October 2, 1978 - another moment of Yankee magic, and another dagger in the hearts of the Red Sox faithful. With the Yankees trailing 2-1 in the seventh inning of the sudden-death AL East Playoff game, light-hitting shortstop Bucky Dent stepped up to the plate with two men on and nobody out. Standing only 5' 9", the diminutive defensive specialist was towered over by two imposing objects: 6' 5" Red Sox pitcher Mike Torrez up on the mound, and the 37-foot high Green Monster in left field. Yet, as we all know, this David beat the two Goliaths, launching Torrez' third pitch high over the Monster to give New York the lead, and suck the life out of a shocked Fenway Park.

Printed in poster size exclusively for The Sports Poster Warehouse, this amazing image brings you back to that glorious moment in Yankee history, with Dent connecting on the hit that would change his life and bring more Fall glory to the Bronx. Printed in grainy black-and-white for that classic vintage look, and authorized with an official MLB Authentic serialized hologram, it gives you the the ultimate commemoration of one of the most memorable homers in Yankees history, and one of the most notorious disasters in Red Sox history. Torture Red Sox fans forever - hang Bucky F'n Dent on your wall! A true vintage classic, perfect for the home or office of any long-time fan.
