History: The Unions were based in Kawasaki, Japan. The team was established in 1954 and named the Takahashi Unions after their owner. Tombow Pencil bought a share of the club in 1955. Legendary Japanese pitcher Victor Starffin won his 300th game while a member of the Unions. The team merged with the Daiei Stars in 1957, and the new club became known as the Daiei Unions.

This is a friggin' great hat! It wears well, and when it's broken in, it will fit your mellon like nothing else in your hat arsenal. One word to the wise: you do need to break this hat in. It's not a "flex fit" insta-cap. You gotta lovingly wear this bad boy over time to get the full effect. But when you do, it will be akin to your favorite pair of blue jeans.
Favorite hat within 60 seconds of putting it on. Quality and design are top notch. Went back to the site the same day to hunt more hats. Can’t wait for more
Very high quality.
Living in the United Kingdom, it's always a pleasure to wear Ebbets' ball caps as very few people have them over here, or indeed know about them! I have been purchasing your ball caps for a few years now and I'm always encouraged by the response I get to them. I usually opt for the unusual designs, like the Tombow Unions cap, as it sets you apart. A couple of good friends have now 'seen the light' and have started purchasing ball caps and other products form your store. Please keep up the good work with bringing us new and unusual classic designs. Thanks to everyone at E F F!
I am a professional writer and long ago discovered that Towbow pencils are by far the best to write with. So it’s really cool to have a cap and a sweater with the same logo as my favorite writing implements! And of course top quality as always with Ebetts!
