History: New research has uncovered this gorgeous cap from Philadelphia’s top Negro league team. The Stars were founded by former Hilldale owner Ed Bolden, and the team was co-owned by Eddie Gottlieb, who also owned the basketball Sphas and Warriors. Among the many great players who donned a Stars uniform were Biz Mackey, Chet Brewer, and Turkey Stearnes. The Stars played at Penmar Park in West Philadelphia.

The soft brim is a nice touch. Beautifully simple hat.
I love the look and feel of this hat. Love the loose brim and the way it forms to your head. Will definitely be purchasing more in the future.
Great. The hat arrived and the style and fit are great.
I ordered the same size as I do in New Era hats and it fit perfectly. It’s a good looking really comfortable hat.
Very nice reproduction of the 1940 Phila. Stars hat. Great that you are preserving ***** Leagues history -- keep it up!
