What'll it be, Mac, the Musial?

I found this set of glasses at a garage sale a couple weekends ago.

I picked up 2 of these "Stan Musial and Biggies" cocktail glasses.

Cardinals legend Stan Musial bought into Biggie Garagnani's steakhouse restaurant in 1949.  Surpringly, I could find a single image of it on the internet.

I believe that image is supposed to be the stylized heads of a baseball player and a chef, but to me, it just looks like a pair's attributes.

At the same sale, I bought a set of 4 1967 World Series Cardinals glasses.  Stan had retired as a player in 1963, but was General Manager when the Cardinals won their 8th World Series against the Boston Red Sox and his name appears on the glass as well.
