Hat Day At Gotham City Arena

Hats, dude. Comic hats. The most visible freak-flag out there. Go get one. Tell the world you truly do not give a crap.

Here’s the closest I could find to a wearable comic book related hat. Not too goofy, could be a sports team at a glance and isn’t a New Era flat-brim (the surest sign you only date women who work at Mr. Subb). This hat is passable… until you get to the “adjustable fit” component. What does that mean in this case? I don’t know. Hopefully one of those wack velcro dealies, because as lame as those are, they’re still cooler than snapbacks. Snapbacks are in right now, but in among people you want nothing to do with.

To give you an idea of how corny I think snapback hats are, check this auction out. I’d rather wear this Jughead-branded headpiece than a snapback. This thing is collectors-only because if you wear it in public people scooch down a few seats from you on subways and buses. Though, for what it’s worth, this hat is way cooler than your average “young skateboarder” beanie.

Here’s today’s clear winner. Put this on and feel all the power and mystique of Gotham’s caped crusader. Or feel like a true weirdo with a tenuous grasp on reality. Either/or.

Betty and Veronica (and Elvis).

On a whim, I started looking for Elvis paraphernalia this afternoon, and I stumbled upon this seemingly unrelated item.

At first glance, it seems odd that the auction title would include the King’s name. And a quick skim around the internet revealed that the starting price is a good 15-20 dollars above the average value of a near mint Betty and Veronica comic for that era and issue range. So what’s the deal?

That’s the deal.

No, seriously, that’s the deal. A one page “Star of the Month” bio on Elvis Presley (if I could reproduce that all-American tri-color font for his name here, I would). A more thorough internet digging shows that, while other issues in the #40-50 range stay down around 80 bucks NM, this issue can be worth up to $150. All because of one single, solitary page.

All hail the King.
