Sports Specialties Hats

I have a 1993 Florida Marlins fitted hat from Sports Specialties that is a size 6 and 7/8, it looks like an authentic New Era, but obviously a different company made it. Were these hats used in games at all, or has it always been New Era?

Nice, I think I'd like to get a few more. I kind of like the fit. I guess eBay is the only way now. Thanks for the info. After your response I did some research, and I found out New Era, Sports Specialties, and Roman all were on-field caps at one point. Their quality all ranges as well. Check this out:

New Era 5950

I honestly like the old Sports Specialties hats more than the New Era hats. The wool seemed stiffer and more durable.

I definitely preferred the Sports Specialties hats. The New Eras sat way too high off of my head and the bill was essentially a half-circle. I think the New Era has improved some, but may favorite MLB hats in my closet are my two remaining Sports Specialties (Cubs and O's).

I have a ton of these hats in different teams in my basement, let me see what teams I have and what sizes and I will take some pictures of them and get back with you.

Nice. What sizes? I wear 6 and 7/8 or 7 since I'm kind of between the two.

The place where I picked up a few Sport Specialties hats was a store called Meyer the Hatter in New Orleans in 2006 (I was there during the Christmas break). I don't know if they still have anymore, but they are worth a try.

Which is awesome, except Chicago to New Orleans for some hats is a little difficult. I checked online, but it seemed all bowler hats and the like. Thanks though =).

I just got off work and have errands to do but I will look this evening after dinner for you. Off the top of my head here are the teams I know I have.

1994 Mariners Teal Alternate

1993 Marlins Teal, maybe teal with the black brim

1994 Brewers with green brim

1994 Angels home

I will update this and get back with you later this evening.

You can always call. They specialize in dress hats, but I found my hats in the clearance section of the store. It was all hats from the 70's through the early 90s.

I own one authentic SS throwback cap, which was the Brewers with the gold MB right before they went to the NL

Got a photo of it?
