Putting an end to a four-year streak of dreadful last place finishes, the 1962 Philadelphia Phillies came up winners with an 81-80 record. One of the more vital cogs in the Phils machine was relief pitcher Jack Baldschun, who had his best year in '62 with a record of 12-7. Tip your hat to this on the rise squad and its valued closer, with this 1962 Phillies cap game-worn by Baldschun. Showing moderate age-appropriate wear, this red topper is adorned on the front with a classically styled Phillies "P" logo. While this crimson cap retains a pleasing shape, a few pinpoint moth holes are noted near the white button on top, however these tiny holes are unobtrusive to display appeal. Baldschun's uniform number "29" is written on the underside of the brim and the interior sweatband is toned all around to a medium cream shade. The band is stamped at rear with the size "7-1/8", to the right of the centered "Wilson" factory tag which is securely stitched on. The size is repeated on the reverse side of the sweatband, which is also stamped with the code "EWC", noted on the accompanying expert LOA from Phil Wood as indication of the date of manufacture being "April, 1962".
