Stan the Man

#6 Stan Musial "Stan the Man" - 9" x 12" acrylic on paper. Almost went with Al Kaline here - since I actually saw Kaline play but Musial was just too good. Career .331 batting average, 3630 hits (4th all-time), 6134 in total bases - second only to Aaron. Musial won 7 batting titles, 3 World Series with the Cardinals and was an All-Star 24 times (a record shared with Mays and Aaron). Other 6s of note - Steve Garvey (no way). Braves who wore 6 - One of my favorites Clete Boyer, Davey Johnson and of course Bobby Cox. #5 - lots of good players wore number five
