MLB Changes 2015

Recommended Posts

I'd love to see the Nats add a cream/off-white home alt that is more blue in base color than red and uses that nice script Nationals that's found its way into every aspect of the identity EXCEPT the uniform:

I wouldn't mind seeing some sort of faux-back that pays tribute to the late Washington Senators, off-white with blue pinstripes and the above script on the chest...

That actually sounds good. Like SteveR said, you saw the script everywhere this year- on a ton of merchandise, throughout the park, on the players' dugout jacket, etc. Before, you couldn't find it anywhere. I bet they are taking a look at doing something with it.

I wouldn't be surprised if they are avoiding the pinstripes because combined with the red cap, it is a very "Philles-esque" look. Looks great, nonetheless. I am still on favor of the script on the home jersey. That original prototype was awesome.

Dark blue pinstrips instead of red would be the key difference.

Sure was.

So much better than what they chose.

I came across a few interesting pictures earlier tonight.

First, here's a closeup of the new Mets caps. I'm disappointed the two alt caps are now Diamond Era exclusive. I have a feeling that's going to become a thing with all teams now. That's probably going to be a huge mess.

Second, for a bit of a throwback to something completely unrelated but totally cool I came across. Apparently, this belongs to Eric Karros, and these were hanging in the players lockers after game 6 of the 2003 NLCS...

I've always wondered why baseball scripts tend to use an "n" that's more like a print n rather than the generally-accepted cursive n which is more like a print m.

Then people would mistake them as the "Natiomals".

That's pretty interesting too, but it doesn't have the shock value of an actual Cubs World Series hat.

Do the Dodgers use the same shade of blue as the Mets ?

No. At least, not on their caps.

New Era provides two different shades of royal. The Mets (and Brewers, Blue Jays, Royals and Cubs) use the lighter one, while the Dodgers (and Rangers) use the darker one.

You can see the difference here (this is before the Cubs switched from darker royal to lighter last year):

thanks Gothamite, and i am actually a moron for asking, i could have checked myself (and just did) i got both a mets and a dodger 14ยด dugout jacket, and the difference is huge, makes me wish the dodgers would make a blue alt. jersey, would look awesome in that shade of blue, and we could compare it to the mets alt blue jersey, i of course know this belongs in the unpopular opinion tread ! :)

There is difference I see in the new cool base replicas, the outlines on the wordmarks are thicker than they were on the replicas from this year and before

heres a 2014 replica

To me the 2014 Pirates wordmark looks like it was Photoshopped on, whereas the 2015 cool base doesn't.

Yeah I agree. I'll wait till we see real photos side by side

Indeed. That seems to be a perennial problem with Majestic. I can recall one or two mistaken claims regarding uniform updates due to their bad photoshopping. It's annoying (at least to me).

The new Twins Alt hat is not Diamond Era. So maybe not all the hats will be Diamond Era, just a select few?

Not just majestic. You see it with all major pro sports leagues from time to time.

We all know it, and expect to see confirmation. Anyone who makes claims based on a photoshop gets what they deserve.

Speaking of Majestic merchandice- what's up with those gray fake holes they added to the letters and numbers on the player t shirt "shirseys"? They need to fire the people responsible for that.
