There was a weird moment during game four of the 1953 World Series where Roy Campanella tagged out Billy martin at home plate and put a little something extra on it. For obvious aesthetic reasons, this photo has become one of the most famous of the decade which produced a ton of memorable moments between these two clubs. This specimen is the only completely vintage example of this famous moment we have ever offered, issued by the Associated Press and stamped on the back with the date. The photo presents well with some artistic painting on the lower left corner from editorial use and some other stray marks from the same newspaper usage. An undervalued image which is one of the most famous in baseball history!
