League: Texas League
History: This city, 30 miles inland from the Gulf of Mexico, was the smallest market in the AA Texas League, but future MLB stars who played for the Rosebuds include Tommy Davis, Dave McNally, and Frank Howard. Former Brooklyn Dodger great Pete Reiser managed the ’59 club to the Texas League regular-season pennant. An interesting fact about the Texas League in this period was that as members of the Pan American Association, each club played 36 games against Mexican League teams, with the two league winners facing off in the Pan-American Series after each league’s respective playoffs.

The cap was well-made and fits very well. The cap is not the first cap I have brought from EFF. I have always been pleased with the quality.
I purchased 3 of these caps. One for myself and two for my children. I love the high quality wool on this one. These caps will last many, many years. My children love the cap as well and also enjoyed learning the history about the team.
