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).

I'm a big fan of the design of New Mexico's flag, combined with an amazing red color and texture that you can't get with polyester hats from New Era and all them. This is my favorite hat I've had in a long time and will last years and years. I love how clean the rest of the hat is too like all Ebbets hats, no logo on the back, sides, or bill, just the team logo and that's it. Very sharp and minimal.
The cap is beautifully crafted down to every last detail. Great memories from my teenage years watching the Dukes play at the Albuquerque sports stadium.
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!
