As talented as he was classy, Musial spent his entire 22 year with the St. Louis Cardinals where he won three MVPs and three World Series. Musial was one of those rare players who can be considered among the best players in Baseball history without generating much of a counter argument. Along with the accolades mentioned earlier, Musial won seven…
