History: The Mission club of San Francisco moved south in 1938 and became the second incarnation of the Hollywood Stars (the original "Twinks" moved to San Diego in 1936.) After sharing Wrigley Field with the Los Angeles Angels for one season, the Hollywood Stars moved into their brand new home on Fairfax Avenue, Gilmore Field. The club was aptly named as celebrity stockholders included Gary Cooper, Bing Crosby and Barbara Stanwyck.

One of the best!
I picked up this hat on an Ebbets clearance awhile ago and it has to be on of my favorites out of the many styles I own. I am a fan of the old school construction and quality, and have kept it relatively new unlike some of my others which have seen use in my daily rotation. So if you living in Hollywood like I do and want to rep the city in an understated way, this hat is for you!
