Ok everyone,

Just wanted to let everyone know Fanatics is dead to me....
I went ahead and bought 10 White Sox on-field fitteds to see if a few would be MUSA material(it's worked before). It didn't ...

Just talked to a Lids online agent and gave her my 2 cents (our 3 dollars to be honest). She just fed me automatic replys and BS. Just bought my last hat off Fanatics because I was forced to. There is ...
