New Era Heritage Series x Spike Lee 1996 World Series Collection

Although he's known mainly for directing classic films, Spike Lee does pretty well at being a professional sports fan as well. When the Do The Right Thing director approached New Era’s CEO, Chris Koch, in 1996 and requested a personal one-of-one red NY Yankees cap — back when the brand only issued team colors — nobody could've predicted that he was ushering in a new approach to style when it came to the iconic baseball cap.

To commemorate that moment, New Era and Spike Lee are dropping a five-piece 1996 World Series capsule collection. Each cap features an embroidered side patch from the era-defining game, and are packaged in a special New Era Series box complete with a commemorative booklet. Pick up the New Era Heritage Series x Spike Lee "1996 World Series" Collection now at a local New Era retailer.
