This cap of Johnny Bench, worn years before the Hall of Famer played his part in the powerful mid-seventies Big Red Machine line-up, time travels from 1968 when the great catcher was N.L. Rookie of the Year, Gold Glove winner, and All-Star participant. Game-worn during that season, cap is made by Wilson, with tag inside band. Size 7 5/8 (Bench was notorious for having a large head) is stamped on back inside of band, and Bench’s # "5" in vintage black marker hides under the brim. Fine use inside and out, with a few small rips. As good of a Bench cap that exists.
