1963 Team Ball Signed by Musial, Schoendienst, Minoso & 13 More St. Louis Cardinals.

Lot 59. 1963 Team Ball Signed by Musial, Schoendienst, Minoso & 13 More St. Louis Cardinals. These three Hall of Fame players head the list of signers on this Rawlings Bobby Shantz ex to ex-m baseball.  Stan Musial and Minnie Minoso autographed the north panel, and Red Schoendienst, the sweet spot.  Generally, the autographs are nm 7.  Joining Musial and Minoso are Ed Bauta, Tom Smith and an unidentified signer.  Smith’s autograph on this ball is uncommon; he never played in a regular-season MLB game.   Hal Schumacher shares the sweet spot with Schoendienst.  Autographs on the south panel are by Curt Flood, Tim McCarver, Johnny Keane (manager) and Eddie Stanky (in charge of player development); on the east, Howard Pollet (coach), Carl Sawatski, Cal Neeman and Ray Washburn; and on the west, Ken Boyer, Jeffrey Long, Al Cosgrove, Ernie Broglio and one other that is unidentified, apparently by a Japanese player.  Bobby Shantz signed the panel with his name printed on the ball.  A scuff obscures the “u” and part of the “r” in Curt Flood’s signature, and slightly affects one letter each in the McCarver and Keene autographs.  This ball may very well have been signed at spring training.  Four identified signers did not play for the Cardinals in 1993: Minoso was traded to the Senators on April 2.  After spending part of the season in the minors, Neeman played for the Indians and Senators.  And Smith and Cosgrove never played regular-season MLB baseball; in 1963, Cosgrove was the first baseman for the Cardinals’ Winnipeg team.  This ball has 20 autographs, three by Hall of Fame stars, two unidentified, two by farm system players and 13 others.  PSA/DNA Pre-Certified.  Winning Bid $113.
