i did not wear a hat to the yankees/red sox game tonight.
i can't find my black mets hat, still. i wonder wtf happened to it? in the meantime, i have a grey pinstripey one. it's okay, but not great.
i am now wearing the goodyear hat from upthread.

is what i wear.
Also, holy shit: Negro League Caps. These team names, jesus! I had no idea. Black Crackers? Clowns?
If I could only find pics of some of my old hats... I admit, for a while I had a Yanks fullback, but it's long-dead on the floor of my parent's basement, I think. I also had this amazing Charlotte Hornets tricolor "graffiti' type hat that looked NOTHING like graffiti so much as just poor writing. I had an early-90s Jays cap for a while, too. Nothing else springs to mind.

yeah, i'm still all about the cotton "franchise caps." primaries are 60s and 70s o's "fun bird" caps, but i also really like the clemente era pirates cap and the early 70s bravos cap.

I used to always wear a black Jays new era w/ gold old-school logo, but it was stolen. so this is my default along with the black mets hat first posted

I have one official Tigers road hat, which I stole from my friend Tim.
One each of the Tigers and Red Sox franchise caps (I don't like these anymore)
One Chicago Cubs hat that I wore as a kid, which is twill with an adjustable strap (these are my favorite hats and noone makes them anymore, right?)

Are the A's wearing this hat this year? I haven't seen them play. It's pretty badass

Henry Aaron played for the Indianapolis Clowns. Back in the '40s, they would do Globetrotters-type shtick as well as play competitive games.
I wonder if that store on Haight has some new vintage caps / tees in? I thought twice about buying their stuff w/ this logo:

I kinda collect MLB caps. Which I suppose is slightly odd since I'm from Scotland...
I have these fitted caps:
Pirates (Gold 70's style)
Orioles (Black with orange O logo)
and these adjustable ones:
Red Sox (Blue)
Reds (White with red pinstripe)
You can see a few of them in this pic here
― treefell, Thursday, 24 May 2007 13:38 (twelve years ago) link
I should say that the fitted ones are left on display and the adjustable ones only get worn when I'm working in the garden.
I'm old enough to feel weird wearing a baseball cap when I'm walking around town.
― treefell, Thursday, 24 May 2007 13:40 (twelve years ago) link
perhaps I will buy Homestead Grays cap on Haight next week.
― Dr Morbius, Thursday, 24 May 2007 14:27 (twelve years ago) link
I'm wearing this one today
― zaxxon25, Friday, 25 May 2007 11:42 (twelve years ago) link
Zaxxon, that is a nice cap.
treefell, I'm in my early 20s and I feel weird wearing a baseball cap. It always seems way too "dude" for me. I do it anyway, though, because I leave home AND leave work at just about the right times every day to get an eye-load of sun, and I have very thick glasses so sunglasses are out of the question. And it'd be even weirder to zinc up under my eyes.
When I was buying my Reds cap, the woman at the cash went to move the sticker and said "oh, wait, do you plan to wear the sticker?" (I don't know why she asked or felt moved to move it). I replied, "No." and she said something to the effect of "good, because that's lame." My response: "It's like, it's new, we get it." Then she laughed way too hard and I felt like a comic king for about an hour. That's customer service.

I like your story, Will.
* a Knoxville Smokies cap
* a classic Boston cap
* a red Nationals cap with the interlocking "DC" (NOT the "W" cap - urgh!!) - this is really a beautiful cap. there are gold highlights on the letters.

LA Dodgers (but don't wear, not that there's anything wrong w/ that)
where is a serious hatter that aims low profile style for small heads? i've tried at least one of the MLB Franchise lines (adjustable kind) and hat comes down to ears and/or eyes.
― gabbneb, Thursday, 31 May 2007 22:44 (twelve years ago) link
lol @ small head
― hstencil, Friday, 1 June 2007 08:05 (twelve years ago) link
Today I'm wearing this though it has a white back instead of a navy one ... guess they don't manufacture the style anymore.
The stores outside of Fenway have an immense selection of Sox caps.
― zaxxon25, Friday, 1 June 2007 15:30 (twelve years ago) link
i have the same mfr but it's not a fitted hat, and the back is a little too big/angle between bill and head part insufficiently acute

i haz portland beavers cap
and this weird clown-striped brewers cap that has 1989 stitched on it but there's no way anyone ever wore that, I can't even find a picture online.
also, I have a beisbol cap for the mexican futbol team 'toluca' that steals the duke logo (they are the 'diablos rojos') and has flames on the bill, and a few kickin' blazers' caps. mostly though, I wear the brewers and the bevos caps

Tracer, I'm glad you liked my story, I thought it would be boring as hell and not make sense. Is this the hat you have?
C'mon hotlinking, don't ban me now.

The Ebbets site is awesome. Finally, a store that sells that hard-to-find Bonham Boogers gear.

now that my hair is short (and i'm going to try really hard to keep it that way) i think it might be time to buy a hat. thinkin about the classic red/white/blue expos and wishing i knew my hat size.

All the good authorized (wool, fitted) caps I've ever gotten have shrunk up too tight to wear after a couple of heavy sweats.
― Grisly Addams (WmC), Thursday, 13 May 2010 20:47 (nine years ago) link
this is pretty much the only hat I sport these days, and only when I go to games

Further, I bought a Milwaukee Braves hat w/ the big white "M" in the middle, and it is good. I still can't bring myself to get a NY Giants. Kinda want an Expos too, but I worry about the white crown getting grody in a hurry
