Just for the record, the Padres taco bell caps I got from Lids were indeed USA made.

Also, there are two easy ways to tell the difference between USA made and China. The Chinese versions use an overlapped logo and a tubular strip of orange fabric between the border of the bell. The USA version has an interlocked logo and orange soutache along the border of the bell.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Baltimore-Orioles-New-Era-1992-Camden-Yards-25th-Anniversary-59Fifty-Fitted-Hat-/272773053096

This came up in my saved Ebay O's search. Looks exactly like the caps Camden Yards has been selling only with a OPACY 25th anniversary patch included. Haven't seen these anywhere else online this year with or without the patch. The seller also has the current O's home cap with the OPACY patch.

The listing includes some great closeups of both the patch and logo. It's a really nice patch IMO. I'm almost tempted to buy two and do some flag removal and patch transplanting.

That looks nice. I wonder if that will be an on-field at some point this year...

Looks like August 19 will be the day. Not sure if the on-fields will have the patch though.

Unless you want the side patch, there is plenty of deadstock on eBay. The cap wasn't retired until the last couple of years (someone on here probably knows exactly when), so it's relatively easy to find.

I was looking for the side patch, is it going to be released like a Tbtc or is it like the Pete rose hat that doesn't seem to have been released to the public.

Fanatics has the White Sox and Indians up for Saturday's 1917 TBTC game.

CHI: http://www.fanatics.com/MLB_Chicago_White_Sox_Hats/Chicago_White_Sox_New_Era_1917_Turn_Back_the_Clock_59FIFTY_Fitted_Hat_-_White

CLE: http://www.fanatics.com/MLB_Cleveland_Indians_Hats/Cleveland_Indians_New_Era_1917_Turn_Back_the_Clock_59FIFTY_Fitted_Hat_-_Navy

While the C on the Indians hat is WAAAAYYY too big, they did get one very small detail correct, the white piping does not continue below the C.

The White Sox listing says it is made in the USA. Could that be true?

I don't think they could have made the C any larger on the Tribe hat. I'm sure that is exactly how they were worn in 1917.

Pretty sure a TBTC or Negro League cap from earlier this year had piping and was made in the USA. So it would seem possible at least.

^ those are supposed to be USA-made.

Hat Guru talked about it on his premium subscription-based snapchat the other day.

His connection sucked though. I kept getting a studdering feed.

Go to bed and dream of all the ways you hate hats now.

I have a MUSA wool version of the White Sox from years back that's new with tags still on it. It doesn't have the red piping just blue all around but if you're interested I'd be willing to part with it.
