Stan Musial made his major league debut on Sept. 17, 1941. He went on to win seven National League batting crowns, three MVP awards and helped the St. Louis Cardinals capture three World Series championships. Musial spent his entire 22-year career with the Cards and made the All-Star team 24 times — baseball held two All-Star games each summer for a few seasons. One of the greatest players in the history of baseball, Musial died at the age of 92 in 2013. For the 75th anniversary of his big league debut, we present these classic SI photos of "Stan the Man."
