    1962 Stan Musial 1,860th RBI Baseball, Ties Mel Ott. He was recently knocked from the top five on the all-time Major League leaderboard for runs batted in by fellows named Barry Bonds and Alex Rodriguez, so many among us will still count Stan the Man on the single hand of baseball's most prolific run producers. Here we find the ball that drew him even with a slugging legend, as the extensive notations on the provided ONL (Giles) sphere indicates. "Tied record of Mel Ott with a two base hit scoring Javier in the fifth inning. Pitcher Stan Williams was the victim. Musial's 2 for 3 gave him the League batting lead with a .351 average." The ball exhibits solid use from the July 24, 1962 meeting with the Los Angeles Dodgers at Busch Stadium. Included is a vintage photo of Musial recording the hit, 10x12".
    Letter of provenance from the Musial family.
