Pinky Lee's HatPinky Lee's Derby - Pinky Lee, a popular children's show host of the 1950s wore a trademark checkered jacket, shirt, pants and hat as he performed his energetic act on THE PINKY LEE SHOW/NBC/50 & 54-56. He got the idea of wearing this black and white hat when he donned a checkered hat during a 1930s engagement in Pottstown, Pennsylvania. Having lost his own hat, Lee borrowed the checkered hat from a child whose mother gladly let him keep it.

In the 1950s Max Hess, owner of Hess's Department Store in Allentown, Pennsylvania offered Pinky $10,000 for his hat. Although the hat was tattered and ready to fall apart, he declined to sell it. See also - "Pinky Lee"
