will only the players get the quality USA-made caps? Or will they make them for retail too...
  4. I'm sorry but if a flippin' feather is considered too offensive, then I don't know what the heck is 'acceptable' anymore. There has got to be some imagery that is considered respectful for the 21st century. The Spokane Indians use feathers in their logos, I say go for it.
  5. On Orioles' Twitter account, there are images of Buck Showalter wearing an all-black cap with the orange 'B' from the O's road 'Baltimore' jerseys. Has a New Era logo on the side and may be made from a different material. Could be our first look at the 2018 BP caps.
  6. Lovin' that M's hat. Also please confirm: is there a bat in the logo on the Orioles' BP cap? Or did they just recycle last year's design....
  7. My head is still spinning, all these moves are somewhat unusual. The good: The ST jerseys no longer have wacky stripes and colored panels and weirdo necklines. The bad: For teams that have new designs this year, it's as if their new alternates (such as Houston and Tampa and even Minnesota) were designed to look like BP/ST jerseys. They're not terrible but just very plain or have some design flaws. EDIT: Actually the TB one blows as a regular season alt, they failed on that one pretty bad.
  8. Of all the wildness seen in the set, the incomplete sleeve piping is driving me crazy.
  9. Who designed this, Nike and the NFL? My God, those sleeves.........
  10. That's pretty much what I've heard. It sounds like some teams are making changes that fit better with their classic look and will be ditching the gimmicks such as alt colored bills for teams that have never had them before the DE rebrand. Some teams are making somewhat natural transitions that make sense with their branding and will be different but nothing drastic. Others are gonna be total headscratchers with color placement and logo usage and will look awful. One team in particular is going to look TERRIBLE with their new BP set. Again, this is all word of mouth, but I've never known this particular source to be way off on stuff like this. So it's not just BP caps but new BP jerseys coming up as well?
  11. Just bought this a few months ago too, I feel the same way.... Love it! It's my first Ebbets cap and it is way more comfortable than any 5950 I've ever worn. Would love to see the flagship store one day. How would you guys compare the fit between this and a New Era 59FIFTY? Do the sizes fit about the same between brands? I've been so close to pulling the trigger on an EFF cap for awhile now, but hate purchasing a brand I've never tried on.The Ebbets caps are not as deep in fit which means the crown is not high like the boxy NE crowns (thank goodness) and the bill lays slightly higher up on the forehead depending on how you wear your caps. In my humble opinion, the soft, unstructured backing of the crown makes Ebbets caps softer and less tight on my forehead than NE caps. No more red lines! Their caps also feel lighter and less stiff than NE brands.

  13. What are the "R" caps on the right side of the pic? Love the font and colors.
  14. I may never go back to New Era again. I'm sick and tired of having to move earth and sky just to form each hat to my head. They're always too tight or too loose. Now, Ebbets Field Flannels is a different story. I finally buy my first cap from them and...............(wait for it).................. IT ACTUALLY FITS TRUE TO SIZE!!!!! Stunner! American made of course.
  15. Glad to hear it because I've been looking into picking up some caps from ebbets.com. Is there any other place to get their hats? I thought the selection would've been a little bigger to be honest.
  16. This made me laugh, I think it's a fantastic idea. 'Fake' jerseys look so bad that I lean over to my girlfriend at every sporting event and point out each single one that I see, either because I can't resist or I want her to know what a real jersey looks like in case she buys me one. Can't people tell when the numbers, logos, and/or colors are off like that?? If you buy a jersey, do it right! Even a replica is fine for God's sake
