The seller claims this is a San Diego Padres cap. I've never seen this before...

It might be from the years when San Diego had a minor league (Pacific Coast League) team called the Padres.

which hasnt been for years... due to them being w/ the LV Stars and now the Portland beavers.....

It could be the Univ of San Diego. I believe their colors are similar to that hat, or it could be a fashion for just the city or a clever way to get around RBK and have it represent the Chargers.

Anyways, that is really not a bad looking hat. It is simple and with the white crown and blue bill. Very nice.

I believe he's referring to the time when the city of San Diego was home to the PCL Padres from 1936 through 1968, not a Padres affiliate called the Padres.

I don't recognize it as a PCL Padres logo, which isn't conclusive since my knowledge of the PCL pretty much ends at the '57 season, but the particular shape of the serifs on the D is strongly suggestive of this being a post-1968 design. I'd guess 1996 or more recent, from the shape of the D and the outline on the letters, but that's pure guesswork.

But perhaps I'm wrong and this is a PCL-era Padres cap made for a throwback game?

Nice logo, though, whether it's for San Diego or South Dakota or Social Distortion. Well, it would need to be ripped up some to work for the band.

It's not an old USD hat, the D did not have the serif as this design. The "D" really looks like the style font used by the Padres. I'm still perplexed as to what this could be, it must be some offbeat designer hat made for the Padres.

Well, I can't tell what it is, but I can tell what it isn't. It doesn't look like a current hat for UCSD, USD, or SDSU. State uses their Red & Black interlocking logo on black or on a red crown with white front panels; USD was already posted; and UCSD seems to only wear an interlocking "UC" logo.

Personally, I'm stumped...it's not even a quirky cap on Lids.com, it seems.

Could you even picture Mike Ness or Johnny 2 Bags sporting that at a gig?
