Lost in the story of the "Shot Heard Round the World" and the epic 1951 playoff series between the Dodgers and Giants is that the Dodgers almost didn't even force a playoff. It took a dramatic 14th inning homer from Jackie Robinson to even put the Dodgers in position to challenge the Giants in a three game series that would end in the most dramatic series in baseball history. A bold image of Robinson from October 1, 1951 as he was congratulated by Chuck Dressen on his epic blast. A cool photo we have never seen before and in pretty nice shape overall with a crease on the lower left.
