The first Diamondbacks caps appeared at retail in 1995. The original plan was white for home, black on the road, teal as alternate. The "A" is large, the outline flat gold.

1997 Revised

During 1997 the gold logo outline changes to glittering gold. The "A" is still large. Anyone have a black version?
