Up For Grabs Cardinalpalooza: Stan Musial


Previously on the Cardinalpalooza: Rick AnkielDavid Freese | Keith Hernandez | Steve Carlton | Lance Berkman | Lou Brock | Dennis Eckersley | Bob Gibson

What can you say about Stan Musial? He was The Man. Literally. Figuratively. Absolutely. Albert Pujols was never comfortable with the Musial-inspired nickname, "El Hombre", because he didn't want to be compared to someone as great as Stan.

I have a few extra (modern) cards of his, and the list follows at the end of this post.


This is actually a smaller than standard sized Walmart exclusive insert from the 2009 Topps set. Blue Back, like the 1951 Topps game set.


In another couple of decades, they'll be putting Lou Gehrig on a 2010 Topps knockoff. Gross.

Hey, just found your blog and have been checking out your Up For Grabs posts.. some great stuff! And I'm inferring that you're in Portland? I'm in SE (near Main and 16th), so perhaps one day we could meet up for a trade and save on postage? But yeah, I love a lot of Cardinal legends like Musial, Brock, Carlton, Gibson, Ozzie, etc. Not sure if I have a ton appealing to offer in exchange, other than some random Cardinals. But yeah, just thought I'd say hi.
