Thanks (?) Internet: You, too, can now go through a dead baseball legend’s wallet

While browsing eBay for baseball-related comics and Godzilla DVDs (easily two of the 50,000 best uses for eBay), I came across something interesting being auctioned that had originally come from an estate sale for Stan Musial. It’s not unprecedented, in fact, I’ve written about it before.

 

However, this is, to the best of my knowledge, the first time ever that you can go through a dead Hall of Famer’s wallet. Because, well…. Stan Musial’s wallet, and it’s contents, are currently for sale.

Screen Shot 2014-05-28 at 7.20.57 PMYeah. Seriously. If you ever were a creeper enough to want to own a now-dead Hall of Famer’s family photos, insurance cards, proof of CPR training, honorary sheriff membership, devotional image of Pope John Paul II and a few hundred bucks… now you can.

And, guess what? You can even see the late, great, Stan the Man’s address, phone number and social security number.

Seriously. I’m not sure if this is funny or disgusting. Or, possibly, both.

Well…Only the internet, I guess.

  1. very odd — I guess the 40’s style b&w gal is the wife? I wonder how close she was to the pope who rates color. Think he ever flashed the sherrif association’s card when he was stopped for speeding? He seems like he would have been too ‘good’ to do that, but, you never know.
