Today the hat has evolved into a fashion icon. One of the well know styles today is the classic SnapBack. The SnapBack Hat has been around since the Babe Ruth era “1950′s”. The SnapBack took the roll of an athletes style of hat. It was seen in the NBA,NHL,MLB,NFL.. Normally after a championship has been won. In the 1980′s they were started to be worn by many celebrities and rappers, as a fashion icon. They were well known for the adjustable tabs on the back. These tabs will let you change the width of the crown so it will fit on your head meaning they are usually a one size fits all. That is where the name SnapBack came from. More towards the 1990,s- 2000′s more and more SnapBack companies like Mitchell and Ness, American Needle, and Zephyr reached out to Major Leagues to design SnapBacks for their teams. Now you can get a SnapBack for any major team. Starting in in the year 2012 the SnapBack Hat has now become the most fashionable icon for your head. Within a short period of time designers have taking the SnapBack to a new level. They have made it now their personal custom hat. Designers now have made a SnapBack into a Custom Brim SnapBack. A Custom Brim is a make over done to the hat. The designer completely disassembles the visor from the crown and strips the original fabric from it. They later assemble new fabric, or animal hide to fit back on the hat. The next step is to sew the hat back together step by step. Now after assembly the classic SnapBack has now involved into the new style Custom Brim SnapBack. Sunkenbooty.com has the biggest variety of Custom Brim Snapbacks, such as the LA Raiders Custom Brim. Designers have been known to do their own little signatures to their hats. As seen on Sunkenbooty.com they use a custom hand stamped leather Strap instead of a SnapBack. They have also a custom designed pin that stands out on the back of the hat to match their pirate theme. One of their most recognized custom brim Strapbacks is the Vintage Chicago Bulls Strapback with 100% Real Snake Skin Brim.
“Here We Rise”
As the current Sacramento Kings marketing phase suggest, We also here at Sunken Booty wrap our future within these words “Here We Rise”. For the Kings a proud NBA west division powerhouse, that has fallen on a period of mediocrity years, a new flame has ignited. The drafting of Tyreke Evans from Memphis, DeMarcus Cousins from Kentucky, and Jimmer Fredette from Brigham Young gives them young blood and with a strong support team of Salmons, Thornton, Outlaw and Thomas helps shift this team back into a team to be reckoned with.
The Kings have strong roots and can be traced back to the early years of NBA. This team started all the way across the county as the Rochester Royals. 1n 1951 the Royals won the only franchise NBA Championship but struggled financially in Rochester . In 1957 the team was moved to Cincinnati and a couple years later drafted same Cat named The Big “O”. Oscar Robertson was a high flying player that averaged a triple double in the 61 – 62 season. Jerry Lucas joined the team a few years later but could never get past the Boston Celtics or the Milwaukee Bucks.
By 1972 the team moved again this time to become the Kansas City Kings. Many talented NBA players laced up their sneakers and wore a KC Kings jersey. Nate Archibold, Van Arsdale, “Jumpin” Johnny Green, Matt Guakas just to name a few.
In 1985 the team sold for 11 million dollars and moved to Sacramento. Early years of off court injuries and death to players helped keep the team from reaching goals of long playoff runs. In the 91 season Mitch Richmond joined the team and a new era began. When Chris Webber landed in Sacramento along with Vlade Divec, Peja Stojakovic, Doug Cristie and Corliss Williamson the Sports Illustrated labeled this team “The Greatest Show On Court”. This team enjoyed many great playoff seasons but always ended just short of their championship goals.
This leads us straight into the “Here We Rise” era the Kings find themselves in now. When we here at Sunken Booty were contacted by Kings management to do a collab with them we felt like “Here We Rise” also. A huge shout out to the Sacramento Kings for allowing us to make these Sacramento Kings Custom SnapBack Strapback caps. It was a great honor for us to be part do this collab and we think they looked great. We enjoy the relationship forged with the Kings during this work. Together both the Sacramento Kings & Sunken Booty say “HERE WE RISE”.

Not me any more
Last night was the start of the NBA 2012-2013 basketball season and for me I’ve taken my Orlando Magic snapback hat off and put it on the self. This doesn’t mean I don’t plan on following the Magic or the NBA this season but it is a sure tell sign that my interest in professional sports is at a all time low.
As I’ve grow older the thrill of watching over paid professional athletes running up and down a court or field chasing different types of balls has lost its glitter. Even more so with the different leagues, more so the NBA, allowing a few teams, and I say chosen teams, to stock pile what appears to be heavy favored talent to win it all makes watching pro basketball a waste of time for me. Realize that fact that I was a season ticket holder for 22 years with the Magic, making me old money that bought season tickets through the thin and thick years. I seen 25 win seasons where I wouldn’t have given up my tickets for the world. I’ve sat there in winning season and watched playoff series good and bad.
