The St. Louis Cardinals 1971 season was the team's 90th season in St. Louis, Missouri and the 80th season in the National League. The Cardinals went 90-72 during the season and finished second in the National League East, seven games behind the eventual NL Pennant and World Series champion Pittsburgh Pirates. The Cardinals scrapped their traditional buttoned jerseys for the T-shirt style uniform tops, and would keep them until they switched back in 1992.

Third baseman Joe Torre won the MVP Award this year, batting .363, with 24 home runs and 137 RBIs. Pitcher Bob Gibson won a Gold Glove this year.
