St. Pete artist Chad Mize designs new limited edition Tampa Bay Rays hats

So when’s the adult version come out?

Kids get to have all the fun. Just look at this limited-edition Tampa Bay Rays hat designed by Tampa Bay artist and community hero Chad Mize (creator of BOTB-winning art merch like Gay Pride Cat and the iconic St. Pete T-shirts).

Just 6,500 little humans will get their hands on this puppy when Major League Baseball’s best team faces off against its possibly most overrated one, The New York Yankees, on May 12 at Tropicana Field.

This really does beat any bobblehead, arm sleeve or bendable keychain any day. So when’s the adult version come out, Rays?

See the full promotional schedule via, and go visit Mize’s St. Petersburg gallery ASAP.
