Osaka Tigers 1940—God is in the Details!

A-1 quality and intense attention to detail…from the applique to the green satin undervisor…the fit..fabric…feel—EVERY aspect is a truly exceptional and unique experience.

I have 87 EFF caps and counting. The Osaka Tigers cap illustrates why my addiction requires no explanation.

There is simply NO BETTER ballcap available anywhere else. Look at this Osaka Tigers number-- it's wearable baseball history AND art. EFF has been making incredible caps for 30 years now, and they continue to improve on perfection. The black cotton sweatband is a huge improvement in comfort over the leather ones employed in years past, and the fit is more consistent than ever before. The deeply saturated colors of the athletic wool are without equal. Keep 'em coming, EFF!

Great as always!

Great as always! I own several Ebbets fields hats. Some have lost their way from apt to apt to house. Most of which are from 97-05. I’ll continue the collection. Thank you for quality work.

Beautiful Vintage Design, Attention to Detail Could be Better

I love this hat! The grey wool with the black brim are a beautiful combo. Add a vintage tiger, what could be better? This a great design. My only minor complaint is with some of the attention to detail on the inside of my particular cap. The EFF logo on the inside was not perfectly or completed centered when it was stitched in. Just a minor thing that no one will see, but it makes you wonder how closely these are inspected before they are sent out. Great cap, though! Buy one!
