Missouri History Museum features Browns Jersey in New Ad

          St. Louis is celebrating its 250th anniversary.  The Missouri History Museum opened an exhibit this month, displaying 250 artifacts that are especially representative of St. Louis' 250-year history. (Specifically, the exhibit "tells the history of the city through 50 people, 50 places, 50 moments, 50 images, and 50 objects").   As we reported to you earlier, a game-worn jersey of Browns' outfielder Jim Delsing was selected as one of the "People's Choice Artifacts", testifying to the continued popularity of the St. Louis Browns even two generations later.

          Reading the St. Louis Post-Dispatch this week, I see that the History Museum is doubling down on the popularity of the Browns.  The jersey in question is one of five items displayed in a quarter-page advertisement for the exhibit.  60 years later, the Browns still carry a lot of clout!
