- A baseball cap from Prince’s Jam of the Year Tour 1997. The cap is made of a black cotton-polyester blend fabric and has a low crown profile. The cap's stiff bill is formed by black fabric on top and green fabric on the underside stitched onto cardboard. White embroidered text across the crown reads: [emancipation]. Embroidered on both the proper left and proper right sides of the cap, in yellow thread, is the hybrid male-female symbol representing the Artist Formerly Known as Prince. The back of the cap has a plastic snap closure. Above the adjuster, text embroidered in white thread reads: [NPG]. Below the white text is black embroidered text: [RECORDS]. The interior of the cap has stiffener underneath the two (2) center crown panels of the cap. There is one (1) grommet surrounded by thread in the center of each of the six (6) panels that make up the cap, and one (1) fabric-covered rivet fastener at the top of the crown. A sweatband of the same black material as the cap is stitched along the cap edge. At the interior proper left side is a manufacturer's tag that reads: [YUPOONG/ 60% Cotton/ 40% Polyester/ One Size Fits All/ Made In/ Domincan Republic].
