  • It's sad really........Roman Pro (way back when) used to produce an excellent "throwback" Brooklyn Dodgers cap, but they are gone. No one seems to be able to replicate that great cap nowadays.

      Roman's "B" didn't really look anything like the one from the 1940s Dodgers caps. Compare and see. Nobody's really done a proper throwback of those.

      • This is my Roman Pro cap from years ago. The blue color has faded to purplish, but the "B" is good:

        • I suppose I could catagorize myself as somewhat of an expert on Brooklyn caps (only because I'm an old-timer). The above Roman Pro cap was (IMHO) better than the caps my Daddy started buying me at Ebbets Field and Roosevelt Stadium. My first Brooklyn cap was purchased for $1 at Ebbets Field in the summer of 1954 (I was turning eight).

            • The diamond cut-out in the above cap is not a cut-out at all! It is a fill-in with blue thread!

              • This one is a little too "boxy"......the bulging portion (by the cut-out) ruins this cap:

                • Why can't some company get these *exactly* right?? There really IS a demand for *real* reproduction Brooklyn caps, as per this site: http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpag...54C0A96F948260

                  It sounds like Cooperstown Caps are the closest.

                  • We've been through this over 6,000 times, but no one seems to be able to get it "right"...........extremely frustrating for Brooklyn-geeks like me. I wear some Brooklyn throwback stuff mostly every day. I have uniforms, jackets, etc........all really cool, but the CAPS are always semi-cheezy.

                    • Brooklyn caps BEFORE the 1939-1957 (blue and white) can be pretty good. Here's an oldie.........circa 1932:

                          I completely agree. What do you think of that New Era '55 World Series commemorative cap, with the round logo on it (in which is the Brooklyn cap itself)? Is that logo accurate? Did they actually *have* an official WS commemorative logo?

                            That cap, I, personally, wouldn't buy. I TRY to be authentic in that I wear Brooklyn stuff that the players wore. Those "logos", etc. I might wear on a tee shirt with shorts to a BBQ.

                              I know what you mean. I have that "purist" streak, too. Hey, when you're talking about baseball's--nay, all of sports'--quintessential team (the Brooklyn Dodgers), you *cannot* skimp!

                              • So what year did they switch from the older style B:

                                To the B that is more commonly seen?
