On this day in 1920, the New York Yankees purchased Babe Ruth from the Boston Red Sox for $125,000. The purchase was announced on January 5th, 1920. Thus, the Curse of the Bambino was born. In 2004, the curse was reversed. The Boston Red Sox won the World Series, ending the 86-year curse. Today's post is a replica of the hat the Red Sox wore when they finally won the World Series. It has been worn by Boston as the home and road cap since 1979. This particular hat is well worn, with quite the sweat marks. It is replica, adjustable.
