Description

Stan Musial is consistently rated as one of the game’s greatest pure hitters but rarely listed among the true sluggers. Musial, however, does hold a slugging record that most likely will never be broken. On May 2,1954, Stan “the Man” belted five home runs in a doubleheader against the New York Giants in St. Louis. The Cardinals won the opener, 10–6, on the strength of Musial’s three homeruns. In the nightcap, the Giants won, 9–7, but Musial smashed two more long balls, thus setting the MLB record for homeruns in a doubleheader. Presented is a grouping of collectibles for this event. The lot contains both of the game day scorecards, a ticket stub (VG-EX) and the May 1, 1954 Saturday Evening Post that just happened to have Musial on the cover (EX). Each scorecard has been meticulously scored in pencil and grades (EX-MT to NM). Ironically, in attendance that day was an 8-year-old Nate Colbert, who would become the only other player in baseball history to accomplish this feat.
