History: The Cannibals were an independent semi-pro team founded in 1895. Their first sojourn in Organized baseball was in 1912, when they finished first in the Class D South Central League (interestingly, there was also a team called the Hannibal Cannibals in 1912, but we digress). The team got its nickname, as many teams did at the time, from a newspaper account of a game. Longview was said to have “eaten” the opposing San Antonio Missionaries. Great short-bill cap.

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.
