Are the Giants BP hats and jerseys going to be available by FanFest?


Not sure about jerseys, hopefully BP hats will be available. I have a feeling that MLB will officially announce everything on Monday, in regards to Spring Training merchandise, & BP caps.

Those powder blue M's jerseys look ok but derivative of the current Rays alt. Would work much better if they went back to royal blue as their primary color. Cap is poor IMO. That font looks like clip art when it isn't arched like on the jersey. Reminds me a bit of the nineties Brewers cap logos and I didn't like those either.

I've said it before but they should just go back to their mid-nineties set. They've never improved on those and in some ways they've actually regressed.

I really like the look of the new Mariners BP cap. Like others on here, I have been frustrated by New Era of late but this is a hat I am looking forward to. I also hope there are some other cool new designs once the remainder of the BP caps are released.

Retail is $39.99.

Laughable considering the cheap material they are using. Worth $10 tops.

I went to Astros Fan Fest yesterday and they had tons of the old Pro Light BP hats at $20 and i'd really didn't see too many selling. Looking forward to see what these new hats are like in person. It is all coming down to the fit of these hats as the material looks to be ok.

An update for those looking for low crown burgundy Phils caps: I've now gone to 4 Philly metro area Lids (including the Lids Locker Room that has a relatively good selection of low crowns) and none are carrying either the regular or low crown version of the cap yet. Will be sure to let you guys know if I ever find any.

That's a cool one. The A's always have good looks. So I guess the full release should be Monday at the latest then.

Announced yesterday, the tigers smaller D is back
https://www.freep.com/story/sports/mlb/tigers/2019/02/01/detroit-tigers-hats-olde-english-d/2744135002/

Although, they are vague about the exact size. Sounds like it may not be as small as the norm, but not oversized. Money play.

Great news! I was not a fan of the enlarged logo and never got used to it.

I like how they got the worst advice ever and are changing it up quickly.

Quote:
It was years of that research which prompted last year’s change — enlarging the logo — in the first place: in recent years, in accordance with feedback from a younger generation of fans, teams have trended toward bigger logos on their game caps.


It took a mere 4-5 months of sales to realize their mistake.

No team in the past five years, except the Marlins and tigers have trended to bigger. And then your Marlins get smaller last year. So the tigers remained the largest logo in the league. Worst team of marketing professionals ever. Glad they were quick to change it up though.
