I have never seen this particular hat. Any NE history buffs out there ever see this one?

You don't see it but it could be a Cooperstown collection labeled cap. I would ask the seller for a photo of all the labels.

I have a Cooperstown collection cap from 2006, with the blue NE tags. And one from 1993-1996, with the original 5950 tagging.

Green under and no batterman does appear on the 2006 cap. I've seen other designs and colors

Tagging wise with what we see, obviously 1997-2000.

I'm guessing it's a Cooperstown collection Musa 100% wool cap from 1997-2000. Color wise, it's the original trident design with current colors.

Thank you for the great information. I'll have to reach out to that seller.

Another random question, are the bills harder to curve on a wool hat or is it the same as the 59fiftys now?

Here are some links of what I'm talking about

I bought two from the seller above, a vintage looking As cap, and a vintage looking tigers cap.

There's this one too

Much like the Cubs hat above, it looks like they may have taken some freedom to alter some designs. I could be totally wrong about the Mariners. But that shade of green under looks more like these, than anything else. So I'm suspecting Cooperstown collection.

Pre 1997 wools are super easy to bend. 1997-2006 are a bit stiffer than the norm. But nothing too out of the norm. Pre1997 is much like today's, or easier. It could be an age thing. Most of the 97-06 caps come pre curved in a sense. Theyre basically perfect out of the box.
