Size 6 and 7/8. Stan signed this for me on 2-3-09 at Stan The Man Inc. in his office. He was a pleasure to meet. When I had this hat signed by Stan in his office, I asked him did he keep any of his game used memorabilia because he did not have any in his office. He stated that he does not own any of his own memorabilia and that what he had is now in the St. Louis Cardinals Museum at the Stadium. http://www.stlouismemorabilia.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=34105921 34105921 1959 Game Used Stan Musial Hat From Bill Jackowskis (Umpire) Collection and Signed By Stan.

The Seller I received this from stated the following:Stan Musial was a late season call-up for the St. Louis Cardinals at the end of 1941 and this sheet of autographs from 1941 includes "Stan the Man" During one of the games he was involved in during late 1941! The autographs on the sheet are all St. Louis Cardinals and Browns players and include a couple late 1941 call ups and also a few guys who were out of baseball after 1942 so this is 100% a 1941 signature of Stan the Man. I have NEVER seen another signature of Musial that absolutely dates to his Rookie Year! Dated on the back as being from 1941. Two signatures on the back not shown are Roy Cullenbine and Bob Harris (both 1941 Browns players). Small rip at the top which affects the Frank Creepy Crespi autograph but is nowhere near the Musial! The other autographs from the 1941 team are Erv Dusak, Whitey Kurowski, Harry Gumbert, and from the 1941 St. Louis Browns is Chet Laabs. Stan Musials first game with the Cardinals was on September 19, 1941 at the age of 20. Cullenbine, Harris, and Laabs played for the 1941 St. Louis Browns. Crespi, Dusak, Kurowski, and Gumbert played for the 1941 St. Louis Cardinals.

Additional Information: GAME USED BATTING PRACTICE JERSEY STAN MUSIAL PATCH Angels to wear Musial patch at Pujols' behest By Jenifer Langosch / MLB.com | 6/28/2013 11:50 P.M. ET OAKLAND -- The Angels, at the urging of former Cardinals player Albert Pujols, will be honoring the late Stan Musial by wearing a No. 6 patch on their batting-practice jerseys during a three-game series against St. Louis next week. Musial died in January at the age of 92. The patch will be identical to the one the Cardinals are wearing on their uniforms for the entire 2013 season. The Angels are not able to wear the patch on their game jerseys because players and uniformed staff already have one with the initials of Dr. Lewis Yocum, the organization's longtime orthopedist who died in May after battling cancer. Other clubs have recognized Musial's legacy and life this season with a video tribute and/or moment of silence, but the Angels will be the first to wear a patch in his honor. Pujols, who signed with the Angels after the 2011 season, formed a close friendship with Musial during his 11 seasons with the Cardinals. His respect for Musial was enough for him to ask to stop being referred to as "El Hombre," Spanish for "The Man," which was Musial's nickname. Pujols attended Musial's funeral in St. Louis during the offseason. http://www.stlouismemorabilia.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=182433803 182433803 Stan Musial Game Used Batting Practice Patch Angels Cardinals MLB Authenticated Angels game used batting practice patches worn to commemorate Stan Musial when the Cardinals visited Angels Stadium.

