Ball Caps of the 20th Century - Worldwide Baseball - HAVANA BANANAS 1935
HAVANA BANANAS 1935
SKU: 20WWHAV35
$49.00

The Trans-Caribbean, was the only truly international baseball league ever. It had only one season, the winter of 1934-35. Ten teams, Nine countries. What is known about this forgotten entity comes from the astounding research of the Cooperstown Ball Cap Co's old catalogs. The players on the Havana team, the "Bananas" as they came to be known, were plucked from Ernesto Bahia's experimental organic plantation destroyed in the hurricane '35. But truth be told, there were no less than nine Negro Leaguers in the Banana's yellow satin uniforms. Also playing for them under alias was Roberto Estalella, known for his physique as "El Tarzan", before emerging in the majors later that year with the Washington Senators. Purple Wool Crown, Gold Yellow 3" Firm Visor, 2 Tone Gold Embroidered Logo, Leather Sweat Band. Adjustables are Leather with Bronze Buckle.
