Profile

An icon in St. Louis, where he spent his entire career, Stan Musial has been a very accommodating signer throughout his life. From his early years in the majors up until modern time, Musial has signed his name the only way he knows how, "Stan Musial." His autograph always featured an every-letter signature. Through time, it has transformed and shrunk considerably in size and shape, but remained much like it did in the 1940s.

Finding a gorgeous Musial signature on any medium related to baseball shouldn't be a challenge with plenty of signed memorabilia available in the marketplace. In fact, Musial created his own sports memorabilia company during the hobby boom called Stan the Man, Inc., which provides signed Musial memorabilia direct to the hobby.
