The sporting cap from the playing fields of the USA has become a surprisingly adaptable Fashion Souvenir, adopted internationally, with an endless possibility of highly graphic, yet effective, use of symbols and slogans. In a society that places little value, or rather pays very little attention, to the wearing of hats or headgear, the baseball cap has become a particular and effective indicator of national or regional identity.
