Back in the 1980’s and early 1990’s, these style of hats were VERY popular, at least in the area I grew up in back in the St. Paul, Minnesota suburbs.
Just Like Eazy E and NWA Wore – LA Kings Cursive Hat
This hat I owned about 27 years ago, which seems like eternity. As a big fan of throwback merchandise like NFL and NBA uniforms, this was a great buy. Purchased on eBay (of course, where I get all my old school apparel) this was a gem of a find. I’m happy to have found it, and vow to take care of it!
Here’s a pic of the hat. You can see a lot of people selling it as a “Straight outta Compton” hat because in that era, many of the members sported this hat.
