As in Nippon Professional baseball new era caps? I've always tried to find one, even on japanese teams' sites, but to no avail.

Well, if you're interested in a Yomiuri Giants cap, Ideal Cap Co (former cooperstown ball cap co) makes an awesome cap for around $55. Leather sweatband and thick wool, might be a cheaper alternative!

Nice! I saw that one on ebay too and thought of bidding, was curious to see if New Era would make tags in Japanese but sadly no Sad

I own a replica from Japan. My friend went in 2010 and brought me one back. Not too sure how much they cost over there.

I believe like 54 for the new eras, slightly less for the snapbacks.....though the snapbacks are more like a zipper pull......the tigers was actually the team I liked most......162 bucks and 2 months to make it for the on field......

So New Era does not make the on-fields in the NPB?

There might not be a league-wide exclusive contract. I've seen Giants caps made by nike, so maybe they change from year to year, like how it was in the US before the 80's and 90's. I kinda like it better when different uniform providers were in the league at once, competition helps acceleration of innovation...WHAT MONOPOLY?

the authentics seem to be mizuno atm.....I think maybe majestic and Adidas may have made them as well......i'm not sure the giants even offer an on field, but it's hard to find info.....but the "snapbacks" are pretty cool with the zipper closure......

Thanks a ton for linking this! I've been looking for a Yomiuri Giants cap for a while and getting one with thick wool would be too good to be true. I think I'll send them an email to ask whether they'd be allowed to do a reproduction of Selleck's Chunichi Dragons cap from Mr. Baseball.

That company is going to do serious financial damage to me though: the YG cap, Springfield Isotopes cap Bad News Bears cap are all must-haves. Then there's the NY Knights and Rockford Peaches caps that'll make great gifts. Must start saving...
