The Cleveland Indians dropped their new uniform combos this morning and let me be the first to tell you I love them and will spend every penny on them.
You can complain about the disappearance of a certain logo if you want to, but I won’t hear you over the sound of my bank account draining as I buy the new Cleveland Indians jerseys. If you didn’t see it over the news of the team adding Cheh-Wei Hu, or happened to be busy looking at the Cardinals new alternates, you may have missed it.
But man, these things are beautiful. (And conveniently on sale in time for the holidays). The Indians announced the move this morning by displaying the new red uniforms on a headless mannequin.
I love them, I need them and I’m such a sucker. The Indians could’ve dropped the ball and made horrible “modifications” like the Browns. But they gave us a great red jersey that I never knew I wanted. But not only that, we got a sweet blue road uni? I’m in, I’m all in.
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE. On top of these beauties, the Indians gave us a block C cap with the red bill, something that I knew I wanted. Say what you will about the block C, but I think it’s a clean look that just feels like a baseball logo.
In the wake of this, it does mean we’re going to be losing the blue jerseys with the ‘Indians script’. But frankly, I don’t miss them as much considering how overused they were. This has made me forget some of the terrifying rumors that we’ve had. It’s made me forget the horrible playoff series, and made me so much more excited for the new season.
These babies are hot off the presses and I want them, I need them. I’m a sucker. The Indians could smear poo on their jersey and I’d buy it. I don’t care. Go Tribe.
