Bob Gibson dominance...there was nothing else quite like it! St. Louis truly had something special in the 1960s and early 1970s in the big, strong, flamethrowing starter from Nebraska, who was already the hero of two Cardinals World Series championships when he stepped to the Busch Stadium mound in Game 1 of the 1968 Fall Classic against the Detroit Tigers. Beginning what was expected to be a Cardinals romp to victory over the American League champs, Gibson did not disappoint that October afternoon. With the fans thrilling to every pitch, Gibson delivered with dominance and flair. One Tiger after another fell to Gibby's unique and deadly all-out effort he showed with every pitch - McAuliffe...Stanley...Kaline...Horton...Northrup...Freehan...and in the at-bat pictured here, the powerful cleanup man, Norm Cash. Strikeout after strikeout, poured in to the rising crescendo of cheers. In the end, it was a complete game five hitter, with only one walk, and an incredible 17 strikeouts! One for the ages, and one captured for all-time in this legendary black-and-white classic. Yes, history will tell us that the Tigers were stronger than expected, and after pushing the series to a seventh game, managed to upset Gibson in Game 7 for the series win - but on this day, it all belonged to Bob. From the classic uniform style, to the falling-off-the-mound style, to the intense concentration on his face, to the fans in the stands, to the brilliant black-and-white throwback look, it's all here! A SportsPosterWarehouse.com exclusive, this poster is printed direct from the original photographic source, and includes logos from baseball's Cooperstown Collection and the National Baseball Hall of Fame, and is affixed with an MLB authentic serialized hologram. A brilliant piece of baseball history for your wall, another black-and-white classic from SportsPosterWarehouse!
