In the late '90's, there was a strike (or some other equally daunting issue) which shut off -- albeit briefly -- the supply of licensed merchandise at Steelers games. If memory serves, it was only a game or two. City Stuff, we're pretty sure, came on the scene solely as a result of the cap shortage. Vendors, in the quest to offer something (anything) new for fans, bought these caps as an interim, "stop-gap" measure. These were marketed as suitable for baseball, football, or hockey since the three teams all shared similar team colors.
Whatever was causing the original cap shortage was resolved fairly quickly, and City Stuff soon faded back into obscurity (as far as we know). The hats are really not bad, actually -- you just won't find a team logo anywhere.
Regardless, they are a (tiny) piece of history for the collector, and we offer these UNLICENSED caps for that reason. Even the tags on the caps make it clear that they are not licensed. Check 'em out and grab an unusual piece of the past.
Thanks for dropping by and visiting. We at Jeff’s Vintage Treasure appreciate the opportunity to serve you. Keep in mind that while others may offer you vintage style or so-called “throwback” items, we offer the real thing! These were truly manufactured back in the day, which is why it’s unlikely you’ll find anything identical to what we offer – at least, not in the superb condition found with our items. Our goal is to provide a quality, often hard-to-find product and service at a reasonable price, and customer response reflects that. Should you have any questions, we invite you to contact us and we’ll do our best to answer them ASAP.
Also, If you haven’t done so already, we urge you to take a moment and check out www.JeffsTreasureChest.com for non-vintage, (a.k.a. “newer” items). You’ll be glad you did!
