PATROL SQUADRON 45 BALL CAP RED
Here we've worked with Ebbets to replicate the squadron ball cap worn by VP-45 in the 50s and early 60s. During this period they flew the mighty P5M Marlin seaplane which was the last flying boat ever used by the USN. On their last deployment in 1962 they were stationed at Naval Air Station Guantanamo Bay during the Cuban Missile Crisis.

Founded in 1988, Ebbets Field Flannels was born from founder, Jerry Cohen's lifelong obsession with sports emblems and uniforms. As a youngster growing up in Brooklyn he would purchase baseball cards to see the uniform changes and colors rather than for the players. Ebbets built their business by focusing on the neglected history of non-major league teams such as those that made up the Negro leagues and pre-1958 Pacific Coast League. Today, everything continues to be made in the USA with pride and a respect for the craftsmanship of simpler time.
