One of the finer "Sosnak's" you will ever see, this is covered in marvelous paintings of the 1960 World Series, devoted to both the Yankees and the Pirates. Illustrations include an image of Maz himself hitting the home run with the dugout going crazy in the background, patriotic New York Yankees top hat and bat logo, awesome image of Maz's homer going over the fence with a helpless Mickey Mantle in center and Yogi Berra in right looking on (the ball lands with figurative explosions coming over the 406 sign). The sneering jolly Pirates logo makes New York fans want to punch him in the nose and Pittsburgh fans to again rejoice. Again, one of the finer Sosnak's ever. Comes in nice wood and glass display case.
