Historically among the elite of National League franchises, the St. Louis Cardinals enjoyed another banner year in 1985. The Redbirds turned in a 101-win season while capturing the NL pennant, but succumbed to cross-state rivals the Kansas City Royals in a seven game World Series meeting. Celebrate this fine Cardinals campaign with this 1985 team-signed baseball. This handsome ONL/Feeney ball shows (NM+) quality in serving as the backdrop for (28) Cardinals autographs. Auction LOA from JSA.
