Founded in 1988, Ebbets Field Flannels have become renowned for their ability to manufacture exact replicas of genuine mid-Century American sportswear apparel. Inspired by lesser-known independent league teams and dedicated to using original materials and techniques, the brand are committed to staying faithful to original designs. Ebbets Field Flannels has grown to become the finest producer of vintage American baseball attire.
The New York Knickerbockers 1912 Ballcap is hand-sewn from genuine wool baseball cloth. They played in the United States Baseball League, which was the mother of all research challenges as it was trying to establish a "major" league independent of the organised baseball structure. The Knickerbocker's played at the Bronx Oval, but had league folded by June 5th, after only one year.
