Get your Limited Edition Replica Set of Busch Stadium Medallions

HIGHLAND, ILLINOIS:  St. Louis Cardinals fans…get ready for the 2006
season and the opening of your NEW Busch Stadium.

WISHSTONE Chisel and Mallet, Incorporated in conjunction with
BirdOnBat.com, are proud to present a Limited Edition Replica Set of Busch
Stadium Medallions. The (7) 16 x 18 resin-replica plaques are finished in
the same ‘Stadium Red’ color as installed on the NEW Busch Stadium.
However, there are only 114 total pieces available for purchase, exclusively
through the Cardinals Team Store at the stadium.

“These 7 designs are special…they’re unique in that they tell a story
of the birds-on-the-bat evolution”, says owner Steve Drueke. “Plus, this
was an opportunity to commemorate 114 years of Cardinals baseball by
offering a limited number of 114 plaques in Stadium Red for purchase.”

The 114 replica plaques in ‘Stadium Red’ finish are hand-numbered by
artist and stone carver, Gabe Drueke.

“It was a privilege to sit down with the Cardinals’ museum curator and
review memorabilia to identify the most significant changes made to the
designs over the years”, says owner and artist, Gabe Drueke. “It’s
fascinating to note the ’52 plaque was pulled directly from a 1952 Stan
Musial jersey in the Cardinals Hall of Fame Museum.”

The plaques are offered thru licensing of MLB and intended for indoor,
display use. The Team Store will be conducting an artist signing by
Gabe on April 8th at the stadium during their open house event. Times are
12 to 3 PM and 5 to 8 PM.
