The Kelly green Miller Lite hats were a great promotion item and I'm glad to add it to my collection. It got me thinking of how many White Sox hats I've owned in my life. Here's the 13 I came up with, I'll probably think of some more that have been lost or stolen over the years.

1. Late 90's red and blue fitted
2. Late 90's red and blue adjustable
3. Retro 1906 hat
4. 1959 hat
5. 1926 hat
6. 1980's SOX hat
7. tan current hat
8. fitted current black hat
9. adjustable current black hat
10. 1949 hat
11. 1960 blue hat
12. Original "St. Patrick's Day" hat from spring training in 1998(?)
13. Miller half way to St. Patty's day giveaway hat

I have 2 of the world series champs hat, a New Era fitted black Sox hat (with the sleerve patch on the back), Cooperstown 1977 road hat and the current "official hat"... used to have a 1983 home hat and the late 80s "C" hat... so I guess that would make 7. :(: I need to work on my Sox hat collection. :cool:

At the moment I'd say I have about a dozen. I have a few favorites, though, so I normally rotate between like 3 or 4 unless a special occasion calls for it.

Right now I have the navy blue SOX hat which was worn in the shorts era. I just have it for decoration in my office.

I also have a standard black one but it's not the official hat, it's an adjustable khaki one.

In the past, I had one just like that one, only the front was white and the logo was black. I also had the 83 official cap back in 03 when that was all the rage. Before that, I had a charcoal grey suede-ish hat with a blue logo. Kind of ridiculous, but for the time I thought it was pretty cool.

And that's it. I've actually never owned an official, current fitted hat in my life now that I think about it.

I usually just have one at a time. I wear it till the kids say, "Dad you can't wear that hat anymore." Then I get another one. :smile: I usually go through 2 a season.

I also bought all the locker room hats from the series and saved them.

I never used to wear hats, until I discovered in about 2001 how they kept the sun away and kept my hair contained, if it was long enough. So I missed a lot of years of hat collecting!

Hats I wear regularly:
-Black BP hat with silver brim
-all black ALCS hat
-really faded "e" hat

Hats I wear occasionally if I want something different:
-red S-o-x hat from earlier this summer, with the Pontiac logo on back
-05 Division Series hat
-83 hat
-khaki ALCS hat
-brown and white spring training hat

Hats that I never wear because they don't fit my fathead:
-official World Series hat
-green St. Patrick's day hat, from 04
-red early 70s hat
-blue late 60s hat
-several other various giveaway hats

Way too many to count - One hat every season of the standard black hat since the year before Comiskey closed. I had tons of other hats and of course, the plastic batting helmets as a kid back to the early 70s. I miss the blue bats on bat day!

Current set:

Red Early 70s wool fitted - hat of choice (I wore it when they won the series!)
Kelly Green New Era adjustable
1917? white pinstriped fitted
Standard black fitted
El-cheapo standard black adjustable with huge SOX logo
Astros vs. White Sox logos World Series cap
Black and silver BP hat, adjustable
Late 80's navy blue fitted
WS locker room cap (in storage - never to be worn)

I'm looking for a nice secondary (sock/diamond) logo hat. The ones at Grandstand have the logo a little too small, and a 1959 fitted is my next retro cap.

Just a fitted version of the current model, although I haven't worn it since 1995 and haven't seen it since 2001.

And I'm still waiting for the day they make that 1993 hat.

I have at least 10 I can think of off the top of my head. (ha ha ha no pun intended) There's only 2 or 3 I wear on a regular basis though...game worn BP cap, AL champs black khaki hat and a really ratty fitted one I've been sporting for like 6 years.

and this is in "what's the score" WHY?

"What's the Score is to hold baseball posts otherwise cluttering Sox Clubhouse and Talking Baseball. If it's baseball and it's nonsense, it goes here."

I originally posted it in "What's the Score" because I figured this didn't really have anything to do with White Sox baseball, per se, and didn't want to put a post in Sox Clubhouse that may not have belonged. Thanks to the mods for moving it to the Sox Clubhouse.

One: the 1964 Blue cap

Looking to get the blue 1932? cap with "Sox" in red on the diagonal with a bat through the "o".

That would make two...

Navy blue Sox from late 70s/early 80s.

Red, white, and blue from '83.

Einhorn "E" cap.

I wear 'em until I lose them, and I haven't lost many, as you can see!

Off the top of my head (no pun intended):

2 current caps
1 replica 1959 hat which I'm wearing right now
1 replica red 1970s hat
1 1983 hat

All of my hats have been adjustable. I cannot find fitted ones big enough for my melon.

too lazy to sit and list them all, but counting whats on my wall (I made a hat section over the bed on the wood mantel) Theres 23 sox hats and about 14 other hats (college teams, I have a few nationals hats, and one that looks like a Cow I got from a gas station in wisconsin coming home from minnesota). I know Im missing a ton, so im going to say right now in my house theres probably 40-42 missing, in my lifetime is a lot more. I have been wearing hats since I was about 4.

My Girlfriend owns a good 10-20 hats also, so put the domeshot household down for 55.

I had one of those once. Looks strange now.

I pretty much stick to the standard black hats. When I wear one out I get a new one.

I have over 300 on display! Of course every official logo the team has had that I am aware of (although I need to find that early 70's Chicago logo with the baby-blue front shown in one of the posts above). Just about every color. In the greens alone I have at least lime green, neon green, forest green, olive green and kelly green (including a newly acquired kelly green one from last Friday night's game). I like the give-away hats with sponsor logos. plus being free is always nice. It would be interesting to make a list one day of the specific hats I have.
ChetChat, you're welcome for the hat last Friday. I had a replacement w/in 10 minutes :)

Impressive collection there dirty. I probably have between 50-100 Sox hats, and tons of other ones. Actually it's about time to "re-inventory" because I'm running out of room to store them.

That works too... gives the place a theme to bind everything together. I hate when the hats start to get dusty. I like them to be pristine.

BTW: the baby blue 1970s hat came from eBay. It's so bad it's good. It popped up for auction one day and I just had to have it or it would have killed me. Thanks to that hat, I'm still alive today! :redneck
