Celebrating one of the most remarkable nights in Cincinnati baseball history! Take a step back in time to September 16, 1988, when the always-contending 1980s Pete Rose-led Reds were still in the hunt for the N.L. West pennant, and the first-place Los Angeles Dodgers were in town. Needing a win to keep hope alive in that raucous '88 season that included the famous Pete Rose 30-game suspension for inciting a near riot after a late-inning bad call; and the MLB All-Star Game being played at Riverfront Stadium in July, the Reds sent lefty star Tom Browning to the hill. After a nearly three-hour rain delay, Tom took to the mound in front of a depleted crowd, and began mowing them down. Stellar defense helped keep the Dodgers in check throughout the night. Then, with a chance at history in the 9th, it happened - flyout to right, groundout to short, and then a strikeout of pinch-hitter Tracy Woodson to seal it - a perfect game, the first in Cincinnati Reds history! This poster commemorates that magical night for eternity with amazing photography from the Cincinnati Enquirer that include the moment of elation from Tom Browning; the immediate celebration on the mound with catcher Jeff Reed and first baseman Nick Esasky; the team raising Tom up on their shoulders moments later (teammates Chris Sabo, Kal Daniels, coaches Jim Lett, Tony Perez, Dave Concepcion in the foreground); and the Browning family on the field with team owner Marge Schott in a pre-game ceremony later in September. Complete with the Reds' logo, sponsors' logos, and the title PERFECT GAME together with the date and location of the game, this one has it all, a commemoration for the ages. A rare 1980s Reds poster that will sure to become a centerpiece of your wall and your collection. Don't miss out! Limited quantity remains in our warehouse.
