Today we have recieved our first batch of the classic reproduction baseball hats from Seattle based Ebbets Field!

Ebbets Field stay true to the original garments, using original materials and manufacturing techniques. With our first shipment we recived 6 different styles, ranging from independent teams to the Cuban, International, Southern and Negro leagues, with styles dating back to the 1930's and 1940's.

To make things a little simpler, our Ebbets Field hats are exclusively made using adjustable leather straps, so you don't have to worry about sizing!

The House Of David was a religious community that started playing baseball around 1913. By 1920, the team was "barnstorming" around the country, earning money for the colony, and using the team as a way to preach to potential members. Contrary to common belief, the House Of David was not a jewish community, but considered themselves Christian Israelites and followed the faith that was originally started by Joanna Southcott in the 1600's. This cap is a reproduction of the cap that the team wore in 1935.
