"The Glove Collector" newsletter author Joe Phillips provided assistance in the authentication of this rare gear, confirming the professional quality of the "Rawlings TM50" model and the 1955-57 potential range of production, which he further narrows to a likely 1956. A sticker affixed to the glove reads, "Stan Musial 9-25-56," likely applied by the new owner when The Man gifted the well-worn leather four days before the end of the season. Years later the glove was presented to Musial for examination and he confirmed its origin, adding "My glove" to his 8/10 blue sharpie autograph.
Leather is quite stiff after years of storage, with minor chipping on back of pocket, but otherwise the glove presents wonderfully and stands as one of just three Musials to reach the hobby's auction block in recent years. LOA from Joe Phillips.
