I like it. It looks like the Washington Senators caps from '63-'67.

I missed the two of the three 'lines' on the rear of the cap and figured they had botched the recreation. A top view would be helpful with this design. But you're right, now that I see what they were going for it's not bad. I still prefer their white logo with red outline myself as the red logo/white outline look is fairly common. Lose the 'lines' (do they have a more technical name?) and this looks very similar to the Cards navy road cap.

It's also my understanding that any special features like these 'lines' mean the cap is 100% done in China. This is just a DE that's always gonna be Chino anyway of course but it's a shame to think that it could never get a proper poly release.

Yet another poor Nats cap. All they need to do is bring back the solid navy and carbon copies of the old Stars and Stripes designs for special dates and they'd have a nice set. No idea why they're making things so difficult for themselves.


The Nats have all sorts of uniform problems. Like the team and stadium, their branding is just soooo generic.

It doesn't really fit with the rest of the set, like a lot of the Nats pieces, but I LOVE that new BP with the piping. That's beautiful.

I love it. That was one of my favorite Senators caps and it is a nice nod to them.

There are not designs on the inside this year. I grabbed a Cubs one a few days ago. On the plus side they removed 2 of the 3 inside tags, which is a definite upgrade since the outline of the tags can show through on the DE material. The authentic logo and size are printed onto the sweat band.

Thanks! That sucks as I was a fan of that. Added so much more to the cap last year. Separated it from the BP caps besides having the patch

Why do little cool things your customers like when you can cheap out, iron a patch on and still sell them out? It's the NE way
