Anybody have any luck finding this year's World Series hats in USA made poly? Dont care to get a Dodger's fitted just yet but ive been looking all over for a Red Sox in a 7 3/8 USA made and no luck. If anybody has any leads let me know!

Finding any MUSA Red Sox on-fields is a challenge in my experience. Assuming they just slapped the WS patch on old stock so it might be a struggle finding MUSA's. Will check out Lids this weekend if possible though my local one hasn't carried anything interesting for several months now.

This year is a rough sell for me anyway as a Giants fan, but I absolutely cannot find ANY Red Sox caps in anything other than Chino garbage. This is probably gonna be the first year ever where I don’t get a hat from one of the teams. Not even that sad about it, really.

I found two MUSA w/IM in my size (7 1/2) in Natick, MA, on my way up to Game 1. The poly is sub par, and the crown on one is a bit uneven. I haven’t seen a true MUSA/good poly in any Sox cap in quite a while. All other sizes I saw were either made in China or Bangladesh.

Don't give up finding a US made hat. Looks like they made a run of US on fields that feature the newest MIUSAWIM tagging and somewhat better poly than the previous Imported US trash and the crown is less stiff. I found my Astros 9/11 and postseason hats like this and they are decent. There might be a really slight chance in slapping patches on any stock New Era had laying around they might find some real old stock poly hats. I saw 2-3 Astros postseason hats with the good poly and Fly Your Own Flag tagging.

Yes, I found many WS LA hats here in the Twin Cities MIUSA but very few Boston's if any at all.

Not a fan of the WS champions patch. Looks like the damned size sticker.

Yep that patch is the worst ever. Absolutely no imagination went into that at all.
I hope the ring ceremony hat will look better.

I went to a Lids near Boston where I live and went through all the 7 3/8's and 7 1/2's. Out of the racks and racks of hats, I literally found 4 that were made in USA. Of those, I think I picked the best one, meaning the crown was even with the bill and no crown creases. I will say the quality of the MUSA ones were suspect. And the hat has a weird smell to it.

Saw the WS Champions patch hat at the Fanzz at The Galleria near Sacramento and it looks like either a gold coin or the size sticker on the side of the hat

Does anyone ever just buy the China hat, remove the patch and then put it on a MUSA on-field?

Some Brewers ones have been popping up in Milwaukee... if only... still a cool cap to have, they were on sale, and decent MUSAWIM poly, so why not!
