For the past few months, our monthly Top 5 pieces have been wild and and wacky, with caps featuring: mutant blue fur; fur straight outta Moscow; bacon; a baseball bat-wielding, smiling Asparagus Man; a baseball bat-wielding, smiling #SockMan; and caps from a galaxy, far, far away, to name a few. However, May was all about caps with honor: honoring a legendary baseball player, honoring the struggle to gain civil rights that we now take for granted, and honoring troops who fight for our freedom. On a lighter note, there was also a cap honoring the Gotham City Police Force and all the hard work they do to help Batman fight crime. Not sure where this cap lies in the honor department, but there’s also 59FIFTY that features a baseball bat-wielding, smiling Tadpole. Make sure to check out this month’s Top 5 to see what made #1!
