Also please remember that it was in 1992 that the MLB logo first appeared on the back of New Era caps.......this can also play a role in determining the year of early 90's caps that may be in question.

Rob........maybe someone will put together a comprehensive guide to cap collecting and include all of the other manufacturers of caps like Rawlings, Spaulding, Tim McAuliffe, KM Pro, Wilson, Devon, Sports Specialties,, etc. The hobby really needs it as it would provide history and knowledge to those who have caps or want to start collecting them.

The first picture (“MLB Tag”) for the 2007, 2008 and 2009 caps is a bit confusing. In the 2007 and 2009 pictures, it says “OFFICIAL ON-FIELD CAP”, while in the 2008 one, it says “ON-FIELD PERFORMANCE”. However, the description (“What changed”) for 2008 says that “Underneath the authentic logo, it says ‘OFFICIAL ON-FIELD CAP'”. Perhaps the 2007 and 2008 MLB Tag pictures got switched around? However, I see no mention anywhere of the tag that says “ON-FIELD PERFORMANCE”.

Updated "What Changed" column.

Photos of the tag from 2007 and 2008 were not interchanged. More sample hats are needed for 2007 thru 2009 as I requested in another thread.

Does anyone out there collect game used caps by companies other than New Era?

I do believe the 2007 and 2008 hats are reversed as I have several Angels hats from those years. I know one of them has a cert from the Angels. I will see what the date is on it. I also don't think they would have one tagline in 2007 and then change it in 2008 and then go back to it in 2009. I will update you with pics when I get a chance.

One other hat I have is 1997 or later since the Angels logo is from 1997-2001 era but it has the 5950 tagging.

its possible. when i delete a row on the spreadsheet the photos in the row are not automativally deleted and the photos move to the next row (why is excel that that?). so it is possible that i manually deleted the wrong photos. i need to look back on the original files now.

it would be great to get more samples.

updated 2007, 2008 and new 2010 (thanks to member Hiramman)

The past 2007 sample were from special 2008 9/11 Yankee hats. (see Mariano cap photo) That was a special cap so I deleted the row from the worksheet but the image moved to the next row on the spreadsheet and I did not catch it. (why does excel work that way). Luckily I keep each draft and rename them and of course keep all the original photos I use in the worksheet.

Great work guys concerning the New Era Co..........hope someone will do the same for cap companies like Sports Specialties, Wilson, KM Pro, etc. The hobby is long overdue for this knowledge.
