New Marlins Uniforms?

I would buy that cap in a heartbeat.

I doubt people will dish out $35 to $40 for that. Saying you'll buy and actually do it.....time will tell. The ONLY way this crappy logo catches on is if the Marlins pay a few hiphop artists to wear them so it becomes "cool", regardless of how horrible that logo and cap are.

At first I didn't know what to think, kind of a WTF thing. But it has really started growing on me, I like it a lot. It really fits with Miami's vibe, it's colorful (rare these days in baseball), simple and iconic. I like it a lot even if it does kind of look better suited for a resort then a baseball team.

That cap's pretty neat actually. Yeah, it's got kind of a pseudo-80s/early 90s vibe, but that seems perfect for Miami to me for some reason.

That's what's funny on this forum though. Most that say it's "Miami" aren't from there. Yes, it IS "Miami" when it was the 80's, but this is 2K and it doesn't truly reflect the current culture there or Ft Lauderdale. I lived in southern fl from 97-01 and then just north of Miami from 06-08 and times have greatly changed. IMO, it just seems: A) The designers aren't from the area. B ) The owner is stuck in time. C) Both A and B.

I don't think I've ever hated a logo and idea this badly ever...I'm developing a passion of hatred for this, WTF. lol

The more I see the cap logo and the script concepts the more excited I am about this. The 80s look is cliche but the abstract sunset is winner. The cap would look better without the marlin on it.

I would have loved something along the lines of a modernized Miami Marlins set, but it would have clashed in a modern ballpark.

I have heard this from a lot of people. The art deco style itself is contained In a small area on South Beach. All the new high rises are very modern designs with blue or green glass. The new ballpark is very much in line with this style.

If they made a version of the swoosh marlin around a letter F instead of an M, it would look like this...

Agreed. Big time FAIL. I'm a Marlins fan since day one and enjoyed the teal & black. It is unique in baseball while giving a classy nod to the tropicall Miami flare. This proposed logo is a leftover from miami 80's art deco. I despise having an art collector as an owner.

I'm with you on this man.

It's funny how on a black background this logo looks so much better.

People already do for fashion caps that are MUCH gaudier. Take a look around at what kinds of caps are being worn these days....

This cap will sell.
