corridor of caps

I’ve amassed some caps over the years.

Go Sox! Purchased at the souvenir shop across from Fenway Park. MLB model with no adjustment strap.

Go Giants! Purchased at Candlestick Park. The pins are for special games and such (like first interleague game vs. A’s, viewed in Tom’s corporate Tri Valley box [see future cap]).

  1. Didn’t I give you an FU hat from Furman University/foodservice University? I didnt see it listed…they have changed the design now and no longer have hats that just say “FU”…hmmm…perhaps it was my email to them inquiring about buying 100 of them ’cause I “liked the FU”. Hold on to the TVG hat…it will be a collectors item someday, since my management team drove them into Chapter 7 bankrupcy and they were liqidated in 2002. Too bad.


  2. W has several FU hats. One light winter toboggan cap (I bought two because Tommy-tom stole my first one) that is my favorite from late October to early March. It is reversable – gray with a purple interlaced FU on one side and purple with a gray interlaced FU on the other. And a couple of baseball type FU hats – white with a purple FU. Now that I know Marc is a hat collector, an FU is in his future. What a way to advertise for gifts…
