Any 59FIFTY connoisseur can discuss the nostalgic qualities of the old-school green under visor models at length. New Era gives this classic design a twist, by adding an extra element of headwear Americana, the bandana-style paisley pattern, for a subtle alteration that adds a fresh feeling, without detracting from the timeless design.
By the mid-'90s, with their last World Series banner gathering 18 years of dust, and expensively assembled rosters failing to deliver a new championship to the Bronx, the Yankees were something of a punchline. That all changed in 1996. A World Series that started off with two straight losses to the 'team of the '90s' Atlanta Braves, in New York, ended with Wade Boggs riding a police horse on the Yankee Stadium warning track in celebration. It's memorable enough on its own, but a 59FIFTY complete with World Series patch is a reminder you can wear all the time.
