Classic ball cap. Wore it to Nationals Park recently and met a guy whose great grandfather played for the Grays.
Love. This. Cap.
I was inspired by this cap after visiting the ***** league museum in Kansas City and being disappointed with their selection and the gift shop. And good Lord. The fit and feel is perfect. Amazing cap.
The hat is super comfy. It fits a little bigger than the 59/fifty 7-3/4 hat but I prefer it that way. You can tell the hat is made with a high level of craftsmanship and quality. It was a nice surprise to find a beautiful metallic green material under the bill. It’s a really unique detail. Overall super happy! Thanks!
Beautiful as always!
Perfectly made hat and came astonishingly fast. Nice work!
