    So says the plate on the Sports Gallery Exclusive 8x10 Display celebrating this unforgettable moment in Giants franchise history. On October 3, 1951 during the ninth inning of Game 3 of a three-game playoff between the NY Giants and the Brooklyn Dodgers for the NL pennant, recently deceased Bobby Thomson came to bat with one out. Facing Dodgers pitcher Ralph Branca he connected on the second pitch to smash the ball down the left field line just above the 315-foot sign and landed five rows deep in the stands. Thomson's "Shot Heard Round the World" gave the Giants a 5-4 victory over their biggest rival and a trip to the World Series. Capture this immortal moment with one of these classic, and historic, 8x10 photographs of the famous HR dual-signed by BOTH Bobby and Ralph. One is a horizontal shot of the hit and the other is a vertical celebration shot taken as Bobby crosses the plate (check out Jackie Robinson in Centerfield!) But for either photo it is the presentation that makes this piece - Sports Gallery Quality Framed in black wood, UV-protective glass (very important for signature protection), classic matting and SGA Exclusive Plate highlighting Russ Hodges' famous call. A timeless collectible and great piece of Sports Art that any baseball fan would love!
