This is a game used Dave Kingman Cubs home jersey, used in 1979 when Kingman won the NL Home Run title with 48 Home Runs. The cap was given to me by Kingman after the last game of the 1979 season at Wrigley Field. Earlier in the season I caught a grand slam hit by Kingman while the Cubs were playing the Montreal Expos.

After the game I asked Dave if he would like the ball back and he said yes. The next day I met him while the Cubs were taking batting practice. In return he gave me one of his bats, and a Cubs autographed baseball. I asked if I could have his cap at the end of the season and he said "we'll see". I reminded him several times throughout the season, and after the last out of the Cubs final game, Dave gave me the cap as the Cubs were walking to their clubhouse door down the left field line.
