Hahaha... there's no tagged Twins cap. We're not hip enough.

Makes sense. Joe Mauer is so exciting his nickname is Joe Mauer.

The red on the Red Sox cap can be interpreted as blood, but I think it's intended to be paint. And on most of the hats, that is certainly what it resembles.

I'm sure there will be followups to this saying the hats are cool, but I think it is pretty stupid to treat your corporate logos with such disrespect.


Wow, are you serious? Relax man, it's a HAT! Don't like 'em, don't buy the products. Use your energy and time more constructively.

And besides, it's their logo, they may do with it as they please.

Surely you have better things to do than bother New Era about a hat image.

If not, send them an email from your computer that's downloaded with microsoft programs then go have some lunch at KFC. After that you can wash it down with a snickers. LOL

I'm really not a fan of the "ghettoness/gangsterness" of those designs, but I guess there's a market for them :-P I much prefer the clean style.

I applaud in10s for taking his stand on this, even if my interpretation is different than his. If people stopped holding others responsible for things such as these, but maybe not this particular circumstance, you can kiss our society as we know it goodbye. Nice job in10s. ;-D

"Ghettoness/gansterness", did not come to mind for me. More like "trailer trash"

The logo was "spray-painted" on the cap, It's not a big deal, hopefully everyone has more important things to worry about.

They are ridiculous like 90% of the new New Era hats....

I actually saw one for the Cardinals yesterday that actually had a map of around St. Louis with a star next to the city of St.Louis...with a giant Cardinals logo on the side and back.

Another Cardinal hat had the entire St.Louis skyline on the entire front of the hat...which was meant to be turned to the side CC Sabathia style. Needless to say, it was interesting.
