    How about the striped ones the Reds wore a number of years ago.
    Rob Dibble said he felt like an ice cream man when he wore that hat. I would agree too. But you know what I bought one of those and wore it.That's exactly what they want you to do.
    I also had one of those Pirate caps. Man am I a sheep? :

    Personally, I like all of the Reds caps---even the ones that are predomintly black.

    Some other favorites:
    St. Louis. Like both caps but prefer the all red one.
    LA (and I don't mean the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim!)
    Baltimore. I just like the Oriole on the cap.
    Cleveland. Love Chief Wahooo and don't give a rat's butt about being PC.
    Yankees. What could be more classic----even if you hate the team.
    San Francisco. The interlocking initials in orange on black simply look good.

    One more thing: I love the Reds unis with the pinstripes and vest. Takes me back to when I first started following the Reds in the 50's. The 70's unis were a bad dress for the prom queen. (Translation: the best team in the land dressed as though they were trying to be dull and ordinary.)

    I found a New Era one (with the MLB logo at the back) at a Lids store in a mall in Cincinnati. I also know for a fact that you can get the all red in a more fitted version with the C-Reds logo in the back at Dick's and other places.

    As for me, I like the Reds uniforms with just a couple tweaks. First, wear the all red caps home and away. Second, the shirts under the vest jerseys should always be red. Third, every player on the team should be required to wear high red socks, like Hudson and Wagner. If the team needs color contrast on the road, my preference would be to ditch black and go back to navy blue, as the team did during the 50s and 60s (I believe). I also would get rid of the numbers on the front of the away jerseys, which just look asymmetric.

    I am a picky SOB.

    Wasn't there an all red cap giveaway about 3-4 years ago against the Dodgers, maybe? The whole black thing seemed ok when it first came out (I believe it was 1999, everything seemed ok that year) However, the black hat and road uniform kinda suck, now.

    I wish they would go back to the all red cap, and dump those stupid black sleeves on the road. Someone should tell them that they are the Cincinnati REDS.

    Since black is so cool and sells so much merchandise, I think the Reds and all teams should go with a color scheme like the cap BCubb posted -- black on black on black, with black trim.

    On the subject of black, the Kansas City Royals will be eliminating the black from their uniforms next year. Maybe that will start a new trend, one away from black.

    Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.

    Speaking of eliminating the "black," still hoping for a return of those '68-'71 era Reds uniforms.

    Maybe I have poor taste, but I love the 1950s Reds cap that was revived in the mid-90s with the Red bill and white top with red pin stripes.

    Here it is:

    That's a classic. I remember when MLB first started offering Cooperstown style caps, that was the first one I picked up.

    I had one for the longest time. I finally had to retire it. It looked a lot like Steve Kline's hats.