For the final chapter of a glorious 22-year career all with the Cardinals Stan Musial suited up for a September 29th contest against the visiting Reds. It was 1963, and the final standings were pretty much determined. St. Louis would finish the campaign with 93 victories, placing them in 2nd place in the Senior Circuit. For Stan the Man, though, this was the end of the line ? his last Major League game. Here is a full ticket from that September 29 competition, one that would have provided its patron general seating in Busch Stadium?s bleachers. In outstanding condition, this ducat measures 1-3/8 x 5-1/2; with its print perfect, no surface blemishes or creases, and only the slightest of corner wear, it would be welcomed as Near Mint. And so, as a flourish to a career highlighted by 20 All-Star selections, three National League MVP awards and countless hitting crowns, Stan retired upon this games conclusion. He went 2 for 3 (a 14-inning nail-biter, won by St. Louis), and Musial drove in a run - number 1,951 in his career ? which stood as the National League record until topped by Hank Aaron several years later. 50 years ago today: Stan's last game A St. Louis baseball public, tickled by the thought of watching Musial play in one more Fall Classic, abruptly gathered to watch his last. The finale on Sept. 29 was a resplendent Sunday at the asymmetrical ballpark. The sun burned bright, the temperatures warmed into the mid-60s and the sidewalks at Grand and Dodier were flush with early arrivals. The game was a sellout, with reserve seats selling for $2.25. But a ticket-scalping scam kept the final gate under capacity at 27,576. A large portion arrived to watch Musial take his final batting practice, cheering with each ball he drove. As his last turn ended, Musial hit one off the right-field screen, then called out to pitcher Lloyd Merritt, for One more. Merritt obliged, and with his last swing, Musial parked one more on the right-field roof. The Man never disappointed. During pre-game ceremonies, Musial rode around the field in a red convertible and was feted by teammates and dignitaries. He stepped to a bank of microphones, wearing a Cub Scout neckerchief, and thanked the only fans for whom he ever played. This is a day I will always remember,he said. This is a day of great joy and sorrow, the sorrow which always comes when we have to say goodbye. NO GIMMES Both teams had their hard-throwing best on the mound, Bob Gibson for the Cardinals, Jim Maloney for the Cincinnati Reds. Maloney grew up in Fresno, Calif., where he lives today. During his formative years, the Cardinals were the westernmost team in the big leagues. Stan Musial was my idol growing up, said Maloney, 73. I wanted to hit like him, you know, with that stance he had. I think I had a couple of No. 6 jerseys as a kid. So when I got to the big leagues in 1960, it was a real thrill to pitch against Musial every time we played St. Louis. Maloney was at the apex of a blossoming career. He was a 23-year-old imposing combination of power and unpredictability. During that ?63 season, he led the NL in wild pitches (19) and strikeouts per nine innings (9.5). On the final day of the season, he was going for his 24th win. St. Louis (Post-Dispatch) sportswriter Bob Broeg was standing around at the cage while we were hitting before the game,Maloney recalled. And he asked me if I was going to let Musial get a hit off me. I said, Absolutely not, Im going for my 24th win and Im going to do my best to get him out. In the first inning, the ball from Maloneys first-pitch strike to Musial was removed from play and set aside for posterity. His third pitch was a called strike three. Game 3,026 for Musial would be just like Game 1 no gimmes. When Musial batted again in the fourth, Maloney had struck out six and not allowed a hit in his scoreless duel with Gibson. The retiring No. 6 ended the no-hit nonsense, knocking a single to center. Keep in mind, and I?m not patting myself on the back or anything, but in 1963 I was on top of my game,Maloney said. I mean, I was right there with Gibson and Koufax and pitchers like that. And Musial was what, 42 years old HIT NO. 3,630 :D The game remained scoreless when Musial came up again in the sixth. Curt Flood doubled and stood at second with one out. Given the circumstances, everyone knew plate appearance No. 12,717 for Musial would be the last. Again, he received a standing ovation from the crowd. The game was simulcast on local television, so many more watched at home. From bleacher seats to dugouts to living rooms, there was a profound sense of appreciation and trepidation. Hearts were in throats. You would have thought after