Arguably the Negro National League’s all-time greatest team, the Kansas City Monarchs won five consecutive NNL championships during the 1920s and went on to claim six more titles between 1937 and 1950 as members of the NAL. Monarch greats included Satchel Paige, Buck O’Neil, and even Jackie Robinson played for the 1945 squad before being scouted by Branch Rickey of the Brooklyn Dodgers.
This authentic 1942 reproduction from Ebbets Field is made in small batches from vintage baseball flannel and detailed with the original felt KC logo and rayon piping between the panels. Secured with an adjustable genuine leather strap for a comfortable fit.
