St. Louis Cardinals 2013 Yearbook: Stan Musial Through the Years (Excerpts, Photos)
Musial earned style points beyond the batter's box, donning fashionable attire of the times for this publicity photo at his restaurant in front of a painting he received in January 1953. The painting hangs today at Busch Stadium III, inside the Redbird Club concessions area.
Just 31⁄2 weeks after reaching the 300-homer plateau, Musial marks the career milestone of 2,500 hits with Wally Moon (left) and Red Schoendienst after achieving it in high style - a game-tying two-run homer that paves the way for a 9-5 win over the Reds, June 29 at Busch.
Calling selection to the All-Star Game an honor second only to playing in the World Series, His swing still a thing of beauty in 1956, Musial knocked in 109 runs to capture his second NL RBI title, tied for second in doubles, and ranked fourth in both hits and batting average.
