TF2 Hat Retirement

Valve is retiring a number of Team Fortress 2 hats: the Batter’s Helmet, Soldier’s Stash, Pyro’s Beanie, Demoman’s Fro, Football Helmet, Mining Light, Prussian Pickelhaube, Trophy Belt and Fancy Fedora.

For TF2, this means these hats will no longer be sold in the store, randomly dropped, unboxed as unusuals, or acquired through crafting.  If you don’t have one of these hats, you can now only get them through trading with other players or on the Steam Marketplace.

The blog post also states that advance notice will be given ahead of any other item ‘retirement’: so if this is profitable for Valve, we can probably expect to see other hats disappear regularly from now on.
