These were so bad, that New Era only put the area code 813 on the Rays cap.  813 isn't even where they play, they play in 727.  Not discounting the gact that some hats had multiple area codes, and they totally miff the actual area code for St Pete.


Many area codes have trademark issues. Anheuser-Busch filed for a bunch of them back when they bought Goose Island Brewing. Seemed like they were gonna spin 312 into other cities, but I don’t think they ever did.

 

And, as mentioned before, small brands often latch onto area codes as well, which is probably why Pittsburgh doesn’t have a 412 (or any other area code) on its cap.

That's actually a really good point, and really interesting re: trademark issues with area codes.

 

It's also another of the many reasons why this entire New Era concept was a terrible idea.

Glad they put a cheese wheel front and (off) center on the Brewers hat to represent the abundant dairy farms in Milwaukee County/414. 🙄

 

It's like they did the opposite with the Brewers. They only put the area code where the team plays, but most of the patches are things that are better associated with other parts of Wisconsin.

Yeah, it's like they saw the word Tampa and decided to only put the Tampa-specific area code. Which, btw, is getting a new area code next year, 656. If it were done properly the hat would have 727, 813, 941, 863 and mayyyybe 352 on it.

These hats just look like example hats a shady custom hat kiosk in a mall would have.

They left out 609 and the other South Jersey one(s), which are closer than some of the 484s and 610s.

 

LOL "Philadelphia Philly"?  This is the worst legitimately-marketed cap I've ever seen.

The concept and overall design of these hats were obviously destined to fail from the beginning, but the cartoony looking clip art elements are what truly push this over the edge into unprecedented awfulness. The food items, such as tacos, pierogi, and pizza slices look comically bad. The steel beam on the Pirates hat is another example. The design of those patches is especially unsightly.

 

While I loathe the idea of a hat with just a lot of random garbage plastered to it, the zip codes, World Series patches, and cursive writing don't look bad as individual elements.

New Era has released other caps with these elements already on them. It seems like they were added her just t take up some of the space.

I don't think that any team's pullover looked better than the button-down it replaced or that succeeded it.

 

This is the best Reds uniform

There have been hundreds of just-absolutely-hideous fashion caps from New Era over the last decade or so, but it's rare to see something mocked this badly. 

 

Maybe they'll get the hint that no one likes hats that look like garbage.

There's probably no use trying to figure out any of this but anyone have any idea of the logic behind choosing the World Series patches on the side of a lot of the caps? Why certain years were chosen over others with teams that have multiple championships?

I've lived in the Baltimore area on-and-off for over 25 years, and while I know not everyone would like that cap, there is a large segment of the population here that would absolutely love it.  If you're from Baltimore, you've got to know the type of people I'm talking about.  The "Baltimorons," if you will.

Not this one.  Edgar Allen Poe?  No idea what's on the right side, but it can't be good.  You can see them all if you have a subscription to the Athletic.  https://theathletic.com/2612864/2021/05/26/a-memorial-for-the-now-legendary-new-era-local-market-caps-gone-too-soon/

They are things of beauty.

 

But I still can't choose between them and the Robinson/Larkins.

But the Reds have a mild identity crisis.   Their whole thing is based around old-timey baseball given their history, but their most legendary run is arguably in a sleek futuristic look in a spaceship of a ballpark.

They're also largely on Twitter. 

 

All caps have the city name, city nickname, and the patch from the team's latest world series win.   Although... they've chosen a different one for some teams.   I don't know if it's semi-random, or if they chose the most important culturally.   The Royals have 1985, their first.   It appears the Yankees have 1996, which is a beloved year for the team.   The Indians have 1920, and I'm not sure why.
