Early Baseball Caps -
There are many versions of the pillbox style baseball cap prominently worn in the 1880ís and 90ís. That style has a simple 3 piece construction with a broad band of wool as the body, a circular top and flexible visor, The Chicago features most commonly two, but as many as 4 broad bands of contrasting fabric running horizontally around it. Typically the fabric bans represented the team color, while the body of the cap matched the uniform color. Over time many variations appeared.
All wool body and fabric stripes featuring a soft 2Ē crushable visor with a green wool underside. The cap is also available without the contrasting stripes. A sturdy black leather sweat band is authentic to the original.
