    1940's Ruth Richard Game Used Catcher's Mitt & Cap Attributed to Rockford Peaches. If there were a Hall of Fame for the All-American Girls Professional League, Ruth Richard would be a charter member. We give Cooperstown a nod for recognizing the all-women league in 1988 with a wing in the Baseball Hall of Fame. Very few mementos have survived from the league which inspired the hit movie League of Their Own. This catcher's mitt and game-worn cap were purchased from Richard years ago and were originally offered in Leland's in 1998. The glove and cap (no size indicated) came from Richard's personal collection. The glove shows heavy use and has hardened from years of storage. The cap shows excellent use as well. Richard signed both pieces and inscribed "Rockford Peaches 1947-54 HOF '88" in silver paint pen. LOA from Heritage Auctions. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA (autograph).