all the ceremonies he went through in each city, everybody would have been prepared for his last at-bat, said Dal Maxvill, the Cardinals shortstop that day. But I looked around and there were an awful lot of wet eyes in that dugout. Musial went through his routine stepped in, tapped the plate, ran his hand up the barrel, swirled the bat around the clock and nestled into his stance, that unforgettable crouch from which he sprang. Broadcaster Harry Caray, a narrator for so much of Musials magic, described his final act. Heres Musial, listen to the crowd again A base hit would give the Cardinals the lead. Maloney fired and Musial fouled the fastball straight back right on it. Some things never change. Jim threw really hard,said Johnny Edwards, 75, the Reds catcher that day. Im sure if they had the radar guns on him like they do today, he would hit 100 mph once in a while. But even then, Musial was still quick. Hed come out of that crouch and ... Maloney stretched, delivered again and Musial laid off a low curve. Caray took the opportunity to add context. Take a good look, fans, take a good look This might be the last time at bat in the major leagues Remember the stance and the swing ... Youre not likely to see his likes again. The count went to 2-1, a hitters count, a Musial count. He waved the bat once more. Maloney got the sign, rocked and fired. The pitch to Musial a hot shot on the ground into right field, a base hit here?s Flood around third no throw the Cardinals lead 1-0 ... Listen to the crowd! FORM-FITTING Cardinals manager Johnny Keane sent 23-year-old outfielder Gary Kolb across the infield to pinch run for Musial. The crowd jeered as Kolb made his appointed round. Perhaps the true measure of how dearly one is regarded is how difficult it is to say goodbye. But the catcalls quickly turned into a roaring ovation as Musial left the base and headed toward the dugout. Passing Kolb on the way, he called out, They love ya, kid. The run-scoring single was not as dramatic as Ted Williams farewell home run, but it was romantically form-fitting. Musials career was all about consistency and balance. He broke into the majors on Sept. 17, 1942, in the same manner, stroking two hits and leading the Cardinals to a 3-2 win. It would take a Maxvill hit in the 14th inning, but Musial departed by stroking two hits and helping the Cardinals beat the Reds 3-2. Musials last hit was his 1,815th at home, precisely the same number he collected on the road. He retired with a .331 career batting average, which in 1963 would have won a batting title in both the NL and the AL. He held 17 major league records, 29 NL records and nine All-Star Game records when he removed the birds on the bat from his chest that late afternoon. He was baseballs career leader in extra base hits (1,377) and total bases (6,134). He led the NL in hits (3,630), doubles (725), RBIs (1,951) and games played. He never led the league in home runs, but he finished with 475 of them. http://www.stlouismemorabilia.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=185850809 185850809 STAN MUSIAL'S OWN Desk Paperweight Name Plate From "Stan Musial Collection" Heritage Sports Collections Auction NOV 7-9, 2013 Auction # 7085 - From Lot # 82935 Stan Musial's Personally Owned Straight From Stan's Desk: Large Rectangular Wood Paperweight / Name Plate With "Stanley F.

It was 1963, and the final standings were pretty much determined. St. Louis would finish the campaign with 93 victories, placing them in 2nd place in the Senior Circuit. For Stan the Man, though, this was the end of the line his last Major League game. Here is a ticket stub from that September 29 competition, one that would have provided its patron general seating in Busch Stadium reserved Seats. And so, as a flourish to a career highlighted by 20 All-Star selections, three National League MVP awards and countless hitting crowns, Stan retired upon this games conclusion. He went 2 for 3 (a 14-inning nail-biter, won by St. Louis), and Musial drove in a run - number 1,951 in his career which stood as the National League record until topped by Hank Aaron several years later. 