Description



No doubt because of its prevalence in iconic Topps baseball card images from the 1950s and 1960s, this style remains the quintessential cap design in the mind's eye of O's fans and collectors. The orange bill was introduced in 1958 and hearkened back to the Orioles' minor-league days in the early 1950s. There were no other changes until 1963 when the bird logo was briefly (and unsuccessfully) replaced by a block-letter "B." A uniform number notation of "30" appears on the bill's underside, indicating potential usage by Al Vincent (1958-59), Bob Mabe (2 games in 1960), Boog Powell (4 games in 1961), Bill Short (5 games in 1962) and Hobie Landrith (60 games in 1962). The size 7-1/8 cap by McAuliffe is in remarkably good condition for being roughly 60 years old. It shows some degree of wear and is otherwise near excellent with a somewhat dried out, but uncracked, bill. LOA from Phil Wood.
