One must exhibit a certain level of dedication in order to collect exorbitant amounts of something. Whether a collection involves dozens or thousands, collecting takes time. Some collections have no affiliation whatsoever, while others cater to a particular city, team, brand, etc. It is unfathomable for some to consider stocking up on New Era fitted caps. To others, it is a dream.
Let's look at a number of individuals who have reveled in the thrill of the hunt and put together some of the most impressive collections of fitted caps in existence.
