August 29, 1954 St. Louis Cardinals vs New York Giants – Willie Mays Career HR #63 ticket stub

On July 23, 1954 the St. Louis Cardinals played the NY Giants in a day game doubleheader in front of 30,477 fans at Busch Stadium.  The first game was won by the Cards Al Brazle (Marv Grissom taking the L) by a score of 5-4.  The second game the Giants came back with Al Corwin taking the win, Hoyt Wilhelm achieving the save and Joe Presko taking the L.

Willie Mays would hit his 39th Homer of the season for career #63.  He also won the MVP that year in helping the Giants win the World Series, but that would come later.  Stan Musial would hit 2 Homers that day (one in each game) for HR’s #290 and 291 respectively. Great ticket!
