Just spotted this this morning
https://goldinauctions.com/mobile/lotdetail.aspx?inventoryid=50881&seo=new_york_yankees_cap_used_by_alex_rodriguez_to_hit


I realize each player has hundreds of caps at their disposal. I know for consumers the # of Chinese caps out number MUSA, especially the yankees. I didn't think the same would hold for player inventory dating back to 2010. Mind blown.

New Era has had overseas production since the early-to-mid 2000s. I have seen both Yankees and Red Sox game used caps made in China. The demand for those is higher, so a lot of them get made overseas. I assume New Era just didn't have any domestic ones available when the team needed more.
