In honor of the 2008 All-Star game that ended early this morning — the last to be played in the House that Ruth Built — I offer this old-style Yankees cap as tribute.
I picked up the cap in New York Chinatown in roughly 2002. It’s one of scores of variations on the classic Yankees ballcap available from street vendors and shops throughout Manhattan. Pink, yellow, green, red — whatever your color of choice, chances are you can find the famous “NY” stamped on a cap of that color.
I picked this one because the tan twill crown and muted navy blue bill give an old-time baseball impression.
