Dedicated Bay Area sports fan.

Grew up watching the Warriors as a kid... starting with Joe Smith. When the team returned to the playoffs... I was there and I Believed... and I still do.

The A's were the first baeball team I watched, and since then, baseball is my biggest passion.

The 49ers, with Steve Young, was football at its finest. I love my Niners.

Sharks fan that can't get enough hockey.

Love Cal Bears football!
Love Michigan State basketball.

Huge follower on the Jacksonville Jaguars and San Jose State basketball team.

A San Jose State University graduate with a degree in journalism. I can be found in Google searches.

Working for NFL Network right now.

Does this factory error A's cap have any value?


I bought this last week and I think it might have some value, at least double what I paid for. New Era used the wrong thread for the logo on the cap, using gold instead of white. This was the only one made and I bought it. Are there collectors out there that like collecting these kinds of caps?
