Stanley Theater in Luling, Texas

Small town Texas provides unique MLB items

By: Danny Laurel

If you ever have the opportunity to visit the Texas Hill Country, make sure you pit stop in small-town Luling, Tx.  Located about an hour and a half southwest of Austin, Luling is also home to some of the best barbecue in the state.  Notorious for its smell of propane, Luling is also home to the Luling Thump Festival celebrating the watermelon.

While there, visit The Stanley.  A renovated movie house that now features antiques and collecibles. It’s open 10-5 Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday and 12:30-5 p.m. on Sundays.  It features everything from antique furniture, books, dishes, tobacco items and, if I’m luck, sports memorabilia.

Here is the gallery of items that I found on my most recent visit.  Great items included vintage media guides from such teams as the 1968 Detroit Tigers and Baltimore Orioles, vintage Baseball Magazine with the late Stan Musial, and much more.  Please enjoy.  If you even make a visit let me know!
