I considered jumping back in to Pacific Coast League caps for this week's missive but last week's Australia/birthday post got me thinking that the early part of the year is the perfect time to jump into a new theme. And what better way to celebrate a new theme than by showcasing the cap of a brand new team for 2020?
By my count this Norwich Sea Unicorns cap is the 19th unique Brandiose design that I've featured here but this one is extra special for a few reasons, the first being that my wife just gifted this to me for my birthday. The second big draw to this hat is that I have a keen appreciation of nautical themes, especially unicorns and goes double for narwhals!
After doing a recent survey of my collection, I noticed that I've got a few NY-Penn League teams on ice that I haven't written about so make sure to come back regularly over the next few weeks so you don't miss a thing!
In closing, I would be remiss if I didn't share with you fine folks a link that…
It's been just about a year since my last birthday post which means…it's time for another one! So, just like last year I'm shining the spotlight on Australia as we both bask in the glory that is January 26 however this time the cap worn by the Australian National Team is from the 2017 World Baseball Classic.
Something I don't discuss much (but you probably already know all about) is the "Labels" section in the sidebar of the site pages is super helpful, especially if you'd like to peruse caps that share metadata with the current cap you're viewing. For example if you clicked on the "World Baseball Classic" label, you'll see the 2017 US National Team cap!
I know I made it easy for you by linking to the page just then but it's almost my birthday so I'm feeling super generous and helpful! At any rate, I hope you enjoy the photos of the cap worn by the 2017 National Team of my perhaps-someday home country of Australia!
Instead of counting down the days until pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training facilities as we normally would around this time of year, the baseball world has been consumed by the repercussions of the Houston Astros sign stealing scandal and I've been doing my best to abstain from painting broad strokes with my judgement brush.
The "Total Recall" outcome is something that I'm not going to actively back or root against but if it ends up happening, trolling the Dodgers would almost become too easy as Giants fans would have more material to work with than we ever had before.
