Description

    1963 Stan Musial Awards & Proclamations Given During His Final Major League Season Lot of 7. It is common practice for sports fans to pay tribute to a select few athletes when they know it will be the last time the player will be performing in front of them. While most legends play until their jersey is virtually ripped from their being, some players know when it is time to call it a career. In July of 1963, Musial let the higher ups know of his decision to retire. Each of these proclamations was issued in 1963, Musial's final big league year. Most measure in the 16x20" range and are framed. Included are: Saint Louis University Stan Musial Field, Musial being commissioned as a Flying Colonel by Delta Airlines, Chamber of Commerce of Greater Pittsburgh Certificate of Recognition, Musial honored in The Old Grand-Dad Club (he became a grandpa in '63), St. Louis City Council gratitude resolution, State of Arkansas Traveler and resolution from the Fourth Annual Baseball Gang Dinner of the San Francisco Press and Union League Club.
    Letter of provenance from the Musial family.
