Description

“The Shot Heard ‘Round the World.” The game-winning home run by New York Giants outfielder Bobby Thomson (1923-2010) off Brooklyn Dodgers pitcher Ralph Branca (1926-2016) at the Polo Grounds to win the National League pennant on October 3, 1951. As a result of the "shot", the Giants won the game 5-4, defeating the Dodgers in their pennant playoff series, 2 games to 1. Thomson's homer, and the Giants' victory after overcoming a double-digit deficit in the standings in the weeks preceding the playoff, are also sometimes known as the “Miracle of Coogan's Bluff.” 10” x 8” sepia toned photograph of the homerun, signed by both.
