NEW ERA 「Tokyo Katanas」59Fifty Fitted Baseball Cap
NEW ERA has released a Tokyo Katanas 59Ffity fitted cap to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Buffalo Sabres’ fictional draft choice Taro Tsujimoto, an 11th round selection from far-off Japan. The publicity stunt / comedy sketch was crafted by the then General Manager Punch Imlach, in a protest to the length and procedure of the NHL’s amateur draft. The prank did have an impact. The draft was shortened from its 3 day, phone in process. The Legend of Tao continues. The story has taken on mythic proportions, being passed down the generations of Sabers fans. This limited edition cap is available now at the NEW ERA Buffalo Flagship store.
