The fourth estate’s sanctuary at Busch Stadium was named the Jim Toomey Press Box in 2002 to honor the longtime Cardinals’ executive and former St. Louis Star-Times sportswriter, who died in March that year. This lot offers the starting lineup card that was posted just inside the doors. The erasable, silver aluminum-framed lineup card is 33 x 53” with “Visitors”, “Cardinals” and “Umpires” in red lettering. EX. Finally, there is a black Lucent press box telephone, with the kind of use that conjures up images of frantic, ink-stained scribes screaming into it to get the rewrite man to change the lead. (Estimate $300 - $500)
