    1951 Bobby Thomson Hits Pennant-Winning Home Run News Photograph, PSA/DNA Type 1. A unique vantage point of the most historic home run ever struck, the fabled "Shot Heard 'round the World." The paper caption on verso is almost comically unenthusiastic, reading simply, "Bobby Thomson, Giants hitting homer with two on to win the final playoff game at the Polo Grounds." It must have been written by a Dodgers fan. "Wide World Photo" stamping on verso. Image measures 7x9". Condition EX. LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1.
