Okay New Era Pro experts. This person wants 200 bones on Ebay for this St. Louis Cardinals hat.
I have never seen anything like this. Do you think this is an elaborate fake? The stitching on the brim looks like it's Chinese to me. What do you think?

It seems like an early coop collection New Era did in the late 70's/early 80's . Retail replicas seems to have the squarish brim. I do have a 77 Giants replica with the same characteristics and I've seen a few of those replicas on ebay as well.

It's definitely a real hat from the 70's or 80's, no way there would be a fake that elaborately done with the leather sweatband and correct tagging

Jesus, that Astros cap looks downright nasty. I can't imagine letting that thing touch my head.

Then again, this photo he chose to upload with the listing is rather persuasive:

Logo quite obvious.

Then there's the tags that are in the wrong order.
https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F202209252115

Two of the more obvious miscues.

^ can we assume this to be in the same fake family, Guy gadbois?

I was under the impression that this designed stopped in 2006 prior to poly existing. This seller has it marked as wool but it has a black sweatband and grey under (both don't have the ne embossed bottom button cap)., As well as other elements making it look like a 2007-curent era.

Lots of danger signs on that one. You're right that the material/sweatband/underbrim are all off. Also has the run-on text on the taping that a counterfeit I once bought had. And someone else would need to confirm this but that hologram sticker does not look legit.

Saw this today
https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F183489444579

I thought maybe it was a TBTC type cap but the underside has the wording that doesn't have any spaces and is missing a - sign between ON-FIELD.

Closeups of the poly on that are brutal. Reminds me of the knockoff I bought on eBay when I had just started collecting.
