1980 World Series Champions
Game 6 - October 21, 1980 - Veterans Stadium
Tug McGraw strikes out Willie Wilson to clinch the title.
It is a moment Philadelphia sports fans will never forget. After decades of supporting a franchise that was sometimes close to glory, but was usually miles away from success, Phillies fans were finally rewarded with a World Series appearance, and a chance to clinch at home. In true Philadelphia style, the game was left in the hands of someone who held it together through guts, heart, and sheer will. Tug McGraw was erratic out of the bullpen throughout the series, and was on the edge of disaster in the eighth and ninth innings of Game 6. However, Pete Rose's brilliant deflected catch in foul ground left McGraw with one final challenge. Willie Wilson was no match for the veteran's guile, and it was game, set, and match. This amazing poster celebrates the moment of victory for Tug and the Phillies, when he reached for the sky on his tip-toes, and lifted an entire city straight to baseball heaven! With the ultimate historic photographic image, the official 1980 World Series logo, commemorative script celebrating the one and only Phillies World Series Championship, and an official MLB Properties holographic logo, this is an absolute must for the wall of any true fan!
