i dont believe he actually meant it that way.

Yes, this is what I meant. Clearly he was in deteriorating health. I know he was one of the rare gracious athletes and probably wanted to continue to sign. But at some point Topps needs to just say 'ok, thank you Stan, we're going now.'

I am in no way saying that Stan should be thought of badly for continuing to sign. Just that Topps continued to exploit his generosity far beyond the level of decency.

Thank you for clarifying, great post. Apologies to you, hope no offense taken.

Unfortunately there are some of the "idiots" I referenced in my post who have made fun of his sig in the past on these boards. I wish that group would realize what he was as a person and a player...I would rather pull a Musial auto than a Harper or Trout any day of the week.

How so? By defending a humanitarian and war veteran? Yeah, I guess that is pretty pathetic.

Aren't you one of the buttclowns who is always starting fights on here and making little sense in your arguments? The name is familiar...so I believe that is true.

The "idiots" aren't 'making fun' of his signature at all. Think you're completely misreading people's words. Its more of thinking its bad that Musial, as well as several others players, was in declining health yet card companies and card show promoters still pull them to keep on signing when they were barely even able to hold and move a pen around. Yes it would be great to get Stan Musial's signature but not at the point where his worn out body can barely even sign what looks to be his signature
