I bought this hat at an outlet when I saw it on clearance. The price was right, it fit perfect, and I didn’t have an A’s fitted in my collection. It wasn’t until I got home that I realized one thing; the lip on the brim didn’t fold over the edge. The hat reminds me of the “Turn Ahead The Clock” hats that had the brim flipped over. I called the outlet to see if anyone knew why the brim was like this but nobody knew, except the manager who said they were probably B-Grades. It’s funny to me because I never assumed that New Era would allow B-Grades to be sold in stores. I’m sure most people wouldn’t even care, and to an extent I don’t either because it still has the New Era quality that makes them one of the best hats ever.
