Baseball icon Stan Musial’s St. Louis home for sale with $1.7 million asking price (Slideshow)

When baseball legend and St. Louis icon Stan Musial died in January at 92 he left behind a legion of fans and a long list of honors, including having the fourth-most hits in MLB history. He also left behind a 5,286-square-foot, three-acre estate in St. Louis that was built in 1962. The house is now on the market for $1.795 million.

It has four bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a pool and a mid-century style you'd expect from someone born in 1920 — like a checkered marble floor in the entry way and a decent amount of pastel in the living room.

We've heard of people buying old cars owned by famous people, but how about Musial's house? For a hardcore Cardinals fan, that's a one-of-a-kind souvenir, definitely something to talk about at dinner. And at a modest price when you consider what some houses sell for. Andruw Jones' mansion cost $5 million, and he didn't have anything near Musial's 3,630 career hits. Though, as was Stan "The Man's" style, he lived modestly compared to Andruw Jones' of the world.

Worth a note here: Musial died in his home. That might be a morbid thought to some, but others might believe it means the spirit of a great ballplayer lives on there. If that rubs off on a young hitter, that might be worth an extra million dollars.

Baseball is back. Don't miss anything.
