These were rebuilding years for McGwire after a significant drought in offensive production, plus foot injuries and a divorce. But he was back at the top of his game when Oakland traded him to St. Louis on July 31, 1997, compiling a then-career high 58 HRs by year's end. Authenticator Phil Wood's LOA summarizes the cap's essential details: "The front panels show some vintage sweat stains, but the cap is otherwise in solid game worn condition. Atop the visor is the signature of Mark McGwire in black marker. On the underside of the visor in black ink is number '25' indicating the player's uniform number. The underside of the visor is gray, a change that took place with Oakland caps in 1994...I'm comfortable in the authenticity of this cap, worn by one of the most prolific, if infamous, sluggers of the 20th century." Auction LOA from JSA (for autograph).
