I don't think they were supposed to change them much. Just that the logo was supposed to be bigger with the proper detail on the crown. They did not want to sell the ones New Era fucked up so they waited until they got remade. Those definitely are bigger logos so they must be the new ones.
It's actually white, red, and blue, not black. I'm not a photographer but we needed pictures really quick so I tried to get some decent shots. When they go up on abstract mall there will be better pictures.
