The NY Giants' Bobby Thompson capped one of the greatest seasonal comebacks when he connected on Brooklyn Dodgers' pitcher Ralph Branca fastball and deposited a three-run, pennant-clinching, walk-off home run into the left field stands of the Polo Grounds in the ninth inning of the deciding game of the 1951 NL playoff series. The "Shot Heard Round the World" remains forever chiseled into baseball lore, confirming Berra's declaration "It ain't over, until it's over." The barrel of this pristine black, 35-inch, Model 125 Louisville Slugger commemorates this epic of baseball legend. It has been engraved in silver with "RALPH BRANCA/BOBBY THOMPSON/OCTOBER 3, 1951/"THE SHOT HEARD/ROUND THE WORLD"/71 OF 100." Thompson boldly signed in vivid silver Sharpie below his name's engraving; Branca boldly signed in vivid silver Sharpie below his, both signatures grade 9 - 10. A COA from PSA/DNA (#U69526) accompanies this item.
