It's the bottom of the 10th in Game Six of the 1986 World Series, and the New York Mets are just one strike away from once again losing their championship dreams. With two men on, Mookie Wilson steps up to bat and hits a slow grounder that, in any other game, would have been an easy out. But this was the World Series where the pressure of the moment or the Curse of the Bambino caused the slow grounder to trickle through Boston Red Sox's first baseman Bill Buckner's legs allowing the winning run in. Buckner's error, one of the most lasting and memorable moments in baseball history, forced the series to a seventh game where the New York Mets finally laid claim to their second World Series championship since 1969.
This fantastic 8x10 photograph of the error that saved a franchise was hand signed by both Mookie Wilson and Bill Buckner. The photo is framed in black round wood framing and includes a Steiner Sports Certificate of Authenticity.
