I always love cards that commemorate a specific event or even better - a specific baseball event that I experienced.
This card is a great example of that and, while I was not in Chavez Ravine or even cheering for the Dodgers (quite the opposite)......I will NEVER forget watching Gibson tag that game-winning shot off of The Eck in Game 1. It crushed my Bash Brothers soul (a foreshadowing of many several decades to come, ugh) but delighted me as a baseball fan. This is probably one of my earliest baseball-watching memories and cards like this will help to ensure that none of us ever forget!
|Trivia: The "4" in Griffin's line refers to what stat?|
Here's the back of the card with a very succinct but powerful recap:
Very pleased to have this card in my collection - I wonder what the other 9 "clippings" are from this insert set? Can anybody fill me in?
Thanks for reading!
