Hat signed: "Curt Flood", "Robin Roberts", "Dave May", "Steve Barber", "Denny McLain", "Tom Henrich", "Lou Brock", "Ralph Branca" and one unidentified signature. The Equitable Old Timers Series baseball hat, tan, adjustable. CURT FLOOD (1938-1997), who roamed the St Louis Cardinals outfield from 1956 to 1969, was one of the best defensive center fieldersof all time, once playing 223 consecutive games without an error. A 3-time All-Star and 7-time Gold Glove winner, he played in all seven games of three World Series for the Cardinals. His challenge to the "reserve clause" was unsuccessful, by a 5-4 vote in the US Supreme Court, but helped pave the way to free agency five years later. DENNY McLAIN (born in 1944) first came up in 1963 and he showed early flashes of brilliance, winning 16 games in 1965, 20 in 1966, and 17 in 1967. He might have won 20 in 1967, if not for an unexplained accident at home where he hurt his toe and missed his last six starts. In 1968, McLain was the league MVP, going 31-6 with a 1.96 ERA, 28 complete games, and 280 strikeouts. He was the first 30-game winner since Dizzy Dean in 1934, and helped the Tigers to their first World Championship since 1945. He was All-Star in 1966, 68-69 and won the Cy Young Award twice, 1968-1969. Since leaving baseball, McLain has not fared well, spending two long terms in prison for crimes including racketeering, extortion, narcotics, conspiracy, theft, money-laundering and mail fraud. STEVE BARBER (1938-2007) pitched for 8 Major League teams between 1960 and 1974, but enjoyed his greatest success with the Baltimore Orioles (1960-1967). In 1963, he became the first 20-game winner for the modern Orioles. An All-Star in 1963 and 1966, Barber missed the 1966 World Series, afflicted with injuries which would plague the latter part of his career. He retired with a lifetime record of 121-106. Barber pitched for the Seattle Pilots in the only year of the team's existence, 1969. Outfielder LOU BROCK (b. 1939) spent 20 years in the Majors, the last 16 with the St Louis Cardinals. (The transaction that sent him from the Chicago Cubs to the arch-rival Cardinals in 1964 makes most lists of all-time one-sided trades.) A 7-time All-Star, Brock was baseball's all-time leader in stolen bases from 1974 until1982, with 938. (He remains the all-time National League leader.) He set a major league record by stealing over 50 bases 12 times and a N.L. record with 118 steals in 1974. Brock led the N.L. in stolen bases 8 times. He collected 3,023 hits during his 19-year career and holds the World Series record with a .391 batting average in 21 post-season games for the Cardinals. Only 27 players in baseball history have reached 3,000 Major League hits. Brock entered the Hall of Fame in 1985. Until his death on December 1, 2009, TOMMY HENRICH (b. 1913), nicknamed "Old Reliable," was the oldest living Yankee, the oldest player to have won a World Series, and the last surviving teammate of Lou Gehrig. Henrich spent all his Major League seasons in Yankee pinstripes (1937-1942, 1946-1950, with 3 seasons off for Coast Guard duty in World War II. A 5-time All-Star, Henrich played on 5 World Series winners and figured in some of the Series' most famous games, including hitting the first World Series walk-off home run (Game One, 1949). Outfielder DAVE MAY played professional baseball from 1967 until 1978. He played for the Orioles, Brewers, Braves, Rangers and Pirates. He finished his career with totals of 422 RBIs, 96 Home Runs and a .251 batting average. In 1984 he was inducted into the Delaware Sports Museum and Hall of Fame. RALPH BRANCA (b. 1926), a 3-time All-Star and the winner of 21 games for the Dodgers in 1947, is most remembered as the relief pitcher who gave up the pennant-winning home run to Bobby Thomson ("the shot heard round the world") in the 1951 NL playoff. ROBIN ROBERTS (1926-2010) ranks as the winningest right hander in Phillies history. In his first full season, Roberts won 15 games. In 1950, he helped pitch the Phillies to their first pennant in 35 years, going 20-11. When he won his 20th on the final day of the season at Brooklyn, in a pennant-deciding, 10-inning game, he became the Phillies' first 20-game-winner since Grover Alexander in 1917. He was an All Star 1950-1956 and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1976. Fine condition.
