A panoramic view of the World Series Celebration - The Rob Arra Collection
"You Gotta Believe !!!" read the scoreboard in right field. Over 45,000 fans needed to be told, because what they were witnessing did not seem real. A team that started the season losing 14 of 20 games, that was predicted to finish far behind Oakland and Seattle in the playoff race, that lost Game 1 of each post-season series, and that was trailing 5-0 in the seventh inning in the elimination Game 6, had just won the World Series! Seconds after Troy Percival retired San Francisco Giants leadoff hitter Kenny Lofton for the final out, Angels Stadium (then known as Edison International Field) became a scene of absolute pandemonium - SNAP! The moment is now preserved for all-time, and is available for your wall!
With photographer Rob Arra's perfect panoramic technique, everything in the wild scene is in perfect focus, making you feel like you are actually there, at the game, watching history unfold before your eyes. From the Thundersticks and Rally Monkeys, to the Fireworks and Streamers, to the flashbulbs and video cameras, to the victory mob on the field and the pure joy in the stands - it's all here! Also, printed in the bottom right border is a chart of the final scores from each series game - from the tight 4-3 Giants victory in Game 1, to the miraculous Angels 6-5 comeback win in Game 6, to the 4-1 Game 7 final. This beautiful piece of baseball history deserves a nice frame and a prominent space on the wall of your home or office. The perfect poster for the wall of any true long-suffering Angels fan, and a valuable collector's item for years to come!