I realize the fact that in the pasted there has been the dominate teams, the Bulls in the 90′s, the Celtics and Lakers, and more recent the Spurs but for some reason I could live with that. Why then and not now?
Is the sport over hyped in every way. Is part of the reason that only certain teams will be televised nationally 30 plus times where others may have 1 opportunity to showcase their talent? Has the NBA sold out their brand to where I’m just tired of reading, watching, hearing it?
Am I tired of how I perceive the league handles the so called superstars? ie calls or lack there of, face time, exposure. Am I tired of how the teams handles the so called superstars? ie pushing coaches out, pampering, catering to their every whim.
Has my die hard love for professional sports left me for ever? Do I just not care any more about grow men or women playing a game, A GAME, and making millions of dollars to do so? When did my time become more valuable not to spend large amount of money to sit and watch these events? I miss my Orlando Magic SnapBack Hat and at times the rush I used to get watching professional sports.
I guess professional sports is a young mans game both participating in and watching. The leagues and teams both seem to cater more to them in marketing and advertising. Funny thing though we all get older, do we all go through the same I’m over it feeling? Maybe to different degrees!!!
Hey National Basketball Association don’t toss me out with the trash. I hope to again wear my Orlando Magic SnapBack Hat .
Houston Rocket SnapBack
5 Years 80 Million WHAT???
Anybody following the National Basketball Association today knows that James Harden the 6th man on the Okc Thunder last year was traded to the Houston Rockets a couple days before the season opener. The Thunder reportedly had offered Harder a 4 year 55 million DOLLAR contact that was not accepted by him. Within days the management of the Thunder moved Harden receiving young talent and future draft picks.
Houston Rocket SnapBack wearers received in Harden a young scoring 2 guard that they felt would give them the offensive presence to score nightly and a go to guy at crunch time. The Rockets immediately signed Harden to the max deal allowed at 5YEARS 80 MILLION DOLLARS. WOW!!! I like James Harden and know that with that kind of money he should be able to set up his family for generations to come without the worries that many folks today face. I don’t begrudge Harden for getting that kind of money either even though this is a GAME played 82 times for a couple hours a night over the course of 7-8 months a year.
It’s what makes the USA great, that free enterprise can generate that kind of money to pay 1 player $195,000.00 for 35 to 40 minutes to dribbling and shoot a round ball through a round hoop 10 feet off the floor. Oh by the way that about $5,600.00 dollars a minute. Houston Rocket Snapback wearers don’t care about that kind of money paid out, National Basketball Association lovers don’t care about that kind of money.
I haven’t heard any real loud protest for any Wall Street Occupiers either about what the Rockets have guaranteed Harden they will pay him over the next 5 years. WHY?
Isn’t Harden now one of the hated, rich, power hungry, money hoarded, none sharing capitalist PIGS that the Occupiers have been protesting against the last couple years. If this was one of the CEO,s of a multi-million dollars wall street company signing a contact to bring home that same percent of his companies earning that Harden just did with the Rockets all HELL would brake lose. Why then is it wrong for oil execs or CEOs of companies employing thousand of people and making millions of profit to make huge paycheck? Why is it wrong enough for thousand for people to picket, say nasty thing about them and generally show large amount of disrespect towards them but not say or do a thing towards the Rockets or Harden.
Occupy Wall Street movement can’t just pick and choose certain things or people to protest against. They have to be consistent or why or how can I get behind their movement. Everyone today wants consistency, I do with my job, Harden certainly does with his play and calls he may or may not get on the court. Why then should not Occupy Wall Strret followers, seems to me if our going to just pick a choose who and what to protest against one wouldn’t have much ground to stand their movement on.
Either don’t do it or do it all!!!!
Mean time James have a great year, take care of your family and enjoy the the GAME Houston Rocket SnapBack wearers.
The Hawaii Warriors represents the University of Hawaii. They are in the NCAA Division I FBS college football league. Their colors as seen in our “Tropical” Hawaii Warriors Strapback Hat are green and black. The hat has the teams stitched logo on the front with the teams colors green and black. The Hawaii Warriors name has been unstable since the year 2000. There has been a lot of controversy about their old name “The Hawaii Rainbow Warriors”. They have come across multiple names as the current name Hawaii Warriors, Rainbow Warriors’ to the Fighting Green Turtles. But over time they decided to move away from the Rainbow Warriors due to controversial issues. As seen on our Hat We use a tropical print fabric on the brim to symbolize the beautiful oasis of Hawaii. If you have ever been to Hawaii, one of the first things you do when you get there is get laid by a beautiful lei made of hibiscus flowers. Looking carefully at the flowers stitched on the brim, this is what you call the Hibiscus. This flower is the National Flower of Hawaii, other known as ” pua aloalo” or “pua ma’o hau hele”. So if you want to feel tropical or support your team get your hands on one of Sunken Booty’s Custom Brim Hawaii Warrior “Tropical” Strapback today.
