Universal was one of the dopest 90s snapback hat brands. They were always kinda under the radar, never really competing with the big boys. And they never had a signature line per se – no one hat style you could associate with them – but their Prosona is one of Agora Vintage’s all time faves, by any brand.
While Universal made NBA snaps too, this line was purely NFL. The Prosona name came from mixing the words “professional” and “persona.” Each hat would come with its own unique hang tag, with a picture associated with the team (not unlike the Starter Image Collection premise.)
The type font on each hat looks similar, but each one is in fact tweaked to mirror the personality of the team. The Redskins for instance, has tribal style affections to the font face, and a feathered Native American headpiece attached to the R. The Seahawks has a spiky, beak-like edge to the font, while the Oilers font is assembled by what looks like piping.
The hats are neatly topped off with the contrast snap and threading on the air holes. Green under brim as standard. The Prosona line does not come with the universal logo on the back, which is a shame, because its dope. See the bulls pictured below.
