    Circa 1982 Willie Stargell Game Worn Pittsburgh Pirates Cap. Willie Stargell was a hero to millions. It didn't matter if you were a Pirates fan or not, the affable Pops had an aura around him. Gifted to our consignor, a friend of Stargell's, is this "New Era [size] 7 1/4" pillbox style cap. Our consignor, who included a detailed letter of provenance, created Stargell's Christmas cards in the 1980's and became a friend. Stargell invited her to a game and gave her his game worn cap following a contest. The cap shows great wear and has "VIII" written in blue marker on the underside. Stargell stars were previously on the cap but removed. Three labels are secured on the headband: "Major League Baseball," "New Era" and "[size] 7 1/4." The bill has one major crease. Also included are 15 examples of Stargell's signature, used as a template for his Christmas card. Letter of provenance from Lorna Laccone, friend of Willie Stargell. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
