The young outfielder known as Willie Stargell overcame bigotry and ascended rapidly through the minors, and received the call to join the Pirates in September 1962. He was a little over his head as a rookie in 1963, but he asserted himself the following season, raising his average 30 points, blasting 21 home runs, and appearing as a pinch-hitter in the All-Star Game. The 1965 campaign was even better as he became a much more selective hitter and drove in 100 runs for the first time. Then came one of the best years of Stargell’s career in 1966, when he batted.315 with 33 home runs and finished third in the National League in OPS.
Simple, yet elegant and measuring in our horizontal style at 3.5" by 4.5", we’ve taken a Willie Stargell Rawlings Fastback GTF1 model baseball glove and handcrafted this gorgeous bi-fold wallet. Willie’s signature is clear as day on the front and the two lines of red baseball stitching really make this wallet stand out. We’ve taken even more vintage baseball glove leather to form the side load card pockets on the inside. A full length cash slot rounds out the functionality on the inside. For any Pirates fan or just baseball fans in general, this wallet is a must! Enjoy!
