A slice of home in a ballcap

I love my Brown University Vintage Ballcap. I have been a loyal Ebbets Field Flannels customer since the 90s. I still have my first SF Seals cap and it has made the cross country transfer and retirement from the military. The Brown University 1959 Ballcap is just the latest to my collection. It reminds me of home as a native Rhode Islander and hangs next to my 1972 Pawtucket Red Sox hat (also from Ebbets Field). The Brown University cap is extremely well made just like the other two mentioned. it runs true to size as it is the fitted version (7 3/8). Like all my other ballcaps I consistently get complements on it and asked “Where did you get it” Well worth the purchase price.

Great cap! A+

This cap was in my first order of 3 hats I made with Ebbets. The quality is outstanding - and their customer service is second to none. I'll be joining the Ebbets cult now and become a life long customer.
