Description



For Giants die-hards, the year 1954 means one thing above all else: "The Catch." Yet perhaps it's a misnomer. As astounding as the Say Hey Kid's acrobatic grab may have been, it was "The Throw" from deep center—with Mays launching the ball, wheeling around and falling to the ground—that ultimately held runner Larry Doby at third and kept the score tied. This creamy-toned ONL (Giles) ball from that pinnacle season features mostly "5-7" signatures, with the west panel stronger.

 

Sweet Spot: Whitey Lockman, Leo Durocher (stamp).

 

North Panel: Al Dark, Windy McCall, Marv Grissom, Foster Castleman, Johnny Antonelli (upside down), Bill Gardner, George Spencer, Dusty Rhodes.

 

South Panel: Willie Mays (early signature style), Ruben Gomez, Al Worthington, Ray Katt, Bill Taylor, Don Liddle, Paul Giel

 

West Panel: Hoyt Wilhelm, Hank Thompson, Jim Hearn, Monte Irvin, Wes Westrum, Alex Konikowski

 

East Panel: Dave Williams, Joey Amalfitano, Sal Maglie (upside down), Don Mueller (upside down), Larry Jansen, Al Corwin.
