Headwear trends develop and change like any other — from fitteds to snapbacks to dad caps, New Era has been there. Now, the veteran headwear label has teamed up with five baseball stars to drop 15 limited edition caps exclusive to Champs Sports.
New Era x MLB sees Bryce Harper, Dellin Betances, Josh Donaldson, Andrew McCutchen and Buster Posey each design three caps in renowned 9FORTY (adjustable curved brim) and 9FIFTY (adjustable snapback) styles.
Player designed Champs Sports collections started back in 2015 with New Era x NFL. This marks the first time Major League Baseball pros have swapped bats for pencils and sketched their visions for the brand collaboration.
New Era produced their first professional baseball cap for the Cleveland Indians in 1934; almost 100 years later, MLBs most prolific teams have all been signed with New Era. Their story embodies the American Dream, producing 60,000 caps per year in 1920 and 50+ million today.
New Era recently reunited with Yohji Yamamoto, peep the results here.
