ABOUT THIS COLLECTIBLE
They called him the "Say Hey Kid" when he was in his prime, but today many people regard him as probably the best all-around baseball player in the history of the game. His staggering career statistics include 3,283 hits, 1,903 RBIs, .308 Batting Average and 660 HRs, 4th on the All-Time Career Home Run List. He also was a 24x(!) All-Star and 2x NL MVP. And over 60 years ago this Hall of Famer made "The Catch. " It came in New York's Polo Grounds in the first game of the 1954 World Series. With the score tied late in the game, Indians first baseman Vic Wertz clubbed a long drive to deep centerfield at the Polo Grounds. At the crack of the bat, Mays turned his back to the plate, raced for the outfield wall, glanced up at the last minute, and pulled the ball in over his shoulder. The play killed the Indians' threat and the Giants went on to win the game and sweep the Series, the last Giants' World Series victory before their 2010 "Torture" Championship. This Sports Gallery Exclusive horizontal shadowbox includes the classic photograph of this remarkable catch, an official MLB baseball hand-signed by Willie, and commemorative plate describing this historic baseball moment. OR YOU CAN CREATE YOUR OWN PLATE! It is available w/ or w/o replica ticket from the game. Shadowbox w/ TIcket measures 18"h x 20 1/2" w. Both are Quality Framed in thick black wood (no electrical tape sides like lesser shadowbox framings), UV-protective glass, and classic matting, nobody makes Shadowboxes as nice our ours.
