Bridgestone Hats, Patches & Other Stuff
« on: July 07, 2012, 01:55:08 PM »
Found this site that is offering a few modern baseball caps with vintage Bridgestone patches stitched on. The price seems quite reasonable since I've seen the same patches sell for that much alone.

Coxy, I might have to pick one of those up for myself.

In the meantime though, I think I'd rather have a hat with one of these patches instead......

Bridgestone hats are attractive actually I am not wearing hats, but I never miss to watch Bridgestone rides.

Here's a patch that some of you other members may have seen before, but it's a new one to me.

This person has 3 left on his/her eBay auction......

Here's another patch I haven't seen before. I've seen the long rectangle ones like the one pictured on the cap above but not an oval one like this........

Personally I'd leave the patches off.

Well, maybe he could leave the Bridgestone one where it is, so it'll always be close to his heart!  ;D

Thought I'd change the title of this thread to include "other stuff" so there'd be a place to post all the interesting things you might find relating to the BS marque.

Just found these neat vintage keychains on a Japanese site. They sold for approx. $11 US
