While everyone remembers the 1951 three game playoff between the Dodgers and Giants for "the shot heard round the world" it was actually a long and drawn out series with ups and downs on both sides, including a rain delay. Seen here, the tarps are down and the fans are getting restless without any way of knowing that the most famous moment in baseball history was just a day away! Interesting image in fine condition, issued by Acme and with a full paper caption on the back.
