    The saddest part is.....there is a high percentage of people out there that would believe you and not even realize that it's not possible

  • Ordered this hat and the error is on the actual product, not just the mock up. Contacted New Era about it a couple days ago and initially received a form response questioning it's authenticity. But did speak with someone by phone today. Sounds like Fanatics plans to pull the hat and there won't be a corrected run. Also, Pro Shop won't be carrying it in store. Now I need to decide whether to keep it as a unique item or just get my money back.

  • Too bad they don't give you an option to plug in your own est date. I could put 1955 to match my birth year.

    BTW, I ordered this production mishap. Turns out I had a $4 credit from my earlier hat buying craze after the Superbowl, so that made it easier. What the heck? It will be a great conversation starter with folks pointing and going "BS" or "Idiot Bandwagoner!".

    Good times are coming.

  • 1968 is weird too because the Sonics were established in 1967 and the Seattle Pilots were 1969 so they didn't confuse it with one of those teams.

  • The last team added before the Seahawks, were the Bengals in '68. Same hat is available for the entire NFL. So that sort of explains how that year might have been put on in error when designing them.

    If so, that's even more lame because the Bengals were an AFL expansion team not an NFL team. Granted the merger had been agreed to in '68, but it didn't actually happen until the 1970 season.

    BTW, bonus points if anyone can name the other AFL expansion team and what year they began play (be honest, no Google/Yahoo/Bing/etc. search).

  • It is both a Seahawk hat that celebrates a great team, and a hat that dogs the niners by showing the last year they were relevant.

    Dolphins? I am trying to reverse engineer this in my pea brain. Only one that fits.

    EDIT: UGGH! Guess they came on-line in 1966 along with the Atlanta Falcons.

    You are correct about both the team and the year my friend. Apparently being that massive one year older than me hasn't robbed you of all your memory. :D

    Falcons were NFL btw.

    It's getting close. It is all down hill after 59, sort of like hitting 40 but even worse. That's the year I noticed I had developed man-boobs. Glad those jokers are now minimal since I am doing my senior citizen work-out routine. Yeah, I knew the Falcons came in as an NFL team vs AFL. Just another one of my wording gaffes.
