Photographers have snapped shots of some of the finest moments in sports history, such as Ali's defeat of Liston, Michael Jordan’s tongue-out slam dunk, and Benjamin Franklin's legendary overtime sack of King George III. Grab a photogenic piece of athletic history with today's Groupon: for $119, you get a framed 8"x10" autographed photo of Kirk Gibson's iconic 1988 World Series home-run celebration from Powers Collectibles (a $238.95 value).
Powers Collectibles lets baseball fans and collectors of all ages, backgrounds, and palm spans relive memories with this 8"x10" photograph of Kirk Gibson's dramatic home run from Game 1 of the 1988 World Series. After sitting out most of Game 1 with injuries to his legs, Dodgers slugger Kirk Gibson stepped up to pinch-hit in the bottom of the ninth inning, with the Dodgers trailing the Oakland Athletics 4-3. Facing Hall of Fame closer Dennis Eckersley, Gibson smacked a full-count pitch over the fences to win the game, hobbling along the base path and giving an iconic underhand fist pump. Voted the greatest moment in Los Angeles sports history by the Los Angeles Sports Council in 1995, the famed hit captured in this print is an indelible image from baseball and mustache history. A certificate of authenticity adds to the item's mystique by ensuring that Gibson's signature is real and that baseball is an actual sport. Unlike mail-order uncles, today's deal includes shipping to any home, place of business, or unregulated submarine hatch within the continental United States.
