2006 St. Louis Cardinals World Series Cap - Fresh Fitted Friday!!!!

The second cap in The Great eBay Haul is another one I'm not going to be able to wear. As a fan of the San Francisco Giants it would be reprehensible for me to wear a St. Louis Cardinals cap. I do have some caps of Cardinals minor league affiliates but wearing the hat of such a historical National League rival would be gauche; besides this one's size is 7 1/4 which is too small for me!

The hat's crown and brim are red and I try to avoid the all-red look which is another reason I won't be able to rock this one.

Wool caps with white sweatbands and grey underbrims went away in 2007 however some Tigers players wore prototypes of the polyester caps with black sweatbands and underbrims in the 2006 World Series.

The satin taping with the "Originators of the True Fitted" and "New Era Fits" slogans came about in 2005, as did the "Blue Box" sweatband tags. 

Even though this cap isn't my size, I like having ones from this period in my possession. The "Blue Box" tags on the white sweatband first appeared in 2005 as did the "New Era Fits" and "Originators of the True Fitted" text on the satin taping.
As I said last week, I'm going to be letting go of the hats from the Great eBay Haul that are 7 1/8 and 7 1/4 so this one is going on the Trading Block so please don't hesitate to reach out if you want this or any cap from that list and you are willing to part with any of the hats on my Wish List.

Those are just a few of the caps that I'm on the hunt for but if you have something not listed there that you think I might like, keep in mind it never hurts to ask if I'm interested!
