For years we have been wanting to highlight the diverse mix of women who pioneered in sports history. Here we start as baseball with the introduction of The EFFA Collection, named after the one and only Effa Manley, a superstar powerhouse in her own right. All of these women from varied backgrounds, age and levels of experience shared one thing in common: Tenacity.
Beginning in the late 1800’s, young girls and grown women caught the love of the game and became an active partner in its shared history. They played, umpired, kept score, owned teams and managed front offices with equal parts skill and passion. We've created some authentic pieces as well as some original designs in this collection. Think of it as a knuckle-curve fastball with some backspin to it. With stories. So many stories. They are what inspired us and are the core of the EFFA Collection. Grab them while you can, because just like on any pro team, change-ups will happen frequently. Your favorite might be gone tomorrow, replaced by a newbie. Hold onto your hats, welcome to the show and here we go.
