    St. Louis Browns and Cardinals Greats Signed Index Cards Lot of 37. Prior to the 1953 season Beer magnate August A. Busch Jr. purchased the Cardinals. It was at this moment the Browns fate became sealed. The Cardinals have longed owned the city, and unlike the Browns had a glorious history of pennants and World Championships. Bill Veeck seeing that the Busch family now owned the Cardinals began to make arrangements to once again move the Browns. The 1st move was selling the ballpark to the Cardinals, and the 2nd was to sign a lease with the city of Baltimore. This time AL Owners could not use the excuse of excessive travel to reject the move. Instead owners flat out demanded the only way the move be allowed is for Veeck to sell his interest in the team. Veeck relented and the team was sold. Offered is a wonderful assortment of signed index cards with photos of the respective players including, Stan Musial, Terry Moore, Wally Moon, Johnny Mize, Marty Marion(no photo), Jesse Haines, Vic Wertz, Vern Stephens, Luke Sewell, Jerry Priddy, Dale Long, Paul Dean, John Berandino, Clint Courtney, etc. LOA from PSA/DNA.
