From a Phillies fan....

1. Yankees......do not like them and would never wear one, but it is an icon and a classic. Logo recognized worldwide

2. Cardinals red and white.......beautiful colors combo, lettering is perfect, classic

3. Detroit tigers......tradition, plain and simple....no reason to change anything

4. Pittsburgh.....colors and logo just represent the city very well

5. Chicago Cubs......not sure why, it just is


And now the worst, in my opinion


Marlins......no comments necessary

Brewers.....Miller Lite anybody?

Texas....colors give me a headache and the drop shadow is too much

Toronto....too many colors on the bird

I can't stand the Phillies hat because the color of the button is wrong....it should be white!

Braves......the A is off center and it makes me dizzy to wear it

You mean you actually tolerate the Dbacks red home/road caps?

Top 5
1. New York Yankees (just a classic plus they're my favorite team. Funny thing is it's my top overall cap yet I don't even own it. This is because I kinda like to be different with my caps and there are A LOT of people with it. I have the SWB Yankees on-field instead and I always get compliments on it.)
2. Baltimore Orioles (new bird logo home and away)
3. St. Louis Cardinals (bird on the bat)
4. Toronto Blue Jays (I really just love the new logo, especially compared to what it was previously)
5. Milwaukee Brewers (Alternate with the MB glove logo)

Bottom 5
1. San Diego Padres (olive color, need I say more?)
2. Miami Marlins (only the all orange one, that's just not a color a cap should be. I actually like the black cap)
3. Houston Astros (same explanation as Miami)
4. Pittsburgh Pirates (Yellow crown, black brim. I just don't like that yellow)
5. Cleveland Indians (block C home or away)

awesome thread paandy!..going to be a really good topic..im sure there will be many arguments/debates haha

my top 5

1. mets classic blue and orange....not just cause they are my team..i really love the cap

2. blue-jays...big fan of the logo and the colors

3. o's home cap...i grew up with that logo..black and orange is a great color combo

4. dodgers...the cap just reminds me of summer time for some reason

5. rangers red cap...just something about it

i could def. add a coupe more to this list haha




my least favorite 5


1. mariners all navy home cap...its just boring to me

2. d-backs home...just not a fan (big fan of the alt. black cap tho)

3. indians alt. home red with navy C....think its kind of weak (i do like the navy with red C alot)

4. padres home cap...its boring,they could do much better..bring back the navy and orange...i will admit its better than the navy with silver logo..one of my least favorites. i am a big fan of the alt. olive color cap they wear with the camo,really like those

5.nationals home all red....i see it everyday i hate it

i love this thread idea. I'm gonna come at this from the point of view of strict logo design / colorway. I tried not to let fandom factor in. (I deliberately didn't pick my team)

Top 5: (1 being best)
1. RedSox (something about that font is just classic Baseball - and it's red / white & blue)
2. Blue Jays (great colorway and logo design)
3. White Sox (B&W & just looks like a mean cap design to me - like you wouldn't mess with that team)
4. Cleveland Indians (Chief Wahoo)
5. Kansas City Royals (Classic colorway - under appreciated simplicity)

Example:

I feel like the reason that NY is more popular than KC for instance or NY (mets) is just because of all the success associated with the Yankees. If you take all that away, and just talk logos, colorways, design, then its a different take. If you really look at the Yankees cap, it is a scrawled N and Y and not even symmetrical on either side. Even the line-weight varies as is meanders around. I have really never seen a logo like it. The love for the logo is really all tied to the history...that's why it is off my list.

Bottom 5: (1 being worst)
1. Rockies (purple and black with no interesting font)
2. Nationals ("W" looks like a Walgreens - I can't unsee that)
3. TB (same problem, TB looks like a detergent font - their throwbacks don't help)
4. Cubs (font a little too simple for me - the shade of blue a little boring)
5. Dodgers (LA in block letters just kinda rudimentary / boring - i love the script Dodgers on the front of the jerseys, though)

Definitely enjoying reading the responses......and the reasons and explanations.

My favorite so far is the TB hat is disliked because it reminds someone of a detergent box!

lmao

I can only think of the hats I don't like

1. Texas (both) I love the rangers but I wish they would do something else, maybe an alt with a mascot or something. The T's are so plain to me.
2. The tampa bay rays for the same reason, so plain.
3. Miami marlins: there was so much hype around the new unis and everything and the logo itself is so simple and then they add 4 or 5 colors to it.
4. Cleveland indians: I wish it was the darker navy and the bigger wahoo but we aren't gonna get into that.
5. Diamond era hats... I know a lot of you don't agree with me but I just don't like how they look

Top 5.....

1. Los Angels Dodgers -iconic classic cap. Doesnt hurt that I am a Dodgers fan.
2. Toronto Blue Jays -Best rebrand that I can remember.
3. Baltimore Orioles home -What can I say. I'm a sucker for the neo-retro white panel.
4. New York Yankees -Hate the team but, gotta give it up for another iconic classic.
5. Arizona Diamondbacks Saturday alt. -I have always loved the "A" and to me it just works with their new color scheme.

Worst 5.....

5. Milwaukee Brewers -Never liked it. Hate the wheat underscore on it for some reason.
4. Atlanta Braves solid navy -Braves should always wear the red brim.
3. Cleveland Indians both caps with small Chief Wahoo -When they switched from the dark navy to the horrible light navy and shrunk the Chief about 50% it went from one of the best all time caps to IMO one of the worst. The bitterness gives it this honor.
2. Pittsburgh Pirates retro alt. -Those that dig this cap are either Pirates fans or have never had kids. That mustardy yellow color shows up in my baby's diaper on a daily basis. I understand the history of it but, no need to wear a baby crap colored hat on my head.
1. Tampa Bay Rays -What a snooze fest of a cap. I think I disike this cap so much because it could be so much more and its not.

Best

1. A's home
2. White Sox
3. Brewers alt. (glove mb)
4. Cardinals home
5. A's road

Worst

1. Padres (any of the current) They could do so much better with the interlocking SD but choose not to.
2. Angel (boring)
3. Brewers (home reg.)
4. Mariners (home) just too boring, should wear teal brimmed hat more.
5. Yankees - I know it's a classic but I put it on here because I'm sick of it and I wanted to rate it different from what others have.
