Capshot: Portland Beavers 2008 Road Alternate 59Fifty

A re-release thanks to Hat Club has yielded the second of the 2008-2010 Portland Beavers caps. A redesign of the team in 2008 yielded this cap as a compliment to the road jerseys. The primary cap is a plain navy and has an ivory script P; the featured cap today pairs navy with sky blue. A third cap was also introduced in the redesign as a simple white cap with a navy brim and simplified script P.

Thanks to the inclusion of “Pacific” blue (what the team called this shade), the cap pops much more than the home version. There are three shades of blue in play within the logo, so let’s take a closer look:

The script P is also “pacific” blue and is outlined in what the team called “metropolitan” blue. The hues of blue really work well together as a complete product.

Cap Availability Status: Uncommon

While still available via Hat Club I consider this cap to be uncommon since Hat Club only produces caps in limited runs. I suggest grabbing this cap now rather than later if you want to add it to your rotation.
