1921 New York Giants "Roman Pro Cap Co." Retro

Apologies for taking last week off as a last minute trip came up but hopefully you'll appreciate that I'm back fully-charged this week. I also have a very special cap to share with you good folks as I take time to reflect upon the 20th anniversary commemoration of the September 11 attack on the World Trade Center in New York City.

Selecting a New York Yankees or New York Mets cap might seem like the obvious choice to honor New York City for this week's Fresh Fitted Friday post however I feel a City team needs to be represented. Although the Yankees and the Mets each played a few seasons at the Polo Grounds, the New York Giants are the true inhabitants of that glorious Manhattan stadium.  

I'm not exactly certain what year the Roman Pro Cap Co. produced this retro version of the cap the New York Giants wore a century ago but if you'd like to take a general stroll down Cap Memory Lane, I recommending clicking this link for a timeline of the New York Giants cap history over at the ever-useful and informative "MLB Collectors" site. 

I love everything about this cap. The pinstripes, dark green undervisor and leather sweatband are absolutely incredible.

I know that a lot is being written and said about the tragic events that occurred on 9/11 and all I want to add is that trauma is real, no matter how much time has passed. If you find that you are struggling physically and/or mentally, I recommend checking out the 9/11 Resource Guide on Help is out there and no one should have to suffer through pain alone.

This week's Fresh Fitted Friday selection is not going on the Trading Block however please don't 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.
