Product History:

  • Made in the USA limited edition ballcap
  • Genuine travel gray wool broadcloth with Kelly green soutache
  • White embroidered "E" on red and Kelly green felt 
  • 3" soft visor in Kelly green wool with gold satin under visor

League: Union League (Liga Union)

History: This team was initially a complete mystery to us. We only had a few photographs, and no identification other than the script "E" on the jersey and cap. An intrepid customer answered the call and identified the team as "Express" from the Union League of Mexico circa 1918. The Union League pre-dates the formation of the Mexican League by several years. Two layer felt with embroidery, sewn soutache between panels, soft visor.

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.
