BOATER STYLE

 BASEBALL  HAT 

Collection of author, bought at 2007 National Sports Collectors Convention from Darla Bernhardt

Purchased for $200.00

 

Overview by Carlton Hendricks

 

I bought this hat from Darla Bernhardt for $200.00 at the 2007 National Sports Collectors Convention in Cleveland. Darla and company had a lot of very interesting things, which you can read about in the 07' National coverage of her booth. It was kind of an interesting way to buy something, as I wasn't looking for a boater hat, and wasn't expecting to come across one. They are very rare and it was the first one I ever recall for sale, so I went pretty much on intuition. I was surveying Darla's booth for treasure for my story when I saw it. When you're at the National covering it for a story, you're kind of on overload. You're seeing so many great things that when you see something for yourself you have to kind of snap to. Darla said it was $200.00, and I didn't even try to negotiate, just paid it. When I got home I had to move my pillbox cap to fit it in, but looked great.
