History: The Blues were a top Yankees affiliate in 1947 and the American Association pennant winner that year. Cliff Mapes led the league in RBIs, and Kansas City led the AA in attendance, with over 379,000 fans going through the turnstiles at Blues Stadium, later renamed Municipal Stadium rebuilt for the arrival of the Athletics from Philadelphia. Rookie Mickey Mantle was briefly sent down to KC in 1951 when he got off to a slow start at the plate in New York.

My wife's great-grandfather played for the Blues in the 1930's, so I had to get this one. Such a good-looking hat. There's nothing quite like an Ebbets wool ballcap.
The most well constructed hat I've ever owned with beyond amazing materials. This hat has become a staple for every outfit I wear.
I wear this hat pretty much whenever I can. It’s very comfortable and the quality is great. I’ve purchased every KC-related hat from Ebbets and never been disappointed.
Thank you Clark!
