The St. Louis Cardinals 1962 season was the team's 81st season in St. Louis, Missouri and the 71st season in the National League. The Cardinals went 84-78 during the season and finished 6th in the NL, 17½ games behind the San Francisco Giants. With the additions of the Houston Colt .45s and the New York Mets through the NL's first expansion, 1962 also marked the first 162-game season for the Cardinals, who became the first NL club to wear names on the backs of their uniforms that season.

Pitcher Bobby Shantz and first baseman Bill White won Gold Gloves this year.
