In the days before professional sports really caught on to the potential of merchandising, a prominent Yankees official was said to have remarked something to the effect of not wanting to see every other kid on the street wearing a Yankees hat. Obviously, being the classic, American franchise that the Yankees are, that didn’t quite work out. Since then, the Yankees hat has become a staple in the streets, establishing its own sub-culture, with thousands of people all over the world sporting them daily.
After then-obscure cap makers New Era placed an advertisement in a 1978 issue of The Sporting News, making the official on-field, MLB cap available to the general public for the first time, they immediately became a fixture in the American landscape. Naturally, there is one hat that stands out above all of the others. With 27 World Series rings, 40 pennants and the captivating influence of the Big Apple, the New York Yankees interlocking ‘NY’ emblem has gone global.
Introducing the 59Fifty Yankees Rhinestone hat, New Era presents a glitz and glamorized iteration of the world’s most perfected baseball cap for the most historically successful baseball team of all time. Coming in Scarlet Gold, White Gold, and Black Gold, each cap exudes class with a bit of pizazz, the perfect accessory to finish out the season, whether you're losing sleep over the team's middle relief pitchers, or if you think that Whitey Ford was a pick up truck.
