Searching for your 'whale'

Recommended Posts

Another whale - I had back in the day and would love to have again. Oakland A's Elephant Sunglasses spring training cap in a 7 3/8.

Didn't HatClub sell that hat last year? It wasn't the original run of hats, but HatClub had four or five teams' BP hats that New Era recreated, and I could have sworn the A's were one of those teams. Not sure if they sold out.

I noticed these on their siteimg_0480_1.jpg

Is that what you meant, or did they have the mesh material version recreated at some point last year?

I thought they had the mesh...but it might have been that one...haha. Wish I could be of better help.

This is crazy - I clicked on this thread with the intention of posting that hat as my own 'whale,' but figured I better look through all the posts to see if someone else had posted the same thing. After 8 pages, I decided that the time scrolling wouldn't be worth it.

Anyway, on Google Images I searched for this hat and when I clicked on this photo, it led me directly to page 41 of this thread! Crazy stuff.

Any luck, BTW? I still can't find one -_-

Gah, I was willing to go much higher on that jersey but my laggy connection :censored:ed things up. Been trying to get one of these jerseys for decades, I have the '81-'85 road jersey and the '85-'93 home jersey, but I need the road version...

The hunt continues....

While I lost my whale awhile back, I got a "baby whale" this week!

Is that a Champion Irish Rainbow replica?!?!

I have a Sand-Knit irish Rainbow, Terry Cummings. Wanna trade??

The replicas back then sucked. There was no Irish rainbow on the sides of the replicas, just like the Magic jerseys didn't have the pinstripes.

My girlfriend ordered me my white whale, and it looks like it'll be arriving this week... I suppose I better put a ring on it.

Why? Low crowns are usually made in USA. At least, those sold on minorleagues.com are. I'll report back next week when it arrives, but if it's a fake it's a bummer.

Does anyone know where I can buy the cap patch for this years MLB All Star game? MLB shop only sells the jersey patch and the caps with the patch are high crowns.
