    The New York Cubans were formed in 1935 as a part of the Negro National League but actually played their games in Paterson, New Jersey. The New York Cubans were the first Negro League team to have non- African-American players. The Cubans won the Negro League World Series in 1947, 3 years before the final season of Negro League Baseball. The Cubans also had two players inducted into the Hall of Fame, Martin Dihigo and Tetelo Vargas.

    This cap was manufactured by our friends at American Needle. This hat has a curved visor and adjustable back-strap.

    American Needle was founded in 1918 as an importer of sewing needles and through three generations of change, they have become a world renowned headwear and apparel manufacturing company.
