Description

    1941 Stan Musial Class AA Baseball Contract. Exciting artifact is The Man's final minor league contract before making his Big League debut with the St. Louis Cardinals in the final weeks of the 1941 season. The terms dictate a salary of $150/month for his service to the Columbus Red Birds, the Cardinals' farm club for whom Musial had played since the tender age of seventeen, though it specifies a bump to $200/month should he stay with the team after June first. Oddly, the six-page document is not signed by Musial himself, but rather by his mother "Mrs. Mary Musial" (twice), leaving us to wonder why the twenty-year old Stan would need parental permission. While this would have made sense for Stan's initial contract in 1938, it seems unusual for a 1941 model. Regardless, the impressive stature as Musial's final contract before the Bigs is impossible to deny. The contract remains in splendid NRMT condition, and is accompanied by its original mailing envelope, to "Mr. Stanley Musial, 1137 Marelda Ave., Donora, Penn," which was signed years later by Musial himself in 10/10 blue sharpie. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication. Guide Value or Estimate: $1,500 - $2,500.
