    I'm getting antsy myself. The last I heard they were working on the final product. The mock-ups they've sent me look very promising. You'll know when I know.

          It appears to me that the Dodgers tried to add some elegance to their cap logo, kind of like the effect that you'd see with a wrought iron decoration on a railing or fence.

          It might be that it wasn't the Dodgers intention to vary from the original, but the manufacturer screwed up when they made up an order.

          I remember years ago seeing imperfections in uniforms that you are less likely to see today. I remember for instance teams having players with different fonts for the numbers on the back. In those days I think ball clubs were more likely to let these things go.

            If that's what is going on the new caps, I'm sold.

            (minus the target thingy but I'm sure that's for their purposes.)

            How are we (or they, or whoever) going to resolve the question of color?

              This isn't quite right. The "8" part needs to be thicker.

              Closer than most, though.

                  That was EXACTLY my opinion, which I told them right away.

                    That will be the final hurdle once the "B" is settled. I'm leaning toward a darker blue than most of the caps being sold today.

                        I'd go a shade or two darker. There's plenty of color pictures to peruse.

                        • Yeah, I'd go with something closer to what LA wears than what the Mets wear:

                          • I think if you look through all the pictures hosted in this very forum of the Brooks in color you can get a fair idea of the color you should be using.

                            • My strong suggestion(s) will be towards the darker blue used in 1940's Brooklyn. I will try to make sure they don't get the "B" correct, and then mess up the hue of blue.

                              • It won't mean much if they don't get the cut of the cap correct; it should be period authentic. It should also have a soft crown like the ballcap.com recreations of hats from that era.

                                And it should be made in the U.S.A.
