Whatever happened to the Mets Press Conference Caps?

The brain gets fuzzy over the years.

At some point, I think 2013, although my image above is from 2016, the Mets and/or MLB announced there would be Press Conference Caps.

I don’t think they were ever deployed.

The idea was they would be “trucker” design, and I remember having a hard time imagining one of these on Terry Collins’ head.

As I was writing some posts on Sunday, this cap popped into my head and I started digging to dust off my brain so I could write the post

But holy cow look what I found on eBay!

Is that an ACTUAL Mets press conference cap?????

I don’t think I’ve actually seen an actual one.

Wow, was MLB really going to send people out in these?

Fortunately, I don’t think that ever occurred (whew) but can you imagine?

And from the blogger’s chair, it’s always fun to uncover something I have never seen before.

I’d love to know the story of why these were never deployed.

I'm still hung up on having the Mets try an orange uniform
Hey Mets, remember when Agent Wags said extend deGrom or trade deGrom?
