Jackie Robinson and teammates mob pinch hitter, George Shuba at home plate in this 6.5" x 8.5" news service photo from the United Press Association. Shuba had just launched a walk-off home run, a 2-run blast off Pirates reliever Ted Wilks to end this early-50's contest. Shot during beginning of the summer in June, 1952 the Dodgers were on their way to 96 wins, a National League pennant and facing the New York Yankees in a classic 7-game World Series. Light unobtrusive creasing is visible in the upper-left corner, otherwise photo surface remains pleasingly free of obvious imperfections. Mild toning is present along the left edge of verso which also includes full paper caption over United Press Association credit stamping. Authenticated and encapsulated as a Type 1 photo by PSA/DNA.
