Bobby Thomson HR "Giants Win the Pennant" Game Scorecard/Program
 
3 Attachment(s)
I guess it is time for me to get some opinions on this one.
I have owned this scorecard for many, many years.
It was sold to me with other period items by a gentleman who told me he was at the game.
Note the absence of any out of town pitchers where they should normally be listed.
Have you ever seen that on a scorecard?
This might indicate that there were no other games being played that day (as would certainly be the case on this day).
Any thoughts on this being the scorecard from the Thomson HR game?

Based on what you told me I am certain that I do have the Bobby Thomson HR game program/scorecard.
Huggins and Scott auctioned it off in 2012.

Very cool to see a contemporaneous recording of that thrilling and historic moment in baseball history. Must've been something to have been in attendance, scoring that game, and placing the HR notation on the scorecard in the midst of the bedlam.

I'm not equating the games in any way, but when on Sept 18, 2006 the Dodgers, losing by four runs, hit 4 straight solo shots to tie the game in the bottom of the 9th. Including 2 off "Dodger Killer" Trevor Hoffman, then won it on a walkoff HR in the 10th. The the 55,000+ still in attendance (I know my wife missed all the fun when she headed to the car in the middle of the 9th) when pretty f'n crazy, and it sure was fun for me to note all of those homers on my scorecard.

Wow...what a great program!
Actually, two great examples :) Very nice to see.
