Friday, June 26, 1998. A glorious New York evening. It's game one of the Shea Stadium portion of The Subway Series, between cross-town rivals New York Yankees and New York Mets. Over 50,000 fans pack the old Flushing park - one of the toughest tickets in town! It's a tight game, 1-0 Yankees in the top of the fourth. Al Leiter on the mound with a man on first and none out. Tim Raines waits for the pitch. SNAP! The moment is preserved for all-time, and is now available for your wall!
With this poster, you are transported back to that evening in New York, to one of the few instances where interleague play became the season's main event. 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 at the stadium. You get a great panoramic view of a packed Shea Stadium - you can read the huge scoreboards, check out the seating configuration and the picnic bleachers in left, see all the action on the field - and all under a stunning purple sunset. This is the perfect item for lovers of Shea, and for fans who were lucky enough to attend the series. It is a work of art and a fine collectors item, worthy of a nice frame and a prominent space on your wall.
