Negro League paraphernalia and racial sensitivty

Is it offensive / tactless / rude for a white male to wear a re-issue of the Negro Leagues baseball cap for what would have been his hometown team?

I really like the design of the Detroit Stars Negro League re-issue ball cap but, as a white Detroiter, am curious if folks would find it tactless (at best). I am especially interested in hearing from black MeFis about their reaction to seeing a white dude sporting a Negro Leagues hat. It is a combination of hometown pride and liking the aesthetic of the hat, at least for me. Yeah, not a super-critical question or anything, but one I would like sincere feedback on. Thanks.
