Today's side deal fills the ears and hearts of Tigers fans with the timeless voice of the legendary Ernie Harwell, who called major-league games in Detroit for 42 years. For $12, you get Ernie Harwell's Audio Scrapbook delivered to you or the fan of your choice (a $24.79 value, includes shipping and handling). This four-disc scrapbook provides Ernie's calls and interviews across more than 60 years of historic sports moments.

Baseball historians will forever debate the proper spelling of Ernie's signature "lonnnnnnnnggg gone," though few will question his signature delivery over years of play-by-play moments. As a testament to Ernie's invaluable presence, in 1948 Brooklyn Dodgers owner Branch Rickey traded a minor-league catcher in order to obtain the rights to Ernie's distinct voice, making Harwell the only broadcaster ever to be traded for on-field talent. Relive some of major-league baseball's most influential games through the voice of an established legend or show a young slugger how to properly call the game from the couch with this four-disc scrapbook set.

With USPS media-mail shipping, delivery may take two to three weeks.

  • I was hooked the first time I heard Ernie say "lonnnnnnng gonnnnnne" after a Tigers home run. – Jemele Hill, ESPN
