Default What is YOUR go-to Sox cap?

I tend to wear Sox caps a lot during the season. What is YOUR Sox cap of choice?

For years I had an old beat-up adjustable one (it looks a lot like the President's).

Back in '09 I bought one of these and wore it constantly:


The only problem was that somehow it faded into a navy blue. Quickly. So, after this past season ended I decided it was time for a new cap.

MLB.com was running a "buy one cap, get one 50% off" last week so I ordered one of the authentic New Era caps as well as this throwback. Since it's ALREADY blue I don't have to worry about this one fading in the same way...:


My authentic New Era one is a little big (need to send back for a smaller size; [New Era must have really inconsistent sizes because I have a Giants cap that's the same size but much tighter on the my head]) and I also find that they tend to fit non-big leaguers' heads funny, so the above cap will probably end up being my go-to.

I have caps marking the period 51-63, 71-75 and the current one.

I prefer the red 72 one myself.

Right now, it's this Cooperstown collection 1983 hat that I got for my birthday last year, which was cool since I was born in '83.

Before that, it was just a standard normal black one that I wore for years.

My go-to hat is my fitted 1972 red hat. I wore it when we won the Series and it only get worn on special occasions, except this year I wore it at Sunday games. The World Series cap only gets worn when we get back there.

I also sometimes wear a fitted black Sox hat at times, and I also have a fitted 1917 white cap for games in hot weather.

My everyday hat changes from year to year, I like the preworn caps and the two tone adjustable hats with a white front.

Got next year's everyday hat already, a preworn mid 60s block letter SOX dark navy adjustable from '47 Twins.

I have about a dozen Sox caps in my closet. I used to love the fitted caps, but I've found they shrink and stain after so many times being worn to the park. My '59 Sox American Needle and '05 World Series hat fit a bit more snuggly than they used to, so they don't get as much wear. I bought a low-crown fitted 5950 in 2010, and that's never recovered from the sweat stains incurred on Frank Thomas Tribute Day when I sat in the upper left field corner.

Top three right now are the 2003-2006 BP hat, the '47 Twins diamond-sox cap, and the '47 Twins white panel/sox logo cap. All three caps I've rinsed off with soap and water at various points, and they always come out feeling and looking great. The '47 Twins hats are moving up the list. There are a couple more I'd like to pick up someday, but Lids.com seems to be out of certain sizes.

I only have one, current style, New Era '47 Brand with the soft panels in the front. It's so worn and beaten up that it's essentially gray.

My "go to" White Sox caps deserve a personal ranking....

#3 the '59 style
#2 the '69/'70 style (soft blue)

My #1 the '64-'68 style (navy blue)

All of 'em kinda give me that 'warm and fuzzy' feeling.

Go Sox!
Bob

Post 1967 adjustable white block letter

My only cap is the 1967 cotton adjustable white block letter cap. It is the only one for me.

I just bought the 59 and blue 64 hats. They are going to be my going to the park hats this year. I also wear the late 80's cursive C and the 83 hat a lot. Wear the black on occasion. That new BP hat with the silver rim is going in my collection once it comes out too. I've been looking for a silver bill hat for the Sox. I have the red version of the hat you got pictured above, I rarely wear it, it is american needle and 1931 on it. I looked it up, they were truly terrible that year. Also have 2 green fitted I never wear.
