New Era recently showed off their 2013 Stars & Stripes hats worn by the 29 teams Major League Baseball teams in the U.S. (the Blue Jays have a Canada day version) on July 4. Here’s what the Orioles will be donning.
Will you be adding this hat to your collection?
Personally, I like the Memorial Day digital camo hats more this season.
I’m so sad about this. I worked at Lids when the first Stars and Stripes hats came out. They were navy blue and the Indians had Chief Wahoo on theirs. That logo looked SO cool with the flag as the coloration for him. The O’s of course used the “O’s” logo. Immediately I thought “this would be SO much better if they used the cartoon bird like the Indians did with the Chief.” For the next few seasons they continued with that logo.
Then last season they brought back the cartoon bird and I got excited thinking they were finally going to use him for this. They didn’t do one last season at all. Then they announced these and I got excited again…until they released the picture.
I really don’t like the “O’s” logo, it’s too generic. I wish they’d drop it from hats completely. It’s something any team could have. The cartoon bird is original and fun.
Imagine how slick the stars and stripes would look if it was a navy hat with a white front panel, red brim, and the cartoon bird colorized with the flag. THAT would be amazing.
Nick – I’m with you on the O’s hat. Don’t even own one.
My opinion on the O’s hats goes like this:
Home – White panel hat with cartoon bird for home white unis.
Home – black hat, orange bill with bird logo for Friday black unis and Saturday orange.
Road – Solid black hat with script “B” from uniform.
I’d be cool with that or if they even just got replaced the O’s hat with the batting practice orange panel hat with the black jerseys.
O’s need to have a Maryland Day and break this sucker out. Still waiting on the Shop to restock them. A couple weeks away according to the manager.
What shop is selling that hat? I haven’t been able to find it.
I like the Maryland flag look some how merged with the O’s hat. Maybe MGW’s script B with the Maryland flag background?
Awesome idea Willo. If they could put the flag behind the “B” might be one of the top sellers in MLB.
Any color except white and it must have a B on it…………………
Sorry guys, I can’t agree with the “B” hat. We already have Baltimore on the jerseys. The “O’s hat isn’t my favorite, but I’m not offended by it as so many people seem to be. I think it’s something that connects the team with the area seeing as a lot of locals refer to them as the “O’s.” I’d be cool with an ornithological bird hat for Fridays. But I think the “B” on the hat is too plain. Just my two cents.
keep your money………………..
My problem with the “B” hat is that another team in this division already has a “B” hat.
If you don’t know what city your team is from , your vote doesn’t count……………….
There are some teams that already have black spikes so using your analogy we should wear pink ones because no other team does,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
