I like it, but for $36.99 I think more than $1 should go to veterans.

Agreed. That's pretty pathetic actually.

I've always thought 20-25$ for hats was too expensive. I would definitely never spend $37.

Not a fan of either or even the concept really.

I wasn't that long ago when wearing the flag (or visually alluding to it) was considered distasteful. Different times I suppose.

Yes different times. Can we go back to the other times?

How can a symbol have meaning when it's used to make every kind of clothing imaginable, including underwear? I'm not that old, but it makes me sick.

Leave the flag alone. It's a flag that's it. Show it the respect it deserves.

And they justify it by giving a percentage of the money to veterans? (edit - They give a dollar. A freakin' dollar for a way overpriced hat. If it was $10 each I could live with it. Shame on them all) How's about the country those veterans fought for making sure they have what they need. I'd gladly pay more tax money to ensure the good women and men in our military are taken care of well vs. desecrating the flag and my beloved teams logo with a craptastic hat like that.

Wait a month to buy it and it will be at least half that price.

'tis true.

I bought the blue from from 2008 last year and paid 10 bucks for it.

They looked........ok. They matched well with the Cards' unis, and decently with the Reds' gray unis.

Some teams' hats matched horribly with the unis......

I thought the Cards looked like ice cream vendors with those hats.

I understand the stars indicate patriotism, but I would have preferred a more direct indication of respect for veterans on the caps. For me, this looks more like a July 4th cap.
