Phillies 4th of July Stars and Stripes Hats Unveiled

Staying true to their threat promise that there would be three different “Stars and Stripes” hats this year, the second iteration of the program was unveiled by New Era and the MLB today. I would expect a unique jersey will be paired with it, and purely guessing, I expect they will fill the Phillies lettering with the blue field of stars from the inside of the “P.”

Across the league, it’s the same design with either a blue or red brim and a white or grey crown depending on whether they’re home or away. They look like the “ice cream man” hats from the 2010 Stars and Stripes program.

They’re ugly, but I have to give them credit for being uniquely ugly compared to the Memorial Day camouflage hats. On the bright side, at least red is one of the Phillies colors, so it’s not like the A’s who will be mixing red with their green and yellow color scheme.

For some trivia, the White Sox used a blue fill with stars pattern in their logo in 1917 for the World Series, so this is not the first time it’s been done. (and look at the flag patches…maybe related to World War I?) A closer look at the pattern here from the Hall of Fame .

  1. Probably $50 retail ..hats are ridiculously overpriced

    • i cannot believe how much hats at the store in CBP cost these days. those camouflage hats that they were on memorial day were being sold for $39.99! that is ridiculous!

  2. Uhh dan, was this lifted from big league stew without their permission? I’m like 90% sure it was.

    • Uhh Matt, Big League Stew posted theirs at 2:00ish EDT, mine was up at 10:30AM or so. That said, both Big League Stew and I credited Uni-watch which linked to New Era’s Facebook page. (And let me point out I’m not claiming my article being posted first was anything other than coincidental with respect to their article coming out later; just that we both follow Uni-watch and wanted to write it up with some additional commentary.)

  3. That Indians hat is one of the most ridiculously ironic things I’ve ever seen on the internet.

  5. Ugly. UGLY. UUUUUUUUUUUGLY!!!!

  6. Wow, this article is fastidious, my younger sister
    is analyzing such things, so I am going to let know her.

  7. actually they might be $39.99 at cbp but elsewhere they are $35.99. Stadiums mark their prices up compared to other retail stores. A stadium is basically a monopoly. EVERYTHING is marked up there because they know fans will buy memorabilia from the games.

  8. Does your blog have a contact page? I’m having a tough time locating it but, I’d like
    to send you an email. I’ve got some suggestions for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great blog and I look forward to seeing it grow over time.

  9. It’s difficult to find well-informed people for this topic, but you sound like you know what you’re talking about!
    Thanks

  10. I seldom leave a response, but i did a few searching
    and wound up here Phillies 4th of July Stars and Stripes Hats Unveiled | Crossing Broad.
    And I actually do have 2 questions for you if you do not
    mind. Is it just me or does it look like some of these remarks appear like
    written by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are posting on
    additional online sites, I would like to keep up with anything
    new you have to post. Would you list of every one
    of all your public pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin
    profile?

  11. I used to play a lot of unsupervised siafinicgnt injury risk ball when I was a kid, often with a wiffle ball or a wad of rolled-up tin foil. It was fun and a lot safer than jumping into the coal bins from a two-story roof at Consumer Coal Company or swinging out over the Eire-Lackawanna rail tracks 30 feet below from a rope, I guess. After supervision arrived, half of us couldn’t make the cut using a real baseball or were bored out of our skulls or intimidated with all the rules and coaching. At least we had winter sledding down the hill towards the wall at Villa Walsh. The trick there was to not go over the wall onto Western Ave.

  12. Wow… I didn’t even notice that. Would it have been that difficult to use the block C hat instead?
