    Today at the USO I wore my cap for sun-protection purposes, but later I got it signed. It's a Rafa dri-fit cap, do you think I should still wear it for playing and casual purposes?

    I would continue to wear it at the USO, if you are still there, and have it signed by other players you meet- then when you go home save it for display or store it in a drawer.

    If you have left the open, and have just the one signature, I think, then, it would depend on the signature.

    I wouldn't unless you don't like the player. That being said I do collect autographs so my opinion will probably vary from most.

    Robson has a really good future, maybe top 10...I never wear autographed apparel, so I'm waiting for a couple of more opinions.

    I might wear it though, because I got a ball signed by her too

    Laura Robson is perhaps the cutest tennis player I've ever seen. Cuter than Ivanovic a couple years ago and definitely Maria.

    I would not wear the autographed hat.
    Just buy another hat for playing. You can get rafa hat as low as $10 haha.
    someone might be interested in her autographed hat and might pay more than what you paid for the rafa hat.
    I had a similar situation once. I had a chance to get Isner's autograph and had Nike trend woven hat. I thought about getting his autograph but last min, I change my mind because trend woven hat was more important than Isner's autograph hahaha.

    If you wash the hat several times, the autograph will be disappeared or ruin your hat.

    Yeah the problem is...it's the anthracite/peach hat and I cannot find it anywhere for pretty cheap. Anyone know where to get it for under $20

    I have a GHOAT, with Nadal, Isner, Blake, Sweeting, Murray signatures I got in Cincinnati 2011; I would never wear it.
