    1996 Baltimore Orioles A.L. Championship Series (Game One) Lineup Card Signed by Davey Johnson - "The Jeffrey Maier Game." In Game One of the 1996 ALCS between the Yankees and Orioles, Derek Jeter hit a ball to deep right in the bottom of the eighth with New York down 4-3. Just as Baltimore right fielder Tony Tarasco was about to make the catch, a twelve-year-old boy named Jeffrey Maier reached over the wall, into the field of play, and deflected the ball into the stands for what was ruled a game-tying home run. The Orioles went berserk but to no avail. Bernie later homered to win the game for the Yanks who went on to win the ALCS in five and then capture the World Series.

    Here is the Orioles lineup card from that fateful day for Baltimore fans. "1996 Official Batting Order (Visiting Club)" is dated "10/9/96" and signed by manager Davey Johnson in 9/10 vintage blue sharpie. Most ironic of all though is the defensive substitution of Tarasco for Bobby Bonilla. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.

    Guide Value or Estimate: $5,000 - up.
