Not only did Katz sell everything from medicine to fishing lures, they sponsored a team in the amateur Ban Johnson Baseball League. One of the most distinctive and fun caps we have ever seen, this one comes to us from EFF customer and friend Paul Carr.

LOVE these hats
Having several, they all fit wonderful and go with anything I’m wearing. This hat, though, definitely get the most attention and compliments!
Wonderful Hat and Quality
Loved the hat. Always excellent quality and craftsmanship.
Don't know exact number but this is at least my 10th hat from Ebbets, they are all amazing quality and I'm never disappointed. Their customer service is also great. Highly recommend.
The Best Made
I'm an old timer now and have been collecting baseball caps (hats) for 40 years... I've got many of the company that makes the current MLB caps in boxes and others made by companies that made MLB hats... Let me say this however, nobody makes a better vintage and correct to the period hat than Ebbets Field, period...! These are beautifully made caps and I have a few, including this favorite of mine the Katz ball cap with the KITTY embroidered on it...! This hat gets their attention, as I have had many comment on it, especially the young ladies.... Their details are first class, such as the satin taping on the inside of the crown, the superb blocking that Ebbets does, the felt lettering or embroidery and the satin under the bill...! The attention to detail is the best their is.... Love these hats and you won't find any better and at the sale prices that Ebbets has from time to time, they are affordable... Highly recommend...!
It's a beauty. Seems high quality. Order your hat a size bigger than new era. Shipping to Canada plus duty at customs is rough but it's a great hat, Brent.
