Too early? Not for me...especially with the possibility of this BS being "Fo' Ril":

Did I read the other day on a separate thread that the 2016 MLB season could be the beginning of the end for the classic MLB AC 5950? That the Diamond-Error is upon us? I hope this was a veteran forum user's idea of a joke(if that is indeed the case, good one: you have me going good), I really do.

Before I post my rambling rant on how I feel about DE's, does anyone have anything to add to the above rumor? Besides that, has anyone heard through official channels, word of mouth, or as far as you know - rumor only - about team uniform changes, specifically to the caps? New caps, caps being retired, et cetera.

Finally - I take it San Diego is not doing a rebrand? Just trying to kill or keep the flame alight of rumors 3-4 years old. In hindsight - the Seattle rumors from 2014 were true, cream uni's and a new cap(which was cool, but could have been a lot cooler if it had a star and an upside down trident).

Well, there is this. Now is from 2 years ago. I don't know if there is any truth to it or not. God, I hope not. I am not a fan of DEs.

I hope after this next big push of DE's when no one really buys them (again) that they just designate them to BP hats ONLY.

I agree with this. Every one of these threads seems to starts out with concerns about Diamond Era replacing current poly on fields. Until it happens, i'm not going to freak out. Even when it happens, I wont freak out. If they're all chinese, i'll just stop buying. If they're made in the USA, i'll still buy a few occasionally.

In my opinion, the energy used on the hatred and vitriol towards Diamond Era caps should be bottled up and used in regards to Chinese made caps. In my experience, chinese caps are much more of a travesty than Diamond Era material is.

Well, the only DEs I have ever seen are Chinese, so...

I get what he's saying though. I find DE's are better and much more wearable than a lot of Chinese AC's. Anyway, it sounds like more DE in '16 but not a phase out of poly yet.

Polys aren't going anywhere yet as sales on the DE's have not been very good.

New DE program that will tie it with a jersey program. It's going to be...well as I said before it's a mixed bag depending on your perspective.

At least two teams are doing tweaks/rebrands that may or may not involve new AC's, haven't heard anything on new alts etc but with nearly 30 new DE's that's where the focus will likely be.

DE's aren't selling well so NE's strategy is to flood the market with more. Classic.

So a jersey program must come from MLB then? They're actually gonna force the Yankees to wear new uniforms for the first time in 100 years?

Any clues on the tweaks/rebrands or should we just wait for details to leak after the World Series?

You've never seen any of the 2013 or 2014 4th of July stars and stripes?
