Thread: Stan Musial HOF postcards

This topic got me interested in reading more current articles on Stan Musial.
Sadly, they all seem to be talking about or mention his declining health. I certainly give him all of my best wishes.
One of the major things that sets baseball apart from other professional sports is just how much it reveres its past. Stan Musial is a major part of that past and is perhaps the game's strongest link to an era that fades away with each passing year.
I'd suggest to anybody unfamiliar with Stan to really look into him. One of the greatest players and men to ever take the field. The fact that he is willing to respond to fan mail period is amazing but that he is well known to return his signed bio card and occasionally even sign our items is unbelievable. Ten years from now getting a HOFer ttm is going to be near impossible. The way the game has evolved with endorsements and such inductees with a resume less than 1/8th that of Musial will be doing strictly MAB signings for $60+ a pop. Its really sad.

I got mine yesterday. It looks really nice, as well as being different to the posted pictures. It's really great that Stan "The Man" responds to his fan mail. He seems like a genuinely nice person. Really happy with everyone's successes!
