Toronto Blue Jays New Era Hat

I’m not much of a fitted hat collector but when I saw this hat online I knew I had to get it.  It is the Toronto Blue Jays 1992 World Series retro hat from New Era.  It features a World Series patch on the left side.  The brim is grey, the side panels are blue, and the front is white and features the Blue Jays logo from the early 90’s.  I used to own so many versions of this hat when I was a kid.  My favorite part of this hat is the World Series patch, which uses gold thread.
Everything about this hat is perfect but there are some issues I can nitpick about.  I would have preferred it if it was made out of wool instead of polyester, if it was made in the USA instead of China, and if the MLB logo featured some red highlights.  But honestly, those issues don’t really bother me because this is still an excellent hat regardless.  New Era has always impressed me with the quality of their hats.  While they can be very expensive, in the long run they’ll last you a long time and take a beating which makes it worth the money.
This is a must have hat if you grew up in this city and still remember the good old days.  Just mentioning names like Cito, Robbie, Carter and other members of that team brings goose bumps to me.  The blue is so vibrant you can wear it with any casual outfit like a grey or black sweater, and jeans.  I plan to wear mine when it’s colder outside because of how hot these hats can get.  This is a very awesome hat and I’m very happy I bought it.
