    On a somewhat related note, I'm curious how the removal of the black will affect the sales of Reds caps in NYC and other urban centers. I'm sure it's been mentioned before by others, but not a day goes by that I don't see at least one (and often several) Reds cap on the train to work or standing outside the bodega new home. They're everywhere! Will this change with the blue? I wonder.

    Maybe sales will pick up in North Korea, Cuba and Venezuela ...

    Didn't someone suggest that the prevalence of red reds hats with the wishbone C was because of the bloods and the crips?

    I got me one of those a ways back.

    I think the navy blue replacement of black sounds good. Er, looks good. Whatever.

    Finally a cap I can wear... I'm not a fan of Red or Black caps and the Red Wings and Reds didn't have options.. hence the Mariners cap and Grey Reds cap.

    That blue up there almost looks Cubs-Esque on the unis. I don't mind the idea of getting rid of the black but I don't like the navy blue either. In fact I'd be more than happy with Red, White & Grey only.

    1902 Reds and 1911 Cubs, Cubs Navy was always a tad darker.

    I actually like the black a great deal. I'm not a fan of the Sunday all red shirts and I never cared for the plain white with red pinstripes. I found my old hat (plain white with a red C, pinstripes, and a red bill with a green underside) from the early or mid 90's and couldn't get over how ugly it was.

    Personally, I really enjoy the black. But I consider black to be like gray, or white, just a neutral color. Blue, imho, would be a bad idea. I love the look of the all black caps with the red C... such a nice, clean look.

    I don't like it...I like the black

    I like the black, agree that there is too much of it, but I like the black BP hats.

    I DO NOT like the blue. Way too much like the Cubs, and I hate the Cubs.

    Someone says it in every one of these threads, but it's true. The best Reds unis are the vintage 1970's. The one just before the "pajamas", with belts and no racing stripes. They closed out Crosley wearing those, opened up Riverfront and I would love to see them return.
