American Needle Blockhead Snapback Hats

Vintage snapback hats have been hunted for years now, but only recently has the American Needle Blockhead come into prevalence as one of the most sought after pieces on the market. A year ago, the hats were pretty much just another American Needle line, but now anything hat with block lettering on the back - American Needle or otherwise - is being billed as a blockhead since the market value of these prized pieces has risen so much. Always quick to leap on board of any trend, good or bad, Supreme recently released their five panel arc cap - ripping off the unique colorway and font face of the American Needle Classic.

Personally I put the craze down to the fact that a good stock of these hats was found only quite recently, and since Tupac added his seal of approval in 1993's Poetic Justice, rockin' the White Sox blockhead, the hat series was always going to have a legacy, so long as the product was there to be had.
