About NY Caps

"Take me out to the ballgame." The iconic baseball anthem was inspired by a sign advertising a baseball game at the Polo Grounds in upper Manhattan in 1908. New York was a baseball-loving town then and remains one now, as you can tell by the number of people, in New York and elsewhere, walking around wearing NY caps emblazoned with the names of baseball teams. Although the Giants and the Brooklyn Dodgers relocated to the west coast during the 20th century, the Mets and the Yankees remained. The New York Yankees, arguably baseball's most well known team, have both won the most and lost the most World Series. NY baseball caps sporting the Yankees logo appear not only on the streets of the city but in movies such as "Bruce Almighty," on Morgan Freeman playing God, and in celebrity photos on the heads of Mila Kunis and on others. Red Sox fan Ben Affleck, however, refused to wear one in "Gone Girl." Of course, there are other sports teams with NY caps, including the Giants, Jets, Knicks, Rangers, and Islanders. Whatever your favorite New York team is, you can buy one or a dozen caps from the trusted sports fan sellers on eBay.
