NATS: Bryce Harper and Stan Musial swapped autographed jerseys

According to reports, the late, great Stan Musial had requested a jersey autographed by Washington Nationals phenom Bryce Harper last year. Musial reciprocated. “Stan the Man” died early this month at age 92.

“They [The Nationals] just said, ‘Hey, we need a jersey signed and we need you to personalize it’ and whatnot, and I said ‘OK, to who?’ and they said [Musial] and I was like, whoa! What a great honor to sign a jersey for a great Hall of Fame guy like that. I was lucky enough and blessed to have him ask for my autograph,” Harper said.
