Best Minor League Hat

Recommended Posts

I would like to go even further and see what farm organization has the best logos/hats overall. Here is a complete list of all farm teams and their respected affiliation

http://www.milb.com/milb/info/affiliations.jsp

I am most familiar with the Red Sox system, so I am a little biased, but I do like how each team's colors and design represent Boston's. I don't think many other farm systems' logos build off each other like the Red Sox' affiliates do.

Pawtucket Red Sox (AAA)

4541.gif

Portland Sea Dogs (AA)

Greenville Drive (A)

New to site so cannot start new thread thought this might be an appropriate thread to ask.Searching for Minor League & NCAA hats in particular teams and colors(from what i know/have found so far).Usually search Ebay as i'm not very clued up on Minor League hats but seeing as i prefer vtg 90's gear(hats included)i dislike the newer styled New Era fitted hats(59Fifty)etc as i prefer the 90's brands,styles such as Starter,Sports Specialties,The Game,Drew Pearson,Pro Player etc with a slightly square shape in the crown,with a wool blend material and green or gray underbrim.One reason i really like the Minor League & NCAA hats are,they don't seem as popular therefore rarely seen and harder to find.

From what i gather,it looks as though New Era are the only or one of the only companies/brands that make Minor League hats?.I don't mind the Fitted New Era Pro Model style hats but most Minor League hats i see are the later/present New Era style hats.Can someone please help me out with any info or point me in the right direction to where i may find where to buy what i'm looking for.Depends on team,colors and logo(past or present)and prefered main color for hats are all blue,black and or white with or without colored logo fitted or snapback.Didn't realize how many NCAA & Minor League teams there actually is!!!

NCAA teams(with these particular logo's) i'm interested in are:

All those? You appear to have a ton of extra cash to spend. ;)

New Era has the contract for all minor league on-field caps. You can buy them on New Era's site, MiLB.com, or here: http://www.minorleagues.com/

As for colleges, try http://fanatics.com or the individual schools.

Or there's always eBay.

Lol i would buy one at a time IF i come across exactly what i'm after.I assumed only New Era made Minor League hats which is a shame considering i don't like the newer style hats UNLESS i can find them in vintage 90's style New Era Pro Model hat.Ebay is the main site i buy from but with certain things such as specific teams or style hats they don't have much variety at all.Wish there were a site dedicated & specifically designed for minor league & NCAA apparel vintage 90's & present.

Will check links thanks

This Winston Salem Dash hat w/logo for example,hat style appears to be what/similar to what i want,color yes but side view dislike material prefer wool blend.

http://wsdash.milbstore.com/store_contents.cfm?store_id=84&dept_id=1097&product_id=56868

Would buy this one,color & material looks more what i'm after but dislike 59Fifty style.

http://wsdash.milbstore.com/store_contents.cfm?store_id=84&dept_id=1097&product_id=6391

Judging by pics & description definitely dislike 59Fifty,9Fifty style looks ok but they don't show New Era Pro Model?.

Should have started a new thread, instead of bringing up an old one about a year old contest. Unsuspecting people (Like My self :angered:) could think that that the contest is still going on...

Uh yes just as i thought, New Era hats either not the color/s or particular logo i'm wanting.

You may need to get used to disappointment.

You have very specific wants, and I don't think they exist.

Think reason why my wants seem so specific to you or others is only because i prefer 90's styles which are no longer made so harder to find.I did show the Minor League site some of my 90's Minor League Pro Model Hats here is what they said

The models shown are models we carried back in the 90’s. They are not styles we carry or would purchase in current logos.

If you haven't hit up the New Era Cap Talk forums yet, you should. That'd probably be a little bit better of a place to find those specific hats. We're all into that kinda stuff, no doubt, but we're not always the most successful (just check the thrift store jems thread! :P). We're more about the design of the merchandise rather than the sales point (sort of).

They're New Era guys over there, but I'm sure there's a member or two who could provide some help.
