A fantastic example that dates to the 1962 season, offered here is the first Stan Musial game used glove that we can remember handling. Displaying outstanding use but in fine condition with original lacing that is not torn, this Rawlings model TGP has "Stan 6" written below the thumb in faded, vintage marker and also "Stan 6" written in the same faded marker on the pinky - it even appears as the writing on the thumb has been done by Stan. This very important piece of St. Louis Cardinals history comes with a complete letter from PSA and also a letter from the son of Vern Benson (Cardinals 3rd base coach) who was given the glove by Stan the Man in 1963. The model of consistency over his storied 22-year career, Musial carried a .331 batting average and ranks second in All-Time All Star Game appearances with 24 (early in his career, All Star Games were held twice a season). Comes with PSA LOA. Photomatched to Getty image 141027211, a photograph with Yankee Hall of Fame legend Mickey Mantle.
