The 1987 season was the first for the Twins in their iconic pinstriped uniforms. The previous set had pullover jerseys with red caps at home and navy caps on the road. With the introduction of the 1987 set, a new word mark was introduced and pinstripes were added. The navy cap with the new M logo was used full time.
1987 also introduced the Homer Hanky, which has become a favorite among Twins fans. This was also the first World Series to ever have games played indoors.
This cap is part of the World Series patch collection by New Era, and features no MLB logo on the back, staying true to the time period.
I have owned this cap for years now, but am still in the process of re-creating a 1987 Twins jersey. I'm considering adding a World Series patch to the sleeve, despite that not being historically accurate.
The Twins would go on to win the 1991 World Series as well, which used a very similar logo (1987 is replaced with 1991). Hopefully under Paul Molitor the Twins can bring another World Series trophy home soon!
And for your enjoyment, Game 7 of the 1987 World Series in its entirety!
