1993 Portland Beavers - Fresh Fitted Friday!!!!

I mentioned last week that my usual preference for these blog posts is to go vintage over retro but that I was so impressed with Hat Club's recent releases, I had no choice but to showcase their great work here.

I spent some time going back through older posts to see if there were any consecutive ones featuring retro caps and I couldn't find any so as far as I know, this week's 1993 Portland Beavers goes back-to-back in that regard as well as on the Beavers tip!

At first glance, this logo is pretty busy so you have to appreciate how Hat Club was so faithful to the OG. I especially like that the Beaver is wearing a Beavers hat. Very meta.

Hat Club went with a grey underbrim here, however it's worth noting I've seen a green underbrim on the white version of the 1993 cap. The grey works though so I'm good with it.

The sweatband tags are rarely of any importance on retro caps but I shared a photo of this one because you can see the Made In U.S.A. is showing nicely.


I chose this Pat Howell card to represent this week's hat because he was a member of the 1992 Tidewater Tides before his stint in Portland in 1993 and then played on the Tides again when he rejoined the Mets organization the following season.

If you'd like to do some more reading on Pat Howell, his career was briefly profiled in a blog post over at Greatest 21 Days which is a site I enjoy very much. Check it out when you get a chance!

This cap is not going on the Trading Block however please do not hesitate to reach out if you want any other cap from that list and you are willing to part with any of the hats on my Wish List.

As always, thanks for coming back to read about baseball hat geekery. I've got comments disabled here so if you'd like to discuss a trade or simply just chat about hats, please feel free to connect via the following social sites:
