History: Josh Gibson’s Baseball Hall of Fame plaque sums up his career in simple terms. He is “considered the greatest slugger in the Negro Baseball Leagues.”  Segregation denied him and all Negro League players the opportunity to play alongside their White peers, but organized Black Baseball established a playing field for thousands of Negro Leaguers to compete and excel. A quiet leader who let his bat and glove do the talking, we now know through MLB’s recognition that the Negro Leagues are “Major Leagues” and that we can call him one of the greatest sluggers of all time, period!

Measuring Guide

We offer three kinds of ballcap visors:

Pre-1940 ballcaps were made with soft visors so players could fold them up and put them in their back pockets. Later visors were done in standard (stiff visor) or short (also a soft visor). Check the product details to see which type of visor each cap has.
