On cruise control for Cooperstown, Denny McLain was derailed by his own personal demons and discarded by four teams over a three-year span. In the second stop along a path flecked with trouble, McLain wore and autographed this Washington Senators cap in 1971, the team’s final season in the Nation’s Capital. The red wool accessory features the club’s curly “W” logo embroidered to a patch at the front center, as well as a red button atop the six-point crown suspension. A “Wilson” manufacturer’s label resides on the back of the interior sweatband. On that sweatband’s underside, a size “7-1/4” flap tag is accompanied by a “7-1/4” stampings and a “DXC” stamped identifier. On the underside of the bill, a handwritten notation of “17” is attributed solely to McLain that season. On top of the bill, McLain has signed in black marker (“8” strength). The cap dates specifically to the 1971 season (a year in which McLain led the league with 22 losses). The aforementioned “DCX” catalog code dates to 1971. Additionally, the frugal Senators ordered cheaper caps on which the “W” logo appeared on a patch, rather than being directly embroidered. Outstanding game wear is evident, with minor fabric separation on the upper crown, bill and along the bill’s periphery. Comes with an LOA from renowned Baltimore/Washington, D.C. area expert Phil Wood.
