The 1945 St. Louis Cardinals were depleted from the war, but good leadership and savvy veterans still powered them to 95 wins and a second place finish in the National League. They may have lost Stan Musial, but Billy Southworth pulled a rabbit out of his hat with Whitey Kurowski batting .323 and the lowest starter on the team still hitting .254! The offered crystal clear photograph is a double weight in fantastic shape making this one of the top war-time images we have ever handled!
