League: Japanese Baseball
History: Hiroshima established a professional baseball team as part of the city's reconstruction efforts after the atomic bomb devastation in 1945. The Carp ("Koi" in Japanese) were perennially underfunded, and were so poor that in 1953 they could only afford to issue one uniform per player. The Carp played in Hiroshima Municipal Stadium until 2008.

I love it!
Dude! You guys rock. The hat is awesome and I’ve worn it almost everyday since I got it. I bought it on a Wednesday morning and it arrived that Friday. You guys are on your game! I own a small business and you guys just set a new standard for me! Keep up the great work! Thanks, Alan

Hiroshima Carp Cap
It's fantastic! I absolutely love it.
An 8 Panel Wonder
It’s not often you run across an 8 panel ball cap. Most ballcaps today have the now traditional 6 panel crown. The attention to detail and quality is fantastic. And with the soft bill and leather liner, it makes this cap of the Nippon Professional Baseball’s Hiroshima Carp a true winner.