50 years ago today: Stan's last game A St. Louis baseball public, tickled by the thought of watching Musial play in one more Fall Classic, abruptly gathered to watch his last. The finale on Sept. 29 was a resplendent Sunday at the asymmetrical ballpark. The sun burned bright, the temperatures warmed into the mid-60s and the sidewalks at Grand and Dodier were flush with early arrivals. The game was a sellout, with reserve seats selling for $2.25. But a ticket-scalping scam kept the final gate under capacity at 27,576. A large portion arrived to watch Musial take his final batting practice, cheering with each ball he drove. As his last turn ended, Musial hit one off the right-field screen, then called out to pitcher Lloyd Merritt, for One more. Merritt obliged, and with his last swing, Musial parked one more on the right-field roof. The Man never disappointed. During pre-game ceremonies, Musial rode around the field in a red convertible and was feted by teammates and dignitaries. He stepped to a bank of microphones, wearing a Cub Scout neckerchief, and thanked the only fans for whom he ever played. This is a day I will always remember,he said. This is a day of great joy and sorrow, the sorrow which always comes when we have to say goodbye. NO GIMMES Both teams had their hard-throwing best on the mound, Bob Gibson for the Cardinals, Jim Maloney for the Cincinnati Reds. Maloney grew up in Fresno, Calif., where he lives today. During his formative years, the Cardinals were the westernmost team in the big leagues. Stan Musial was my idol growing up, said Maloney, 73. I wanted to hit like him, you know, with that stance he had. I think I had a couple of No. 6 jerseys as a kid. So when I got to the big leagues in 1960, it was a real thrill to pitch against Musial every time we played St. Louis. Maloney was at the apex of a blossoming career. He was a 23-year-old imposing combination of power and unpredictability. During that ?63 season, he led the NL in wild pitches (19) and strikeouts per nine innings (9.5). On the final day of the season, he was going for his 24th win. St. Louis (Post-Dispatch) sportswriter Bob Broeg was standing around at the cage while we were hitting before the game,Maloney recalled. And he asked me if I was going to let Musial get a hit off me. I said, Absolutely not, Im going for my 24th win and Im going to do my best to get him out. In the first inning, the ball from Maloneys first-pitch strike to Musial was removed from play and set aside for posterity. His third pitch was a called strike three. Game 3,026 for Musial would be just like Game 1 no gimmes. When Musial batted again in the fourth, Maloney had struck out six and not allowed a hit in his scoreless duel with Gibson. The retiring No. 6 ended the no-hit nonsense, knocking a single to center. Keep in mind, and I?m not patting myself on the back or anything, but in 1963 I was on top of my game,Maloney said. I mean, I was right there with Gibson and Koufax and pitchers like that. And Musial was what, 42 years old HIT NO. 3,630 :D The game remained scoreless when Musial came up again in the sixth. Curt Flood doubled and stood at second with one out. Given the circumstances, everyone knew plate appearance No. 12,717 for Musial would be the last. Again, he received a standing ovation from the crowd. The game was simulcast on local television, so many more watched at home. From bleacher seats to dugouts to living rooms, there was a profound sense of appreciation and trepidation. Hearts were in throats. You would have thought after all the ceremonies he went through in each city, everybody would have been prepared for his last at-bat, said Dal Maxvill, the Cardinals shortstop that day. But I looked around and there were an awful lot of wet eyes in that dugout. Musial went through his routine stepped in, tapped the plate, ran his hand up the barrel, swirled the bat around the clock and nestled into his stance, that unforgettable crouch from which he sprang. Broadcaster Harry Caray, a narrator for so much of Musials magic, described his final act. Heres Musial, listen to the crowd again A base hit would give the Cardinals the lead. Maloney fired and Musial fouled the fastball straight back right on it. Some things never change. Jim threw really hard,said Johnny Edwards, 75, the Reds catcher that day. Im sure if they had the radar guns on him like they do today, he would hit 100 mph once in a while. But even then, Musial was still quick. Hed come out of that crouch and ... Maloney stretched, delivered again and Musial laid off a low curve. Caray took the opportunity to add context. Take a good look, fans, take a good look This might be the last time at bat in the major leagues Remember the stance and the swing ... Youre not likely to see his likes again. The count went to 2-1, a hitters count, a Musial count. He waved the bat once more. Maloney got the sign, rocked and fired. The pitch to Musial a hot shot on the ground into right field, a base hit here?s Flood around third no throw the Cardinals lead 1-0 ... Listen to the crowd! FORM-FITTING Cardinals manager Johnny Keane sent 23-year-old outfielder Gary Kolb across the infield to pinch run for Musial. The crowd jeered