"Mr. Shortstop" won the inaugural Gold Glove at his position when Rawlings debuted the award in 1957—his first of three straight. Had the GG existed in '55, McMillan likely would have won it then too for his .969 fielding percentage, 495 assists and 111 double plays. Incredibly, on a Reds team known for its "wrecking crew" offense, it was McMillan the defensive whiz who garnered a Sports Illustrated cover appearance on September 9, 1957. Offered is the only McMillan Redlegs gamer that we're aware of. It's a MacGregor size-40 example with a "SET I 1955" tag inside the right front tail. Chain-stitched inside the collar is "McMillen," which has a small flap of fabric near its last few letters from a period repair above the first numeral "1" on the reverse. Light wear otherwise with some subtle, scattered tiny holes. As a point of reference on value, McMillan's 1966 Mets uniform sold at auction in 2010 for over $4,000.
