MLB changes 2018?

Recommended Posts

I walked into lids today, planning on buying a BP cap. 

 

Walked out without one, that material feels like my NFL polos. Also seems smaller than regular hats.

Yeah I did the same thing...the material will take some time to get used to.  It reminded me almost of board shorts (edit - the material is pretty close to a cycling hat)...plus the rubber logos are more or less matte (as opposed to the shiny logos used for the NFL), which is kind of weird.

It's weird, because I LOVE the diamond era materials. 

 

Yeah, just isn't comfortable. Almost wished they would have went with Shiny, but matte is common for MLB soo.

So, apparently the Giants decided to redesign their BP caps and they won't have them out until sometime early next year. Good, because those orange and white caps looked terrible.

So we're going to see these in a BUNCH of different variations I suppose. 

 

I wonder if this may may mark the beginning of an eventual switch to this type of material/logo treatment for the authentics as well. If so, I hope they at least keep some of the production stateside. The DE BP caps were pretty terrible, but the biggest issue stemmed from them being almost exclusively Chinese made. I got ahold of a few of the MUSA DE caps and they're actually terrific caps. I could live with a switch like this if they remain MUSA.

The "white" cap was gray.  I thought it looked better than the orange cap.

I actually picked up a new A's BP cap, and I love it. The material felt a little weird at first, but then I put it on my head and fell in love. Fits nicely, feels good in my head, and I have to say, I love the plastic logos.

I had the opposite reaction.   I went in today to buy one for a friend, and walked out of the shop in disgust.  It’s horribly cheap-looking and feeling.

Here’s a good look up close at the details of these caps. Curious to see these in person. Not sure how I feel about them yet. Could see myself both loving them if they’re lightweight and breathable or hate them if they look cheap.

In a vacuum, it's a nice hat. But as an on field product... Yikes.

Anyone up for golf?

 

This rubberish material for the patches?  I'm kinda into them.  Not because I think they look good on the cap, but because they look pretty hardy and will long outlast the cap, with a number of possible applications once the cap is done, or even if you just want to rip them off now.

That bird logo looks better than solid letters like the Brewers.  Still mad that the Brew Crew skipped the chance to have a Barrelman cap; I’d be willing to overlook the cheap material.

The Rockies posted that on Twitter and claimed it was a Rockies Dugout Store exclusive. It will never see the field.
