    Description

    Circa 1950 Stan Musial St. Louis Cardinals Traveling Trunk. Baseball's version of Al Capone's vault? Let's hope it's better than that. But one thing's for sure--this ancient shipping trunk painted with Musial's name weighs far, far too much to be empty. The problem? We simply cannot crack it open. We were able to get the lock to pop, but decades of use and storage has provided its own natural locking mechanism--it's absolutely wedged shut. The mind swims with the possibilities, but this is a lot for the gambling soul, as the contents could be anything from jerseys and bats to old newspapers. At the very least, you have a trunk that traveled the National League with one of the greatest hitters of all time. Dimensions 22x25x42". Third party shipping required.
    Letter of provenance from the Musial family.
