I get that most people probably won't care, but it is so sad to watch a company that was once taking pride in their craft, now settle for poorly gluing a flag on the side. These things look horrendous. I actually laughed a little at the sight of them because of how poorly they were done.


That's Mr. Snark to you sunshine.

New Era business practices bring a classic MST3K bit to mind:

Just saw some photos of the upcoming on-fields with NE Flags. I can deal with some of the on-fields with the NE logo (i don't like the change, but whatever, i'll just hang onto my caps that don't have flags), but this D-Backs one might be the worst i've seen. The flag just jumps out so much it overshadows the team logo. Looks as if somebody stuck blue gum on the side of the cap.

That looks awful. I guess, we should be happy it isn't white.

You're right, it kind of looks like a blob. This seems to be a particularly poorly done flag as you can't really make out the stripes on the right. It's basically an underlined 'n' with some random extra material next to it.

Pretty much exactly my initial reaction.

I can imagine how badly the sublimated snakeskin ones will look with the flag...
When NE said "Its not a cap, it's a flag," I suppose we should have taken them literally...

Pretty soon the flag will be huge and on the front, and the team logo will be the small logo on the side of the cap. And everyone will yell: "Don't you understand marketing and economics!?"

If they could get a away with this, they would do it.

Manfred would sign off on it too while walking away with a wheelbarrow full of cash

My Lids finally got the flagged hats in but funnily enough they put them on the very bottom shelf, found them by accident. They still have a ton of flag free stock.

Sweet red flag on that 2018 Boston cap. Much less noticeable than this year's flag. Mr. Green

And did I miss the reveal on the 'new' Mets road alt? This is from Hatland:



The outline works a lot better with the silver letters and minus the orange brim IMO. Thankfully the local Lids carries a lot of Mets caps, hopefully they have some MUSA's soon. Looking forward to checking this one out in person.

Link for the listing page and some other shots (it says it's sold out currently; I'm assume they still haven't received them): http://www.hatland.com/hats/mets-2017-onfield-alternate-2-new-era-29492/

So was at one of my local malls and I stumbled across this in the Just Sports (Pro Image Sports/Fanzz of AZ) Brewers were one of, if not the only team to not use their ST caps as their BP cap last year. Guessing this is what they'll be using this year as their BP cap. Edit: This isn't mine, picked this one up for a big brewers fan/cap collector from Milwaukee.
