An evolving miscellaneous baseball hat/trucker cap clothing tag label history by year.
How I came up with the years for the tags:
The date on a graphic doesn't necessarily mean that was the date the item was produced. The copyright dates are the date the image itself was copyrighted and not necessarily when the item was printed. Sorry but that Snoopy tee was most likely not made in 1965. A dated event graphic like the 1984 World Series or a 1979 Annual Chili Cook Off is more likely to represent the true vintage age of the item. Unless it was a graphic popular enough to be reprinted, there is no reason an item with an event date would be printed in a later year than it states. Of course, any event item could always have been printed on an older blank item that the printing business had in stock which is why you might see different tags for the same year. Unless we get a tag history directly from the clothing companies, this can never be an exact science.
The years for the tags below were taken from hates that had years for events that the hat design was featuring and not from copyright dates. Beware of other websites that don't state how they came up with their dates as they might be getting them from copyright dates. This blog is evolving and will be updated as I collect more examples. This is a tool for me that I am providing to you.
