The 2013 version is on the left, 2014 on the right. The 2013 version has a much smaller "bell" compared to the 2014 version. The 2014 version also has thicker stitching and does not show any yellow where the orange outline is close together. The non-outlined portion of the logo still overlaps instead of interlocks. Just when New Era was showing signs of making these caps more faithful to the originals, they took a step backwards this year. The 2014 version is almost exactly like the 2011 version (which was not released to retail).
I was all set to purchase a game used cap once the last game they wore them was over, but I was told that the team changed their mind and will wear these caps once more this season. They have not announced a date.
I will be in San Diego at the end of the month and I am in talks to make an appearance to discuss these caps. I will post the details once everything is finalized.
Now that that my schedule allows for more free time I will have more posts coming. There's a lot in the works with lots of neat and unique content. Stay posted!
