The new cap is a culmination of a design partnership with Kid Cudi. It takes a unique approach to the “C” logo of Cleveland’s baseball team by adding graffiti like dripping elements to the image. The New Era x Kid Cudi Cleveland Indians 59FIFTY® will be available later this month at Xhibition Cleveland and online at
