    1952 Stan Musial 1,000th Run Batted In Baseball with Photograph. An eighth inning long ball at Ebbets Field off Dodgers ace Joe Black on September 12, 1952 enhanced The Man's four-for-five evening and flipped the fourth digit on his RBI odometer in the eight to five loss to the eventual National League Champs. Presented is the very ONL (Giles) ball that Musial was somehow able to retrieve from beyond the outfield wall, and a vintage 12x14" photo in the visitor's dressing room finds Musial posing with the bat and ball in front of the number "1,000!" written in shaving cream on the bathroom mirror. The ball shows strong use from the historic moment, with a vintage "1000" penned on the ball's stamping. No other writing. A major milestone en route to baseball immortality.
    Letter of provenance from the Musial family.
