HC finally manages to get a fairly accurate fifties SF Giants logo on a cap but NE just has to sabotage it by failing to interlock the letters. They pulled the same sh*t with the eighties Giants cap. Absolutely ridiculous company.

So annoying. Plus, why is the logo raised? It would look so much better is the logo was flat.

Pretty sure they raised the logo on the Tigers '72 road cap too. I've actually been looking to replace my TBTC (crown is a bit low) but the HC custom's logo leaves me cold whereas the TBTC's flat logo is one my favorites.

Did they? Honestly, I didn't pay any attention to that one.

One of HC's recent release days gave me a chance to finally replace two early poly caps that I don't wear anymore thanks to my tastes in cap construction changing. It would have been 3 if they hadn't put a raised logo on the Tiggers cap and I actually would have been seriously tempted to buy all four if NE hadn't botched the '58 Giants logo.

Bad news is that their Jays rail has fuzz-free poly so I'll have to hope for a re-stock on that one. Twins cap is a winner however. It looked promising in the photos and my last dark navy HC custom had the good poly so this was the rare example of a dark navy cap I wasn't expecting to have to send back. lol Included a shot of the underbrim because I just love how the green, navy and red work together on this.

Speaking of the green underbrim, this is kind of silly but this Twins cap has been on my radar for decades now thanks to it's inclusion in Terminator 2. The kid is obviously wearing a trucker-style snapback but the green underbrim is still sharp. I've seen green underbrims on a few non-fitted caps in older films and am always impressed how much they class up a cheap cap. lol
