Baseball’s been around since the 1840s, but team
hats have taken many shapes over the years before
becoming the iconic brimmed ballcap we know and
love today. In the late 1800s, players wore hats of their
choosing—pillbox, hard caps, soft caps (some were
even made of straw).

But it wasn’t until the early 1900s that stitched
emblems made their first appearance, when the Detroit
Tigers showed up to the field with matching orange
tigers on their caps

Today, it’s hard to find the same quality cap from baseball’s golden years.

That’s why we’re dedicated to digging through
history—from the early 20th century to the 1970s—to
bring back the relics of baseball’s bygone eras, made
just as meticulously as the real deal. Putting on one of
our authentic wool ballcaps might just get you as close
to Babe Ruth as you’ll ever feel.

Authentic Ballcap Features

 

HISTORY

YOU CAN FEEL

This isn’t just a retro logo on any old hat—it’s a hand-sewn piece of history.

Each of our ballcaps is meticulously researched to match the same design, lettering, stitching, and construction as the real deal.

Whether six-panel or eight-panel, standard visor or short, our hand-sewn felt caps are made to match the ones worn by the greats—stitch for stitch.

QUALITY

YOU CAN TRUST

Ebbets caps are made using wool broadcloth and vintage uniform fabric to stand the test of time—just like the great players they’re inspired by.

The soft crown of an Ebbets hat is part of what makes it special. We use a proprietary weave and natural hair cloth—no polyester—to give the crown that signature soft, supple feel that holds its shape.

CRAFTED TO LAST A LIFETIME

(OR A FEW)

Our allegiance to history means we want your cap to last a lifetime, too.

Each ballcap is crafted by hand right here in America using the best
quality fabrics and stitching, so that yours can become a relic in its
own right.
