Being a huge Stan Musial fan. I am thankful that he did sign autographs at shows, etc. I got to visit with the legend during a lull at a card show. Gave me goose bumps. Without these shows, i would only know him from a distance. Stan "the great man" Musial.

Baseball great Stan Musial died over the weekend. He was 92. He will be missed.

In September 2007, I was invited to make a speech to a civic group in St. Louis. I told the person who invited me I would come on one condition: that I could meet baseball great Stan Musial.

"That's no problem," he said. "We are members of the same sports club."

I forget what I said in the speech -- and the audience probably has long forgotten, too -- but I will always remember having lunch with Stan Musial.

Stan regaled me with baseball stories.
