  1. What about the Padres? Wasn't ownership considering making changes for the 2015 season or was that 2 or 3 ownership groups ago? They are in need of a complete overhaul.
  2. I noticed on Hatclub.com that the Cubs Game hat is on sale. They traditionally do not put hats on sale unless there is going to be a change the next season.
  3. The A's have eight "throwback Thursday" promotions scheduled for this season. Does anyone know if the A's will be wearing uniforms from those periods or will they just be giving away the patch that is listed on the website.
  4. The one thing Paul did not mention was the material that the hats are made from. Are they standard 5950's or a mesh variation?
  5. I'm not a Pirates fan but I own three different Pirates caps and adding to their new alts and these BP ones, I might be adding two more. I really like it and it's nice to see that the gold brim balances well with the logo EDIT: A's promotional schedule is out http://oakland.athle...ns.jsp?c_id=oak On July 27, they're going with 1969 throwbacks And since April 27 will honor the 1973 team, they might wear throwbacks from that era too. There are a lot of options for them Let's hope they break out the correct coaches cap for each era.
  6. I am surprised no one mentioned the Dodgers. Brooklyn to Los Angeles
  7. The caps were actually made and there was one on ebay about two years, size 8, that sold around $100.
  8. In addition to the Pirates bringing back the mustard caps, I would like to see the Angels wear "Los Angeles" on the road uniforms and have an "LA" with or without the halo. The Cubs should also go back to the monochrome look at they wore against the Giants this year with the thinking of "we wore these the last time we won the WS maybe we can do it again. Hopefully, in 2014 with new ownership, the Padres will finally be doing a redeisgn of the mess that they have now. As for the Nationals, what can they be adding now. Maybe a red cap with a blue "W".
  9. I would like to see the Pirates mustard yellow cap incorporated in somehow. It definitely looks better than the current alternate.
  10. Where did you see the Tarpons cap? When they had it at the team store I could not bring myself to spend $44 plus shipping.
  11. Indeed. I was 11 when that SI arrived in the mailbox. I was astonished by the fact that a big league ballplayer smoked cigarettes. For some reason, I thought it was cool. Youth. And let's not skip over Wilbur Wood. If memory serves, he went 24-20 in 1972. Only a rubber-armed knuckleballer could have pitched enough innings to win 20 and lose 20 in the same season. EDIT: My mistake. Wood went 24-17 in 1972. 1973 was the year he went 24-20. He damn near pulled off another 20-20 season in 1974 but he couldn't get that 20th loss so he had to settle for a 20-19 record. I believe the other famous knuckleballer, Phil Niekro, went 20 wins and 20 losses in a season at some point in his career.
  12. The correct color is royal blue not navy blue. For whatever reason about two years, New Era randomly changed the color of the cap to Navy Blue. Unfortunately, Majestic is following along.
  13. Excellent video and someone that has the same obsession with MLB hats (my count is 237). I am looking for the same hats that you just purchased but refuse to pay $30 for them. Keep up the good work
  14. The hat worn by Don Zimmer was not a half heart attempt but actually the first generation "taco bell" cap without the orange worn in 1972 as a alternate cap once or twice during the season. If you are looking for the close replica the best place to find out would be at the team store if the Padres have a TBTC day. The past few years the caps have not been available to retail.
