    Late 1950's Willie Mays Game Worn San Francisco Giants Cap. The Say Hey Kid was enjoying the early years of the Giants' western relocation when he left this cap behind at Milwaukee County Stadium during a visit to the Braves. There it was acquired by our consignor, a Braves bat boy who supplies this auction with an array of his souvenirs from that exciting time, each with his personal letter of provenance.

    The cap exhibits solid game wear with proper "McAuliffe" labeling at interior leather headband, which bears no size markings but appears to be correct for Mays, who was said to request caps a size too small so that they would fly from his head when he broke into a sprint. His surname is written in black marker on the headband. Visor's cardboard insert is broken, but this does not materially affect display. An exciting opportunity to bring baseball's greatest five-tool player into your personal game used collection. Letter of provenance from Ron Cardo (former Milwaukee County Stadium batboy). LOA from Heritage Auctions.
