    They look good.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    I like it! Now if they could just get Brooks, Frank, Boog, Palmer, Cuellar, and Dave McLucky back. (I always called McNally "McLucky")

    I like the cartoon bird, but the hats with the white panel on the front just seem to be too 70's cheesy to me. It just evokes too many bad memories of the awful foam + mesh hats that we'd wear in little league.
    When people say that I don’t know what I’m talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.

    I wish there was a like button to click. This is a big improvement for them.

    I'm not real fond of the white panel caps. The road cap is great!

    Thanks for posting that picture as a stand-alone item.

    I was always more of a fan of the ornithologically correct Baltimore Oriole cap.

    But the cartoon version was pretty funny perched on Earl Weaver's head.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    Very nice. I join the chorus of those that dislike the white panel caps but everything else is looking good.
