    1970 Emmett Ashford Game Used Umpire's Cap & Scorer. Unique pairing derives from the collection of Patrick McBride, the luckiest kid in Milwaukee. At age seventeen, the Milwaukee Bucks ballboy was promoted to the team equipment manager, the youngest ever to hold such a position in any American professional sport. His Lew Alcindor and Oscar Robinson NBA Championship season game worn jerseys were featured lots in our February "Platinum Night" auction. McBride likewise worked for the Green Bay Packers and the Milwaukee Brewers, claiming these relics during his time with the latter. Cap features "American League" patch on the peak, and "Pro K-M [size] 7 1/8" stamping at interior leather headband. Aluminum scorer is by "Rawlings." Ashford is noteworthy as the first African-American umpire in Major League baseball. Letter of provenance from Patrick McBride.
