They called Whitey Ford "The Chairman of the Board" for good reason. He was for more than a decade the star pitcher of a Yankees team that operated with corporate efficiency, and his intelligence and confidence were on display whenever he was on the mound. And, like most successful businessmen, he was at his best when the pressure was greatest. “I don’t care what the situation was, how high the stakes were – the bases could be loaded and the pennant riding on every pitch, it never bothered Whitey,” said Mickey Mantle, who along with Ford and Yogi Berra powered Yankee Dynasty III that produced 14 American League pennants and nine World Series titles from 1949-64. “He pitched his game.” When he retired before the 1968 season, Ford’s final mark was 236-106 – good for an unbelievable .690 winning percentage that is the best among modern pitchers with at least 150 victories.

Presented here is Whitey’s size 7-1/4 Yankees game worn cap manufactured and tagged by Tim McAuliffe. In addition to the McAuliffe tag, the interior band is stamped "KM pro cap." The underside of bill features Ford’s number “16” in thick black marker and has been autographed by Ford (7/10). The cap shows great use, inspiring one to imagine Ford commanding the mound during the height of the Yankees dynasty. The consignor of the Pinstripe Dynasty Collection attests to acquiring this cap through a Yankees team source decades ago. Full LOA from PSA/DNA (AG01384) for auto.
