ABOUT THIS COLLECTIBLE
An All-America football flanker and baseball outfielder at Michigan State University, Gibson was Detroit's number-one pick in the June 1978 draft. But it was with the Los Angeles Dodgers that Kirk experienced one of the most memorable baseball moments in history. Joining the Dodgers as a free agent in 1988, Kirk Gibson's intensity spurred the team to a World Series Championship highlighted by his fabled Hollywood-like game-winning home run in the Series opener. The National League MVP that year, Kurt was kept out of the lineup by a leg injury. But with two outs in the bottom of the ninth, Mike Davis on base, and the Dodgers down 4-3, Kirk stepped to the plate as a pinch-hitter. Visibly wincing on each swing, he fouled off four pitches before he hit a slider into the right field stands off the A's HOF relief ace Dennis Eckersley. Photographs of Kirk pumping his fists and limping round the bases, forever immortalized Kirk in baseball history. Amazingly, it was Kirk's only at-bat in the Series but it was enough to inspire the Dodgers to a five game Series victory over the heavily favored Athletics. This terrific Dodgers...and baseball...moment is captured in this great Sports Gallery collectible. The 16x20 photograph is hand-signed and Sports Gallery Quality Framed in black wood, UV-protective glass, classic Dodgers double-matting and commemorative Floating Plate that includes Dodgers logo. OR YOU CAN CREATE YOUR OWN PLATE! The display is also available with an inset replica ticket from the game ($40 Face Value?!). This classic makes the perfect gift for any Dodgers fan!
