The MLB Shop is now selling the Phillies new 2010 Stars and Stripes hat.  Despite its appearance, it was not designed in 1990, but like previous years, it will presumably be worn on field on Memorial Day, over 4th of July Weekend, and on September 11th.

This year, the Stars and Stripes hats are white with a red brim.  [back view here]  These might work well with the home white jerseys, but since the Phils are on the road for all of the aforementioned dates, the Phillies will be wearing these exclusively with grey.  Uhh.  The hat itself isn't that bad, but MLB needs to revamp the design for next year, you can only force old faithful's colors into so many uniform designs.  Just imagine how the Giants will look with this hat.  Vomit. 

MLB debuted the hats in blue in 2008, and they were actually cool.  The navy blue worked very well with the Phillies uniforms, and the hats were constantly sold out on their website.  Last year the hats were red and didn't have the same pop.  Blue blends well with more colors than red, so for teams like the Mariners, last year's hats were frightening.

I actually worked for the MLB Shop, and while the blue hats in 2008 were constantly on backorder, we couldn't think of a clever enough way to get rid of the red ones.  You see, New Era wouldn't allow us to discount the hats, so we had to get clever with free shipping promos and gifts with purchase to move the rest of the hats.

Something tells me they are going to have the same problem with the white ones.

What do you think of this year's version?  Tell us in the comments.

  1. Hat looks pretty good, only problem I have with it is tryna keep it clean, but I definitely like the hat!

  2. I appreciate the patriotic sentiment, but making teams wear a hat that goes abysmally with their color scheme is pretty dumb, and an aesthetic nightmare. I’m a big uni guy so this stuff bothers me.

  3. Would NEVER buy a white hat. Very plain looking. They will be left with thousands. This will be the year new era alows discounts. Speaking of which I saw last years version, 100% authentic in Koles for $9.99

  4. This is a joke, right? This hat looks like something sold at the Olypics in the early ’90’s.

  5. i like the hat so does my boyfriend. he thinks they would look the best with the cream jerseys but how often can they wear those? i agree with stru a white hat is nice but will def get dirty pretty quick especially if u get caught in the rain

  6. I am still to this day trying to get my hands on the navy blue Phillies stars and stripes hat but since they won the world series in 08, my chances are slim and fat.

  7. BL,
    We (i worked for MLB) sold those out that season, very tough to get hands on. Almost have to wait for a throwback version. no idea why they don’t reuse those, or make similar ones

  8. i think that teams that dont have red should wear the white hats and blue brims and then the teams with red wear red brims
