Description

Dick Bartell, representing the Philadelphia Phillies, was the starting shortstop in the inaugural 1933 All-Star Game. Unlike the American League All-Stars, the 1933 National Leaguers had specially made uniforms and caps to be worn during this festive July affair. Each uniform and cap is unique to the noted player and only worn during the game. Very few relics still exist. Offered is the navy blue Spalding hat worn by Bartell during the 1933 All-Star Game in Chicago. The cap features a fishhook style ”NL” on the front and ”Bartell” chain-stitched in the interior leather headband. Bartell also signed the leather headband, grading (“5”), making this the only known autographed 1933 All-Star cap. This relic is incredibly well preserved, having been stored under ideal condition, and remains in a near pristine state. The Spalding manufacturer's mark is stamped on the interior headband. The cap is accompanied with a letter from Darrell O'Mary, the person who received the uniform and cap from Bartell.
