SGC-authenticated stub from September 29, 1963, the final game of the Hall of Fame career of "Stan The Man" Musial.  Musial went 2-for-3 in the game with an RBI in the Cardinals 3-2 win over Cincinnati, slamming the lid on a 22-year major league career that yielded 3,630 hits and a .331 lifetime batting average.  The most beloved player in St. Louis Cardinals history, Musial's last game capped an eventful final season, as just a few weeks earlier Musial's first grandchild was born, making him the first grandfather ever to hit a major league home run.  Just a few days prior to his final game, Cardinals owner Augie Busch announced Musial's number 6 would be retired, and made "Stan The Man" a vice president in the Cardinals organization.  He continued to have a visible public profile for decades after his retirement, before he passed away from Alzheimer's.

The stub is in EX condition save for the tear; some minor wear at the corners does not detract from the display.  An excellent ticket stub representing the final game of one of baseball's most beloved players.
