What's the best way to celebrate Jackie Robinson breaking Major League Baseball's color barrier? Wearing a cap that features an unabashedly racist caricature of a Native American, of course.

For brief time, you could shell out nearly $40 for a Chief Wahoo hat with a Jackie Robinson patch slapped on the side of it, courtesy of the MLB's online shop.

This comes a few months after the league finally convinced the Indians to drop the Chief Wahoo logo from its uniforms starting in 2019. Both the league and organization agree the logo is inappropriate, but, for some reason, did not decide to drop the logo immediately, paving the way for such an unfortunate product to be sold.
