The cap of Altoona Curve, the Pirates’ Double-A team. Normal on the outside but inside-out, it’s a rally cap with the colour and eyes of team mascot, Al Tuna. It’s okay to be jealous. Many thanks to Tyler Maun.

My new Winnipeg Whips hat. I love Ebbets Field Flannels hats, they are awesome. What could be better than a 1970s minor league Expos affiliate hat?
