I’d pay more attention to the red Braves jersey on the Swanberson bobblehead than the Los Braves bobblehead (not to say they won’t wear those on a special heritage day, but one is certainly a bigger deal in terms of a uniform “refresh” than the other).

New socks? Albies's are slightly different than the Stance socks on Fanatics. Not sure about Swanberson's.

The unevenness of the phils new logo is so bothering, 100% downgrade, the removal of the field shape left it feeling extremely left heavy due to the way the script is and the capital P, it also seems like it juts out more on the left side too, but my eyes could be playing tricks on me

 

Yea, I don't see what was wrong with the old primary. They only needed one version of it that could be used against any color, where as this they had to make 3 different versions for what color it is against.

Shouldn't the new BP caps be out soon...or at least be officially unveiled? Can't find anything on them except for the Nats one that was leaked.

 

Looks like A's stuck with the logo they floated last off season for their new BP hat, Here is their St. Patrick's Day hat...

Hopefully the ST/BP hat logo isn’t that small. 

 

The prototype hat logo was quite a bit larger.

It’s designed to match the Braves script better and it does seem to be a bit more legible, too.

 

Interestingly enough, this is the third version of this script in the last few years, considering it used to look like this:

The new Atlanta script is an improvement, but it's still awkward how the A is at a different tilt than tlanta is.  I'm not sure how to fix it, but it needs some work.

 

It's also weird how the official graphics show the lighter navy, rather than the actual midnight navy.

I wonder if the Braves set would look better without the headspoon. Replace it with three-color piping around the collar; or just leave the collar empty. The piping along the placket just seams to muddy up the wordmark and tomahawk.

No problem with these. I'm glad they didn't get rid of the tomahawk. The blue and red jerseys I could do without but whatta ya gonna do?

The Braves are a case where building a matching road script is an issue. This applies to everywhere they’ve played. Shameless self plug:

Boston is probably the easiest, with Atlanta as a close second and Milwaukee as a very distant third. While their latest attempt is the best they’ve done, it could use a little refinement in the angling of the A, the height of the “t” cross bars and the line between the “a” and “n.”

That “M” is really awkward. 

 

I think they would have been better off using the road script from the Brewers in the late 1940s, when they were briefly a Braves farm club.

Just replace the tail with the tomahawk, and it’s a great Milwaukee Braves road jersey.

I see where you’re coming from, and I disagree. I’d rather the cursive “font” match than have two noticeably different styles. Besides, the “M” has a construction that isn’t all that different from the “B” (one line for the left bar, and another for the other parts). I don’t think it’s all that awkward.

 

The American Association “M” looks too different from the Braves’ “B” to work. It’s not nearly curvy enough for my liking. It’s like how the Dodgers’ first “Los Angeles” script differed from the home wordmark:

Little differences make it a tad disjointed. If the Braves had redone their cursive script to match the AA Brewers’ road script (albeit with the tomahawk replacing the tail), then I’d be more inclined to like it.

Apologies for the double post, but I have to agree with @Gothamite now. The AA Brewers-style M, with a few adjustments to make it look more like the Atlanta "A," makes the script a heck of a lot less awkward.

Thanks, Gothamite! It just goes to show you how difficult it can be to make a road script after-the-fact, especially on a script font as fussy as the Braves' lettering.

 

Back to the point of the Braves' updates, I find it interesting that they didn't make the "715" uniforms (or a modernization of them) an alternate. Heck, they already had the perfect cap for that purpose:

It'd be a better alt cap than the lone tomahawk.
