Having said that, as a cap collector, the beginning of a new baseball season is one of my favorite times of the year! So many new minor league logos appear, and of course there are a handful that I want. So far I've gotten a couple of the new logos (Bakersfield, Asheville, etc) and I think they are awesome. The Blaze cap is one of my very favorites. But with lids.com being the best source for a wide range of minor league caps, I decided to catch up on some of the logos I've neglected to get over the past couple of seasons. So, without further adieu, here are my latest minor league acquisitions:
|Durham Bulls. Triple-A International League affiliate of the Tampa Bay Rays. Obviously, a classic since 1988 thanks to the movie "Bull Durham," but at the same time, just an awesome looking cap.|
|Quad Cities River Bandits. Midwest League (single A) affiliate of the Cardinals. They have a cool raccoon logo on their home cap, but I have a soft spot for simple letter logos, which is why I chose to get their road cap.|
|Tacoma Rainiers. Pacific Coast League (AAA) affiliate of the Seattle Mariners. I have one other Rainiers cap that I like better than this one, but I just have a feeling this one will grow on me.|
|A customer came into my store about a month ago wearing this cap and I thought it was time to get off the fence and get this cap. I've never been a fan of the cartoonish bird, but this is the Baltimore Orioles cap of my youth, and since I've been acquiring other Cooperstown caps from that era, I figured I'd have to get it eventually.|
So there you have it. All caught up. I'd love to hear any thoughts on my latest, or anything anyone has to say about a favorite cap. Maybe someday I can get 10,000 page views like my friend Matt at The Fitted Diaries. (haha) He is sort of my inspiration for this blog. Always nice to know there are others out there obsessed with the fitteds.
So coming soon I'll feature another of my favorite teams and the reasons why I like them. I missed some opportunities, such as Manchester United winning its 19th league title. Along with UConn, they are the team I do root for that doesn't suck. But hey, the Rockies are starting to play well again, Ricky Rubio is coming to Minnesota to play for the Wolves, and the Sens are... well, the draft is tonight, so we'll see. Until next time...
Oh, and snapbacks still suck.
