    Description

    1962 Stan Musial Game Worn Jersey. It was more than the simple attraction to a rhyme that made St. Louis Cardinals fans dub him "The Man." For the better part of his twenty-two seasons with the ballclub, the hard-slugging outfielder found himself near the top of the offensive rankings and a constant fixture on the All-Star circuit. Even at age forty-one, when Musial suited up in this home white flannel at Sportsman's Park, The Man was putting up world class numbers, rating third in the National League with an astounding average of .330 over 135 games of action. This fine offering from Musial's last truly great season in the Majors is presented here in unimprovable, 100% original condition, with only a flawless black sharpie signature on the chest to differentiate it from its active state. Classic chenille birds and bat logo on the chest is joined by the properly retired number "6" in two-tone felt, with "Musial 6" spelled out on verso. An understated "Rawlings [size] 44" label is straight-stitched into the tail, just above an artfully embroidered "Musial 62." The custom shortened sleeves that Musial favored are clearly in effect here, and the wear is solid and consistent throughout, with no unsightly staining or other condition problems to be found. While so many collectors clamor for the rookie model jersey, there is something particularly appealing about the late-career jersey from legends setting their final marks in the game's record books. It was in a home white jersey, for example, on September 2, 1962, that Musial recorded his 3,516th hit to move ahead of Tris Speaker and into second place on the career hits leaderboard. Could this have been the jersey Musial was wearing when he tipped his cap to the congratulating cheers of the hometown crowd? It's entirely possible. LOA from Dave Bushing, Graded A10. LOA from Lou Lampson.
