Cap Talk: What’s On Your Mind


For our latest Cap Talk interview, we link up with BayArea-based New Era enthusiast/die-hard San Francisco Giants fan Ernesto Dominguez, AKA Rockin_NewEra84. He has been collecting caps since 2001, and is well-known for his signature hand gesture and, also, his On-Field collection. Something you may not know about Ernesto is that his collection isn’t just limited to On-Field caps, he once witnessed a 59FIFTY giving birth, and he has a degree is psychology! In his interview, Ernesto discusses how he became such a big Giants fan, and lets us in on some of the unique caps in his collection. Also, he sheds some light on the #CachuchaCrew of New Era enthusiasts, which he is part of and, as he does have a degree in psychology, Ernesto gives us his opinion of whether us cap collectors are obsessed, addicted, or just simply passionate about collecting hats! Find out more of what’s on Rockin_NewEra84’s mind after the jump. What’s on your mind? Want to show off your cap collection? Hit us up at
