Talk about irony. One of the greatest defensive catchers the game has ever produced - Mickey Owen - is perhaps most known for a costly passed ball during the 1941 World Series The Yankees held a 2-games-to-1 lead entering Game 4 but the Dodgers led 4–3 and two outs for the Yankees in the top of the ninth. But as Tommy Henrich swung and missed at strike three, the ball eluded Owen and rolled to the backstop, allowing Henrich to reach base and extend the game. Four runs followed and the hated Yankees eventually turned what would have been a sure 2-2 tie in the series into a 3-1 edge that they converted into the championship the next day. Included in this lot is a signed card, photos, a game ticket and a baseball autographed by Henrich.
