The Unofficial Jon Hamm Hat Contest

Postby big d note » Thu Jun 23, 2011 4:26 pm

I'm sure you've all seen the hat I'm talking about:

Image

That's pretty dirty and old (but not 15 years old), but I'm sure some of us have a Blues hat in worse shape. Post up your pics! Can you beat Jon Hamm? I've got a couple at home that I need to get pictures of.

Why is this the Unofficial contest? If I enter will it void my eligibility in the Official contest? :lol:

Are we sure he didn't remove the old logo and sew a new one on the hat once they changed?

If I can find my hat I got for my 8th grade graduation, I'll post that. It was white and it was my only hat for 4+ years. It got pretty gross.

This contest does not have the Jon Hamm Seal of Approval. Enter at your own risk. I don't know whether it will affect your eligibility in the Official contest.

:okman:

I forgot to take pictures last night, but I'll try to get some this weekend. Back in the day I had a black wool Starter Blues hat with the Norris logo on the side. Wish I still had that one.

Pretty sure that's the giveaway hat that some of us got at the inaugural Blues News Forum/rat tossing/vodka-sneaking/Buddy Holly Stats Guy martyrdom/Crazy-ass Hecht jersey game. I have two of those left, one of which is my standard yard work hat. It's gotten pretty grungy over the years, but not as bad as Hamm's. Mine may have stunk worse until I recently washed it.

I have an old as shit Blues hat but I don't know where it is... might have gotten tossed when I moved.

OK, here are my entries!

Hat #1: This used to be my everyday hat for several years until it got too faded. It's so comfortable that I hate to throw it away, so I still wear it for walking the dogs and other grubby stuff.

Image

Hat #2: I'm not sure how long I've had this one. It actually used to be blue, but it's kind of light gray now. I just wear it for yardwork now, so it's covered in grass clippings.

Image

Here's the inside; this is what color it used to be:

There is a girl that works at Shakespeare's in Columbia, MO that wears a black hat with grey Blues logo. I know it is a pre-lockout hat, because I have the same one somewhere.

I have had this hat since the clown jerseys first came out in 1995. I wore it quite a bit. I have others, somewhere at my parents' house. But this one made the trip to Columbia, for some reason.



Notice the faded colors on the front. It is black and hard to see. On the inside, you can really see the wear on the brow, from taking it on and off, adjusting it, all the time.

Wow, that's an old and ugly hat. What's the logo on the back say? Is that the brand?

I had a nasty hat, but it got tossed in Jay McClements hat trick on Halloween.

In the 90s I had a really zany Starter brand Blues hat - the logo was just the "ST. LOUIS" Bluenote with the red trim around it, but the hat itself was a blue and yellow zebra design. I ruined that hat 12 times sideways and eventually it actually hurt to wear it because it would prick my head from the inside. Alas, it is no more, and I couldn't find it in a Google search. I did, however, find this...

Image

What the poop? I guess they made this in the odd chance that we beat the Avs in the Conference Finals. Really sad to see :(

Oh, and I would totally buy and wear this gem of a hat if I found one...

Image

LogoAthletic!!! :lol:

P.S.: There are some really crazy hats out there. Specifically...

It just reminded me of those wild-patterned weightlifter pants with the giant elastic waist that Vanilla Ice used to wear. :grin:

Here is my sweet Blues hat. Just found it in my parents closet a couple years ago. Trying not to get it too dirty since it's pretty awesome.

In Jon Hamm years, you've had that hat for 37 years!
