    Description

    1945-46 US Navy Baseball Team Signed Baseball from The Stan Musial Collection. Part baseball memorabilia, part militaria, the presented sphere was toted back to civilian life by The Man after his brave term of service to the World War II effort was complete. Most of the names of his Navy teammates will not be familiar, but Musial himself isn't the only Big Leaguer among the twenty-six autographs sealed beneath a vintage coating of shellac on the provided "Official 97 League" horsehide. Other recognizable names include Hall of Famer Billy Herman, Hugh Casey (who would commit suicide in 1951), Herman Franks, Charlie Gilbert, Johnny McCarthy and more. Signatures average 8.5/10. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
    Letter of provenance from the Musial family.
