“Hey Hey!” You’ll hear the jubilant WGN cries of Jack Brickhouse as you behold these (2) 1970s Chicago Cubs game-worn items. Includes: 1977 Jacket a blue satin-like button-down garment with proper “Wilson” tagging and a 6-1/2”-diameter “Cubs” logo embroidered to the left breast; 1970s Cap a blue wool accessory with the team’s “C” logo embroidered to the front center (in red-on-white) and proper “McAuliffe” tagging. The bill’s underside is autographed by Hall of Famers Banks and Jenkins. More on our website.

Chicago Cubs 1977 Game-Worn Jacket there are two front pockets; blue stretch ribbed knit lining the collar, waistline and sleeve endings; and a red quilted lining. Within the collar, a blue hanger is accompanied by a “Wilson” label and a sizable blank white patch with multiple handwritten notations. A visible “4” and an additional handwritten notation (since obscured by black marker) suggest that the jacket was worn by former catcher Randy Hundley during the 1977 season. The jacket shows solid wear with scuff marks about the metallic buttons.

Chicago Cubs 1970s Game-Worn Cap a red button is sewn atop the six-point crown suspension, while the interior sweatband is home to a “Tim McAuliffe” label and a handwritten notation of “7-3/8” On the bill’s underside, Ernie Banks has signed in blue marker (“7” strength) and Fergie Jenkins has signed in black marker (“7” strength). The cap shows heavy wear with perspiration-induced soiling about the sweatband and two cracks on the bill.
