Also see . . .  1967 World Series on Wikipedia. Gives details about the legendary series, which was the first World Series win for the Cardinals while making their home at the "new" Busch Stadium. It was considered to be a rematch of the 1946 World Series, in which the Cardinals played against the Red Sox. The Sox lost both the 1946 and 1967 series, but would later have their revenge decades later in the 2004 (where they broke the so-called "Curse of the Bambino") and 2013 World Series games, where they both won against the Cardinals.
