New Era, which has been the sole supplier of caps for the American MLB for several years now, is releasing a new MLB collection, which means you can now rock the logos of teams such as the Boston Red Sox, Los Angeles Dodgers and the New York Yankees. You can also expect new, fall-inspired colorways.
The fact that we’re halfway through July serves as a reminder that the crazy heatwaves we’ve been witnessing are slowly leaving us, and that autumn is slowly on its way. Luckily, baseball caps aren’t just a summer thing, and these days their primary function isn’t to protect from sunshine anyway.
The history of New Era starts in 1920, and the brand gained recognition thanks to its model 59Fifty, which came out in 1954. In those days, the 59Fifty was strictly for baseball players only, and it wasn’t until almost a quarter of a century later before it was released to the public, who could show off their favorite team. Today New Era supplies exclusive caps not only for the MLB, but also for the NHL and the NBA.
Baseball caps as we see them now are directly connected to the creation of the highest professional baseball league in North America (which was in the 70’s) – the MLB. The cap’s first expansion towards the public happened in the era of Babe Ruth, who is widely regarded as the best baseball player of all time.
You can protect yourself from the sun, rock your favorite team or complete your outfit with the fall New Era colorways, which you can find in our web store.
