    Possible like the '87 and it may just be me, but I can't seem to find the Red Sox picture anywhere. The New Era site lists one for every team except the Red Sox? Kinda odd...

    Thanks,

    Red Sox appears to be made in a 2017 style bill only, at least that's the only red sox cap listed when you select Red Sox in the team sort feature of the sales site.


    I hate the continued destruction of the 1987 Topps design. ABC killed Millionaire with overexposure, A&E is likely killing LivePD with overexposure, Topps is killing 1987 Topps with all the overexposure and reprints of that design.


    $34 is pretty pricey for a snapback cap considering I get fitted on-field authentic new era 59/50's for that price.

    Don't like that they're snapbacks.

    I'll definitely pass. Too many different caps nowadays with one for every holiday, post season, spring training, etc.

    Up here in the Toronto area, the prices have really jumped since last year too. Basic home/away/BP fitted are $45.99 Cdn, while any special lids are $52.99 Cdn.

    Exactly what I was finding-so weird to just leave the Red Sox out.

    And I agree-SnapBack is weird choice but I guess appropriate with the retro look.

    Thanks,

    I get it that there are a lot of caps and I normally ignore models that aren't field replicas. This is based on a baseball card and I cannot pass it up.

    I was thinking Topps and New Era are so unsure of the idea that they created one-size-fits-most snapbacks so they aren't stuck manufacturing a billion fitted-cap SKUs for all the different teams/hat styles/hat sizes and have a million leftover hats if sales suck.

    Glad I'm not in the apparel industry - it would be awful to figure out what sizes/styles to make so you aren't left with a lot of unsold merchandise because the style wasn't well received or you overproduced sizes that people aren't wearing.

    Ugh. Or should I say ugly. No need to try to reinvent the wheel.

    Considering that my last five hats have cost me a total of $5, I don't think I'll pick one up.

    But if I wanted to drop money on a hat, I'd want a "future stars" logo on my 87 design.

    Otherwise it's just another hat.

    If I saw someone wearing a baseball cap with a woodgrain brim, I wouldn't equate it as being an '87 Topps version, unless I happened to catch the Topps logo on the side, and then it still might not hit me. And I bought more '87 Topps than any other cards as a kid.

    The other brim styles that emulate Topps designs just look ugly.

    As gt2590 wrote, good idea gone bad. And much too expensive, especially for snapbacks.

    Interesting that the poll is unanimous 9-0 disliking them, but a couple of people in this thread do like them.
