    This 1993 Indians has a unique wahoo. It has a bit of a navy blue outline and thicker black stitching all around. The earlier wahoos are usually much cleaner looking.

    This 2001 BP cap is actually more of a blue navy than dark navy.

    The earlier flag design is quite unique

    Shout out to a fellow NT member for the small wahoo hookup.

    2017 era Cleveland Indians on field. Flagged. Black under. 100% poly. MUSA with imported materials. Decent build. Fits a bit big, which works for me. Just a tiny bit of fuzz on the crown. I'll turn this into a beater cap quickly. No regrets

    -2001 era Cleveland Indians on field. MUSA. Grey under. 100% wool. Such a better fit and more fuzz and perfection comparing the two.

    - 2008-2012 Kansas City Royals on field. 100% poly. Black under. MUSA. Super soft fuzzy crown. Great era of caps right there. One of the first teams to do powder blue, before this year's recent reintroduction.

    - 2006 era Texas rangers Cooperstown collection cap (based off of their original 1972-1985 design).. No flag. No batterman. Green under. 100% wool. MUSA. I love the Cooperstown caps prior to NE adding the side flag, and moving production to China around 2007. This one has a flat logo and just so very close to being historically perfect. The new Cooperstown caps are close to being trash.

    Pretty much got three of these for the cost of one new on field cap. And considering the meek mill made in China crap above is eBaying for $60-$100, I just don’t know what to say. I’ll let them like their stuff and I’ll continue with these steals. They’re buying one cap. I’m buying 6-8 for the same price.

    not all China made New era hats are crappy, I have enough of a sample size that determined that a long time ago.

    Yo anyone know if this site is legit? I'm assuming it's fake but I'm about to do some research now. They have a few hats that only New Era Cap and Lids had so I don't know.

    I also have a solid sample size. They do get a bad reputation. But for $50+, I'm not even touching MUSA diamond collection grey unders. So the aftermarket price for not just a new era, but one made elsewhere, is where my focus is. Price is a joke for what you get.

    Generally speaking though, there's small things that all add up to an inferior product for overseas made products. Poly/wool material has never been on par with typical Musa. The sweatbands are consistently thinner and add to some discomfort. Crown height and stiffness has always been an issue. There's no comparing the two really. I wouldn't drop retail but I generally don't mind an overseas cap all too much. I can vouch for many of retro custom caps.

    Funny, I saw someone compare one of this years supposed MUSA caps on Twitter. It has all the same components as a made in China cap. The white sweatband sizing band used to vary from MUSA to made overseas. That was one true indicator that the cap was made where it said it was. I wouldn't even doubt that the cap itself is made overseas and the MUSA tag is just thrown on elsewhere.

    Now we have to remember. New era and MLB has an agreement that players caps have to be made in the USA. Derby used to do all components here. Soon, the poly crown and Bill had overseas materials. But atleast the threading, threads, and inner workings were MUSA. Now with the latest Twitter post, the entire caps parts and pieces are from overseas. It's supposedly still put together here. But who really knows.

    @Hahahaha , that site has FSRs of random year caps. Many NFL on fields didn't even come in those sizes. 7 7/8 is a super rarity for NFL, if not impossible. Yet every cap, they have a FSR? Super fake.

    I got one in my cart right now, trying to decide now. $50 for a fitted is crazy.

    I tried like four different sites, basically all under Fanatics. None allow codes.

    I can't do the $50 for a fitted, especially when half the time they fit like ****.

    I'll just keep checking for the next few weeks. Hopefully the one I want is still there.

    qft. Im not dropping $50 on a fitted. I'd wait it out, maybe even buy a used one on ebay or other 2nd hand sites/apps.
    I have a hard time spending $30 on a new fitted. $50 ? no way

    Dr Pepper and fanatics have been running 30% off for the last three years around September through January.

    Text “football” to 21688. Youll get a link and follow the instructions. Go to your local grocery store and take one picture with two bar codes from Dr Pepper 20oz bottles and send it in. Or you can buy the two bottles if you drink Dr Pepper but I don’t soI just take the picture and leave. Can take a few hours or up to 24 hours for you to get the code.

    Code you get has minimal restrictions. I also joined shoprunner through the fanatics site to get two day free shipping.

    Went to the store, code came back in like 30 seconds. Just grabbed two hats with the shop runner shipping. $65 shipped for both ain't too bad.

    Damn, just seen Macy’s restocked this other fitted I want. How often they do sales?
