Welcome back to Gaslamp Ball's Cap Tournament! I'm really excited for this next matchup, as it sort of personifies the old vs. the new. A fresh secondary color vs. the classic accent color. Which caps am I talking about? Well, let's check out the Modern Bracket standings:
This particular matchup will decide which cap will face off against the 2007 Sunday Alternate in the Modern quarterfinals. Let's check out our contestants for what should be a great matchup:
2016 All-Star Commemorative - Navy/White/Yellow
The long-awaited update to the Padres' headwear, this cap adds sunshine yellow to the navy/white palette. Accurate to the on-field version for this year, this cap includes the 2016 All-Star Game patch on the side. This cap had a strong showing in the polls though was the worse of the newest Padres caps, placing 2nd overall.
And the challenger:
2004 Alternate Cap - Navy/Gold(Sand)/White
An alternate cap paired with an all-sand uniform, this cap puts the alternate sand color first in the interlocking SD. Mainly used as a road cap, this cap eventually faded away along with the sand in 2012. The navy/sand colorway did not gain much traction with voters, earning a 5th seed.
So which cap will move on in the tournament? Will the new yellow hotness beat the old busted-up sand joint? Will sand enjoy a resurgence and upset the newest colorway? You decide the outcome!
