    1954 President Eisenhower Opening Day Large Photograph. Ike prepares to throw out the first pitch for what is to be a thrilling game to start the '54 season, as Mickey Vernon would end the three-hour contest with a dramatic tenth inning walk-off home run at Griffith Stadium. The oversized (11x14") vintage image, almost certainly produced for a dignitary of some sort due to its size and quality, offers a crystal-clear look at Eisenhower, a young Dick Nixon, Lyndon B. Johnson and managers Bucky Harris and Casey Stengel, with a crowd of dozens visible behind them. A few all but invisible wrinkles on the left side of the image do nothing to detract from the incredible eye appeal. Matted and framed to a museum-quality 16x18".
