I'm not too big on white hats, but this one actually looks pretty clean. I think my favorite "Stars and Stripes" collection was last years that had the two white panels in the front

If you hit up my blog I did several posts about them. I personally think that they are all hot and miss, but the Rays caps generally do work put unless it is the 2009 red ones. if I were you I would try to find the all navy Rays cap from 2008.

After 2009 the Stars and Stripes are pretty much Chinese unless you strike gold on the surface of Mars. Keep an eye out on eBay for them if you want.

Yea, the one with 2 panels dosnt come in 7 1/4. And its kind of Ironic that the stars + stripes are made in China XD

Oh, and this one?

Have you hit up ebay? You can find some there on occasion. Just be careful you don't get a fake one.

I bought a couple from the first season where they were blue (2008?). I think they are kind of cool in that color but then quickly went downhill from there. I hope they either go back to the US flag sidepatch this year or have version where keep the team colors but just make the logo in red/white/blue. It looks silly, for example, to see Oakland in an all red/white/blue cap.

My favorite was 2009 (all red). Least favorite was 2010 (all white). They're hit or miss to me...

The only reason i ended up getting the two stars and stripes for the giants was because they were on sale at the ballpark for 9.99 after it was announced they wouLd wear the flag patch hats in 2011. The, match with other stuff i own (most of my clothes is either black or orange) but as for on field, eh i never really cared for them