as Kolb made his appointed round. Perhaps the true measure of how dearly one is regarded is how difficult it is to say goodbye. But the catcalls quickly turned into a roaring ovation as Musial left the base and headed toward the dugout. Passing Kolb on the way, he called out, They love ya, kid. The run-scoring single was not as dramatic as Ted Williams farewell home run, but it was romantically form-fitting. Musials career was all about consistency and balance. He broke into the majors on Sept. 17, 1942, in the same manner, stroking two hits and leading the Cardinals to a 3-2 win. It would take a Maxvill hit in the 14th inning, but Musial departed by stroking two hits and helping the Cardinals beat the Reds 3-2. Musials last hit was his 1,815th at home, precisely the same number he collected on the road. He retired with a .331 career batting average, which in 1963 would have won a batting title in both the NL and the AL. He held 17 major league records, 29 NL records and nine All-Star Game records when he removed the birds on the bat from his chest that late afternoon. He was baseballs career leader in extra base hits (1,377) and total bases (6,134). He led the NL in hits (3,630), doubles (725), RBIs (1,951) and games played. He never led the league in home runs, but he finished with 475 of them. http://www.stlouismemorabilia.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=188320000 188320000 STAN MUSIAL HIT #3516 to move ahead of TRIS SPEAKER 9/2/62 Ticket Stub A authentic ticket from the game Stan Musial hit number 3516 to move ahead of Tris Speaker in hits to 2nd place all time. http://www.stlouismemorabilia.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=188456655 188456655 Stan Musial Signature Series Porcelain Autographed Card 1996 Collection 89/476 Stan Musial Signature Series Porcelain Autographed Card Collection 89/476 Set of 4 porcelain Stan Musial Signature Series Picture Cards Two of the four cards have been hand-signed by Musial, serially numbered 89/476.

Now batting, number 19, Stanley Musial February 13th, 2013 ? Category: Cardinals History, Stan Musial ? Tagged as Cardinals history, St. Louis Cardinals, Stan Musial Starting over three years ago, what began as a simple question about a curious photo turned into an extensive search. My self-initiated challenge became to try to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt the circumstances surrounding a photo of a very young Stan Musial. In it, ?The Man,? then still a very young man, wore a jersey that was clearly not his trademark St. Louis Cardinals number 6. His cap was of the bird design used in 1941, rather than the 1942 StL logo cap. The photo?s sheer existence, which led to the discovery of several others in which Musial was also wearing the number 19, created conflict. A significant number of well-respected sources, including Musial himself via his biography, stated the future Hall of Famer only wore the number 6 during his 22 years with St. Louis. Then how did this photo come to be? My tasks were related but distinct ? to determine both when and where the photo was taken. The recent passing of the greatest St. Louis Cardinals player of all time reinforced my fear that a conclusive answer to the number 19 mystery might never be found. Yet, it also provided me encouragement to give my quest one more try. I am pleased to report that I now have definitive proof that Musial wore number 19 during his first spring training camp as a major leaguer, in 1942. Stan had made his St. Louis debut the previous September as number 6. This roster is from a ten-cent scorecard from Waterfront Park in St. Petersburg, Florida. In the second game of spring training 1942, March 7, Stanley Musial, number 19, batted third and played left field against the New York Yankees. According to the hand-scoring penciled in it, Musial played six innings, going 1-for-3, a single to right field, before being replaced by Erv Dusak. New York won, 3-2. My research had led me to the spring 1942 conclusion long before now, but until most recently, I had only a long trail of circumstantial evidence. We now know that Musial sported the number 19 jersey in the spring of 1942, both before and after his wearing of number 6 in the regular season. Here is how it unfolded. The Cardinals had employed at least three players who wore number 6 during the 1941 season. First was a promising young outfielder named Harry Walker, up for a second try at the bigs. Not deemed ready, Walker was returned to the minors. Next was a veteran infielder named Pep Young, briefly assigned number 6 just before Musial came up in September 1941. Young was deactivated by the time Stan