Default 1986 Fleer Card Hat

Back in 1986 I ordered one of these card hats from Fleer thru their wrapper offer...I put some Fleer Famous Feats cards in it and even wore it to a couple regional card shows back then...I still have it with the cards in it but I have never seen another one...does anybody else have one or seen one?...was I the only one who spent $3 on this thing or the only one who is willing to admit it?

Until proven otherwise, I am claiming this is the only one in existence and might actually be worth the $3 I paid for it.

Let's see another one.

Pics and it really happened...and I did actually wear it.
Have posted in several groups and forums and to date not even another sighting of one.

Can it be the only one of an item from the "junk wax era"?

Neat item. I wonder if someone has a complete collection of all the send away merchandise advertised on sports card wrappers

Don't have one and have never seen one, but I do love it!

The closest thing that I have is the hat my mother made me in 1976 in my college colors, green and gold . . .

Hey, sportscards and cold beers do go together well!

I bet if you could go back in time to 86 you’d have spent your $3 on a few basketball packs instead of the hat, lol

That is pretty cheesy. I think you got taken!

I was picturing one of those really puffy ball caps of the time, with the mesh in the back with some cards printed on to the puffy front part. Like my little league caps.
