Here's a picture of the new cartoon bird:
And a comparison of Cartoon Orioles past with the new one:
I know a lot of people around the Orioles blogs, forums, and websites were really excited in anticipation of a new Cartoon Bird being unveiled. It will sell a lot of new merchandise but I hope fans don't get the wrong idea and think it makes the team any better.
The new logo is a good mix of both of the old ones but wearing the "O's" hat. The updated feel is nice but I actually hate the "O's" hat and the black alternate jerseys that they only wear on Fridays. I actually hope this doesn't become the "Official" logo and is only worn on the hats.
I personally don't care for the new Home hats with the white panel. I think it looks too much like a trucker hat. Leave that crap in the 80's! I prefer the new Road hats with the all black crown but am still not completely sold.
There is one thing I do like is the official return of the orange jersey. I'd rather see them wear these on Fridays instead of the goth/emo/hipster black jersey.
I think I don't like the idea of wearing an Orioles hat with an cartoon wearing a hat that I detest. I'm not in a hurry to upgrade my wardrobe anytime soon.
