the good.

1_250.jpgoh how i miss the navy(not to be confussed with smurf blue) indians hat with the big Chief wahoo

You're right about the racist cartoon Chief Wahoo needing to be bigger. It's way too small on the current Indians caps. (In general, the puffy-logo era cap logos are too small. How I yearn for the return of the classic flat embroidered cap logo.)

Current Indians caps, in true navy

However, that's not navy blue in the cap you show. It's midnight blue. The current Indians caps are navy, not smurfy blue. If you want to see anything approaching smurfy blue, you have to go to KC. True navy blue is not too much darker than 50% gray, whereas midnight blue is essentially the color of black dye that's faded a bit in sunlight.

The Indians are to be praised for bucking the me-tooism of almost the entire rest of the league, which has abandoned true navy in favor of Yankeesian almost-black midnight blue. Why would any self-respecting team, especially a grand franchise like Cleveland, want to ape the Yankees? And why would teams abandon the brighter navy of the U.S. flag in favor of a shade of almost-black? Ugh.

Best. Cap. Ever.

(W/ the possible exceptions of the infinitely more traditional but classically beautiful Detroit Tigers' caps.)

And I see multiple references to my Diamondbacks' purple caps. If I were running the team, I'd drop the purple entirely and instead use black w/ copper and (sparingly little) teal trim, a la the Arizona Rattlers. But I'm not. Sux for all of us, don't it?

I for one will defend that Dodgers cap with the silver bill. I am a life long Dodgers fan and actually love and purcahsed that cap this summer. I'd love to see them make that their road cap, but that's just one man's opinion!
