Cardinals - Roger Maris Game-Worn New Era Hat (Dr. William Gehring Collection)
Roger Maris spent the latter part of his career with the St. Louis Cardinals. Presented is a game worn cap from that 1967-68 era. It's a New Era size 7-3/8. Maris is written in black felt tip in the interior with a 9 also written on the brim. This head topper is well worn with sweat staing in the headband and is beatup on the brim with missing material and seperation. Put it this way, it would be a hatter's nightmare to get it fixed to wear (Who would anyway?) but would be a fabulous display piece in any Yanks or Card(s) carrier's collection.
This comes from the Dr. William Gehring collection. Gehring is an established collector whose vast treasure accumulation was written about during the days of the strike (August 25, 1981) in the Pennsylvania newspaper, The Evening Sun. He collected just about everything and acquired many items directly from the teams and players themselves. This collection also will include mementos from Gehring - i.e. his National Association of Umpires membership card, a signed Joe Brickman umpire school handout to Gehring, a Bill White signed note with newsclipping and a Cardinals envelope.
