Archive Collection Alternate Jersey Cap
This black cap features a black snapback and includes a fully embroidered black and white logo on the front with white embroidered stripes.
This black and white snapback is a nod to the 1929 sweater. Although the more modern designs for the Blackhawks jersey feature a wide-array of colors, the original scheme when the franchise was born in 1926 relied on basic black and white. That included the famous logo.
Notice that then, it was “Black Hawks” - the original spelling the franchise would use until 1986.
The Indian head is emblematic of Black Hawk, the Sauk Indian leader who defended the Sauk and Fox lands along the Rock River in Illinois. The logo has come to represent perseverance, tenacity and courage, all characteristics of the team that shares the famous Sauk leader's name.
Modifications to the Indian Head itself have been made from year to year, such as changing the colors of the feathers or slight altering of the facial expression. But for the most part, the icon has remained the same as it was in the beginning.
