Despite being offered a scholarship to the University of Pittsburgh for basketball and against his father's wishes, Stan Musial pursued a career on the diamond. Little did he know that he would be a key member helping the St. Louis Cardinals team dethrone the mighty New York Yankees. This 6" x 9-1/4" photo with 1942 newspaper caption affixed on back and Sporting News stamp.
"The Sporting News," which still exists today was founded in 1886 by Alfred H. Spink and became the preeminent American Publication covering baseball. This photograph came directly from the archives of the "Sporting News" and has been designated as such by the official Sporting News hologram that has been adhered to the reverse. This original hologram assures its provenance as being acquired directly from this historic archive.
