Searching for your 'whale'


Recommended Posts

Hey guys. Been searching for a Washington Nationals alternate hat, the DC one. (I really want the navy crown/red bill one but have given up all hope on finding that one...)

I've only been able to find youth sizes and strapbacks. I'd really like to find a size 7 1/2 authentic 59fifty, it's one of the "whales" of my collection. I found a size 8 on hatland, but I don't see my head getting that big in the near future. Any leads or ideas where to look? Don't want the stars and stripes one by the way, I find those to be pretty tacky.

I bought mine from a store near Angel Stadium several months ago. Standard pricing too. I think they might have one more of that size. I'd help you out but I rarely go to Anaheim unless it's baseball season.

For me, it's the 2003 Padres cap

seven whales for me;

1. NBA @ 50 Chris Webber Bullets throwback (my avatar)

2. Gheorghe Muresan Bullets or Wizards jersey

3. HWC Jerry Stackhouse Wizards jersey

4. Bernard King Bullets t-shirt

5.Potomac Cannons fitted

6. Tannish-gold Fresno Grizzlies road hat

7. A few years ago, a member on here talked about there being Nationals pillbox hats in his local TJMaxx or Marshall's. I remember he said he liked them, but the hats were red and black, not red and navy, so he didn't buy one.

It's definitely not all that rare, but I just found one of mine.

I didn't want to order it online because of sizing issues, but I finally found it at Hat Club. The bill is definitely way different than the team caps. It's shorter and more square. It has kind of a funny fit, but it's still great. I'm even using it for my Halloween costume this year.

Anyone have any Devil Rays caps from before their rebrand, in a 7 3/8, 7 1/2 or 7 1/4?

Would love to get some on field Polyester ones, but I don't really care which fabric they are.

Have you tried this? http://bit.ly/1gPio9C

I forgot about Mikeys, but all they have is wool. I'm looking for the current material. The wool here in Miami will shrink before it hits my doorstep.

Thanks for the heads up. I'm going to check it out and see if theres more I'd like.

Wonder if the Rays even wore the all black TB hat, or the Black/Green one in 2007?

Got one of my 'whales' recently - a jersey from the Canadian tv hockey drama 'Power Play' (1998-2000). Probably didn't need to add the years that the series ran; you could probably tell the era just by the colour scheme and cartoonish front crest and the 'fierce' fish patches.

Here's some more info on the tv show and the jersey if you are interested: http://reignoferror00.blogspot.ca/2013/10/power-play-hamilton-steelheads-jersey.html

Long story short, after college I sold off the 15 or so jerseys I had accumulated, which included a 1998 Logo Athletic (yes, they did supply a few NFL teams for a couple of years) authentic Tennessee Oilers Eddie George white jersey. Didn't bother me at the time but a couple of years later (and to this day) I am still kicking myself for selling that one. It would be a miracle to find another authentic one. My favorite jersey I've ever owned.
