League: Nippon Professional Baseball

History: This team was founded in 1946, the first year of post-war Japanese baseball. The original name of the club was Gold Star. The team was purchased by the Daiei Film Co. in 1949 and changed its name to the Daiei Stars. When Japanese professional baseball split into two leagues in 1950, the Stars joined the Pacific League. The Tokyo-based team merged with the Takahashi Unions in 1957.

Measuring Guide

We offer three kinds of ballcap visors:

Pre-1940 ballcaps were made with soft visors so players could fold them up and put them in their back pockets. Later visors were done in standard (stiff visor) or short (also a soft visor). Check the product details to see which type of visor each cap has.
