The 813


The 813

great story comes out today. After my wife and I were at the Trop last night to see our Royals end the Rays 11 game win streak.
New Era Caps came out with new caps with area codes on the hats of that particular city.
Well Tampa's area code is 813. Thats on the hat. But they never played a game in Tampa. St. Petersberg's code is 727.
The stadium is refusing to stock the new hat. Fans and ownership are pissed. Its hilarious.
Nice hats. TB on front. "813" just to the left looking at the hat. A palm tree just to te right of the TB logo. And on the right side, Tampa Bay, The Cigar City in script.
The mayor wrote "New Error Cap" and "New Era Crap".
They may have been pulled off the internet as well. lol!

Re: The 813

Same kind of story with the Area code Blue Jays Cap in Toronto.

They tag in as an iconic meal in the back of the cap a Quebec originated meal...nothing to do with Toronto...

They removed that Area code with special icon cap from the store too...

Re: Re: The 813

This has nothing to do with baseball but it's kind of the same vein. A few years back in Seattle they launched a new streetcar line called the south lake union transit. There were signs all over that said ride the new south lake union transit. Vandals and graffiitti artists blacked out the outh ake nion ransit part of the sign so it appeared to say ride the you know what lol

Re: The 813

New Era already pulled them. They were all kinds of messed up.

Re: The 813

The Royals New Era caps featured every area code in the region... except for KC's 816!
