Searching for your 'whale'


Recommended Posts

FINALLY found one of my biggest ever Whales. 

 

Reds early 90s 59Fifty.

Complete with with the original iron on MLB batterman(!)

This is seriously the cap that got me into collecting fitted caps, and probably one of the biggest reasons I'm a sports uniform nut.

This isn't just my whale. It's the whole damn pod of whales.

You should make it yourself.  That decal is fairly prevalent on eBay, so I say go it. 

 

I had the same problem where I couldn't find a helmet I love (The Skins' "feather" helmet), so I just made my own.  It's a very rewarding process.

First off, congrats!!

 

Curious -- are you going to ever wear it or it it too valuable to you to wear? 

 

I only ask because sometimes I'm torn about wearing my most prized memorabilia. I have a Kenyon Martin authentic jersey which got me into collecting jerseys over a decade ago and I NEVER wear it out for fear of it being ruined but I wear it at home for big games that need the extra luck factor (its been a few years, as you can imagine). However, I'm sure with caps it may be different.

The helmet is easy enough to find. Its the jerseys I want more than anything.

How can the team think the current version with the ugly black drop shadow is in any way superior to this beauty?

My white whales:

- Mets 1976 pillbox hat

- Rangers white Lady Liberty for a reasonable price in my size (I'm 3xl :/ )

- Newcastle United 1990s era jerseys, particularly any years where they had the Newcastle Brown Ale blue star sponsor. Also those rad sublimated city skyline keeper jerseys.
