Hiroshima Carp 1958 Vintage Ballcap Cap by EBBETS FIELD FLANNELS

:

The Hiroshima Professional Baseball team in Japan was founded in the wake of the atomic bomb, as part of the reconstruction plan.  The Carp compete in the NPB's Central League. The team was so underfunded in their early days, that in 1953 each player was only issued one complete uniform. The Carp called  Hiroshima Municipal Stadium their home field until 2008. Pictured here is a faithful reproduction of the on-field cap from the 1958 season. The hat is made of a  Navy wool broadcloth.  Attached to the front is a two-tone felt emblem.
