    1975 Pete Rose Game Worn Cincinnati Reds Cap Given to Fan Following Game 7 of the World Series. The Fall Classic is an annual showcase of baseball's best from that given season. The Sporting News went through the arduous task of ranking the top ten World Series. Number three on their list was the seven game affair staged by the Reds and Red Sox in 1975. While everyone seems to remember Carlton Fisk's heroics in Game 6, the series went the way of The Big Red Machine. Trailing 3-2 in the decisive contest, Pete Rose drove home the tying run in the seventh and Joe Morgan's bloop single plated the eventual winning run in the ninth.

    According to the provided letter of provenance, this "Pro KM size 7 1/8" cap was worn by Rose when the team clinched the title. Kenneth Altman and his son Alan were in attendance that autumn night. Following the game, Rose gifted his cap to young Alan. A letter of provenance (Sportsworld stationery) will be provided to the winning bidder which states this claim. A "Pro KM Cap" label is sewn in the cloth headband. "Pro KM Cap" and size are screened as well. "14" is written in thin black marker inside. A stain appears on the underside. Consistent wear shown. Letter of provenance from owner. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
