2004 Absolute Memorabilia Spectrum Red Schoendienst 1/100
Albert "Red" Schoendienst was a player on the Cardinals 1946 World Series Championship team. He also managed the Cardinals to a World Series win in 1967. Despite being over 90 years old, he has remained active as a coach and guest instructor during spring training. He is also the answer to my trivia question in Countdown post #6. He wore #6 as a rookie in 1945 while Stan Musial was serving in the militay. He switched to #2 the following year and has worn it ever since. The Cardinals retired the #2 in 1996.
