The offered trio of game-worn Washington Senators caps spans nearly 30 years and two separate D.C. franchises. The wool accessories include: 1952-1960 blue with red "W" embroidered to the front. "Tim McAuliffe" size "7-1/8" with excessive wear and "Farmer" inscribed on bill's underside. The latter identifier suggests that the cap was worn by pitching prospect Alfred Farmer during an early-1950s spring training session; 1963-1968 reincarnated following the original franchise's departure to the twin Cities, the 1960s Senators wore caps such as this blue version with the script-style "W" embroidered to the front and red piping lining the outer seams of the crown. "Wilson" tag sewn to the interior sweat band, cap shows heavy wear; 1969-1970 red with white "W" embroidered to the front. "Wilson" size "7-1/8." Medium wear. These Junior Circuit heirlooms hail from the collection of renowned Baltimore/Washington collector Steve Terman.
