Nah. The nose and cheek shadow point to either a raised big wahoo original or a made in China custom retro.

On the flat originals and retro classics, the red chin coloring should be the same as the rest of his face.

Heís NOT wearing a retro classic. It even could be a ultimate patch fitted. Shadows lend themselves to me believing this isnít a retro classic

So, Lids was a horror, and it took them 18 days to ship my order, and another 5 days to receive it, but I received my SF Giants retro classic as well as a Mariners Griffey number retirement cap today. Both made in USA and fit perfect. Not happy with how long it took or their worthless responses to my tweets at them, but happy with the caps.

Nice Pickups. Sucks that you had issues with Lids shipping yet again. In my experiences lately Lids had gotten 100% better. They ship within a day of ordering and the packages get here in a timely manor. Maybe itís just my luck. Anyways nothing beats USA made with a great fit.

I have gotten recent orders that shipped from their warehouse quickly; a couple shipped within 24 hours of placing the order. This order ended up shipping from a store in Maryland. I got the last Griffey hat in my size, and the Giants was one of three left. I can understand it taking a bit longer to ship from a retail location, but 3 1/2 weeks is just ridiculous.

I just bought a NY Ynakees Retro Classic from Lids. Its made in the USA and all wool. It is very similar to my 90's era 5950's. The crown seems higher, but after using a hair dryer on the plastic crown, forming to my head, then soaking in warm water and again forming to my head, the crown and hat shrunk to a perfect fit. I know most dont like to bend the brim or mash the hat to fit your head, but I'm old school and love a broken in hat. A plus is there isnt a NE logo on the side, which is nice. I had a Diamond Era Pirates hat that had a NE logo but in the hat color so it didnt stand out.

The RC is a somewhat well made hat, but the wool seems lightweight compared to one of my 90ís era hats, but nothing that will bother me. Love the white under bill and sweatband and flat logo.

Overall a pretty nice hat.

One of the best one of the entire collection. I didn't need to break in the Yankees but I'm gonna have to do it to my Giants one
