    Here's another cap logo variation. It's Don Kaiser, who was traded to the Braves after the 1957 but didn't apparently actually play a game.

    Look at the M on the cap they gave him - don't think I've seen this one before.

      That's new to me, too. Looks almost like a Greek letter.

      I don't know if anybody noticed it, but the Braves sported the 1948 uniforms last week in a game at Wrigley. Tim Hudson looked like he'd fit right in as part of the rotation with Warren and Johnny.

        Yeah, it's a beautiful uniform. The black tomahawk is so much better than red.

        And love the socks.

          I prefer the red tomahawk, but I love those socks. The Braves wore them for a while with the regular uniform a few years ago. Mike Remlinger was happy as a clam in them but Chipper wasn't, so...

            So... couple more years, and they can bring them back?

              Hopefully more than a couple

              The main thing I like about those unis is that they read "Braves", just like the home whites, rather than "Atlanta." I always liked the Dodgers roadies when they were just gray versions of the home ones. I like the way that sort of says "Yeah, we're _______. Everybody knows who we are."

                Hmm. I have exactly the opposite reaction. I really hate it when teans are ashamed to wear their city's name across their chest, which is how it always appears to me.

                  For me, that all depends on the city. "Los Angeles" and "Milwaukee" are too long to fit comfortably across a non-Adam Dunn size chest. I love the Tigers current road uniforms. Their returning to that classic Greenberg-era flowing script was an excellent move.

                    Sorry, I can't agree. Both "San Francisco" and "Pittsburgh" are longer than either of those, but they look great across the jerseys.

                    I think both "Milwaukee" and "Los Angeles" can also look great, even on relatively average-sized guys.

                      This is more about the Atlanta Braves, but as long as we're talking about the various cap logos, check out this promo shot of Frank Thomas wearing an Atlanta Braves cap in the same block style as the club wore in Boston and Milwaukee. Obviously before they had settled on a design (maybe an airbrushed 1965 card?).

                      The irony is that Thomas was released a week before the season started, and never played a game for the Atlanta Braves.

                        Here's another one, with Topps guessing what the new Milwaukee Braves' logo might be.

                        Love the upside-down W:

                          Here's a great team picture of the 1954 Braves.

                          They call me Mr. Baseball. Not because of my love for the game; because of all the stitches in my head.
