The New Era MLB Wave hats and caps are inspired by Japanese culture for a different type of look into the commemorative caps. Each cap has a swell of waves with the team’s logo sitting on top in its usual center spot.
Quantities are limited for the line, possibly since its popularity was established in 2005 when the wave-centric hats were first released. The Wave collection is nearly sold out for many teams, which is no surprise considering its style and release 15 years ago.
The celebration of the baseball cap is one of the anniversaries being celebrated this year in baseball. Just this weekend, Major League Baseball honored the 100th anniversary of the Negro Leagues.
