Although the Dodgers are a franchise with many accomplished managers, there may be none as prominent in their history as Walter Alston, with 2,040 wins from 1954 to 1976. Alston is the subject of this circa 1970s signed & game-worn cap. The New Era size 7-3/8 cap displays signs of moderate to heavy wear including slight damage to the bill that has caused a vertical fold and moderate creasing on the inside bill. That area is where Alston has lent his ("7-8") penning underneath the salutations To Andy and Best Wishes in blue pen. Auction LOA from JSA.