arrived on September 17. The following scorecard, sourced with the help of Mark Stang, SABR member and author of ?Baseball by the Numbers? and copy provided by Jeff Scott of birdbats.com, is from Game 2 of a doubleheader at Pittsburgh?s Forbes Field on September 23, 1941. Musial is assigned number 6. A September 27 scorecard shared by Stang indicates the same. Here is a cool side point. Note the hand scoring on the card above that indicates Musial hit his first major league home run in the fifth inning as the Cards won, 9-0. It was number one of 475 over his career. Though it was his only long ball with St. Louis in 1941, Musial earlier launched 29 of them in the minors. Yet, as always seems the case, the process of answering one question opened up another. The spring 1942 roster confirms that Walker was in camp, re-assigned his old number 6. That bumped Musial to wearing the number 19. Why? Here is fact with some theory following. At the time, Walker was a top Cardinals prospect. Then 25 years old, the future manager of the Cardinals (?Harry the Hat? would be player/manager during much of the 1955 season) had already spent short parts of the 1940 and 1941 seasons in the majors. The fact that the rookie Musial, then barely 21 years of age, had to give up a number he had worn in just a dozen big league games is not particularly surprising. After all, Musial was not yet 12 months into his amazing transformation from a sore-armed Class-D pitcher into a regular major league outfielder. Another potential factor is that after taking the National League by storm in September 1941, Musial struggled mightily at the plate in the spring of 1942. While wearing number 19, he batted just .199. Stan later explained the waving palm trees made it more difficult to see the ball. Perhaps a bit of superstition was involved in his return to number 6 as well. Like Musial, Walker made the Cardinals roster to open the 1942 season, but was shifted to future Hall of Famer Johnny Mize?s old number 10, an unassigned uniform during spring training. A popular Cardinal, the Big Cat had been dealt to the New York Giants by general manager Branch Rickey following the 1941 season. Why these shifts occurred, we may never know. Whatever the reason, Musial was given back number 6 to start the 1942 regular campaign, and the rest is history. To be clear, however, in support of most references, including Musial?s own biography, he apparently did not ever wear any number other than 6 in his 22 years of regular season play. The conclusion Though it may now seem a straightforward path to the explanation of the number 19 photo, the road taken had many twists and turns. My research loop was finally closed through a combination of persistence and good fortune. Though I had tested the route before, I decided shortly after Musial?s passing to try to again seek assistance through the SABR news list. 2013 provided a new lead. A responder, Jim Wohlenhaus, knew a non-SABR member named Joe Stillwell whose father he characterized as a ?big time 1942 Cardinals fan.? It turned out that Jim was absolutely right. Unfortunately, Paul Stillwell initially replied that while he had a number of 1942 scorecards, he had none from spring training. Only later on, after Paul checked his trove of materials, did he locate my Holy Grail ? the pictured 1942 spring training roster with Musial?s number 19 documented. Stillwell holds the original, which I had previously been conditioned to expect to never find ? due to the rarity of spring training materials, the war-time paper drives and the 70-plus years that have transpired. The setting This project began innocently enough in January 2010, as I received a note that Mike Oasheim sent to Stang, who shared it with the SABR list. Oasheim enclosed a photo from the Baseball Magazine supplement of young Musial, taken by well-known photographer William C. Greene of The New York World-Telegram and copyrighted in 1942. (Along with being a uniform numbers expert, Stang owns hundreds of vintage wire service photos, taken by a variety of photographers.) Enlisting the help of readers on my blog, initial efforts were primarily focused on trying to identify the ballpark in the photo to help establish its date. At that point, we were unsure of whether it was a major or minor league setting. That led to searches for photos of the ballparks in which Musial played in 1941, including major league parks where he appeared after being called up to St. Louis. Hand-me down uniforms were often worn by minor league clubs in the era, so we had no guarantee that Stan was with St. Louis at the time of the photo. Then again, why would Greene shoot Musial as a minor leaguer and where would it have been? For some time, we were thrown off by accounts that Greene had only photographed subjects in New York. Stang noted that Musial?s Rochester Red Wings played in Newark, New Jersey in the 1941 International League playoffs. A series of investigations in that direction proved to be inconclusive. Additional efforts were spent in analysis of Musial?s cap and uniform. The photo seemed to indicate he is wearing a 1941 cap and a jersey that had yet to be affixed with the war-time patch all major leaguers donned starting in the 1942 regular season. That led to an evaluation of which year the photo may have been taken. 