    In case you've never seen it, here is Carl Yastremski's----It's like a Burger King crown.

    My brother sent me these pictures, they're from well over 30 years ago at Yaz's house in Boca---

    I saw the crown and thought, wtf? MLB, you can do better :jj:

    Cabrera's was a bit better, but when you call it a Triple Crown, you kind of limit your choices.

    I have no idea why it struck me as being so cheesy, I think it's the combination of the Burger King similarity and the velvet

    Found a pic of Yastrzemski wearing it. Looks even worse on his head.

    There is no such thing as Triple Crown award. That is something the team made for Yaz.

    C'mon, now.
