Sam's Hat was a scrapped promotional cosmetic item for all classes. It appeared to be a team-colored version of the hat worn by the eponymous Sam from the Sam & Max franchise.
This item was to be released with Max's Severed Head, the Lugermorph, and the Big Kill as part of the week-long cross-promotion for purchasing Sam & Max: The Devil's Playhouse via Steam. It was cut due to the modeling team having trouble getting the hat to fit each class properly. Team-specific textures remained in the game files during and beyond the promotion, but were later removed during an unknown patch. It has, however, returned in the March 12, 2013 Patch as the Bloodhound in Poker Night 2, however, wearable by the Sniper and the Spy only.
