Whether you wear a fitted cap or a snapback, Detroit Tigers fans have plenty of choices for hats.
As Christmas is around the corner, I decided it would be a good time to bring up Detroit Tigers hats. For the past 11 years, I have collected fitted hats from all across the minor leagues including all of the Detroit Tigers minor league affiliates teams. In total, the collection is around 65 total hats. As there are many sneakerheads out there, I am sure there are some hat collectors out there who understand that once you collect one, it does not stop.
So I started thinking about how in the past few seasons, the Tigers have had some new releases out there. The move to a bigger “D” on the hat was just the third change to the cap since 1972 (the idea did not work well at all). While the home hat stayed the same since 1968, the away cap went with a thicker “D” from 1972 to 1982. From 1995 to 1997, the Tigers had the Tiger through the Old English D (while rocking the pinstripes on the sleeves and pants side) and the one-time navy jersey that was scrapped quickly.
For the Detroit Tigers fan in your house, here are some ideas for the holiday season that you may not thought of before.
