1989-93 Tucson Toros Cap

The big news in the baseball world this past week was Team USA defeating Puerto Rico en route to its first ever World Baseball Classic championship. If you checked out last week's blog, you'd know that I wrote about a Team USA cap and while I'd love to take credit for this feat because I wrote about it, I must doff said cap to the players on that team. 

I wanted to continue to try my luck and give a helpful boost to the University of Arizona during the NCAA tournament. I decided the best way to do this is by writing about a Tucson Toros cap, as Tucson is home to the University of Arizona (which is also where my wife went to college) but sadly the Wildcats were eliminated from the tournament tonight.

Despite the disheartening finish, my wife and her alma mater has lots to be proud of and on top of that, the Grand Canyon State has one more full week of Spring Training ahead of it! Even though I made an active decision to take a break from wearing red hats for the next couple years, this version of the Toros hat is a classic and I hope you enjoy the photos!

I always loved this cap logo that the Toros used from 1989 to 1993 since it reminds me of some of childhood favorites such as Kenny Lofton

It's hard to tell from looking at cards from the era but I know for certain that the team had moved to grey underbrims by 1992, evidence of which can be seen in this card of a crazy-eyed Mickey Brantley...SR!

The crown's material is that meshy material that always reminds me of this Montreal Expos cap that I wrote about which is like, so totally 80's
