BOBBY THOMSON Signed envelope commemorating the New York Giants' 1951 pennant win, with a 2¼x3 b/w photo of All-Star Bobby Thomson kissing his bat. Thomson hit the "shot heard 'round the world" that won the Giants the pennant that year. Commemorative envelope signed "Bobby Thomson". 6½x3½ envelope with a 2¼x3 b/w photo affixed. Studio B & W Limited Edition Cachet. Label in bottom right corner: "The Shot Heard Round The World/The Polo Grounds Oct-3-1951". Postmarked New York City, Oct. 3, 1991. One 29-cent color Olympics stamp affixed. Thomson (1923-2010), hit what is perhaps the most famous home run in baseball history. His dramatic "shot heard 'round the world" on Oct. 3, 1951, a three-run, ninth-inning homer off Brooklyn pitcher Ralph Branca, capped the Giants' historic comeback to win the National League pennant (and compelled radio announcer Russ Hodges to give the equally famous call "The Giants win the pennant! The Giants win the pennant!"). Born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1923, the Staten Island Scot hit 24 or more homers six times in his seven full seasons with the Giants. Thomson had a comeback season for the Cubs in 1958, when he hit 21 homers and collected 82 RBI while batting .283. In 1969, Thomson was named to the Giants' all-time outfield. Envelope is open and empty. Lightly toned, soiled and creased, otherwise in fine condition.
