We always love to see innovative New Era collaborations at NECTalk. One of our favorites of 2013 was the CFL Player Inspired Series, where eight top CFL football players were invited to New Era headquarters in Buffalo, New York, to design their own collection of caps to represent their respective CFL teams and cities. Some of our preferred pieces in the Inspired Series were designed by Toronto Argonauts Linebacker Marcus Ball, who signed with the team as a free agent in 2012 – the same year in which the Argonauts went on to win the 100th Grey Cup. In his short time in the CFL, and as a Toronto Argonaut, Marcus Ball has amassed quite an impressive list of accomplishments: he has already become a Grey Cup champion and a New Era cap designer! Also during this time, he became a father, welcoming his daughter into the world. We recently caught up with Mr. Marcus Ball, who is also an avid cap collector and “proud owner of about 100 new era caps” to See What’s On His Mind.
