    Pittsburgh Pirates 70s-80s pillbox hats

    Love these pillbox caps worn by the Pirates back in the day.Im looking for a 1976 mustard one so message me if you have one at Rickwood35180@gmail.com. Definitely a different cap the Pirates liked them so much they wore them until 1986 as some of you might remember

    The Cardinals also had batting helmets with the pillbox cap stripes.

    Oh yes there is not much information about them online but the Pirates & Cardinals wore them the most of the six teams.I read the Mets might not have worn them at all in a real game
