The St. Louis Cardinals 1969 season was the team's 88th season in St. Louis, Missouri and the 78th season in the National League. The Cardinals went 87-75 during the season and finished fourth in the National League East, 13 games behind the eventual NL pennant and World Series champion New York Mets. They joined the newly formed NL East when the MLB playoffs were expanded in 1969.

Pitcher Bob Gibson and outfielder Curt Flood won Gold Gloves this year.

1969 also marked the final season for the Busch Stadium grass before the installation of AstroTurf, which would be their home surface for the next 26 seasons.

After the season, long-time broadcaster Harry Caray was fired.
