History: As in professional baseball, America's Black Citizens were for many decades shut out of participation in the fraternal organizations which were a major part of the social fabric in the United States. African-Americans therefore created their own organizations, and the Improved Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, or "Black Elks" - were formed in 1899. The Monarch Lodge #45 in Harlem was one of the most important local chapters of the Black Elks. They were involved in the fight for fair labor practices and many other social justice causes. They also fielded a fine baseball team, called the Mi-Tee Monarchs. We were fortunate to see color photographs of this historic 8-panel cap, and it is one of our current favorites.

This is my second 8 panel cap from Ebbets. Amazing quality, true to the history and very comfortable. I love the 8 panel hat.
Everything about this cap is excellent. The quality of material probably stands out the most. The satin under visor and taping are nice touches and I love the colour and feel of the wool. I have been eying up an 8-panel for a while (are those 8 panel Hiroshima Carp caps coming back?) and finding a hidden gem from the ***** leagues had me sold. Love the histories behind the caps and it got me searching back down the rabbit hole of the ***** leagues. I would love more information as the Mi-Tee Monarchs seem to be in the more elusive levels of the ***** leagues. The fit is perfect and love the soft visor and less structured crown. I have a new era low crown fitted in the same size and the Ebbets sits just snug enough where my new era is looser. Might be the hard visor and structuring of the low crown, but the quality of Ebbets shines in comparison. This is the first product I've gotten from Ebbets and it exceeds expectations.
Just a unique feel. It fits perfectly, and cool to honor Black Baseball, especially for a Fraternal Lodge involved in the fight for rights in the workplace and social justice.
