  • Brooklyn cap history

    I have an article up on Uni Watch today about the cap history of the Brooklyn Dodgers.

    http://www.uniwatchblog.com/2011/05/...ooklyn-part-i/

    It's part one of a two-part series focusing on the history of Brooklyn lids. Part 2 will be about modern reproductions, and how nobody can get them right.

    Stop by, check it out - would love to get your comments! You don't need to register to post, and we'd love to hear what True Blue Brooks fans have to say!

    I thought the entry was brilliant and accurate. The Braves did use that "B" design (pre-1956) on occasion both on the blouses and the caps, but the majority of the time it was the Brooks who were identified with it.

    It's a pity that no manufacturer seems willing or able to give the cap a try, and that New Era's replica is really just the current (and in my mind, garish) cap logo.

    The Yankees made subtle but real changes in their cap logos after the early 1940's, and the New York Giants made a significant change beginning in 1949.

    Congratuations on a great effort! (and I wasn't a Dodger fan).
