Yeah, you probably passed us. I had my Wife, a baby in a stroller and my dog with me.


With all three, were you able to stay past the second inning? Smile

Yeah we stayed for the whole first game (7 innings) and half of the second game. Only lost 1 hat out of like 10. Well someone kind of stole it after we left it on a pole on the way to the car. Better than losing the dog or kid, lol

That's debatable!

Really bummed I missed out on the Senators Christmas hats. Great looking hats. The jerseys were nice too


The poly and fit was excellent too. They had 1 5/8 left ( which I think is your sz?). I bought it for Jerry though. Seems that the only sizes remaining in the team store were 6 7/8,7 and 7 1/8.


Boo! That is my size. Ah well.

Oops, they did it again...



It's like, 'How much more purple could this be?' and the answer is 'None. None more purple.


Oh well. Saves me some money.

Some are done correctly which is good to see, however that $50 price point should make these sit like ducks on a pond. Not to mention the ones that are supposed to have a batterman and don't really really bothers me. I'm sure that is some sort of licensing deal however.

Now if some of these were part of the MiLB Hometown Collection ($35, USA a made and poly)...my wife wouldn't be happy with me.

This Potomac is actually the only one I wanted.

Well, not *this* Potomac. I was interested in one that came close to the right color, which this one doesn't.

I know EFF just re-upped their license with MiLB. Might be part of their new deal. $50 is a bit high though, even for them. These 90s caps are new territory for EFF. However, their license does cover "Non-Contemporary Authentic Caps". Basically, as long as it isn't the current on-field cap, they can make it.

I'm bummed it's mostly East Coast stuff. At least there is one Cal League team.

Pros: USA-made guaranteed, no flag logos
Con: Price, no batterman logo

Interesting on the renewal as I know elements of MiLB were wanting to push back on that deal so they could run their Hometown Collection a bit deeper and wider.

Their "90's style" caps have been a mixed bag for me as the handful I've messed with have varied wildly on depth. Otherwise decent hats.

Yes, the earlier "structured" EFF caps used a shallower crown but it looks to me like they've started going with the higher crown now.

Congrats! Photos would be much appreciated, especially of the logo. I'm hoping that the team store will have some in stock this week.

Wish they'd done the Charleston Wheelers instead of the Alley Cats, it's still pretty easy to get a new with tags Alley Cats cap if you keep an eye on the Bay. However, blue and green typically had the stigma of "doesn't sell," at least it did back then, which is why the team switched.

Pisses me off to think about the ones I had back in the day that either got lost or wrecked.
