The sheer numbers and the infrequency of the feat automatically tell us just how impressive the 1971 Baltimore Orioles starting pitching staff was. As a team, those ’71 Birds garnered 101 triumphs and a third successive American League pennant, capping off a three-year aggregate total of 318 wins – still an American League record. But even more impressive, the starting quartet of Jim Palmer, Dave McNally, Mike Cuellar and Pat Dobson combined for 70 complete games – that’s right, 70 – while each won 20 games. It is safe to say that never again will there be a staff with four 20-game winners, and it’s also a good bet that you’ll not see a keepsake like this Baltimore Orioles cap autographed by all four of those mound maestros, three of whom have sadly passed away. The New Era size “7-3/4” professional model Baltimore Orioles cap features an embroidered logo that dates to 1989-1997. On the bill, each has signed in silver-colored marker. From left to right, we find: Mike Cuellar (d.2010, “6” strength); Dave McNally (d.2002, “5-6” strength); Jim Palmer (“4-5” strength); and Pat Dobson (d.2006, “5” strength). The unworn keepsake retains its original retail tag and presents beautifully. Accompanying is a full photo LOA from JSA.
