Product Description & Features
- It's the bottom of the 10th in Game Six of the 1986 World Series, and the New York Mets are just one strike away from once again losing their championship dreams.
- With two men on, Mookie Wilson steps up to bat and hits a slow grounder that, in any other game, would be an easy out.
But this is the World Series, where the pressure of the moment or maybe even the Curse of the Bambino causes the ball to trickle through Boston Red Sox first baseman Bill Buckner's legs, allowing the winning run to score. Buckner's error, one of the most lasting and memorable moments in baseball history, forced the series to a seventh game where the New York Mets finally laid claim to their second World Series championship and first since 1969. This 8x10 photograph of that infamous play has been hand signed by both Mookie Wilson and Bill Buckner, with Wilson adding the inscription, "10/25/86." A Steiner Sports Certificate of Authenticity is included.
