Some really cool ones... especially like the A's using the elephant logo. The Cubs one is just the old away hat.

I kind of like the screaming indian logo, but I'm probably culturally insensitive.

No kidding. It's a miracle THEY'RE not the ones called "the Redskins."

everyone else is using cool old logos for their bp hats, would it have killed the cubs to do the same?

preferably this logo

the astros hat is really sharp, too

Another dastardly deed by Clown Kenney in his attempt to torpedo this organization, imo

Not a huge fan of that old logo... but I do love the 80's/early 90's Cub face

I'm happy the Orioles are using the cartoon bird again. I've always like that.

I'm just pleased to see that the league has done away that stupid piping on the bill.

It's not exactly the old away hat -- the C is white.

+1 on the '80s cubbie bear. I'd like to see him replace the "cub walking through the C" logo entirely.

I have a new era 5950 version of this hat.

I would have really liked to see the Cubs go that route with the BP hat.

The walking bear looks like he should be picking toilet paper off his butt in a Charmin ad.

I was going to get a hat like that but my girlfriend said it looked like an anime bear and I decided she was right.

That's a stupid thing for your girlfriend to say and she's a stupid person for saying it.
