God knows where all that cool stuff you discarded in the past and now desperately want back actually ended up -- though if it's a New Kids on the Block tee, karma all but guarantees it's decorating the back of an old homeless man, on a block that doesn't involve as much dancing. For a trove of former glory discovered halfway across the world, visit SnapHats.com
Just unleashed by Centre, Snap's an online vendor of vintage team ballcaps sporting the one-size-fits-most plastic-strap closures that were all the noggin-rage in the late 80s/early 90s; the initial stock was actually stumbled upon in Germany by a friend of the store, then snatched up for the proprietors to schnell!, schnell! Now sourced everywhere from eBay to defunct Canadian sporting-goods stores, the new or lightly worn, 80-strong-and-growing stock covers all four big pro sports as well as colleges, including numbers from the Cowboys (blue-bill, white-body Pro-Line w/ all-cap name on left & stars on right), UT (orange-bill cream Starter w/ "Texas" in generic retro-script), and the Chicago Bulls, from when Jordan ruled, long before the club caught Deng Fever. Obsolete team names are well repped (St. Louis Cardinals, Washington Bullets, Charlotte Hornets, love ya blue Houston Oilers), as are names that have survived against all reason (four different jobs from the Buffalo Bills!).
Some of the choicest stuff's athlete-specific, e.g., an AJD Phillies "Dykstra", and Starters for Randall Cunningham and a Jets-era Esiason -- a fond reminder of when Boomer became the first and only man to ever regret discarding the Bengals.
