Those tags are from the late 90s, probably 97 to 99. Kool Herc, if you have a red stars and stripes Rays with those tags then something ain't right! Shocked

ha oops sorry, I wasnt at home and was just going on memory and turns out I was confused with my black/purple rays hat (tags are the same apart from the tag on the left which is a Diamond collection tag.)

The tags on the red stars and stripes hat are white in color but similar in style to the current tags.

They both look fake, on the last, the batterman looks funky and the logo on the front looks off. I would advise against buying it. As well as the Indians cap, the logo seems off-center and the Chief Wahoo logo looks way too big, compared to other fashion caps, it's still too big. It's too long. the metal squatchee inside does not have the New Era logo which is another red flag.

I'd completely advise against both.

The logos look a little off to me- I would vote fake.

@insomniac I feel like that would be a good topic for your blog. How to really determine a fake from a legit hat. People always talk about how one thing is crooked or how the sizing is off so it must be fake but there's always gonna be imperfections with these hand made hats

Yeah, I'd pass, they look fishy, especially since they're asking what would be full price. Buy one from Lids or New Era, if possible.

Yes.

Legit tagging, I have more than a few with that tagging that I bought in Cooperstown.

hi legends,

Just wondering if you can let me know if this LA cap is legit please?

The inside tags look different, especially the blue NE tag.

Thank you again
