That ’70s Cap

Shag carpet. The AMC Gremlin. Pong. The Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour. There are some things that are certainly not worth bringing back, but Studio Simon does not consider the yellow-crown, black-visor caps worn by the Pittsburgh Pirates from 1970 through 1975 to be among them.

So when developing the brand identity for the Bradenton Marauders, the new Florida State League affiliate of the Pirates, Studio Simon was hoping to resurrect the look of this icon of ’70s baseball headwear, and presented it as an option for the club to consider. Much to our delight, the B-Bucs brass liked the idea, and included it in their on-field uniform system as an alternate cap.

We love the hats, but the pullover crew neck jerseys that those early-’70s Pirate clubs wore are best left on mothballs!


  1. Worst uniform ever: http://bit.ly/cXxrhY (even Kent Tekulve can't make it look good).

  2. Speaking of caps, I wonder if adding a clickable link from the Studio Simon Website to the Studio Simon Game Faces Blog would help drive more traffic to this excellent, well-updated blog, thereby adding more feathers to Dan's cap?

  3. What font is Marauders?
