Baseball caps: how many do you have Login/Join

As I'm watching the beginning weekend of EPL and the cameras pan the crowds, I notice what, at least I think, an American trend: baseball caps.

Although not all baseball related, the style is truly Americana. So, I got to thinking of how many I have. Like guns, I don't know if I've ever counted them, but taking a guess I'd say I had over 10. How about you?

I usually only keep five or six around and in rotation at a time. I wear one nearly every day so they tend to either wear out or get sweat/oil stains fairly quickly. I haven't figured out a good way to wash them without shrinking or otherwise ruining them so they don't last long around here.

A dozen or so. Have 2 that I wear most of the time. My favorite is the one that I designed to celebrate my classes 50th reunion. I have a nice white one with some very discrete Coors Light mountains that I wore on vacation in June. I also have one NASCAR hat that I reserve for races.

I only wear 5 or 6 on a regular basis.

However, I own hundreds. I have a few dozen project caps from work that I'll keep for decades as they have good memories.

I get a lot of freebies from vendors and I save them for painting, yard work, etc.

One or two. My hair is so thick that if I wear hats it gives me a headache

Four. I have a big head (Size 8), so I have to special-order my hats. As a result, I only have a handful of ballcaps.

Standard ballcaps don't fit me, so I don't have that pile of free ballcaps that most people have collected over the years. All the normal caps I've ever received have either been given away or tossed out. "One Size Fits Most" doesn't fit me.

I most often wear the USS Reagan one these days, shock and awe for all the AF geeks and geekettes around here who can't imagine landing on a moving 1,000' long runway with no golf course.

When you had the votes, we did things your way. Now, we have the votes and you will be doing things our way. This lesson in political reality from Lyndon B. Johnson

"Some things are apparent. Where government moves in, community retreats, civil society disintegrates and our ability to control our own destiny atrophies. The result is: families under siege; war in the streets; unapologetic expropriation of property; the precipitous decline of the rule of law; the rapid rise of corruption; the loss of civility and the triumph of deceit. The result is a debased, debauched culture which finds moral depravity entertaining and virtue contemptible." - Justice Janice Rogers Brown

I'd guess about 30. I wear hats often, especially when outside in the sun (helps prevent those pesky actinic keratosis on the scalp)and at the gym or other times I don't want to worry about my hair going crazy. Of the ones I've got, only about 5 are worn on a regular basis.

All my "baseball caps" are from various firearm related vendors/manufacturers. Probably 20 or so. Wear the SIG SAUER cap, when I go running. Big Grin

I'm down to around 50 or so. Just got rid of a bunch - donated to different organizations in the area.

Who would want a used baseball cap? That's like wearing someone else's underwear.

10 to 15. Mostly for golf but I favor just one. And it's needing a replacement soon.

I would like to find a good source for the type that I like. Caps without the button on top. I hate the button. It creates an uncomfortable pressure "hot spot" when I use a headset, as in David Clark for flying, or Peltor for shooting.

I also prefer plain caps, without advertising material. I don't really want to walk around with a billboard on my noggin.

3.One is new for the Nats, one of my son's former high school team, and the third is a former travel baseball team hat that is sweat stained and kind of nasty at this point. I wear that one for yard work.

I have a couple dozen billed 'trucker hats', none of which relate to any kind of ball game

That would work, but two problems:
  1. I already have a fairly pricey Peltor headset (P6). Ball caps are way cheaper than a new headset. If I can find the type caps I'm looking for.

  2. That doesn't solve the aviation headset problem. Earmuff type headsets, noise cancelling, with a microphone. Like this:

I have over 50 and just let the 2 gand boys walk off with a dozen each. So more than I will wear out.
