    Description

    1953-54 Bob "Bobo" Milliken Signed Game Worn Brooklyn Dodgers Cap. A right-handed relief pitcher and spot starter for the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1954 and 1955, Bobo contributed to the 1953 N.L. pennant winner by posting a respectable 8-4 record. His game worn Bums' cap on offer here displays a blue felt crown and brim with Brooklyn "B" and top button in white. A McAuliffe tag resides in the headband with ""7 1/4" and "Pro KM Cap" stamped to the right. Interior identifiers include "25" on the brim and "Milliken" on the headband, both penned in vintage black and blue laundry markers.

    The cap shows extensive wear from both game action and the passage of time, with hardening/cracking of the interior leather headband and brim cardboard. Also, the fabric of the brim exhibits fading on the outside and tears on the inside. Still, an iconic design and timeless collectible which stands as a signpost for 1950's America and the unforgettable events which unfolded on the baseball diamond during that decade. Deserving of a place in any serious baseball collection. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
