History: After delaying his baseball career so he could play basketball with the Harlem Globetrotters, Bob Gibson started the season with St. Louis, but was assigned to the Cardinals' Omaha affiliate. Omaha was managed by Joe Schultz, who later was made famous as skipper of the Seattle Pilots, mostly through his written portrayal in Jim Bouton's book "Ball Four", in which Schultz' more colorful aphorisms were quoted.

Love the cap. Understated beauty, the colors are classic and work great together. Keep it up guys!
My experience was excellant. What a great company you have but I MUST point out, the ballcap I bought is a 1958 Omaha Cardinals cap and NOT a 1959, but I knew that before I purchased it. The 1959 ballcap was black on top. My friend has one and I talked to an old Omaha Cards shortstop from 1958 named Lee Tate, and he assured me I bought a 1958. He even sent me color photo of his 1958 uniform as more proof. HOPE TO FIND A 1961 or 1962 OMAHA DODGERS BALLCAP AT YOUR STORE TO PURCHASE. Thank you
