Dodgers: New Era Misses Badly on Caps Featuring Clayton Kershaw, Others



It seems that New Era and Macy’s department stores have teamed up on some ball cap designs featuring MLB player’s likenesses. One major problem with this “lil player” series is that the likenesses are rough, to say the least.

As usual, the internet has given us some incredible takes with these caps.

A Dodger star is one of the featured players on a cap…

 

Yes, that’s supposed to be Clayton Kershaw, though it may have been hard to tell without the name prominently displayed under him.

Additionally, internet legend Jomboy got in on the fun by presenting a hypothetical marketing session for these caps.

 

One Twitter user had some questions when it came to the design for “Corey’s brother.

 

One big issue came when the design for Houston Astros pitcher Zack Grienke was discovered…

 

Yes, it seems that they may have completely forgotten about Grienke’s trade from Arizona.

If you happen to see someone in public wearing any of these caps, do them a favor and buy them a beer. It was clearly an unfortunate gift from grandma over the holidays. (I’m aware these are youth caps…)

    • I want a hat that says two things:

      (1) LA

      (2) World Series Champions

      I don’t care what the rest of it looks like.

  1. These hideous hats will be a collector’s item, just like Ron Cey’s hit single, “Third Base Bag.”
    The New Era logo already made the hats ugly, now add the Nike swoosh.
    Can Manfred whore out MLB more than he has?

  2. I remember stealing a picture of Gil Hodges off the end flap of a loaf of bread when I was a kid, because it was Gil Hodges! I wouldn’t steal one of these caps, let alone, buy one.

  3. I like the old Billy Ripken baseball card with the inappropriate word on the bat knob much better.
