This is my Ralph Branca & Bobby Thomson autographed baseball. The are best known for "The Shot Heard 'Round the World".
"Shot Heard 'round the World" is the walk-off home run hit by New York Giants outfielder Bobby Thomson off Brooklyn Dodgers pitcher Ralph Branca at the Polo Grounds to win the National League pennant on October 3, 1951. As a result of the "shot", the Giants won the game 5-4, defeating the Dodgers in their pennant playoff series, 2 games to 1. It is one of the most famous moments in Major League Baseball history.
Not a very expensive piece but it is cool to have.
