I absolutely loved what New Era started in Minnesota at the 2014 MLB All Star Game by designing special All Star caps that honored the host team. The potential was set up for new caps every year on All Star night to tell a different story about a host team's uniform history or local culture, while also allowing the game a rare chance to have some fun and get creative with their usually sacrosanct brands -- not to mention increasing merchandise sales in the process. Unfortunately, that was a trend that only lasted until next year in Cincinnati before New Era went in a different direction starting at the 2016 All Star Game in San Diego.

In an effort to show what could have been, I took it upon myself to continue what New Era once started and design my own concept caps for the 2017 MLB All Star Game in Miami. By going neon, (like everyone else ended up doing -- from ESPN to Fox to MLB Network) I saw a unique opportunity to infuse some bright color into the game for one night, make use of the latest cap printing technologies, and celebrate the vibrancy of Miami's world renowned night life.
