Where does Kirk Gibson’s homer in the 1988 World Series rank? Top 10 baseball moments of all time? Top five? #1? Wherever you personally rank it: the drama is hard to deny. The greatest closer in the game — Dennis Eckersley — going toe-to-toe with a guy that could barely walk, but yet was the catalyst for the Dodgers’ offense that season. Pinch hit, bottom of the ninth, 3-2 count. It really doesn’t get any more dramatic than that.
So I welcome you to relive that moment — with the tremendous Vin Scully on the call — all with baseball cards. Up next? Recreating that infamous homer off Jose Canseco’s dome. What say you, YouTube auteur?
