The Final Pitch at Shea Stadium
Tom Seaver to Mike Piazza - September 28, 2008
A Panoramic View at Shea Stadium, Flushing, Queens, NY - The Rob Arra Collection
Re-live one of the most historic, most emotional days in New York Mets history! After 45 years at the old round baseball coliseum, the end had come for Shea Stadium. With the sparkling new billion-dollar palace known as Citi Field looming large beyond the left-field bleachers, fans gathered on September 28, 2008 to say goodbye to the sight of countless great baseball moments, including the 1969 and 1986 World Series championships. After 40 all-time Mets greats were introduced to rousing cheers (including names like Jerry Koosman, Dave Kingman, Darryl Strawberry, Dwight Gooden, Ed Kranepool, Willie Mays, John Franco, Lenny Dykstra, Keith Hernandez, and more), the final pitch was all set to take place: "The Franchise", Tom Seaver stood high on the mound, and beloved future Hall of Fame catcher Mike Piazza took his stance to receive one last throw. With the entire scene laid out before you under the lights on a damp fall late afternoon in Flushing...SNAP! The moment is preserved for all-time, and is now available for your wall.
With this poster, you are transported back to that amazing, emotional moment at Shea. Like all prints in photographer Rob Arra's Everlasting Images series, every single detail is in perfect focus, and as you pan across the image you feel like you are right there on the first base line, living through the decades at Shea once again. A spectacular, impossible-to-find panoramic print you won't find anywhere else, this is the perfect size for framing, and is sure to look incredible on your wall and in your collection!
