What you see pictured above from the Twitter universe is a first look at the 2012 Stars & Stripe caps to first be worn during games upcoming on Memorial Day weekend.
The team logo embroidery includes a digital-camouflage look, and overall, we do like it better than this model, and this model, but wish that teams simply wore a U.S. flag patch for those games and be done with it.
Speaking of Caps: Some pretty interesting one's in the store right now including a Philadelphia Firebirds snap-back with the NAHL logo on the side, a Philadelphia Stars model from the USFL days, plus Phillies fitted caps for the years 1926 and 1942. See more on our Facebook page here.
When will it happen-an update: Still no Marlins orange cap Tuesday night against Houston as the team has hit the 30-games played ledger.
In-Store Event: We’re looking forward to welcoming you to tomorrow night’s second installment of Pro League Authentics “Jersey as Art” four-part series. On the agenda are rare and unique flannel baseball jerseys, a look at baseball’s history in Philadelphia, and an interesting display of virtually all of the commemorative patches worn by the 30 MLB teams.
The event is from 6-8 pm at the store located at 137. S. 13th Street (between Walnut/Sansom) in Center City Philadelphia. You’re invited to stop by, enjoy the uniform talk, light refreshments, and a discount on all in-store MLB authentic merchandise.
Our next event this summer will be a “can’t miss” date, and tentatively we’re looking at Thursday July 19. MLB Game Worn Jerseys of the Double Knit Era author Bill Henderson will be with us to celebrate the release of the latest (2012) edition of his must-have, Bible of modern baseball jersey information. The last release of Bill’s work was in 2009, so we’re looking forward to the update.
