Astros Hat Authenticity - can anyone verify?

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to collect a lot of the MLB caps, which can obviously get pretty expensive. So, I'm looking to get as many as I can on eBay. This one looks like the official home cap for the 'Stros, but I'm not 100% sure cause the tags are obscured - any thoughts?

I sent the seller a question asking him that - his item description doesn't say if it's New Era or not. That's the main reason i'm unsure, cause those tags(what I cans ee of them) don't look like New Era tags.

That does not look like New Era tagging sticking out of the back and the shape is wrong. In fact, New Era doesn't put tags on an authentic cap, usually just a sticker on the bill with the company logo and the cap's size. I don't think it's legit.

It is fitted, but now that I think of it, he called it a FlexFit cap, which means it stretches rather than has a definite size like the New Era caps do - thanks man, hadn't even thought of that.

speakin of stickers, is it just me or does it bug you too when you see some guy wearin a hat with the new era sticker and the barcode still on it? looks like they stole it or something :wacko:

I just saw that in the mall the other day - bothered the hell outta me - since when did it start being "cool" to not take tags off merchandise? Isn't that what "losers" forget to do a few years back? Stupid pop culture...

hadn't started seeing it that much til last year...and of course you can blame it on rap videos. cus see, they started leaving the stickers and tags on their hats....and of course everybody wants to be kewl so now everybody's rockin the "i'm too lazy to peel the stickers off" hat.

<_<

i think i'll wear my hat with no stickers, just to be different...wait, i was doing that already :D hooray me.

As Fat Joe said in a recent issue of FHM....

The hat still looks "fresh" with the tags. Don't bend the bill, I wanna kill a guy if I see him bending the bill. Also buy the hat 2 sizes too big.

What??? I break all those rules. I want a grungy ass hat, with as much curve as I can get, tight and low on my head. I'll occationally rooster it to the right, but that was a thing we did for college baseball for some reason. Old habits die hard i guess. Anyway...I break all of Fat Joe's Rules...I guess i'm a loser or something...I dunno.

Time to get off topic...

Another hat question...back in HS (6 or 7 years ago) there was a group that put the fishhooks on their bills. Like Larry the Cable guy does. Did anyone else do that? Seemed dumb to me.

Leaving the stickers on is just a stupid trend in the rap industry.

I wouldn't follow any rules by a guy who wrote a dance song that involved as little movement as possible.

Come on man! He did that to help white guys like me out. I can handle leaning back to impress women.