1941 was ruled out. Through an extensive search of various online records of photo and newspaper archives, we determined the setting of the number 19 photo was St. Petersburg?s Waterfront Park, later known as Al Lang Stadium. During this period, the Cardinals and Yankees shared the facility for spring training games, creating a plausible scenario as to why the New York photographer Greene would have taken the Musial photo. In spring of 1941, Musial had been a struggling minor league pitcher still in the midst of moving to the outfield full time. He would neither have been in major league camp nor posing for photographers as a hitter. Through several biographies, we identified in which minor league camps Musial had been assigned in 1941, concluding he would have been hundreds of miles away from St. Pete. A further search of newspaper records led to a very similar version of the photo in question which ran in the St. Petersburg Independent on April 6, 1942, establishing one time boundary. The accompanying article included the following assessment of the left-fielder?s first major league spring camp: ?Musial, on the other hand, hasn?t been able to maintain a .200 average. He has collected only 16 hits in 81 trips to the plate. But he has shown flashes of power, belting two home runs, a triple and three doubles.? Conflicting accounts While we located another documented use of and reference to the number 19 photo, it suggested the timeframe may have been in 1941. Based on conclusions already drawn, this was troubling news and as such, needed to be investigated thoroughly. A well-done reference document, ?St. Louis Cardinals Encyclopedia,? written by Bob Broeg and Jerry Vickery, was the source. It includes the recollection of long-time Cardinals equipment manager Butch Yatkeman accompanying the number 19 photo, though it was not a direct quote. The following is from page 258. Note the caption at the upper left. By all other accounts, the first statement accompanying the photo seems to be in error. Reference the September 23, 1941 scorecard above. It indicates the aforementioned outfielder Dusak, one of a group of players who came up with Musial on September 17, had been assigned number 19, not Musial. As I approached surviving co-author Vickery with my findings, he was very supportive and interested in the 1941 scorecard. He helped with the cap and jersey identification, including another Greene photo in which Musial is wearing the same 1941 cap, next to manager Billy Southworth, who was sporting a 1942 cap. Vickery also offered to try to find a record of the Cardinals spring training roster from the spring of 1942. He knew a nephew of the now-deceased Yatkeman who had boxes of the equipment manager?s old records in his possession at one time. Unfortunately, that very promising lead dried up when it became a needle-in-a-haystack proposal to search through 40 cartons of materials for what may have been a single sheet of paper. From Vickery, and confirmed by the Hall of Fame, I learned the version of the photo used in the Encyclopedia is part of the Hall?s collection. Most importantly, its reverse is stamped with the date March 1, 1942. For reference, Musial reported to camp in Florida on February 27 and the Cardinals played their first game on March 6. I received considerable assistance from Tim Wiles and John Horne of the A. Bartlett Giamatti Research Center at the National Baseball Library in Cooperstown, who searched their files in vain for any other Musial number 19 documentation. However, they consulted on the uniform questions and provided a number of other photos of young Stan that helped to positively identify Waterfront Park. The direct approach My spring training 1942 theory seemed to check out in almost every manner ? short of firm confirmation. My ideal would be to ask Musial myself, but getting to him was not going to be easy. With Stan approaching 90 years of age in 2010 and in declining health, he was no longer around the club with any regularity. I