Brooklyn Robins / Brooklyn Dodgers Caps History


The Dodgers tore the heart out of Brooklyn when they left for Los Angeles after the 1957 season. Some great info on their caps from Uni Watch here and here.

The team is called the Brooklyn Robins 1914-31.

In 1938 the home cap was white, the road cap blue.

1946-48

Evberyone is a capmaker for the Dodgers now.

Coane

Coane supplied caps briefly in the 1940's.

MacGregor GoldSmith

Coinciding with MacGregor being a jersey supplier in 1946-48, they also supplied caps which had a blue button instead of white. I don't see many players in photos with blue button caps, seems not many players used MacGregor caps.

It seems mostly Spalding caps were used in this period, 1946-48.

MacGregor GoldSmith

MacGregor logos were embroidered on a patch in 1948, and still had a blue button. These were used, but not by many players it seems.

1949-50

Rawlings

Rawlings cap logos were embroidered onto a patch in 1949-50.

Tim McAuliffe by Leslie

McAuliffe caps, made by Leslie, were ordered for the 1949 World Series and were used in 1950. Despite the signatures, this looks like a 1950 (maybe 49) model, pre-Leslie - note 8 rows of brim stiching instead of 7.

1951

Now Rawlings logos are embroidered directly.

Rawlings

Wilson

The team had Wilson caps but not sure if those were worn. Might have just been fan giveaways.

1951-54

Tim McAuliffe by Leslie

Now using McAuliffe exclusively.

The KM Pro stamp in the sweatband first appeared in 1953.

1955-57

Tim McAuliffe/KM Pro

McAuliffe sadly changes to a notch-less logo which is an exact knockoff of the Red Sox logo.

After the 1957 season the Dodgers relocate to Los Angeles.
