The visuals in our collective memories are undeniable - No. 1 diving into the shortstop hole to intercept a sure base hit. No. 45 following through after delivering a slider for strike three. No. 20 taking second via a pop-up slide, another stolen base in the record books. No. 6 waving farewell to a full house at Grand and Dodier, his incomparable career coming to a close.
Of course, they're not the only numbers that have flashed across the pantheon of Cardinals history. Since the franchise permanently donned uniform numbers in 1932, more than 1,300 players have been assigned one of the 75 numbers officially worn in a Cardinals regular-season game. Some players made the number synonymous with their name; others passed into history with hardly a second look.
The 2015 Cardinals Yearbook presents a fascinating history of the names behind every Cardinals uniform number - from the legends to the long-forgotten. More than a roster of names at each number (that's just part of the package), we'll select the Cardinal who most distinguished each number, and profile other Redbirds who made the number stand out.
At 224 pages, the 2015 Yearbook also delivers the eye-catching content that makes the yearbook the quintessential souvenir of each season, with action photos and studio portraits of every member of the 2015 team. An incredible value at just $15, it's the perfect gift for Cardinals fans of all ages!
