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.

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!
A Writer’s Dream
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!
Ebbets got the goods!
I have bought a total of five hats, two for gifts, and two T-shirts from this company. Each time I was very happy with the purchases and the people who received them were smiling wide. This hat in particular is very well produced “stitching wise,” and sits very nice on my head. Sometimes a hat can be too shallow this sit right in between I would say of “the average lids or 47 flat brim hat” and the shallower 5 panel caps. Very nice thick wool and very sturdy brim for this hat. Can sit ontop of my head or can pull it down a bit to cover the fore head. Cant say enough feels great and looks better
