Bought an ASG hat at the Giants game last night. Made in China, but fits well.

The Giants version


Why did they use that logo for the Giants?


It looks like they are using retro logos for this year's 4th of July hats

Just a heads up in St. Louis folks. Marshall has good amount of authentics made in the USA with imported material for $9.99. The fit and feel is similar to the old made in the usa caps. I'm trying to get back in the game because I love the sensation of hunting down good "made in the usa" caps now.

Nats are celebrating the Expos on July 6. Wearing throwbacks. Pinwheel coming. Any chance these are 1. MUSA and 2. Have batterman?

I called the team store this morning and they said they won’t have the hats until that day and have no info on them beyond that...

I highly doubt they will be USA made unless the Nats planned it a while ago and Derby churned them out before the closure. Does anyone know if the Miami-area manufacturing has started yet?

I found a Turn back the clock 1970's STL logo from 2017 made in USA at TJMAXX today!
I also found a retro white hat with Soutache braiding with a 1931 World Series patch I couldn't pass up either both in 7 5/8. usually I find hats undersized but these fit pretty nice.

Picked up a low profile Pittsburgh Crawfords hat from the Pirates' TBTC night. It's Made in Bangladesh. The fit and construction isn't terrible, but the quality of the materials is downright awful.

Wonder if NE is putting "Bangladesh" on China-made hats to avoid the Trump tariffs. That's been an issue with other products.

Not sure if its across the board in all retail stores but the store I work at is marking up on fields tomorrow from $37.99 to $39.99. Last time we marked them up everyone else made the mark ups around the same time. Just an FYI

And all for lesser quality predominantly foreign-made crap. Insanity.

Wow.

And here I see non flagged musa great poly sit at $15-$25 on eBay

I don’t get people. There isn’t really a sellers market right now but Lids has managed to still sell hats at these markups.

Yeah, it's weird. I've listed NWOT MUSA poly caps on eBay and had to accept peanuts. Gotten some decent deals myself as well. I suspect this second price increase in the span of a few months is tariff-related but it's still incredible that they're trying to sell a significantly worse product for more money.

NE has seemed increasingly tone deaf over the last few years, so while it's incredible, it's sadly not susprising.
