This is a very special picture. My father who is also named Mike got to meet Stan when he was 12 years old.. Lucky for me my name is also Mike. This was a gift my dad gave me when I won the battle over H.
Behind the picture is the actual letter that Stan took time to write out a full paragraph to my father in 1959. The front of the picture reads:
Baseball Fact: By the time Stan Musial retired 22 seasons later, he held 29 National League records and 17 major league marks. Among his accomplishments were 3,630 hits (the National League record when he retired), seven batting titles, 475 home runs (sixth when he retired), three Most Valuable Player awards and a record 24 All-Star games.
