70s Mercy Sakes CB Radio Snapback Hat

This 70s snapback cap features the old trucker slang "Mercy Sakes." The saying expresses exasperation and often used by truckers during their banter over CB radios. It was uttered many times in Smokey and the Bandit, a movie about two truckers on a mission to illegally transport beer in the 1970s. CW McCall also wrote a country song in 1975 called "Convoy" which comprised of dialogue between truckers over CB.

This hat features a snapback closure.

This item is from the estate of Craig MacGregor, the bassist for the band Foghat in the 1970s, 80s, and again in the 2000’s.  The item was owned by Craig, a collector of t-shirts, and stored for some time in a basement before it came into our possession.  As a result there may be some lingering basement odor. All items are authentic pieces of rock and roll history and in many cases are one-of-a-kind.  Further authentication and chain-of-custody can be provided upon request.
