Atlanta’s Major League Baseball team has reached the World Series for the first time in over 20 years. Many fans are either jumping on the bandwagon, or rediscovering a long lost love for their old team. If you are one of those fans, you may be looking to load up with some new fan gear to wear during the World Series against the Houston Astros, or to hopefully rock while you celebrate after their big win if things go Atlanta’s way.
Despite the enthusiasm, some fans are still upset that Atlanta’s franchise has yet to change their team’s name and mascot, which is largely seen as offensive to Native Americans. The Oregonian/OregonLive has a policy in which it does not use the team names sports teams that have mascots or names that can be viewed as disparaging to Native Americans. The Washington Football Team moved away from their offensive team name in 2020. And Cleveland’s MLB team officially announced they were changing their team name to the “Guardians” earlier this year.
Here’s a look at some Atlanta MLB team and World Series merchandise available to buy online including jerseys, hats, shirts, pennants and more that do not include the team name, mascot or Native American imagery.
• Want something that reflects what the players on the field will be wearing? This hat is about as good as it gets. The fitted version of the Atlanta New Era 2021 World Series Bound Home Sidepatch 59FIFTY Hat in Navy/Red($43.99).
• If you are looking for a cheaper option of the same hat, this replica version that is adjustable and features the same World Series patch is slightly cheaper and looks almost exactly the same. Atlanta New Era 2021 World Series Bound Side Patch 9FIFTY Snapback Adjustable Hat in Navy/Red($36.99).
