1938 Stan Musial HOF High School Yearbook Donora PA Varsity Dragon
An authentic vintage 1938 high school yearbook from Donora, Pennsylvania with baseball Hall of Famer Stan Musial.This was published in January 1938 and has his Basketball Group photo which would be from the 1937 Team. High school yearbooks are printed early in the year in which they're given out, and they're usually given out in April or May, and baseball team pictures were always from the previous year, that is, the current seniors were pictured as juniors, etc., so there are no baseball team photos. "In 1937, a Donora teacher, Michael "Ki" Duda . . . brought back high school baseball ... Musial signed a pro contract at 16 in the summer of 1937, but was allowed to play high school ball in 1938, because he hadn't played yet in the pros or even received any money. But he played Class D ball in the summer of 1938 and would have been ineligible to return to high school ball in 1939. "This is one of the earliest photos you will find of Stan.
