You guys tell me if I'm picking at straws here.... buuuuuuuuuuuuuuut  July 4th is for the Declaration of Independence.....  "We The People" is the Constitution.     I can already see someone saying its just an America thing don't take it so literally.. but i think its much more likely everyone just didn't know the difference.

Note the Jackie Robinson right-sleeve patch, and the ribbons for Mothers Day and Fathers Day

Probably the league felt the jerseys were too much for Mother's Day and Father's Day?

No, you raise a very good point.

If we really want to split hairs, July 4th is an American holiday.  A case could be made for the Blue Jays not participating (at least if they're playing at home).  However, it's safe to say that will not happen.

Now to get all the olive drab out of Memorial Day. Baseball players aren't The Troops. It's ugly and stupid.

Why do you hate our troops?  Are you anti-American?  Do you want us to lose?

That’s almost certainly true.  People already don’t know the difference between Veterans Day and Memorial Day (and treat both as a celebration of active-duty military).

I agree with you, although 'When in the course of human events" wouldn't really fit on the underside of the bill.  ;)

"1776" in a patriotic/colonial font wouldn't be a bad alternative for the underbrim.

It's not like there isn't already really distinctive iconography around signing the Declaration of Independence.

Or lay this over the American flag:

I think it's ignorance, not a conscious choice, that led to "We the People".  Although seeing that on a cap reminds me of what a missed opportunity it is, that the Nats don't use that distinctive "W" as their cap logo.

original comment retracted, as I realized I misread. The W in We the People on a red hat with a navy outline? And maybe incorporate "parchment khaki" into the design? Yeah, that'd be pretty cool.

What about John Hancock's signature on the visor? Or would that potentially be construed as an unintentional advertisement for John Hancock Financial?

Sure, you could put these on the underbrim.

But I still think the top of the document would be better.

Or even the top portion of the later printings, with "unanimous" and the blackletter type:
