Description

None the worse for their move across the country, the San Francisco Giants authored the National League’s winningest record in the 1960s and reached the postseason in both the 1970s and 1980s, as well. These (4) caps were worn by Giants players during those successful decades. Three game-worn caps and a batting helmet are headlined by: 1960s Mike McCormick Cap size “7-1/2” black wool accessory with “Tim McAuliffe” tag; Alan Embree 1999-2001 Helmet an “ABC” size “7” left-handed batter’s helmet. More on our website.

Mike McCormick Game-Worn Cap a black wool accessory with “SF” embroidered to the front center in orange and an orange button atop the six-point crown suspension. The interior leather sweatband is home to a “Tim McAuliffe” label and stampings that respectively denote size “7-1/2” and “KM Cap.” (A handwritten notation states that McCormick wore the cap.) Based on the tagging, the item dates to the early-1960s. Light wear is evident, though two portions of the bill are bent completely.

Alan Embree 1999-2001 Game-Used Batting Helmet a black plastic shell with “SF” decals adhered to the front center, as well as transparent details respectively denoting “EMBREE” and the “ABC” logo at the base of the neck. The helmet features a right-side protective ear flap (for left-handed batters) and interior padding, a size “7” decal and a “Warning” sticker. Heavy use shows in the form of scuff marks throughout.

1977-1982 Game-Worn Cap a black wool cap with an orange bill, an orange button atop the six-point crown suspension and “SF” embroidered in orange to the front center. The interior sweatband features a “New Ear” label and a size tag whose contents have faded. On the bill’s underside, a handwritten notation of “22” suggests that the cap was worn by Jack Clark. Remnants of what appears to have been an MLB silhouette logo tag narrow that cap the 1982.

1982-1985 Game-Worn Cap a black wool accessory with “SF” embroidered to the front center in orange and an orange button atop the six-point crown suspension. The interior sweatband is home to an MLB silhouette logo tag, a “Pro” tag and a “Sports Specialties” size “7-3/8” tag. The latter manufacturer produced major League caps until 1986. On the bill’s underside, a black marker notation of “38” suggests that the cap was worn by Greg Minton. Solid wear is evident with fading about the “SF” embroidered characters, as well as perspiration-induced soiling about the sweatband.
