More so than being another blue and red team, the Marlins have kind of stolen Arizona's alternate color scheme. Which is fine if Arizona's not going to commit to it but it'll be interesting to see how the Marlins utilize it in comparison.

I noticed this too. Different shades but very close and they work similarly as well... two bright colors creating an intensity meant to pop off a very black heavy base.

I see a Reddish-Orange...... close to the previous Orange with a bit more Red thrown in. I like it.

I've been revisiting the leaked logo image from a few weeks ago several times after the last two Twitter teaser images and the color looks much more red now than I originally perceived. In fact, I don't see much of a hint of pink at all anymore. It's clearly a red, although a somewhat bright one. Perhaps the lower quality image had many of us fooled?

What number/letter could that be? An upside down 4?

 

My guess is 7

Yeah that makes sense...I was thinking it was a white number on a black background...but it's a black number on a white jersey.

Looks like the same kind of vertical "inside" drop shadows as the soon-to-be former numbers. Shoot--may even be the same number font. Wouldn't surprise me.

 

That said...from that image, looks like we're getting white numbers on the black jerseys. So that now calls into question the "black on black" treatment several of us thought we'd be seeing. (Although we ain't seen the chest scripts yet...)

That's a white jersey - the texture of the red is the same as the black, and the white is more meshy. But you're right in that the old and new fonts could be similar.

First thing that pops into my head we’re the Miami Blue Jays!

You appear to be right I think! If that's the case, do you still think we are looking at a number? The photo is a lot more visually confusing for me now.

It’s gotta be a 2. Were looking at the top inside of it, it’s a black number on white. 

Great point above looking at the materials of it

What I don't like about this, which admittedly isn't much, is that the Marlins identity is completely forgotten.  They're going full culture/flavor, which is wonderful, but it's like...why not just rebrand?

What do you mean by that?

 

They are rebranding.  That's what new logos and new colors means.  Do you mean why don't they change the name?  Why should they? 

 

And how do you feel "the Marlins identity is completely forgotten"?  The new logo, from what we've seen, builds on the visual identity they've had all along, with the fish wrapped around the upper-right corner of the letter.   Seems more like an evolution than revolution to me.

Exactly. The black and red are both twill. That's definitely a white jersey with a black number.
