1948 Stan Musial Game Worn St. Louis Cardinals Jersey--National League MVP Season!...
Presented is one of the most important and desirable post-war jerseys available in the collecting hobby, a creamy home white flannel that thrilled Sportsman's Park throughout this season for the ages. The classic birds and bat logo in its distinctive chenille format adorns the chest, traversing a full-functional zipper and the wide red piping that runs the perimeter of its path and extends to the shoulders and sleeve cuffs. The fabled number "6" remains affixed to verso in red and navy felt, a digit retired from service along with The Man himself on September 29, 1963. Interior collar holds "Rawlings St. Louis" manufacturer's label (worn at upper edge), above a "Dry Clean Only" tag just below. Lower left front tail announces the delectable vintage with "Musial 48" embroidered directly into the jersey body.
Some scattered minor staining, centralized at interior collar and lower ribs, does little to distract the eye and certainly falls well short of diminishing the enormous aesthetic and historical appeal. A Cooperstown-quality relic if there ever was one, this is the definitive game used artifact of Stan the Man. LOA from MEARS, A8.5. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
