1964 Topps All Stars - The National League Infield

In 1963 the entire starting infield for the NL was made up of St. Louis Cardinals. The corner infielders, White and Boyer also earned Gold Gloves in 1963. In addition, their Hall of Fame teammate, Stan Musial, was making his final All Star appearance in his last MLB season. Despite the All Star infield and leading the league in Runs and Batting average, the 1963 Cards fell short in the pennant race. They were no match for the Dodgers pitching dominance. 

The Cardinals offence in the 1963 All Star game didn't mirror the regular season. Collectively, the Cardinal All Stars had just 2 hits in 18 at-bats.
