Sportscaster Bob Costas once said, “Stan Musial was nicknamed ‘The Man’ not just for all of his career accomplishments. He was nicknamed ‘The Man’ not just for his seventeen major league records, his 29 National League records or his nine All Star records at retirement. He was nicknamed ‘The Man’ as much because of who he is and always will be, one of the most consistent, decent and honest human beings to ever play major league baseball. All Musial represents is more than two decades of sustained excellence and complete decency as a human being." Few players in the history of the game so engendered the admiration and affection of fans, not only at home but in every ballpark on the circuit. As for his 22-year tenure with the Redbirds, there's no specific era during which he peaked. Rather, he was spectacular throughout his Hall of Fame career.

This is an exquisite autographed Hillerich & Bradsby "M159" block-letter ("MUSIAL MODEL") weapon brandished by the seven-time batting champion during the early to mid 1950’s. The 34 1/2", 29.8 oz. uncracked Sportsman's Park heirloom exhibits heavy use, with ball marks visible on the right and back barrel. Cleat marks can be seen on the lower handle. Musial's black marker signature appears prominently between the barrel stampings with his added notation “HOF ’69.” This superb gamer embodies the excellence of “The Man” himself, and will serve as a cornerstone in any elite collection of legendary lumber.

Includes a LOA from John Taube of PSA/DNA (Grade GU9).
