Solid Color Caps -
Stripes where first introduced on clothing in the 13th century, but were considered devil’s cloth. Notwithstanding this, early baseball clubs had boldly striped uniforms. Pinstripes as a pattern of long stripes along the length of the uniforms were first worn in 1888 by the Washington, Detroit and Brooklyn teams. The Chicago Cubs were the first Major League team to don them in 1907, followed by the Giants in 1910 and eventually every Major League team would wear a set with lone exception of the St. Louis Browns.
The standard 1940's, soft-crown, wool flannel cap with contrasting colors in the visor, button and eyelets. Inside is a horsehair front backing and leather sweat band. The 3” visor is the modern length and comes with a dark green under visor.
