    Branca and Thomson Signed 1951 Dodger and Giants Programs and Tickets. 1951 saw the occasion of the most famous National League playoff series in history. The "Shot Heard "Round the World" walk-off homerun hit by New York Giants outfielder Bobby Thomson off of Brooklyn Dodgers pitcher Ralph Branca won the National League pennant. The offered lot consists most significantly of the playoff program from the fated Game 3, fully scored and signed on the cover by both Thomson and Branca. Additionally there is a 1951 Dodgers Game 1 program which has been partially scored (only the at-bats of Dem Bums have been recorded). This program from the series' only game played in Brooklyn may just prove to be tougher than those from Game 3. Lastly, from the same playoff series we present two complete tickets, one each from Game 2 and Game 3 of the series as well as a complete ticket from Game 3 of the 1951 World Series at the Polo Grounds. An exceptional pickup for the astute baseball historian.
