    1955 Stan Musial Game Worn St. Louis Cardinals Jersey. "My feet are killing me," American League catcher Yogi Berra complained to Musial as he stepped into the batter's box in the bottom of the twelfth inning of the 1955 All-Star Game. The Cardinals slugger smiled and gave him a wink. "Relax," he ensured Berra, "I'll have you home in a minute." He then turned to face Red Sox pitcher Frank Sullivan, blasting his first offering deep beyond the right field wall to keep his promise. The dramatic walk-off shot stands to this day as one of the most commonly retold anecdotes in the Hall of Fame career of Stan "The Man" Musial, who sported this road grey gamer during that memorable 1955 campaign.

    The marvelously preserved road grey gamer exhibits solid wear from meetings with the World Champion Brooklyn Dodgers at Ebbets to visits with a rookie Clemente at Forbes Field, the classic chenille birds and bat logo transversing a fully functional zipper front. Red piping rings the cuffs and zipper path, giving way to Musial's retired number "6" in red and navy felt on verso. An artfully chain stitched "Stan Musial" is sewn directly into the jersey body at lower left front tail, beneath a "Rawlings Hall of Fame Flannel [size] 44" label. Not a single distraction--not a stain or a moth hole--is to be found. Musial notates the garment as "1955 Game Jersey" beneath his 9+/10 black sharpie signature on lower left chest. A picture-perfect representation in every regard, for the uncompromising collector. LOA from Heritage Auctions. Full LOA from PSA/DNA (autograph). Full LOA from James Spence Authentication (autograph). COA from Stan Musial (autograph).
