At the end of seemingly every major team sport championship, as the
confetti falls, the winning baseball/basketball/football team can be
seen wearing hats newly proclaiming them champions. These hats have
clearly been printed for both teams sometime prior to the game. My
question is, what happens to the losing team's hats? Are they
destroyed? Does anyone get to keep them?

Actually, I was able to get an answer from the NFL. Their losing team
locker room championship hats get donated to an organization called
"world vision," a non-profit disaster reflief organization. But I want
to know about the NBA and MLB hats as well. For instance, I know there
is a hat somewhere that says the Knicks are the 1994 NBA Champions,
and that the Mets won the World Series in 2000. But where?


There is no answer at this time.

I used to live in West Africa and it wasn't out of the ordinary to see
people wearing clothing proclaiming the losing team as winners nor was
it odd to see clothing with misspellings on them.
