Hat World, Inc. was founded in the 1990s by partners Glenn Campbell and Scott Molander, because they believed that a hat labeled with a favorite sports team was an impulse buy anyone could afford to make. Since the company sold over 6,000 hats during its first holiday season, clearly, they were right. Hat World, Inc. purchased LIDS Corporation in 2001, and now operates over 1,000 retail outlets in malls and airports across the country, as well as the website Lids.com. Shop here for hats in a variety of styles emblazoned with your favorite sports’ team or player’s name or logo, including those in the MLB, NFL, NBA, NHL, MLS, as well as college sports, auto racing and international sports teams. Although best-known for its baseball caps, the company also sells sports-themed apparel for men and women, accessories and novelties, including collectibles, stickers, keychains, cellphone accessories and much more.
