  • Brooklyn Dodgers cap

    Over the years I've been picking up all sorts of sports memorabilia. Today I was fortunate enough to pick up a near-mint condition Brooklyn Dodgers cap. It has ONE small (bigger than a pencil tip, smaller than a Sharpie tip) moth hole a half-inch up from the bottom edge and a few inches back from the right ear of the wearer.

    The cap is a KM Pro Cap, 100% wool. The label is mint and the KM Pro Cap stamping is mint. The 7 3/8 size stamping is VERY legible. The leather sweatband is mint. The visor is flat, never shaped. The white button and the stitched B are a little dirty, but look like they can be spot-cleaned. The cap appears unworn. I think the B and the button got soiled because it was in a guy's collection of dozens of other hats.

    I don't want to sell this cap, but was wondering what something like this sells for. I'm guessing that it's "from the day." I don't think KM Pro Cap was in the business of making "throwbacks."

    Any help from any knowledgeable folks would be appreciated. Thanks for your time.

    P.S. I paid five dollars for the cap.

    Do you have a good picture of it? Any idea of its year of manufacture?

      Brooklyn cap info

      I have no idea of manufacture date. I was told that KM became McAuliffe which became Devon, which then moved to Buffalo (from Boston) to become New Era.

      Also, I forgot to mention that the INSIDE two panels (behind the embroidered B) have a brown, beige and white zig-zag, herringbone pattern to the fabric. I thought that might help date it.

      I'll provide photos as soon as I am able.

      Thanks for the interest.
