Bubba's Hat

Someone is selling a Bubba Crosby game-used hat on eBay.

The description says:

Former NY Yankee outfielder. Impressive New York Yankees game used hat, worn during the 2005 season, size 7 1/4, great use throughout with lots of staining to sweatband area, Crosby added some personal touches inside bill writing "BC" and "Joshua - Be Strong & Courageous" , Steiner hologram and accompanied by Letter of Authenticity from Steiner Sports. We have rarely encountered Yankees caps with personalizations such as this - we believe this hat was worn during the 2005 ALDS as we have found photos that show writing underneath Crosby's hat but have not definatively photomatched the hat.

I think Joshua - Be Strong & Courageous is a quote from the Bible, not a message to a friend of his named Joshua.

There was writing that looked like this under the bill of the cap Bubba wore during that last game of the 2005 ALDS. You could see it in some of the photos of the collision with Sheff. Bubba's hat flew off, making the arch of writing visible.

Maybe he wrote that on all his hats. seems like the kind of thing you'd do before a big game. Like in the postseason.

This could be the very hat Bubba wore in that infamous heartbreaker of a game.

The seller is asking $99 ($125 for Buy It Now). It certainly is a unique item. I don't think I've ever seen a Bubba Crosby game-used hat on eBay before. But I dunno how much appeal a memento from that game would have for Yankee fans.

UPDATE: Well, someone wanted it. It sold via "Buy it now," around the time I posted about it.
