Actors Alec Baldwin and John Krasinski are back for another ad for New Era. I suspect we will see this commercial in heavy rotation as the Boston Red Sox travel to New York hoping to maintain possession of the wild-card spot in the American League.

Actors Alec Baldwin and John Krasinski do some good old fashioned trash talking in an ad for New Era. This is the first in the “Rivals are Forever” commercials for the baseball cap company.
This game goes down on the ESPN network and it features Kansas State University Wildcats taking on Syracuse University Orange in the first ever New Era Pinstripe Bowl and is taking place at Yankee Stadium in New York, New York.
Kansas State, 7-5, 3-5 Big 12, experienced an up and down year as they started the year 4-0 before losing convincingly to then No. 7 Nebraska. The Wildcats though lost four of the next five games in Big 12 play. Head coach Bill Snyder has the luxuary of having standout running back Daniel Thomas who was the engine that drove the Wildcats offense in 2010. The senior ranked 9th in the nation with 1,495 yards, placing him second among K-State’s single-season rushing leaders. He averaged 5.4 yards per carry and 124.6 per game while scoring 16 touchdowns. He needs just 58 yards to move into second place on the Kansas States all-time rushing list.
The quarterback position is manned by senior Carson Coffman, who threw for 1,832 yards and 12 touchdowns while running for another 9 in 11 games this season while throwing 7 interceptions and was efficient in completing 64.2 percent of his passes in his first season as the starter. However, while K-State ranked 20th in the country in rushing offense, the passing game stood 97th and wideout Aubrey Quarles was the lone player to post any sort of significant numbers on the receiving end.
Syracuse, 7-5, 4-3 Big East, took a step forward in 2010 and the height of the Orange’s season came on when it shocked then 20th-ranked West Virginia with a win in Morgantown. But the Orange finsihed out the season losing two of its last three games. Syracuse head coach Doug Marrone offense leans heavily on senior running back Delone Carter, who surpassed the 1,000-yard mark for the second consecutive season. He averaged an impressive 5.1 yards per carry on his way to 1,035 yards and 7 touchdowns.
Junior quarterback Ryan Nassib was at the head of a proficient if unspectacular passing attack that finished 92nd in the country. Nassib’s ended the year with 2,095 yards passing, 16 touchdowns, 8 interceptions and completed 56.1 percent of his throws. He was able to spread the ball around to a number of different receivers, most notably junior Van Chew, who led the team with 41 receptions, 611 yards and 5 touchdowns.
Syracuse owns a 12-9-1 record all-time in bowl games but will be the Orange’s first bowl since 2004. The Wildcats are 6-7 all-time in bowl competition.
PICK: Syracuse University Orange
The San Francisco Giants beat the Texas Rangers 3-1 to win the World Series in 5 games, which I predicted they would back in spring training, but besides being crowned Major League Baseball champions they had to don these hats afterwords. The front of the Giants championship hat is fine however the back of it is where the creative geniuses at New Era have to be called into question. The usual MLB logo that sits on the back of their hats is replaced by the World Series trophy, which kinda resembles a male disco stick.

The NFL owners have approved a five-year deal that would see Nike acquire uniform and sideline apparel rights for the league’s 32 teams, while New Era, the longtime MLB on-field rights holder would, for the first time, gets NFL sideline rights for caps.
The new deal with Nike would take effect in 2012, marking their full return to the field since 2001. Nike only has since been visible in games through footwear and glove rights. Under Armour retained its rights to the NFL scouting combine, along with limited apparel rights. No word on the amount Nike paid to be the exclusive on field apparel for the NFL but back in 2001 Reebok/adidas became the official equipment supplier for $25 million a year.
The most interesting part of it all is the deal with New Era, which has grown largely because of its longtime relationship with MLB and has held it’s exclusive on-field cap rights since 1994. Now New Era is moving aggressively for growth with a pricey NFL license.
“It’s a bold statement by New Era,” said one licensing industry veteran. “They are trying to show the industry they are more than just a baseball company.”
I happen to have a nice size collection of New Era MLB caps but it fails in comparison to some collectors I know, that only look for limited edition caps. Well, New Era and Spike Lee today unveiled a limited edition cap that is right up that alley, manufacturing only 750 that come in a box and retail for $75.
This 59FIFTY fitted custom cap features an embroidered (raised) New York Yankees logo at front center with a stitched 1923 and 2000 at either side. The back is embroidered with the years of World Series Championship wins, New Era flag at wearer’s left side, and embroidered (raised) Major League Baseball logo on the rear. Interior includes a satin lining with a printed Inaugural Season graphic, branded taping and a moisture absorbing sweatband.
New Era and Lee will release a new limited edition cap each year internationally.