first reached out through his business entity, StanTheMan Inc. His secretary of half a century, Pat Anthony, reviewed my materials. Both she and Musial?s business manager, Dick Zitzmann, cited one prominent piece of documentation which conflicted with my theory ? Broeg and Vickrey?s Encyclopedia. Despite my providing them a copy of the 1941 scorecard pictured above, they remained firm in support of the Encyclopedia reference that Musial did not wear number 6 until 1942. Zitzmann initially said the number 19 photo was from 1941 while Anthony did agree that it was from the spring of 1942. Given the inconsistencies, I could not settle for this being definitive. I asked Zitzmann if he would please query Stan directly on my behalf, but that went unanswered. I did receive a standard-issue Musial autographed photo index card from Anthony, which was the undoubtedly best sendoff I have ever received. Next, I took the number 19 photo directly to Musial?s long-time teammate and friend, Red Schoendienst, who agreed to ask Stan about it. Interestingly, Red was the last to wear number 6 other than Musial as he was assigned the digit in 1945 while Stan was in the service. However, this line did not go anywhere, either. If Red ever spoke to Musial on my behalf, he did not acknowledge it. I eventually stopped asking. Still close but not 100 percent sure, I had run out of leads, letting this sit for over a year. In early 2012, the story was returned to the top of my priorities by a tweet about an old Musial photo from his grandson Brian Schwarze, vice president of StanTheMan Inc. When I approached Schwarze with the number 19 photo, he was initially surprised by it, not having seen it before. Soon, he joined the search and unearthed another shot of Stan in the same uniform. This camera angle was toward the outfield instead of the stands and came from Acme Newspictures, Inc. It was dated 1942 without month or day, and certified by a firm called PSA/DNA Authentication Services. At my request, in early 2012, Schwarze was kind enough to discuss the photo directly with his grandfather. Unfortunately, Musial, then 91 years of age, ?doesn?t remember wearing anything but number 6,? his grandson related. Disappointed, I feared I would never fully solve the mystery. That pleasantly changed here in 2013. Paul Stillwell?s 1942 spring training roster pushed the search across the goal line once and for all.

Zitzman was Musial's longtime business manager and friend. As the number of items dwindle, Zitzman is moving out of the office space but continues to run the company. Photo by Huy Mach, hmach@post-dispatch.com. ST. LOUIS Cardinals Hall of Famer Stan Musial's Stan the Man Inc. is closing up shop in St. Louis this week. The building where Musial signed memorabilia until a month before he died is closing its doors due to a decreasing inventory. Dick Zitzmann, vice president of the company, told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/1xqcxtV ) that Musial still meant a lot to St. Louis, and that the current cache of signed items would last four to six months. There were 6,000 to 7,000 balls in the inventory when Musial died in January 2013 at the age of 92. Today there are none left. There are also no bats, jerseys or caps. "I was completely out," Zitzmann said. "Jerseys sold out the week after he died. That was at $600 piece. And one customer in town bought all my bats. That was about 550 bats." Musial was a creature of habit. He would show up at Stan the Man every single morning and autograph pictures, balls and jerseys from 10:30 to 11:30. "He never missed, unless he was ill," Zitzmann said. Afterward, he would head off to lunch at one of the several restaurants in his rotation. The baseball player's hour of signing was not always low key. Fans were allowed to enter the office during the signing sessions, "but he was so affable he wouldn't turn anybody down. Stan loved it; he really did. He would take pictures with people. He was almost too good. At times it made me wonder, 'How does this guy do this?'" Zitzmann and Musial formed Stan the Man, Inc. in the late 1980s when the autograph industry started to become popular. The business became very lucrative for both of them. With each passing year, Musial was able to profit more through signed memorabilia than he did as a player. http://www.stlouismemorabilia.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=197385240 197385240 Stan The Man, Inc., Closing Its Office Space Stan Musial's longtime business manager, Dick Zitzman (left), and Musial's grandson, Brian Musial Schwarze, work together at the Stan The Man Inc. office in Town and Country on Wednesday, Feb. 4, 2015.
