Presented is an early 1970s Pittsburgh Pirates "Mustard" color cap, in Excellent condition, as the cap appears unused. The Pirates of the early '70s dominated the East Division of the National League as they took the Division crown in every year between 1970-74, except for '73. The Pirates' best season in this time period was 1971 when they won the World Series in seven games against the Baltimore Orioles. Hall of Famers Roberto Clemente, Bill Mazeroski, and Willie "Pop" Stargell were on the Pirates when these mustard color caps were worn, and both Clemente and Stargell had great seasons in '71: Clemente batted .341, and Stargell hit .295, with 48 homers and 125 RBIs. The cap has a black bill and a black letter P. The rest of the cap is mustard color. The Pirates even used some mustard color on the Bicentennial pillbox caps that they wore from 1976 through 1986. The cap has a "New Era" manufacturer's tag on the back hatband. On the left side of the hatband is a size 7 5/8 tag.
