where to buy a Posties yellow baseball cap?tarwheel

Does anyone know where to buy a US Postal team yellow cap like the one Lance wears in some of the post-race photos? I don't have the nerve to wear a Posties yellow jersey, but I would wear the cap.

I can't believe some of the suckers on ebay. There are yellow USPS jerseys selling for way more than $100 right now and you can buy them at the local bike for less than that -- even with their markup.

I remember, i think it was last year, yellow Postal jersies going for hundreds of dollars on E-bay. And they weren't even signed or anything, just regular run of the mill jersies.

I have a Trek catalog authgraphed by Frankie Andreu. Think I can get any suckers to give me big bucks for it?

I believe you could sell just about anything on eBay. Someone actually sold some used chewing gum from one of the Arizona Diamondback pitchers a while ago, just after they won the World Series. I've seen a lot of bicyle related gear sell at prices higher than retail. Some people just get caught up in the bidding, I guess, or don't have a clue.

I just did a search for "Lance Armstrong" on E-bay. I found an UN-signed "what are you on?" poster currently at $81.

Unbelieveable. Makes me want to go to my LBS and buy some Postal jersies and put them on E-bay....

Funny thing is, they show a photo of the yellow cap at the top of this web page, but they don't have it listed anywhere in the items for sale.
i noticed that too....gregario

Thanks for the offer. First I am going to check one of the local bike shops (on the other side of town), where I saw one a few weeks ago. I think it cost about $22.
BINGO!!!tarwheel

I found a 2001 yellow Posties hat at one of the local bike shops. It was priced at $30, but I know the owner and it had been sitting around a while, so he gave it to me for $20. Now I don't know if I ought to wear it or not -- with these things selling for $130 on ebay, I might want to save it to help finance my daughter's college education.
