Here's another one relating to the FanFest:
Cardinals Memorabilia, World Series Trophies and Historical Information on Display at Major League Baseball All-Star FanFest

The history and traditions of baseball will be on display for fans at Major League Baseball All-Star FanFest, July 10 – July 14 at America’s Center in downtown St. Louis. Fans can learn about the rich past of baseball in St. Louis as well as look forward to the future with present-day St. Louis baseball stars at exhibits including Hometown Heroes, the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum and the Negro Leagues.

The Hometown Heroes exhibit takes a comprehensive look at the history of baseball in St. Louis. The display will feature scale models of Sportsman’s Park, Busch Stadium (1966-2005) and the current Busch Stadium along with actual stadium seats from each ballpark. The Cardinals’ last three World Series trophies will be on display as well as memorabilia from former Cardinals All-Stars. The exhibit is centered around walls reflecting on the Club’s roots in the community and its promise for the future:

Timeline Wall – The winning tradition of the Cardinals in St. Louis, going all the way back to 1892 is covered in the extensive text and pictures that highlights the great history of baseball in the city, including the American League St. Louis Browns (1902-1953) and the Negro National League St. Louis Stars (1920-1940).

Champions Wall – Fans will be able to relive each of the ten World Series Championship titles won by the Cardinals.

Hall of Fame Wall – St. Louis Cardinals players who have achieved Hall of Fame status through their accomplishments with the team are featured here, as well as the many players who earned that status even though their time with the Cardinals was brief.

Hometown Heroes Wall – An outstanding ambassador for the city and the Cardinals both on and off the field, Stan Musial was voted as St. Louis’ Hometown Hero by fans.

Artist’s Wall – Missouri native and sculptor Harry Weber was selected to create a bronze maquette of Stan Musial. Fans have the chance to see the process of sculpting and learn more about the casting process by visiting this artist as he works on this project.
