#536676 Hey, does anyone know if there are any Liberty ball caps that are Made in America? All the ones I've found are made in China or Vietnam.

Thanks!

It appears The Game Headwear is based and manufactured in the US. Can't find a definitive answer though.

Liberty could actually make a large display about it if they wanted. A "Put our money where our mouth is" campaign about Made in USA products would probably go over very well with those that support LU.

#536702 I'm looking for some gifts to bring to China that are made in the USA. I personally don't care where stuff is manufactured but in this case, it's obviously more meaningful if the stuff has a local connection and wasn't just shipped from where we'll be and I just brought it back. It's harder than you think.

Walmart is across Wards.
By ballcoach15
#537182 Wal Mart is where I get most of my LU stuff. I can get a nice LU cap at Wal mart for about 10.00. Caps at bookstore run 24.95.

all colleges "jack up" prices on gear. same goes for concession stand prices. a burger , fires, drink costs 12.00. Burger King Whopper Jr. is about 5.00

#537209 LU's Souvenir Cup costs 10 bucks. Seriously. :shock: I didn't even ask how much refills cost. Anybody know?

THE BEST DEAL GOING! Refills for the $10 cup are free at all home football games. I bought two at the first game and nearly floated away from refills at the MS and ISU games. Once you got it...it's good for all the home games...as many refills as you want. The question I have is: Will they honor my "football" cup purchase at basketball games this year?

Seriously? They told me no refills!
By rtb72
#538217 I went to the SFU game and refilled with no problems...x2. I will be at Homecoming so i'm expecting the same. I usually go behind Section 104 to that concession stand and they "Fill'er Up! If they refuse you....I'd inquire as to why it was advertised as free refills for the season. So far...they've honored my purchase. Now granted...I didn't tell them when I purchased the cup, nor did they ask...didn't think it mattered. I just walk up and hand them my cup.....

I also have it visible when I enter the gate and have never been questioned...I figure everybody that bought one does the same.

#538219 UVa's $8 Souvenir Cup has free refills, but for the single game you are attending, and mine had a little green sticker that said so. :fineprint

I didn't recall any such disclaimer, but you did make me curious, so i checked. There isn't a disclaimer on the LU cup. Now, I'm thinking I should ask at the next game.....I'm a little scared of the answer now based on 20somethings experience.

I revise my earlier statement. That was at the scrimmage. They have since changed the cups and the signage to "Bottomless Souvenir Cup" and I verified at the last game it's for the season. Then bought one.

#538239 At the UVa game on Saturday, they were selling ballcaps for $19 inside the stadium; I bought mine after the game at the Cville Walmart--also for 6 dollars.

I remember when a selling point of shopping at Wal Mart was their stuff was Made In The USA. It's the Catch 22 of good paying jobs and inexpensive goods

Some of the most vocal anti-Walmart folks forget to look into their retirement portfolio. Everyone wants their retirement to grow, right? Walmart pays dividends and they wouldn't perform as well without their outsourcing- same with Lowe's, Home Depot, Kohls, etc.

We did it to ourselves... and I doubt that ballcoach cares.

ballcoach is on a pension. Asking HOW that pension is funded might be too complicated. But I bet some of it used to be financed via Casinos!

Bet neither one is as soft as Charmin, but beggars can't be choosers.
