League: Negro American League
History: The Red Sox began play in 1921 as members of the Negro Southern League. They became a charter member of the Negro American League in 1937, playing home games at Martin Stadium and Russwood Field, home of the Southern Association's Memphis Chicks. Notable Red Sox players included African-American country & western singer Charley Pride, who pitched for Memphis in 1952, and later played for several years in the minor leagues. Memphis was one of the few black clubs to survive MLB integration, hanging on until 1960.

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!
I've worn fitted American Needle and New Era MLB hats for years, but this is my first hat from Ebbets. The only thing I didn't like about it initially was the flat brim, but I was able to achieve the perfect curve by initially using the coffee mug trick (Google it), then wearing the hat a little bit. The quality and craftsmanship of this hat is such that I expect that it will last the rest of my life.
