If you're a fan of baseball nostalgia, this lot consisting of eight Seattle caps is right up your alley. The best two are from the Seattle Pilots, a team that existed for just one season (1969) before becoming the Milwaukee Brewers. In 1977, Seattle was awarded a second expansion franchise, and the Mariners have been a popular fixture ever since. These hats are not identified by any specific player numbers, but are in EX condition and show some light use. One is a New Era (broken brim) and the other is a KM Pro. Others from the Mariners include: a circa 1977 New Era, an early 1980s New Era, a late 1980s Sports Specialties, and three different New Era models from the 1990s. An interesting side note: The Mariners had never enjoyed a winning season until the franchise eliminated the trident from its logo in 1987. Four years later, the club enjoyed its first winning campaign and, since then has had more seasons above .500 than below.
