League: Pacific Coast League
History: Even though they finished fourth in the PCL’s East Division, the Dukes had three players lead the league in offensive categories, with Danny Walton winning the home run, RBI, and hits categories. Don Cardoza hit .356, and Henry Cruz had 174 hits. Walton was a legendary slugger in the minor leagues, but never replicated his success in the Majors, playing for eight different clubs (including the Seattle Pilots, their one year of existence).

Pic does no justice
This hat is so well made that it makes me wonder why I spend money on any other brand. This particular hat, 1977 Albuquerque Dukes, is so much better in person and on my head in comparison to the picture. Don’t get me wrong, the pic isn’t lacking in quality, it just doesn’t quite capture the actual feel and look of the hat in person. New favorite hat!
My new favorite hat
I've worn fitted American Needle and New Era MLB hats for years, but this is my first hat from Ebbets. The only thing I didn't like about it initially was the flat brim, but I was able to achieve the perfect curve by initially using the coffee mug trick (Google it), then wearing the hat a little bit. The quality and craftsmanship of this hat is such that I expect that it will last the rest of my life.
