Capshot: San Diego Padres Perfect Pastel 59Fifty

While not entirely common, colors you wouldn’t think to see on a baseball cap do appear on occasion and in different collections. This cap is one such release and features a pastel pink as the pop of color against a heather gray crown.

This cap from the “perfect pastel” collection features a crown and interlocking SD done up in a powdery pink color. While not entirely easy to wear everyday, there are occasions where a pink cap can come in handy. This also isn’t the only pink cap I own; thanks to the advent of the Mother’s Day and breast cancer awareness caps, my count on caps with pink in them totals just below 10. The beauty of the pastel pink is that it isn’t garish in any way; the subtlety of the color matches well with heather gray.

Cap Availability Status: Uncommon

Though still widely available via Lids, this cap is a clearance selection. Caps on clearance are a “once gone, they’re gone” deal. If you’re looking for a cap with a color difference on the slightly cheap, you could do worse than this one.
