And you thought you had a lot of hats…
For the past two months we’ve been scouring the Internet looking for the next Ultimate Hat Collection. After analyzing all of the epic entries (seriously, check out #UltimateHatCollection on Instagram), we chose eight finalists to battle it out for the title of LIDS Ultimate Hat Collector – 2018! In this blog we are highlighting one of our UHC competitors and official 2018 UHC champ, Mark Lackinger AKA @MARK_LACKY. Check out his news segment below!
“Today, my collection has grown to 653 hats. I have virtually every single MLB Authentic hat as well as every hat from all 4 World Baseball Classics.”
More about Mark
“I’m from Chicago, IL and I’ve been collecting hats since I was a kid. My passion for hats really took off when I got my first job at LIDS in high school and continued to work there throughout college. I cant wait to share my collection with my son Sam, who will be born this January.”
Thanks for all who voted in this year’s Ultimate Hat Collector Contest! Keep and eye out for next year, where we will begin the search again for more devoted hat collectors. If you’re looking to expand your hat collection, there’s no better place to start than Lids.com
