Dodgers’ fans can walk-off with the best of times and the worst of times in this long-ball lot depicting two of the most dramatic home runs in the team’s history, albeit at the opposite ends of the spectrum. Dodgers second baseman Jackie Robinson stands with his hands on his hips while pitcher Ralph Branca turns his back in disgusted dejection as Giants players mob Bobby Thomson at the plate after his historic “Shot Heard ‘Round the World” clinched the National League Pennant for the New York Giants on October 3, 1951. Both Thomson’s and Branca’s blue sharpie signatures adorn this sentimental sepia-toned 11” x 14” photo in a 16” x 20” frame with “The Shot Heard ‘Round the World” inscription and a NY Giants black-and-orange trimmed matte. Thirty seven years later gimpy Kirk Gibson propped himself up off the trainer’s table to fire his own shot heard round the world hitting the most dramatic pinch-hit home run in World Series history off 1988 American League Cy Young Award winner Dennis Eckersley in Game One of the Series between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Oakland A’s. This 8” x 10” color photo, signed in thick silver sharpie, focuses on Gibson slowly making his way around the bases with both his fists clenched aloft after connecting for his legendary blast. The Thomson/Branca image contains PSA/DNA COA and sticker; the Gibson image is affixed with an MLB authentication hologram.
