Hello.

So I went to buy a New Era fitted on field cardinals cap from a pretty damn legit looking store called Culture Kings in Sydney.

But after getting home and comparing it with my LA Dodgers on field cap I bought in 2011, I found some alarming differences. Here they are:

The font on my new cap is smaller and seems to be "chipped off"








The lettering is chipped or cut here





And this is my old Dodger cap I bought in 2011:








Is my new cap a counterfeit?

Also here are other pics of the cap


















Also the "Major League Baseball" on the left of the sticker on the bill has TM while most I see on google images have no TM.

This the website of the store I bought it from

www.culturekings.com.au
It's a very huge store in Sydney.

Edit:

I have found caps from the 2011 season in my collection that have a TM on the MLB Cool Base sticker, I can't find any other signs telling me that the cap is fake. I think it's a solid cap.

Yeah, I wouldn't worry about that. I edited my post above, I found caps in my collection with the TM on them.

The tape in the cap can fade easily, I wouldn't sweat for a second about that.

Oh ok!! Phew that tools load off my chest.

I'm still going to have to go back though, bc I usually wear 7 3/8 but this cardinals cap is the first USA and it seems smaller. So I might have to see if they got a 7 1/2.

I just wanted to tell you that the made in china Dodgers cap, which I had since 2011doesn't have any fading, whereas the made in USA Cardinals cap that I bought today has the fading and chipping.

Just so i jnow your looking at the same stuff i am, This is SOME of the chipping I'm talking about (circled in red):

I have a US made Atlanta Braves cap purchased directly from the flagship store in Buffalo and the inside lettering is exactly the same as that. I wouldn't be worried about it.

This hat is legit and yes the China made hats tend to run a size bigger than the made in the USA hats.
