5950 MLB Script Fitteds


You know what, After many failed attempts at designing a fitted with script lettering, you are coming close to almost getting it right this time. However, why did you leave out many MLB teams, including the Mariners??? Don’t y’all know that a “Seattle” version would murk a lot of the ones you got on the website now (like why do you have multiple Astros colorways in this design)? Just effing release it already. We’ll buy it. At least I would. And don’t eff up the colorways!!!

Missed Opportunity, Part 2


Nevermind that this Mariners fitted has a throwback logo – you can get those at the Mariners Team Store anytime. What’s appealing to me is the green underbill and white sweatband! Yes, I know, black sweatbands are in obviously because of the white headbands yellowing and staining over time, but nowadays this style is becoming harder and harder to find. Waiting patiently for this to come back into stock in a size 8, though. *Crosses fingers*

I’m assuming this is from New Era’s Cooperstown Collection. Good luck finding your favorite team in this style and make!

Missed Opportunity, Part 1



I have a large fitted collection, but every now and then there are those fitteds that go under my radar. So now, I present my very own fitted late pass. These “808 ALL DAY” fitteds were released a couple months ago in Hawaii, and were even available via phone orders. Dammit. Oh well. If anyone reading has this in a size 8, hollerate!

I hope I don’t make these “Missed Opportunity” posts too often 😉

Star Wars “Big Face” Caps

ABG debuts their Star Wars Big Face line at


Boba Fett

Darth Vader

Product Review: Although the effort was made to include detailed stitching and large bold imagery, these are stretch fitted hats which are a complete turn-off to me and to the hundreds of fitted hat connoisseurs around the world. Thus, this stretch fitted by default would make this a kids/youth fashion hat. Wake up, New Era, and release some SW 59Fiftys! Here’s a free idea: make a limited edition Ewok 59Fifty, complete with faux fur! I got other ideas but y’all would have to pay me.

New Super Mario Bros. to see a holiday 2009 release

Nintendo kicked off their E3 2009 press conference with the announcement of The New Super Mario Bros. Wii, afour-player co-operative take on classic 2D Mario gameplay.

It was almost a perfect surprise, but close enough. The New Super Mario Bros. Wii combines the classic 2D gameplay of the original Super Mario Bros. with four-player co-operative play to create a new Mario experience. Remember watching your friends play the game on the NES? Imagine being able to join in, with a scaling screen. It’s like four swords, but with 2D Mario!

The New Super Mario Bros. Wii will be available this Holiday season.
