With 1969 expansion came an “international” expansion to Canada, Avant-garde logos and some of the worst baseball you’ve ever seen! From that memorable season in which the fans packed tiny Jarry Park, this Montreal Expos cap is attributed to catcher John Bateman. The wool accessory features red-white-and-blue panels, a blue bill and a blue button atop the six-point crown suspension. On the front (white) panel, a cursive “M-e” logo is embroidered in red-white-and-blue. On the bill’s underside, an underlined handwritten “2” suggests wear by Bateman, whose name is inscribed at the back of the interior leather sweatband. Bateman’s name is flanked by a “KM Pro Cap” label at the left, and a manufacturer’s logo stamping and size “7-1/4” stamping at the right. Additionally, within the sweatband’s rear interior, an inscription reads “John Bateman 1969.” Light to moderate game wear is evident, with minimal perspiration-induced soiling about the interior. Additionally, the brim appears dried out with age, but remains uncracked. Comes with an LOA from Baltimore/Washington, D.C.-area expert Phil Wood.
