World Series Moments

The next issue of Tuff Stuff’s Sports Collectors Monthly to hit newsstands and mailboxes will have a focus on the World Series, since it’s the October issue. So I bring out the call – what’s the great World Series moment?

I offer a few suggestions:
– Don Larsen’s perfect game (and no, he’s not in the Hall of Fame)
– Kirk Gibson’s Game 1 walk-off home run
– Joe Carter’s Game 6 walk-off home run
– Bill Mazeroski’s Game 7 walk-off home run
– Babe Ruth’s called shot
– Bill Buckner’s ball-through-the-legs error
– Carlton Fisk’s Game 6 foul-pole home run

My personal favorite is Gibson’s home run because I remember it so vividly and because it propelled the Dodgers to a sweep of the mighty A’s. It didn’t happen in Game 7, but I just remember being stunned that it happened.

Now, the bigger question – how did Gibson win MVP that year if the voting was supposedly done BEFORE the postseason?

Feel free to post thoughts here and in the forum.
