One fitted a day, done my way. My love and passion for baseball and sports as a whole is translated through my collection of fitted caps. Most of these cranial gems I have collected through my vast adventures of Americas frontiers one dirt filled diamond at a time. Others in the collection have been purchased or given to me as gifts. Every Fitted has a team and every team has a story, these are my stories. The Fitted Diaries, One fitted a day, done my way...

The Last Stand for a Franchise
Today here at TFD we feature not only for the first time a cap that isn't made by the New Era Cap Company, but we feature the only NBA team to ever start a season 0-18. This Reebok cap, which was limited in production to 1600, is designed in honor of the New Jersey Nets. The Nets, as some of us know, are in their final 2 seasons in the great state of New Jersey, and clearly have no intentions of looking back. I may be one of the few people in this world that will honestly admit that they will miss them. Sure, I'm aware they do not have an NBA Championship, and they only have two Eastern Conference Championships, but dammit, this was my team. If there is anyone out there, who agrees with me in the sense that tearing a franchise from the roots and moving them is just wrong, please comment on this post. It doesn't necessarily need to be the Nets, any team works. The Sonics, The Baltimore Colts decades ago, The Montreal Expos, any team. We all know this thing called sports is a business at the end of the day, but you can't pick who you love, and who loves ya back. The cap featured has a navy blue brim, a white crown, and a navy blue back. On the front, the NBA font logo is shown with the Nets logo displayed on the inside. Get your New Jersey Nets gear while its hot, it'll be all gone before you know it.
