For those who don't recognize this immediately, this is the moment when the Cardinals won the 1985 World Series.
Famous Ali moment.
Buckner walking off of the field at the conclusion of Game 6, having just let Wilson's grounder roll through his legs. For some reason, he had chosen to wear his Cubs batting glove in the field, while having worn different batting gloves at the plate. Taking on BOTH the Curse of the Bambino AND the Billy Goat Curse, that's a lot of bad karma at play.
Sports Illustrated's 1967 Sportsman of the Year, Carl Yastrzemski.
Jordan's first retirement press conference.
Edited because, as I re-read thread, I saw that I had put a video, not a gif. Will try to fix later.
In the spring of 1970, Sport magazine polled 400 MLB players on division winners, pennant winners, MVPs, etc. They had the Reds vs the Orioles in the World Series, but were 3 years too early on their MVP picks.
Love the MLB 100th Anniversary patch on the lower rib area of Reggie's sleeveless vest, and the fact that he apparently batted with his hat crammed down in his back pocket.
Orr vs. Dryden
Playing with cotton in his ears.
Bird vs. Magic
Do you believe in miracles?...YESSSSS!!!
