Hi James

I know you are a Yankees fan (as I am). I think Leon and Frank Wakefield's suggestions of collecting certain player's cards.....namely Stan Musial....is a really great idea.

Musial is one of my favorite (non Yankees), simply because I collect Pennsylvania-born ballplayers. Pennsylvania has produced many BB (and FB) players over the years.

Sixty-eight years ago this month, "Stan the Man" set a new record. It all started with a NYC sports reporter, who wrote that Musial lacked "Home Run hitting power". So,
Stan had the last laugh. The Cardinals were at the Polo Grounds for a Double-Header vs the Giants. Stan hit 3 HR's in the 1st game and 2 HR's in the 2nd game. He also
hit 2 singles and Walked twice that day.
