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.
Macy’s and New Era are selling these baseball caps and I just can’t. I’ve seen people create Mii’s more realistic than these pic.twitter.com/uzFDZFJMtv

A Dodger star is one of the featured players on a cap…
Good job new era! You guys nailed the Kershaw caps! pic.twitter.com/1rLfXpLZRr

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.
Marketing Team: How do we get one of the best pitchers in baseball more exposure?
New Era: Why don’t we draw a really ugly, almost unrecognizable picture of him and put it on a hat? pic.twitter.com/PukDr6atbM

One Twitter user had some questions when it came to the design for “Corey’s brother.“
does the person who designed this hat dislike Kyle Seager personally, yes or yes? pic.twitter.com/8U1JtWqcDT

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…)
