    Perfect as always! My guys love their Detroit teams#

    The attention to detail is top notch by American Needle and the service provided by Detroit Athletic is excellent.

    This cap is a great looking replica with a short brim and low profile. Brings me back to 1940s when i put it on.
    Do order a size smaller than you would get with a new era fitted cap.

    Old school style with contemporary material. I love these!

    Really like the light wool material and short brim. Great way to be a "Detroit snob" living in Colorado. (-:

    This product is fantastic. Took out of box, took cardboard out of cap, curled bill a little and put on my head. Perfect fit. Good quality. Will buy again.

    It sits a little funky at first, but once you wear a few times you figure out how to pull it off. Super soft and comfortable. But it looks horrible on the shelf. Lol

    Great! True to the 1947 Tigers uniform.

    The cap is beautiful everything I expected and more great quality one thing i was not happy with but I believe the caps then had a leather band inside the cap but I could be wrong but other than that I’m very happy and I already received many compliments on the cap.

    I dig the short brim

    Absolutely love this cap. It is an amazing, spot-on reminder of a long-ago time in the Motor City. You feel like you’re wearing a piece of history. The craftsmanship is outstanding. It sits on your head very differently than a modern cap, which takes a little getting used to. The cap reminds me of all the stories I heard growing up about the “Good Old Days” at the Corner.

1947 Detroit Tigers Vintage Wool Cap

American Needle


SKU: 30211104211

1947 Detroit Tigers home cap as worn by George Kell, Eddie Lake, Hoot Evers, Pat Mullin, Vic Wertz, Hal Newhouser, Dizzy Trout, and Virgil Trucks. From 1947 to 1957, the Tigers wore the orange “D” on their home caps and white “D” on the road for the first and only time. These caps are remarkable in their replication of that era of baseball. Molten wool.
