  1. That was a one-off for Opening Day at SunTrust Park in 2017. Pretty sure the team auctioned off the helmets.
  2. Agreed. I suspect minor changes to the existing uniforms. While the promo schedule seems to confirm a return of the red jersey (albeit with slightly different piping), more changes are afoot. We'll know in two days!
  3. I think it's worth noting that major retailers are out of almost every size of Braves' authentic on-field jerseys. This includes the home whites, creams, and navy alts. The road grey is nonexistent. A few larger sizes are still hanging around, but that's it. Plenty of sizes for other teams' authentic jerseys, but not Atlanta. Plenty of replica jerseys, but NOT authentics, which leads me to believe "refresh" means all the jerseys are changing. The Braves all but stopped selling the road grey jersey in the team store last year. Take this with a grain of salt, but apparently a team store employee told a fan they were unavailable because the team was changing the road jersey. Some Braves' bloggers speculate there might be a 60s road grey fauxback, similar to the creams. Before the move to SunTrust, I would've said they were eliminating the tomahawk, but they've doubled down on it since moving into their new digs. They have a former player/coach/celebrity do a ceremonial tomahawk chop before every game, added the tomahawk BP cap a couple years ago, etc. It isn't going anywhere, even with the changes in Cleveland. If I had to guess, all four current jerseys in use (they've retired the red "stars & stripes" jersey) are getting a face lift and they're added a brand new alt of some kind.
  4. Not that this means anything post-holidays, but the MLB Shop is out of most authentic Braves jerseys. A few bigger sizes remain of the home white and cream alt, but nothing else. Again, it’s MLB Shop and they’re often out of or don’t carry a team’s full slate of jerseys, but it could mean a full “refresh” is happening.
  5. I love that the Nats instantly improved their home uniforms....for spring training. Wonder how long it takes for them to start wearing this during the regular season?
  6. As shocking as this may seem, next year marks 25 years since MLB celebrated 125 years with jersey patches and those nifty hat pins. Anyone think they'll do the same for 150 next year or worry that the anniversary patches are cursed (thanks to the '94 strike)?
  7. The stripes on the back of the socks is the flag of Washington, D.C.
  8. Love the pinwheel caps. A great nod to the Expos and definitely the best ASG game cap MLB's done since they swapped the traditional game cap with ASG patch for a ASG-specific design. With that said, the BP caps are terrible.
  9. Thanks for the update. Haven't seen the style guide, so I wasn't aware of any changes. I wonder if they're planning bigger changes when UA takes over in 2020 and are slowly but surely phasing out some of their current options? I assume they won't change their home whites, but you never know these days...
  10. It wasn't. There were no changes to the jersey the following season, either to the material, the logo. Nothing. I was flabbergasted. I just think they ordered a ton of on-field road jerseys and they didn't sell. Anyways. I don't doubt people's reports about the Braves' ditching their current road jerseys, but in terms of merch sales, it always seems to be the step child to the rest of their jerseys.
  11. I'll take it with a pretty big grain of salt. I thought this was the case a few years ago when I walked into the team store and grabbed an authentic, on-field Cool Base road grey jersey for $99. It wasn't a closeout due to the switch over to Flex Base (this was still at least 2 or 3 seasons before the switch). I'm more curious to find out why the Braves have yet to wear their weekend cream fauxbacks, despite having two weekend series at home thus far. I wonder if bigger uni changes are coming?
  12. Kennesaw State joining the "grey for grey sake" crowd. Neat helmets though. http://ksuowls.com/news/2017/10/2/football-fb-owls-unveil-new-gray-jersey-for-saturdays-game.aspx
  13. I'm going to assume we won't see a ton of changes to jerseys in 2018, with UA poised to take over in 2019. New ST/BP hats are a thing, but from what I've heard they're NOT the meshy junk used for the HR Derby.
  14. Could be very much alone on this, but the Postseason patches for this year are really solid. Definitely the best since they started doing Postseason specific on-field caps. http://www.mlbshop.com/Washington_Nationals_Gear/Mens_Washington_Nationals_New_Era_Red_2017_Postseason_Side_Patch_59FIFTY_Fitted_Hat
  15. If they shrunk the "a" a bit on the caps, I wouldn't mind it as an alternate cap. The one they use on the spring training cap is just too big.
  16. From what I've read, they're added the New Era flag and ditching the NL/AL sublimated logos. So they may not be changing all that much.
  17. Yeah, and I heard they're gonna replace the Stargell stars with New Era logos!
  18. I wonder how many teams will actually wear these for BP versus dads wearing these to coach little league next spring? I'm leaning towards more of the latter...
  19. A quick look at South Carolina's home baseball unis and they're fairly standard pinstripe set. Ditto for the rest of their current lineup. Still several years to go, but while I'm sure a few changes will happen, it might be no different for some teams than when Majestic took over in 2005. I assume the classic teams will remain the same (perhaps a change in the material), but nothing outrageously different from what we see now.
  20. More info on the rumored UA/Fanatics deal. http://www.sportsbusinessdaily.com/Daily/Issues/2016/10/17/Marketing-and-Sponsorship/Under-Armour.aspx
  21. Braves GM John Coppolella did an AMA on Twitter earlier. Posed a question about new uniforms and didn't get a response. I am absolutely convinced the Braves are getting new uniforms next season. They ditched the tomahawk on their special event unis this season (Mother's/Father's Day, 4th of July) for no reason. Can't tell me it was easier for Majestic to skip it, because they were just about the only team to ditch a major part of their uni design for the speciality unis. Seems likely a change is coming.
  22. Eh. There would be nothing to see if they didn't put up a building or two. You're 10+ miles from downtown with no clear line of sight to the skyline.
  23. Any Pirates player who doesn't wear their pants hiked up while wearing this uni deserves to be flogged. If you're gonna wear 70s style uniforms, do it right, or stay home.
  24. The Rays are in the top half of MLB in terms of TV ratings. They play in a silo in a place that's hard to get from a huge chunk of the TB region. http://www.raysindex.com/2015/06/tampa-bay-rays-attendance-tv-ratings.html
