Where It All Began:
“I got my first fitted cap in 1989, a California Angels On-Field. My father bought it for me as a birthday gift. I still have it, even though it’s too small to wear. It stays in a special case. Now I have just over 900 caps. It’s been amazing to see the fitted community grow into the large family it is today. I can remember when I first reached out via social media, finally finding a few people who were as passionate about collecting as I am. It’s not the size of the collection that matters, but the size of the passion a person has for their collection. I think most of us collectors understand and respect this. It’s a community I’m proud to be a part of.”
“I don’t really have a “favorite” cap, but a large part of my collection is made up of Minor League baseball caps. I also love vintage NHL caps.”
