Ty Cobb once called Stan “The Man” Musial the closest thing to a perfect baseball player. Indeed, few can match Musial’s accomplishments on the field. During his 22 seasons with the St. Louis Cardinals, Musial won seven batting titles, three MVP awards, three World Series championships, and went to 24 All Star games (two contests per year were played from 1959 to 1962). No wonder Musial is generally considered the greatest player ever to take the field for the Cardinals, although current first baseman, Albert Pujols, may one day give Musial a run for his money.

Thanks to his longevity, Musial’s career cut across several eras. He played in the same seasons as stars like Joe DiMaggio, Ted Williams, Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays, and Hank Aaron, and his records are every bit as impressive.
