The Kids New York Yankees Navy 1958 World Series Cooperstown New Era K59FIFTY Fitted Hat is something no child who is a dedicated New York fan should be without. Especially if that New York team is the Yankees. The hat is typical of New Era as it is styled after the adult 59FIFTY caps – a favorite and popular hat style from New Era.
When people think of the 1958 World Series Cooperstown, team names like Casey Stengel, Yogi Berra (Lawrence Peter Berra), and MVP Bob Turley come to mind. As announcers go, Earl Gillespie and Bob Wolf were unmistakable on the radio, as were Mel Allen and Kurt Gaudi on TV. NBC broadcast the game which was played from October 1st to the 9th between the Yankees and the Milwaukee Braves.
The 59FIFTY Hat
Besides being New Era’s most popular hat, the 59FIFTY cap’s unique look is what gives it its claim to fame. It comes with a flat brim; which people are now leaving “as is” for the duration of their ownership of the hat. Some individuals, on the other hand, still like to give it a gentle curve. The fitted style gives it a perfect, snug feel on your head – provided you measure your head correctly and choose the right size. Sizes only differ by about a centimeter, so measure carefully. The rigid reinforced panels help this hat maintain its shape for a long time. This, coupled with leaving the brim flat, keeps your hat looking like it just came out of the box.
The New Era Hat Company
The New Era Hat Company was started back in 1920 by an industrious German immigrant named Ehrhardt Koch. He borrowed some money from his sister and decided to chase a dream. Renting a minimal New York backroom (in Buffalo), he began banging out hats. In its first year, his company produced a minimum of 60,000 Gatsby style caps. This company is responsible for creating fitted hats, and a member of the Koch family is also known for creating the term "painting with thread" – referring to embroidery.
As an example of the perfection that goes into each and every hat, the 59FIFTY mentioned here takes no less than 22 hands to prepare and goes through no fewer than 22 steps during manufacture! That's what it takes to make the perfect hat.
Now Let's Get to the Title Hat…
The Kids New York Yankees Navy 1958 World Series Cooper Town New Era K59FIFTY Fitted Hat is a ball cap that comes in black with white logo. On the front is the unmistakable New York logo (NY).
