I have not seen any yellow hats that have the grand sport script. I know of two for Corvette and corvette racing.

There is plenty of malls that sell just hats. They can embroider any thing you want on it.. They can go on line and get any pic and embroider it on a hat..

Pretty sure that is illigal as copyright infringement. Unless they have permission to embroider the grand sport script and corvette flag the shop could get sued and have their retail license revoked. Unless they are shady, they will most likely tell you no.

As for making up one, there will need to be a market for it. GM charges about $10k for use of their intellectual property PER ITEM. So you need to sell enough hats to cover 10k,not including the cost of the hat and the cost to embroider it before you break even. I know because I sell corvette apparel for fun on the side. You may remember my threads asking for opionins on a logo for chariots auto. I say this so you know I am not just making up numbers. And these numbers are from a couple years ago, so it could be more now.

Not a lot of colors period for the GS hats, black is about all I see. Not sure why but a lot of stingray and corvette flag hats but not so much for the GS.

Buy a Black hat and send it to me.. I will spray paint it any yellow you want? Don't want no one to take you to court for having one embroidered at the mall.. 😂😂😂😂🙈🙈🙈

If it was up to me? I would sell the car and find a different color Grand sport that matches the color of hats out.. That's just me tho..

Yes, but it would be tedious and leave little pin holes.

Unfortunately I would have to agree. But... the Racing would appear as a shadow.
