Here is a grouping of Hall of Famer Lou Brock items. The Cardinals cap was used by Brock during the Bicentennial year of 1976. These caps represented the old style of cap, known as a pillbox cap. This style of cap was only used during 1976. Only five other teams used this style of cap that year. There is a photo of Brock wearing this cap, which is autographed, and has his number 20 on the underside of the brim.
The bat is a Louisville Slugger, and was used during his last season which was in 1979. The bat is also autographed.
The baseball is an actual home run ball that I caught at Wrigley Field on 6/28/68. I got the ball in the right field bleachers, after it landed and was rolling around under the bleacher benches. Back then there were not as many people at Wrigley as there are now. The home run was hit in the 1st inning off Fergie Jenkins. It was Brock's 5th home run of the season, and his 89th career home run. The Cardinals won the game 9 to 5. Catching this ball got my baseball collection started. I got Brock to sign the ball at a game several years later.
