Description:
1954 Stan Musial Twentieth Home Run in Fifty Games Baseball. He'd terrified opposing managers for well over a decade when this remarkable power surge battered National League pitching, but never before had there been a better case for the intentional walk when the provided ONL (Giles) ball was served up by Brooklyn Dodgers ace Carl Erskine to Musial's thunderous Louisville Slugger. The neatly notated side panel tells the story: "Stan Musial's souvenir ball, his 20th H.R. ball in 50 games in 1954 off: Erskine, Tues: June 8th, '54." Further writing adorns two other panels with details of the ten to three victory at Busch Stadium. An exciting relic from a span that equaled Babe Ruth's torrid 1927 pace.
Letter of provenance from the Musial family.
