The NBA’s “On Stage” 2020 Draft cap collection was launched earlier today across the league’s online shops and Fanatics.
This year’s New Era 2020 NBA Draft Official On-Stage 9FIFTY Snapback Adjustable Hat collection has a heather grey crown with each team’s name scripted across the front of the cap, below this script is one of the team’s alternate or partial logos from their official style guide.
This scripted team name and the logo are both presented almost in a chain-stitched style, it gives it a very old-fashioned look overall.
On the side of each cap is either the team’s primary icon or global logo. The stitching across the front as well as the visor are both coloured depending on the team’s primary colour. The caps are all snapback, the snapback is also re-coloured to match the visor colour. New Era’s logo is on the left side and the NBA logo is on the back.
The use of a partial or alternate logo below the scripted team name helps avoid logos which are too detailed, a problem with that chain-stitching style used here. But it also leaves us with a handful of teams that simply have a basketball below their name: the Knicks, Pistons, Suns, Jazz all just use a basketball while the Raptors, Magic, Nets, Wizards all use a slight variation of a ball.
Here’s a look at the entire league:
The 2020 NBA Draft is scheduled to be held on October 16th, right after the planned conclusion of the 2020 NBA Finals.
