History: Hiroshima established a professional baseball team as part of the city's reconstruction efforts after the atomic bomb devastation in 1945. The Carp ("Koi" in Japanese)  were perennially underfunded, and were so poor that in 1953 they could only afford to issue one uniform per player. The Carp played in Hiroshima Municipal Stadium until 2008.

Pretty good purchase

I bought this for someone as a gift. The cap looked great, the fit was good, but I didn't expect/didn't realize that the bill was soft and unstructured rather than stiff. Something to consider.

Hiroshima Carp 1958 Vintage

Purchased this as a gift for a Ebbets Field collectoe and was very well received. The 8-panel detail is a great touch!
