    1971 Danny Murtaugh World Series Game Worn Pittsburgh Pirates Cap with Team Letter. We direct bidders to our listing of a Roberto Clemente bat from the 1971 World Series that also appears within this auction for a more detailed history of this piece, but, in order to provide a brief overview, we note that this cap was delivered along with that bat to a Pirates fan who had sent a lucky Native American doll to the team when they were trailing the Orioles two games to none. The Bucs won four of the next five to take the World Championship, and this cap was part of the "thank you" package that arrived at the fan's home soon afterwards. The gift was reported in a local newspaper, including a photo of the pieces.

    The cap's visor is broken and leaking cardboard underneath, but it will still display nicely from above. Manager Danny Murtaugh's number "40" appears in vintage marker inside. We include copies of the original letter and newspaper clipping that accompanies the Clemente bat, the latter picturing the fan wearing this cap and holding the bat. Copies of letter from Pirates and newspaper clipping picturing cap.
