Memorial Day is often considered the unofficial start of summer and typically features days full of family gatherings and soaking in the warm weather. However, this holiday is much more than an extra day off of work. Memorial Day was created to recognize and show reverence for the American men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice while serving our country. At Lids, we honor those who have fallen while serving in our military with these new Memorial Day inspired collections.
New Era Memorial Day 59FIFTY
The Memorial Day Collection is part of MLB’s recognition of veterans, active military and military families. Keeping with tradition, MLB players will wear the Memorial Day 59FIFTY hat by New Era on-field during games played on Memorial Day. Each year New Era introduces a new camouflage inspired design, and MLB donates all of its licensed royalties from the sales of these caps to charities that support programs for service men and women, veterans and their families. This fitted hat features a dark camo pattern on top with an olive green bill. The five stars on the right side represent the five branches of the United States armed forces.
Majestic Memorial Day Cool Base Jerseys
Along with the Memorial Day hats, when you purchase a Memorial Day Majestic baseball jersey, proceeds from the licensed royalties will be donated to charities focused on programs for service members. Wear what the players will be wearing on-field this Memorial Day with the MLB Memorial Day Jerseys by Majestic. All jerseys have camo inspired green on their logos and numbers and 5 stars adorned on the right sleeve.
Operation Hat Trick
If you’d rather wear a more relaxed dad hat that also contributes to a good cause, 47’s Operation Hat Trick is back with all new designs. Operation Hat Trick is an organization that raises awareness to support the recovery of wounded service members and veterans. Proceeds from OHT products go directly to selected organizations that help their mission. Operation Hat Trick aims to make sure no wounded service member falls through the cracks and is able to get the care they need. This year’s caps play with different camo patterns and come adorned with an American flag prominently displayed on the front.
If you want to create an even more customized tribute to our military, you can use Custom Zone by Lids to personalize any of our Memorial Day hats, or get a military themed graphic added to our wide collection of blanks. As a special thanks to our service members, Lids is offering free embroidery with the purchase of a cap 5/24 – 5/28 when you show a military ID. You can find your nearest Lids store that offers customization here.
No matter how you choose to spend your Memorial Day Weekend, we hope you take time to spend it with loved ones and remember those who’ve lost their lives serving our country. You can share with us your favorite Memorial Day hats by tagging us @lids.
